    The staff are well trained and friendly. The house is a beautiful old Victorian and has so much charm, however, it is in dire need of maintenance. The gardens are beautiful. The breakfast was delicious. The rooms are huge and beautifully furnished.

    Around half of the lightbulbs in this Victorian mansion were blown and needed replacement. The quilt on our bed was stained and I removed it. Bedlinen, although a good threadcount, should be replaced. The roof is leaking.

    I really liked the swimming pools and gardens. The breakfast was excellent. The hotel has a lovely peaceful, homely atmosphere. The staff were very welcoming and hospitable.

    I am a vegetarian and the food options for dinner were very limited however the chef did make an effort to prepare something each day for me which was appreciated. The hotel is on quite a busy road. There were quite a lot of ants in my bathroom which was quite annoying.

    Perfect setting/Garden. Convenient for accessing all major roads by car. Although a few local shops within walking distance, always beware of the people around you. The staff are exceptional.

    A few negatives. I have been staying at Highlands over the past few years and sadly although my very favourite place to stay in CapeTown it is looking tired and the new owners need to address this.

    The staff, the ambiance, the facilities, the breakfasts, coffee by the pool - nothing was too much trouble even when friends and family came to visit.

    Nothing - it was perfect
