Cape Town Accommodation Question

Jump to last reply

I am getting down to finalizing the details of our 2012 trip to South Africa. Thank you all for the earlier advice--we settled on Mashatu instead of Victoria Falls/Chobe, gaining two nights of safari at less cost.

Our agent has recommended Abbey Manor in Cape Town. It looks lovely and gets good reviews, but I am considering whether an upgrade to the Cape Grace is worth it. This will be for the last three nights of our trip, with an evening departure on the fourth night. The extra cost would be almost $300 US per night. What do people think? Anyone stayed at Abbey Manor? Is there somewhere else we should consider? We will be there on a Saturday/Sunday/Monday, if that matters. I like to be able to walk to restaurants and cafes if possible. From Abbey Manor, it looks like we would need to take a taxi, as we will not have a car. Are taxis easy to obtain?

Once again, thanks for any and all advice.
