Fodor's Review

Towering palms dominate the manicured lawns of this peaceful guesthouse straddling the border of Kenilworth and Wynberg, a 20-minute drive from the city. The house is an enormous, stolid affair, built in the early 1920s by a protégé of architect Sir Herbert Baker and filled with dark wood paneling, wood staircases, and fireplaces. Bold floral fabrics and reproduction antiques decorate the large guest rooms. Upstairs rooms benefit from more air and light. Guests often

meet for evening drinks in the drawing room.
