About Acorn House

Acorn House is an elegant guesthouse in Cape Town. The location in Oranjezicht, a prime residential suburb of Cape Town at the foot of Table Mountain, is exceptionally convenient. The city centre is a few minutes drive away, with the harbour`s Waterfront complex and the blue-gold beaches of the Atlantic Seaboard not much further. All touristic highlights are in easy reach. Near to many restaurants and a trendy deli restaurant is situated just opposite.


Acorn House is a National Monument, over 100 years old, and still smells fresh. Lounge, dining room and bedrooms have been lovingly preserved. Few, careful chosen modern details add to its charm. The nine and a half bedrooms, en-suite, are light-filled and offer exclusive, traditional furnishings combined with timeless elegant fabrics. The beds provide a very good sleeping comfort – this is often praised. Some of the amenities are a hair dryer, international power adaptor, shampoo and soap, and a gown.

Acorn House is a place to escape to. The atmosphere in the classic lounge or in the well maintained garden is relaxing, and invites to stay and indulge. Well chosen music adds to the mood, from South African Jazz or Chill-out tunes to classical music in the evening. A great selection of white and red wines are available, as is a Nespresso bar and so much more.


Enjoy the abundant breakfast which guests say is the 2nd best in the city. In summer, breakfast is served 'al-fresco‘ at the pool, also a great place to chill during the day.

Planning our golf vacation in Cape Town we were lucky to find this small and charming hotel. Friendly and familiar atmosphere and staff attitude add high value to our golf experience. Nice and comfortable rooms, refreshing swimming pool after golfing, self-evident assistance in all our questions were engaging. Ambience of this nice place is multiplied by great crew. Many thanks to all! Bozena

The welcome from staff at Acorn House was fantastic and helped us to quickly find our way around Cape Town, including finding some great restaurants! They were always on hand to give us advice, recommendations, make bookings and give directions The location makes it easy to find your way around the city. Breakfast was plentiful with a lot of variety and the hotel and its facilities were clean, spacious and comfortable. This is good value for money and we would definitely recommend it.
