We have stayed at Ascot Gardens a few times and we can highly recommend it. This time we stayed in the Royal Suite, and it is equipped with everything you can wish for. Thank you Barry for another enjoyable stay!

Ascot Gardens is a quiet, affordable oasis of tranquilty and friendship in a spectacular area of Capetown. An ideal base for the city and a perfect start piont for the Garden Route. Friendly management with plenty of experienced advice and a staff of whos concern is the wellbeing of the guests. Barry and Lesley were responsible for making our first time visit a lasting memory of a wonderful holiday. We will return.

Having spent five weeks in China, New Zealand and Australia it was hard to see how anything could better this experience but Cape Town, and in particular Ascot Gardens, won hands down. Its location is ideal for first time visitors to this vibrant and beautiful city - it is within 30 minutes motorway drive from most attractions including the city, Waterfront and beaches and our hosts, Barry and Lesley, could not have been more accommodating during our stay, organising a hire car, recommending local restaurants and nightlife and wonderful excursions. Information and brochures were readily available in the information book in each unit and the leaflets in the computer room (free wireless internet, pre-paid telephone) The cottage was equipped with everything that we needed for our stay. The service was friendly and the cottage was clean and the complex was perfectly safe. The standard of the food in the restaurants nearby was amazing and the value for money simply can't be beaten. Louis on the Block just 150 yards away was certainly a favourite and comes highly recommended. A particular mention must go to our private tour guide John Dougall - particularly knowledgeable, excellent company, luxury vehicle. Wine tasting in Boschendal, visiting Cape Point, the penguins, Table Mountain at sunset, Newlands Cricket Ground, a round of golf and shark diving - it was a packed week and my only regret is that it wasn't a fortnight.

Accommodation was excellent. Family unit was very spacious and clean with a large fully equipped kitchen. Having the extra toilet was a big advantage as we were a family of 5. Gardens were immaculate and pool area and braai facilities were well situated to the unit. Barry and Lesley were excellent hosts. The property is also situated close to shopping centre and restaurants (all walking distance). Only a short drive to sightseeing areas.

This establishment is ideal for holiday makers or business travelling. It has facilities for family re-unions or couples. I really like the extensive library and computer room. Broadband internet and fax facilities are available in the computer room. Brochures of tours and car-hire services are also available in the library. There are two supermarkets as well as several restaurants within 10 minutes' easy walking distance. Although the main road is close by there is no traffic noise. The directions to and from the airport are excellent. The gardens are beautifully maintained and most imaginative. Each apartment has a private patio and braai area. The service is excellent but un-obtrusive. There is a large, well equipped laundry room. A large grassy children's playground is across the road. I have recommended this establishment to friends and business colleagues.
