Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

Verified reviewexcellent

Little Scotia is located in an absolutely beautiful part of Cape Town. Almost in the shadow of Table mountain and the lush vegetation of Rondebosch. It was quiet during the night without any traffic noise from the main roads. Although there are a large numbers of rooms, all have a lovely patio shielded by either plants and trees or wooden partitions. The room was clean and well-maintained. Michelle was very friendly and helpful. I had a very late breakfast and was assured that it would not be a problem. Thank you for a most pleasant stay.
