Verified reviewexcellent

Our week long stay at Westbury House was absolutely lovely! The accomodations were beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast option tasty and convenient. Our hosts, John and Shirley were wonderfully friendly and helpful. We hated to leave! We would highly recommend Westbury House to anyone planning a trip to Cape Town. We hope to return again.

I spent a wonderful time at Westbury House in October 2008. My room (garden room) was very big and well equipped with a nice kitchen and a bar. I felt any time at home from home. John and Shirley booked trips, rented a car for me and helped me with any problems I had. I can highly recommend Westbury House to anyone visiting Cape Town.
