Regret no children under
14 years of age

We have a wide selection of rooms from suites with huge kitchens,
rooms and private pools to family suites (with smaller completely equipped
kitchens)…small rooms tucked away at the top of a long thin staircases or
cavernous studios with terraces and his and her bathrooms…
roof gardens, back yards and front stoeps, rooms with private steam rooms
and even the “worst room in the house” with the prettiest wall paper on
earth and a small back yard but absolutely no view whatsoever…
or The Greenhouse suite with its terrace that you will never wish to leave
or the Dorp suite leading out onto our roof garden where we grow tomatoes
and promises you the greatest view in Cape town…

Our prices are varied too…we dearly want Dorp to be accessible to the sort
of people who will appreciate its quirk .. we already have favourite guests
and they’re not always international rock stars…

We like to be old fashioned so please ring us and speak to a real person at
the end of a real telephone who will happily explain what is what and
where is where and which room might suit you best when you visit us…

[we can no longer have dogs here ]
Dorp now has a kitchen cat and is very sadly no longer dog friendly .. 

A list of what you will find in your bedroom or suite:

An espresso machine
A kettle
A safe and a hairdryer
A Smart Television
Good free wifi
Underfloor heated bathrooms
The best bed linen on earth
Views…from everywhere
Heavenly dorp soaps, shampoos etc.
A lemon tree somewhere close enough to steal a lemon for your gin and tonic
Home made pure washed linen dressing gowns
Lots of USB and plug points
…and an occasional little bug from the garden outside


A cafe menu of simple and ethically sourced food is available
after breakfast at 10am until kitchen closes at 9.00pm.

We advise of anything special that we are cooking on the notice board in the cafe
…if you have any special dietary needs or allergies please let us know.

Barista coffee and a good selection of teas are served all day together with our
home baked cakes and scones. We do not have a liquor license and ask our guests
to bring their own or ask us to do this for you? A locker in the restaurant will be
provided for your own use.

Dorp is not open to the public so please let us know if you would like to entertain
guests during your stay and we will, of course, make provision and
notify the front desk.
