In a large Victorian family house typical of Cape Town, and only a stone's throw from the lively Kloof Street, you will find the Derwent House, a hybrid between a guesthouse and a boutique hotel. Nine rooms and two apartments – perfect configuration for family travels – are spread across the house. Its inhabitants for a day will love its quietness, swimming pool and green gardens, as well as the fireplace on cool nights. Art lovers will take a fancy at the various works on display in the lobby, transformed in this instance into an art gallery, or in the bedrooms where Derwent House sheds a light on local artists and craftsmen – Carole Nevin, Joanna Orr, Sue Jowell… It is even possible to leave with a favourite of yours, like the colourful antelope painting hanging above your bed. Of course, you will be privy to nature's own work of art, from a private terrace that gives onto Table Mountain in the early morning.
