Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
Reading House is a beautifully restored and furnished guest house that catered for my every need during my week long stay.
From the delectable breakfasts prepared by the Manager and Chef Albert, to the huge bath to the cool cotton sheets… A warm gown and chocolate waiting on your pillow.
The attention to detail is German in its precision. Albert seems to remember your every preference and caters for it. Truly outstanding service, especially when I realised how small their staff compliment is!
I loved that there was no TV in my bedroom as I feel it would interfere with the charm of the venue. (There is a TV room, well stocked with DVD’s etc should you wish to watch TV. My self service coffee and tea station was always well stocked, as was my bath salts and all toiletries on offer. My bedroom and bathroom was very well kept, not a speck of dust and I appreciated the warm bath towels. Luxury without the price cringe.
I became ill during my stay and Albert truly went beyond what can be expected. I was both humbled and thankful. Grateful to have arrived a visitor, and having left as a friend.
Reading House has the potential to become an exclusive Boutique Hotel with its unique rich heritage, location and tranquility but above all – individual service. Reading House could easily provide conference facilities for small groups of Executives who require exceptional personal attention, and demand quality.
A great venue for morning tea’s or just popping in for a five star breakfast (I would imagine you need to make a reservation). Take a book with you to Reading House… You will find yourself not wanting to leave!
Reading House in Newlands, Cape Town comes highly recommended. I only wished the weather was warm enough for me to have enjoyed their pool. Next time!
I wish you enough,
