  • "Lovely house"

    18 February 2007

    "Our second stay an the Walden. Lovely house and room. Staff exceedingly friendly and obliging. No tea/coffee making facilities in rooms but both available at any time on request. Position on easily navigated route to both the V & A and Table Mountain. Many restaurants close by. Would use again on any future trip to Cape Town."
