I hope that you are well and keeping busy. Thank you again for a wonderful visit. Really I can’t think of how you or the team could have been more helpful, and the tours with Chris were wonderful – absolutely first rate. I am looking forward to seeing you all again at my next visit at Christmas.

The Parker Cottage was amazing! Specious, clean and had everything we needed. The staff were incredible. Very attentive and professional!

Besides, we were very happy to stay with you guys in the Parker Cottage. My expectations were high and have been perfectly hit. We loved the Victorian style and everyone was kind and helpful. Maybe one could change things, but it puts me in an awkward position to find something improvable. Excellent job. So keep on going!!

Daniel and Sonja, Munich, March 2016

There was widespread consensus that our stay at Parker Cottage was simply superb. From the scrumptious breakfasts to the uniquely decorated rooms and the endless support from the parker team there was nothing we would have changed! We look forward to returning as soon as we possibly can and will spread the word.

The Peretti Family, March 2016

We just want to thank you for being such incredible hosts to us during our stay in Cape Town. We've honestly never felt such warm hospitality and generosity at any other inn or bed and breakfast we've ever stay at and we've stayed at quite a handful around the world! The entire team was such a treat to get to know over our brief stay. Phil, thank you for jumping right in and getting us going on the right foot. And especially Penny, thank you so much for helping arrange our driver out to Stellenbosch on such a short notice and doing it with a smile on your face the entire time. Speaking of which, do you happen to have Chris's email address? We'd like to thank him personally for the service and to thank our driver Kyle, who was so incredible and so fun to spend the day with. Without a doubt, we'd recommend your beautiful place to anyone and everyone we know who's lucky enough to visit Cape Town. We ourselves are already scheming for our return and wouldn't stay anywhere else but Parker Cottage.

Just writing to say thank you for a wonderful stay in such a lovely place. I enjoyed the stay and the tours - and thank you also for introducing me to Chris and his team who made great guides. Phil, will share with you any good pictures that i think are worth the while!

Nice to be hearing from you again. We and the parents really enjoyed staying at Parker Cottage. Especially, the family like atmosphere was great, again. We will definitely come back

Thanks Phil once more! It was definitely our pleasure and can't find anything to comment on. Just please pass our special thanks to Tomas because he was such an incredible host to us. We will definitely stay at Parker Cottage if we ever visit Cape Town again - and I certainly hope that I will!

Outi and family, Finland, March 2016

What a fabulous trip we had to SA. Phil, Parker Cottage was a perfect spot for us. I will highly recommend you to anyone we know heading to Cape Town. You have such a beautifully located guest home with a wonderful staff. Tomas and Penny were always such a help to us and so incredibly kind - as were you. We felt at home in your kitchen and our room was quiet, lovely, and comfortable. The breakfasts on your lovely open air porches were outstanding. Chris, was also a huge help driving our group. We found him so interesting, professional, and just an all-round nice guy. Thank you again for all your advice and assistance. Who knows? You may see us again with grandchildren one day!

Patty and family, March 2016

I've been sitting on this for a couple of days trying to think what could have been better...and I can't think of anything! What you do there in Parker Cottage is lovely..............it really does feel like 'coming home'. Your team are great, the breakfasts are to die for, the rooms really comfortable, your location is excellent...........we feel the area is a second home almost. We love Rifiki's and The Millers Thumb! Interestingly the heritage style isn't normally my choice ........but I really love Parker Cottage. What you do, works.

Terry and Julie, Analucia, March 2016

Many thanks for your kind message. Yes, we had have a long journey to Hamburg (21 hours), but without any problems. Back home we are missing the summer in Cape Town very much. It was a very nice stay in your hotel and we remember the time very gladly.

Stephan and Elisabeth, Germany March 2016

As to your question, if anything at Parker Cottage could have been better, the simple answer is 'No'. We've been talking about how we all felt welcome, the delightful breakfasts and the well kept rooms. Even the bed and pillow were satisfactory :) (Not always the case at hotels.)

Goran and Eva, Sweden, February 2016

Well, where to start. I wanted to thank you all for the huge amounts of effort you went to, ensuring my stay was perfect, and it was! Parker never disappoints and I have been spoilt, my expectations for B&Bs are now so incredibly high...what have you done?!! I appreciate everything you did for me more than I could ever say and I will return to you for many years to come, I am certain of this. It's always great to stay at the same place and try out the different rooms, they are all so beautiful and so different. I absolutely loved my room this time around. The bed was enormous and there was ample storage space. It's such a homely place. You were all so kind, always smiling and so welcoming, I felt so comfortable and safe staying at PC and I will continue to write more about all of the above on TripAdvisor very soon! Another glowing review coming your way... Thank you so much for all that you did and for the warm welcome etc. Have a wonderful week and I cannot wait to be back soon!

Hannah, UK, February 2016

The visit was as always "feel at home". Always very friendly and "we feel at home". Starting the vacation in Cape Town and stay at Parker Cottage is an absolute must. We were also happy (but not surprised) that also Eva & Göran liked the hospitality.

Peter, Pia, Eva and Goran, Sweden, February 2016

I apologize for our delay in replying. We wanted to make sure we wrote to you to thank you so much for such an amazing stay at your beautiful "home away from home." Unfortunately we returned so late from watching the sunset from the top of Table Mountain and from dinner on our last night and had such an early morning flight the next day, we were unable to thank everyone and say goodbye in person. We were absolutely overwhelmed by the level of service and by such a wonderful staff. What a beautiful place and beautiful people you have! We felt so taken care of and our biggest regret was that our stay was so short! Because our time was short, we tried to fit in as much as possible! Tomas, thank you for asking about our shark dive adventure. It was an amazing trip! We saw several sharks and we saw a shark attack a seal right at our boat-it was so close it actually hit our boat! Also, you were right, it was quite something to watch the sunset from the top of Table Mountain. Absolutely gorgeous! It was a beautiful end to our time there. Thank you so much for getting the tickets for us and arranging for transportation! It all worked out perfectly! Our entire stay was unforgettable and we fell in love with the area (and Parker Cottage and staff)! Our trip to the Winelands on our first day was splendid as well as the tour of the peninsula the next day. We can't say enough about our driver, Chris. We adored him and he also made our stay one we will never forget. I was very disappointed to realize that because we were so busy, we never got a picture of Chris, Tomas, or Phil. Could you possibly help me out with that? We were able to get some of the kitchen staff and others. I would love a picture of Chris with his car (possibly in front of Parker Cottage) and of Tomas and Phil as well. I would appreciate it as the people there were such a huge part of our great experience in South Africa-I'd like to add them to our photo book. Again, thank you so much for all of your assistance before, during and after our stay! The food, the accommodations, the gardens, the people, the comfortable beds, the honesty fridge, the recommendations, the amazing personal touches (and whoever ordered that perfect weather!?)...it was all so beyond our highest expectations! We can't wait to return!
