Gay-friendly accommodation

De Waterkant Cottages

There are many hotels, bed-and-breakfasts and self-catering accommodation in Cape Town which suits everyone’s pockets and lifestyles.

Gay and lesbian people will not be turned away from establishments, but there are a number of places which cater specifically for them.

From gay-friendly accommodation like the Grand Daddy Hotel in Long Street, to guesthouses like Amsterdam, which is exclusively for gay men, Cape Town caters to everyone’s taste.

Included in the long list of gay-friendly accommodation is the Pink Rose Guest House, which boasts luxurious accommodation with mountain and sea views. 

De Waterkant Cottages, your stylish home-away-from-home, is in the stylish De Waterkant on the periphery of the city centre, which is known as a gay-friendly hub in the city. The quaint, semi-detached cottages, which date back to the 1760s, offer privacy, a cleaning service, a pool and several other must-have mod-cons. 

De Waterkant Village, which includes the cottages, is an avant-garde, cultural urban refuge highlighted by the abundance of restaurants, art galleries, gay clubs, salsa clubs, tapas bars and Parisian-inspired cafés.

The four-star Glen Boutique Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Cape Town that specifically caters for a gay clientele. The casually chic hotel is in Sea Point, close to some of the city's best gay nightspots.
