Welcome to Six on Scott

Your Home Away From Home

Six on Scott is a beautiful heritage listed Victorian guesthouse located in the Gardens district at the heart of cosmopolitan Cape Town.

The guesthouse is a stone’s throw from several trendy restaurants and cafés, the Gardens mall, and Dunkley and Wembley Square. Further afield you’ll find the Company’s Garden, Parliament, the National Museum, Long Street and the Cape Town City Centre.

The Gardens district is nestled beneath the watchful eye of Table Mountain, and only a short drive from Cape Town’s most famous beaches, mountains, and the legendary V&A Waterfront. Six on Scott is the perfect place for your stay in the Mother City.

The house was lovingly renovated and altered into a guesthouse in 2010, but the high ceilings, Victorian castings, sash windows, and old pine floors, preserve the unique atmosphere of this heritage jewel that’s been standing for over a hundred years. We’ve combined the old with modern décor and amenities to offer a harmonic blend of contemporary comfort and classic ambience.

Six on Scott is run by passionate owners who provide service with a personal touch, creating that home away from home.

Beautiful Little Guesthouse!

“Such a beautiful little Guesthouse. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very clean and felt so cosy. Tea and coffee were always available in the dining room and a lounge and a veranda just to chill. Breakfast was delicious with lots of options. Highly recommend and will definitely go back!”

Amy, Australia

Just fantastic!

“I was a little dubious of staying in a guest house instead of a hotel, but this was absolutely the best choice I could have made. My room was incredibly comfortable and decorated so well with comfortable bed and great en suite. The common areas were appointed brilliantly. Breakfast was great! Absolutely delightful and highly recommended!”

Lovely Private Place!

“It´s a lovely place and we enjoyed the stay here. The rooms are lovingly furnished and the whole house has been very well and authentically restored. Breakfast is prepared very nicely and the hostess Anne is very nice. The house is well situated and you can park easily.”

A Home Away From Home!

“I was looking for a comfortable, quiet and well-located place, and Six on Scott perfectly matched my requirements. This beautiful two-storey colonial house has been elegantly restored and offers a pleasant aesthetic experience. Nicely furnished en-suite rooms with comfortable beds, top-notch private bathrooms, cleaned and tidied up every day if so you wish (think historic drought). Great location in Gardens, a quiet neighbourhood in the City Bowl, with a mall and several restaurants and bars, plus Company Gardens, Kloof and Long Street just a few minutes’ walk away, perfect if you don’t intend to rent a car during your stay. Powerful WiFi, great breakfast and, last but not least, Anne and her staff are very nice, welcoming and helpful. Definitely highly recommended!”

Right At Home!

Lovely Guesthouse!

“I would highly recommend Six on Scott to visitors to Cape Town. We were only staying for one night and I wish it could have been for longer. We received a warm welcome on arrival and our room was lovely – beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. The hot water bottles in the bed was a lovely touch, especially as we arrived late in the evening after a long train journey. The breakfast the next morning was excellent. On departure we were given some delicious biscuits as a small thank-you gift. Again, another lovely touch. Highly recommended.”
