Parker Cottage is in fact two Victorian houses (No 1 and 3 Carstens Street), designed by renowned Cape Town architect John Parker in 1895. They are now joined into one.

Parker is a little different to the usual hotel or guest house experience. Rather than being just a conventional place to sleep, we’re trying to create a very much unplugged, urban retreat. So although we offer free, unlimited internet (Wi-Fi and a public PC), we don’t have televisions in our rooms (unless by request), we don`t do mini bars or piped music or even have a reception desk. Parker is the kind of place where you can rediscover the art of conversation, reading, and concentrating on the important things in life. The house is very much your home whilst you stay with us. We’ve tried to keep the house feeling as little like a hotel as possible. The kitchen is the heart of the house but we also have a wonderful sunny veranda, two gardens, two lounges and a private dining room all for your use.

Parker is a social place but only as much as you want to be sociable. You'll be invited to our wine and beer tasting evenings – which occur twice a week and are totally free. There’s no cut off time for our five course breakfasts.
We start at eight and goes on until whenever you want to get out of bed. We like people to spend hours over breakfast (but we can also do fast breakfasts if required)

And there`s more, at Parker, we are striving to combine luxurious hospitality and accommodation with an active concern for the society and the environment. We want to show that luxurious accommodation does not have to cost the resources of the earth or its people: by 2015, Parker aims to be ‘off-grid’ for water heating, electricity, water and sewage and recycling 90% of our waste.

We are passionate about the people of this country and are involved in several social upliftment projects we personally manage or sponsor.

We’re less than 8 minutes by car from the V&A Waterfront and less than 5 minutes on foot from trendy Kloof Street with its cafés, bars and boutiques. We offer free and secure off street parking on request.
