This is a wonderful "find" in Durbanville; a short drive into Bellville and not too far out of Cape Town to commute. The atmosphere and the gentle touch of world class hospitality are well worth it. Oh.. and the almost 'bespoke'... More

The staff are extremely professional and friendly without being smothering. It is safe and secure without feeling caged in. Excellent WiFi coverage which is not easy to access in SA! We would...

The stay at Cape Pillars Boutique Guesthouse was fantastic. The convenience of a hotel with the warmth of a family atmosphere. The rooms are beautiful, functional and tastefully decorated.

We chose Cape Pillars by opportunity as it is very close to the venue where Bruce Springsteen was playing. We stayed there three nights and was a great experience, with a relaxing and quite ambience and a family athmosphere. The girls there treat you like a king!
