Wonderful B & B in a comfortable suburb of Cape Town. Loved the safe, walking distance to several lovely restaurants. Enjoyable to have a few nights outside of the busy downtown area. Felt very welcomed!

Quiet, friendly, a great place to stay. Less expensive and much more comfortable than the sterile hotels on the waterfront. Convenient to UCT and a short ride from downtown, the Harfield really is very hard to beat.

Great location in the Cape Town area situated between the airport and the Cape Town waterfront. I had the opportunity to enjoy the "Cottage" which was spacious, clean, and very comfortable in all regards. The breakfast had many options allowing a newness each day. Common areas are well kept and very comfortable. Quite location in a nice residential area. As... More

We were in need of a B&B near Newlands, and this seemed to be in the right place, however it is a good 20 mins+ to the ground, and other places are nearer. The room we had was dark, the ceiling fan didn't work so it was very hot during the night and so no real sleep. Also the floor... More

Thank you for your review. We do appreciate you taking the effort to write it. First of all I would like to apologize for the fan in the bedroom not working, as well as the standing one. The batteries in the remote were replaced and the fan in the room is now working perfectly. We were unaware of that. As... More

From the spacious, comfortable rooms with country character to the warm, attentive and generous hosts, it's hard for me to imagine better accommodations in Cape Town, especially for the price. Throw in a terrific location and meals (which I didn't get a chance to try this time but certainly looked delicious!) and you have something special. I definitely plan on... More

We have just returned from 9 nights at Harfield. Graham, Christel, and the rest of the staff will make your stay so enjoyable. The rooms are comfortably furnished, and the breakfasts are amazing. If you like a quiet drink in the evening, there is a great selection from the 'honesty' bar in the lounge or your 'mini bar' in your... More

We stayed for 5 nights at the end of January and loved it. Graham is a fantastic host and is so helpful. Fantastic breakfast, great rooms and service. Would recommend to anyone! It's located in a nice quiet neighborhood and a street away from a number of nice places to eat/drink. Great views and just a 10 min drive from... More

A home away from home. I will be back, but with more friends! Neighborhood was excellent, alot of nice cafe's and restaurants within walking distance. Owner and staff very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Even printed out a walking map for me! Would highly recommend. .a bit far from Cape Town city center.

The owners were really friendly and cook a delicious breakfast! We stayed in one of the 2 bed cottages and the accommodation was excellent. It had everything that you need and was very comfortable. Highly reccommended and well located.
