I stayed here for two weeks during a study trip. Great people working there. The breakfast was nice, made as you want it. They helped me with everything I could need. Very nice with fresh milk for my tea, and home made biscuits in the room as well. I got a lovely room with a Table mountain view, very beautiful.... More

I agree, the room: “Mountain View” you were in, does have a lovely view over the most beautiful mountain here in Cape Town, which we have the privilege to... More

Graham and his team made my business trip a home away from home experience. Excellent fresh breakfast spread and friendly staff. Thank you, I will certainly book again when I am in Cape Town on business.

Ideally located for the race. Also conveniently within walking distance of restaurants and not far from other shops. Nice rooms - very comfortable, friendly service, good breakfast - would definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for three nights as part of the two oceans marathon and a short Easter break in Cape Town. Excellent spot tucked away from the hub bub with some decent restaurants within walking distance. Will be looking to stay here again come next year's Two Oceans.

I stayed in the Africa Room and it was delightful - small and intimately comfortable - great for the few days I would be alone before my love joined me for the weekend. Graham (the owner) and Christel (the manageress) were attentive ensuring that my every need was fully taken care of. This little haven is ideally located, close to... More

I found this Guest House to be of superior quality - I really enjoyed my stay and found the staff so helpful. Well done for making a business trip so enjoyable - I could not wait to get into my room at night and enjoy all the luxury that was offered.

I found the guest house quaint and homely. I was staying in the executive suite, which was roomy and had two bedrooms and a lounge. I found the floors a little creaky and the limited channels on the TV was a frustration for me. The bathroom was quite dated and overall I felt that the price of R1100 for one... More

Two relaxing nights at Cape Town's Harfield Guest Villa was enough to convince us that we'll be back soon. Tastefully furnished, the Classic suite was ideal for our anniversary with all the trimmings one would like to see including branded chocolates on our pillows. The room is spacious and the bathroom even more so. The free broadband wi-fi was appreciated... More
