I have a unique perspective on Harfield Guest Villa because my wife and I were the first guests. Since I was doing work in Cape Town, I also stayed there by myself for an extended period of time so I've seen it grow over the years. Graham and Jenni are excellent hosts and the other staff are also knowledgeable, friendly... More

I spent 3 months at Harfield in one of the lovely cottages and it really was a home from home. Working away for a long time I couldn't have wished for anything nicer- Graham and Crystal along with all the other staff were brilliant and couldn't have done anything more for us, constantly going out of their way to take...

Took my wife there as a little break for our anniversary and were treated like a king and queen. The room was very comfortable, the shower refreshing and the bath romantic. Also the breakfast was great.

I stayed at Harfield for 3 nights in May. Graham and his staff were fantastic. On one particularly cold evening when I returned from dinner the heater was turned on in my room and a hot water bottle in my bed! Talk about great service. The accomodation is beautiful and my room had a great view of the mountains. My... More

I was absolutely delighted with my well equipped, warm and sunny room! The view of the mountain was an extra bonus! When my son popped in we even had a game of chess with the sun keeping us beautifully cosy!!! The staff go out of their way to be helpful at all times! I was very comfortable and would certainly...

Graham made our stay in one of his cottages an unforgettable experience. He and his team made us feel like home despite being the first time to Cape Town. There may be more renowned neighbourhoods in CT amongst tourists but Harfield Guest Villa in Harfield Village/Claremont is an insiders' tip. We'll come back.

Situated in an older suburb of CT, a great Bed & Breakfast in a quiet and safe area where we walked each afternoon and they served a variety of delicious breakfasts and dinners with a smile and a story.

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!
