This was our 4th visit to Valley Heights and once again we enjoyed a home away from home. Conveniently situated to enjoy the southern suburbs and also wider areas of the City of Cape Town Thanks Bruce & Jeanie see you next December

As part of the United Kingdom International Search & Rescue Team working with western cape paramedics, valley heights was a perfect base for us. Bruce is probably more used to dealing with tourists than fire fighters but we were made to feel welcome and he and Jeanie were perfect hosts! Fantastic setting, safe area what more could you ask for?... More

We stayed here as a base for Capetown and Stellenbosch. Our traveling family booked the accommodation and whilst it wasn't a luxury place it was comfortable. Definitely on the lower end of the budget, your sharing a garden with the owners and a pool. There is a lounge room for catching up so perfect for family get together. Breakfast was... More

Thank you for your review. YES - We are the cheapest in the area so we fill up fast. I would rather have "Heads on the beds " than " Fancy prices and empty beds " ! Glad that you enjoyed the breakfasts. Regards, Bruce L Host More

Fawlty towers in Cape Town. Bruce is obsessed about his eggs in the morning, unnecessary electrical use and security. All very after my own sentiments As an owner of three mini dachshunds ourselves, my partner (not colored) and I could not understand why the three dachshunds barked at me (not white) after 7 days of our 9 day stay here....

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad that you agree with my concern re Electricity wastage and security. We HAVE to try and save electricity to avoid blackouts in the area when the system is overloaded. It is also essential that our security is always 100% and that our guests feel safe at Valley Heights Guest House.... More

We stayed one night and enjoyed it. The setting is in a quite suburban street but with lovely views especially from the Green Room upstairs where we stayed. The garden and surrounding block's trees are soothing. Did not swim but the pool looked a reasonable size and inviting. Efficient service, a little on the fussy side but attention paid to... More

We were very lucky to find this little gem in Kenilworth as a family of 5 and it being a last minute booking. Bruce and Jeanie are very accommodating and excellent hosts. You can see by their exceptional ATD that Bruce is a former principal ;-) and we could not fault anything really. The rooms are well appointed; beds comfortable,... More

Bruce and Genie were very welcoming and warm hosts. We had a family re-union with my father from Johannesburg and my brother from America, so for one week of our stay we had taken up half of the accommodation offered, as we each had our own rooms. We were very satisfied with all aspects of our B & B accommodation... More

Bruce was such an amazing host. I echo what the other reviewers said - this is a home away from home. The room was super comfy. The guest house is serene. The breakfasts were a highlight. Loved my stay there, and will be sure to stay here when I visit Cape Town in the future.
