I stayed here for business one night and my husband joined me on the second night. Liz is not always at the guest house and seems to expect you to arrange your life around when she is there with regards to picking up the keys. You have to park your car in the street. The rooms are well decorated with... More

I didn't even get a Chance to stay at this place - - I got an offer and was asked to pay all kinds of extra fees - - when I questioned it, Liz never wrote back. I had to go to Cape Town for an Operation and needed a place in Newlands, and fortunately I found another place to... More

Liz was an amazing host. We were down on a school sports tour and she catered for all our needs. Asking what time we required breakfast and serving it superbly. She recommended local eating spots which wear great. Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a place that feels like home. Will be back next year for sure.

Stayed here with a colleague for business. Although the rooms were tastefully decorated and clean there were significant problems. My upstairs room was up some very steep stairs. The room is set up so that you cannot watch TV in bed and the building has a corrugated roof so it is very noisy when it rains (which happens often in... More

Liz is the most wonderful hostess who is passionate about Cape Town and who wants her guests to experience this amazing city in the best way possible. Her B&B is beautifully appointed and we felt like we had arrived home. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Liz, who is so warm and inviting. Best B&B we have ever stayed... More

Especially for a first timer in Cape Town like me, the guest house makes you feel so at home away from home. It all felt like I had not traveled.....that I was still home in my house in Nairobi, Kenya. I liked not only the fabric of the bed covers, the curtain, the view from the balcony that stared right...

The owner and hostess, Liz Wright, is the highlight of the house! She is engaging, warm and friendly at all hours of the day and night. During my stay she was always happy to offer suggestions of what to do and where to go, whereby sharing her love for Cape Town in the process. She even recounted much of the... More

Liz is such a friendly host. The rooms are spacious and cosy with ensuite bathrooms. Very neat and welcoming. The view of the mountain from the balcony outside the bedrooms are spectacular. Definitely the place to stay when in Cape Town.

This guesthouse has the virtue of being small but having excellent facilities. Each of the rooms has spacious "en suite" facilities matching the generous space of the bedrooms. The furniture is of high quality and well maintained and the beds are most comfortable. The owner/manager is most helpful and welcoming. She organised a magnificent tour of the area on the... More
