I liked the homely feel of the place. The host was very hospitable and friendly. It's easy to access most tourist sites from this venue. I loved the breakfasts and would not mind coming back in the future.

I would highly recommend this guest house, great location in Newlands overlooking the park, very comfortable rooms with ample parking in courtyard. Warm friendly staff who went out of their way to accomodate my specific requests and made my stay a very pleasant one. Thank you Harvey, great service.

I have stayed at The Oak and Vine for business trips every time I come to Claremont. The previous managers were amazing, with the feeling that you were truly in your own home. However, I was unpleasantly surprised this past week. Firstly I had booked the King Protea Room but was told it was booked so I took a cottage.... More

I was recently very upset to find that the Oak and Vine Guest House is not at all the way it was only a few months ago! I had previously visited here on business in January of this year. I had the most wonderful experience. The manageress Hilde was very professional, heart warming and served us the most wonderful breakfasts... More

We stayed at the Oak and Vine for 4 nights (booked for 8) earlier this month. We booked the Squirrels Cottage (self catering) because we were travelling with our baby and required cooking facilities. We were very disappointed with the accommodation. The "cottage" was tiny! It consisted of bed in one room with barely enough room around the bed for... More

This is a good guesthouse at reasonable price. Everything was as expected and the stay was hassle free. The breakfast was good, the room comfortable and the service efficient and friendly. I would stay there again.

I have been going to the Oak and Vine for a few years on regular trips to Cape Town. Many of its good qualities remain the same: a great location for exploring the city, the southern suburbs, the beaches, and also for heading east to Stellenbosch and points beyond. The house and cottages are Dutch colonial style, and are lovely.... More
