We stayed here for 10 nights in April and enjoyed every minute. Located in a safe and convenient area of Cape Town, the accomodation is possibly the best value for money in the city. The room was clean and very spacious with a huge comfy bed, the kitchen has everything we could need and the communal courtyard was perfect for... More

I stayed in the guesthouse for three nights and really enjoyed it. Great value for money and fantastic location. Will definitely be back and I recommend this to people looking for a quiet place to relax and in walking distance to shops and cafés.

Like a home away from home - nice, quiet neighborhood, cute rooms, sunny patio, & well-equipped common areas. The best part is Ed though. He is super helpful and will do whatever he can to make your stay enjoyable. So glad this was the first place we stayed in SA!

Arriving at Bantry Bay guesthouse was a little like arriving home. Ed is a welcoming and charming host that immediately makes his guests feels at home. This pace is spotlessly clean and the interior done with great taste and charm. I loved my stay here and it's a quiet quest house where you get away from the city noise but... More

I keep returning to Alan and Ed's lovely guesthouse every year since 2007! It is perfectly located in Cape Town's safest and most scenic neighborhood. It is simple but comfortable,impeccably maintained,and probably the best value in town! From there,public transport takes you everywhere you need to go,and you can walk down to Sea Point where shops,supermarkets,restaurants and banks cater to... More

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in a safe neighborhood that is conveniently located, this guesthouse is ideal. Not only is it a close walk to local shops and public transportation, it's very easy to navigate around town from Bantry Bay, which is a quick shot to the V & A Waterfront and the President's Hotel...
