Bantry Bay Guesthouse is a wellkept little guesthouse in the heart of Bantry Bay located in a quiet sidestreet and only minutes away (walking) from Sea Point's shops, restaurants and supermarkets as well as the beach. We stayed 5 nights in a double room (ensuite) in the basement of the house with a nice, little patio (with tables and chairs... More

I was really lucky to find availability in this guest house during New Year's, since the whole city seemed to be fully booked. I could not have found a better place to stay. I spent two nights here, in a very cosy room with my own bathroom. The location was excellent, close to the My Citi - tourist bus route.... More

This is a perfect place if you are looking for a comfy bed, clean place, and nice and accommodating owner. Ed was really helpful. Also really nice, quiet area with space... More

I'm traveling for an extended period and looked high and low for a place that was reasonably priced in this area of town and I was pleased with my decision. The good: The location is unbeatable. 10-15 minutes to the beach, close to a bus stop, 15-20 minute walk to a main strip with restaurants and grocery stores. The owner... More

I spent three weeknights here, and my expectations were greatly exceeded. My room was spacious, clean, secure, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was nice and clean, and the shower was especially good. By mistake, I'd booked for two people even though I was traveling alone. Still, I thought the price was extremely fair so I was happy... More

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.
