Bantry Bay Guesthouse is a good option in Cape Town. Located in a quiet residential area and at a walking distance to the beaches, there are also free available parking places around. So, if you're driving in your trip, parking your car won't be a problem. Moreover, the accommodations are comfortable and clean and the owner is always doing his... More

Our stay at Bantry Bay Guesthouse was fantastic. Ed was an amazing host, very welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable with a cool African inspired decor. The communal kitchen area was also always spotless. The location of the guesthouse is great, as its a quick walk to the myciti bus stop which takes you pretty much anywhere... 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
