I travelled to CT on my own in October 2014. Booked this hostel where I stayed for 4 nights because it looked nice and quiet. And it sure was! 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.

This guesthouse is in a wonderful location, Ed was fantastic and gave me some trustworthy local knowledge to help me with my arrangements. The guesthouse is clean and I do not think you can find better value for money. You will experience a friendly welcome. Be prepared to relax in a quiet home by the sea! There are great transport...

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
