The warm welcome we received from Thomas and Johanna continued the four nights that we stayed in the Guesthouse. The personal approach made us feel at home. The rooms are very good and ours had a nice view at Lion's head. The Guesthouse is perfectly located on walking distance from the beach and restaurants of Camps Bay. It also have... More

What a beautiful place, the staff was so friendly. The room was very nice, bathroom was amazing! Must say the only thing that was bad, was that me and girlfriend only stayed for one night. If looking for overnight in this area, will recommend this place!!

We stayed at the guesthouse for 2 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful (e.g. calling Robben Island tours to check availability for us, etc.), the room we had was spacious and neat, the bed very comfy. The location is great, a bit away from the busy seaside boulevard, but still within a short walking distance from it. Nice... More

We had a great stay at Le Gouverneur! Joh and Tom only took over the guesthouse a few weeks ago and they have already made it their own. They are really doing an awesome job, are incredibly kind, forthcoming and helpful! The rest of the staff is also very nice and genuinely welcoming. The breakfast is great and there is... More

We stayed at Le gouverneur guesthouse in early September. It was a perfect experience. The new owners just started but we didn't experience that at all! We had a very nice, spacious room for a very acceptable price! The restaurants are at walking distance, and therefor the beach is as well! Enjoying the sunsets overlooking Camps Bay is a pure...

l am already jealous of anybody who has the chance to spend even one day at Le Gouverneur Guesthouse. The location is great. It is very close to the most beautiful beach of Cape Town, namely Camps Bay. You will have the best service.

Absolutely fabulous location. Upper class neighborhood, near the beach, near some of Cape Town’s best restaurants and bar spots, very safe to wonder around, 10min walk from the Hop-on-Hop-off bus. Besides the great ocean views, you are guaranteed a warm welcome by Thomas and Johanne who manage the guesthouse (new ownership since August 2014!). They went out of their way... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at Le Gouverneur - everything was excellent. The rooms were of high quality and lovely bathroom, with towelling dressing gowns etc. The breakfasts were always delicious and plentiful. The owners were also really friendly and helpful in giving local advice. The guesthouse is in Camps Bay, which we preferred to central Cape Town as... More

Le Gouveneur was the perfect couples retreat. The little touches such as great shower pressure, underfloor heating, comfortable bedding, the opportunity to eat breakfast in our room and enjoy drinks on our balcony watching the sunset made this the perfect place to start our holiday. The close proximity to Camps Bay town centre and secure parking at the guesthouse made... More

We found the location and view very nice, the window view was beautiful. However, the service was lacking. Armand, the manager, was there to receive us when we first arrived, but to our surprise he and his staff were very hard to find during our stay. We did not have a phone in our room to call the front desk... More
