We only stayed here for a night before we flew back home, but still, Thomas and Jo were really warm and took good care of us! I fell quite sick the night before I was supposed to fly, and Thomas provided me with medication which really helped with my nausea. Jo also specially prepared a juice blend of Apple and... More

We stayed at Le Gouverneur for two nights at the end of April. Tom greeted us warmly upon our arrival and showed us to our spacious room, with a view of the Twelve Apostoles. In the morning, we meet Joh who, again welcomed us like old friends! Breakfast is fantastic, we loved the fruit shots in the morning (I want... More

Thomas and Jo really are on top of their game as we could not fault the service they provided. We opted for the penthouse for our 3 day stay at Camps Bay and the views were amazing. Breakfasts were a real treat and with the help provided in booking tours etc. this is definitely crème de la crème B&B.
