We had a wonderful stay. The owners are a young couple. They are very welcoming and helpful. Good insider tips for dayspending and restaurants. I would reserve a room for next season already, I'm sure the place will be fully booked.

We had e perfect stay at the Gouverneur Guesthouse. Is a very nice location, good situated in Camps Bay. The host was super friendly and helpful. The only thing that could be improved; It would be nice to have the tasteful Breakfast in the garden also for the peoples that stay in a double room.

Situated a little above Camps Bay main thoroughfare, this is a quiet spot but close to restaurants and bars. Hotel is spotless, well run and central to Cape Town city and V&A Waterfront. Delicious breakfast, poolside sundowners ... What more do you need
