Super hotel , super staff . We spent three days here and couldn't have been treated any better. Breakfast was great every morning. We had dinner one evening which was very good. The hotel was lovely & clean and staff were so friendly and helpful. It is located in a nice area quiet close to most of Cape Town attractions

I must say I initially had reservations of booking here based on location, but the reviews seemed to tell another story, so I took the plunge and booking and my word was I blown away with the luxurious nature of almost everything this guest house had to offer. The interior finishes oozed in style and class with modern amenities in... More

Each room was a unique experience and the historic building was elegant. Decor throughout was wonderful. We came for 4 days stayed 6. This property is owned by a wonderful couple who made us and the other guest during our stay feel at home. Once inside of the grounds, we felt completely relaxed, safe and welcomed. The breakfast was outstanding... More

My husband and I are still reliving our experiences throughout South Africa, one of which was at 51 on Kloofnek. The guesthouse is located in a great, upscale neighborhood - easy walking distance to hip bars, restaurants, shops...and about a 10 minute drive to Table Mountain. The house is very Shabby Chic and very comfortable. We loved our room (comfy... More

Stayed 3 nights at the start of our holiday. 51 is located on the main m62 through town but once inside we were hardly concious of the traffic. It is a very good location for the many restaurants two blocks downhill on Kloof street. The house has been very elegantly fitted out and provided all the facilities we required. Breakfast... More

Spent a wonderful 10 days at this guest house in December. Sakkie & Ann-Marie - who does a marvellous breakfast - are just lovely and pull out all the stops to make you feel at home. Only one down side - I didn't want to leave!

We spent 3 nights at 51 Kloofnek this month and we really loved this place. The accommodation was very comfortable, the owner Sakkie and his team were great and we really did not want to leave. The location is excellent and there are several restaurants within walking distance if you dont wish to get a taxi into town. The breakfast... More

We started our honeymoon at 51 on Kloofnek. The house is beautiful, extremely clean, the breakfast is great and the staff are very friendly. Sakki the owner gave us great information about Cape Town and recommended some great places to eat. The house was really central and we walked everywhere. Would certainly go back and have recommended the place to... More

My husband I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. It was so lovely. Beautifully decorated, lovely and helpful staff, great breakfasts, convenient location and wonderful cakes for guests to eat every day. Just such a pleasant place to stay and a great start to our honeymoon. Thank you!
