This is a really lovely guest house on the slopes of Table Mountain. The breakfast served on the terrace overlooking Cape Town is fabulous and the owners helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and ours had a direct view of the mountain from our bed. It is within walking distance of nice restaurants but just be aware that it... More

See if you can book the big room at the top . . . To wake up and go to sleep to that view is simply heavenly. I just loved waking up before anyone else so I could make a nice cup of rooibos tea and sit and drink in the beauty of the city and the mountain. The owners... More

This B&B is in a great, safe location with amazing views over the city and Table Mountain. Our room was spacious and modern and decorated beautifully. Breakfast was delicious and our hosts, Kris and Ann, were extremely welcoming and helpful. Would love to stay here again if ever I return to Cape Town.

We stayed 3 nights in this excellent Guesthouse and occupied the 2 rooms near the swimming pool. All facilities & comfort are present and being able to dive into the pool when you step out of your bed is great ! Location is excellent and you get magnificent views of Table mountain and the city. Leave your car in the... More

The rooms are neat and nicely decorated, located in the garden areas of Capetown (3km from city centers). Owners are very kind and helpful. Breakfast great. quite a lot of good restaurants in the vicinity. All in all highly recommendable.

My wife and I travelled to Cape Town and it was our first time in SA. De Tafelberg is an unbelievable B&B and we couldn't imagine a better stay in Cape Town. The owners were super friendly and coordinated day trips and restaurant recommendations. Kris made great eggs and the breakfast spread was delightful. The room we stayed in was... More

This guest house is set close to Table Mountain and has amazing views of the cliffs. The front looks out over the city and the early morning view is incredible. The rooms are luxurious, spotlessly clean and spacious with comfortable beds and air-conditioning or heating as required. The breakfast bar had a great variety of cereals, breads and fruit. Eggs...

We have now stayed at De Tafelberg on three consecutive visits to Cape Town and will undoubtedly be back. For us, the perfect start to our holiday in South Africa. Situated high up in Oranjezicht, there can be no better view of downtown Cape Town and Table Mountain, which is so close, you'd think you could reach out and touch... More
