What a find! De Tafelberg is a lovely, homely, guest house a two minute drive from Kloof street. There was secure parking for our car. Our room was comparatively big, beautifully and tastefully decorated with a private balcony. Everything was pristine, clean fluffy towels were in abundance, and the shower with all condiments, hot just when you needed it. The... More

We stay there from 9-12-2015 till 13-12-2015. It was a wonderfull stay, and Ann and the crew gave us a pleasant time in the Guesthouse. This is the place to stay in Cap Town. Clean place, good breakfast and good tips for dining places.

Having been disappointed with the accommodation last time we came to CT we were recommended here by our Travel Agent in UK who used to live locally. It was an excellent recommendation. It is near enough to town to get in easily, very near to Camps Bay and spectacularly located at the foot of Table Mountain with views right across... More

As someone who is accustomed to staying in nice hotels this was a very different and nice experience. The owners have done a nice job in keeping the place and service top quality in a homely setting which can be hard to pull off. The location is in a very nice area and I had the view of table mountain... More

Stayed for three nights at the end of our three week trip round South Africa. First class accommodation. Nice big room with terrace. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Excellent breakfasts. Ideally situated in a quiet location at the foot of Table Mountain, only 15 minutes by taxi to the waterfront.

It would be unfair to reduce this guest house to the amazing view because the modern rooms (electricity in the bathroom ;-) )and the breakfast cam easily match the view. The hosts are friendly as well. That's all you need. Hope to be back soon.

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
