Location for exploring Cape Town very good. A stunning bungalow with beautifull rooms and views . The staff were very friendly and helpful .Breakfasts were imaginative and delicious, especially lovely if you sit on the balcony to enjoy . We loved our room ( number 10) . Would visit again.

again, it was a wonderful and perfect stay at the Cape Riviera. It was our fourth stay at this wonderful place with an amazing view over Capetown and the waterfront. Everybody of the group enjoyed the stay. We will come back for sure!

Nothing to complain about. This is a lovely property with divine staff, very friendly and efficient. Rooms are very nice. Breakfast is great. Our room had amazing view of Table Mountain from on side and across to V & A Waterfront from the other. You can pre book on site parking -but be quick, there are only 2 spots. We... More

Friendly reception. Disappointed that I had no view of the harbour/ ocean as I had expected. Lovely room décor, but TV is dated, there was no remote for the TV and the bath was dirty. Also a friendly note that diabetics need sweetener and cannot have sugar. I would like to suggest that you offer sweetener as well as sugar.... More

The staff could not have been more helpful. Nothing a problem and the constantly changing "breakfast special" made a refreshing change to the usual "full english" which was also on offer. The position of the guest house was within easy walking distance to the "hop on-off" bus stop. The view from room 10 is superb and sitting out on the... More

We visited Cape Riviera at the end of our beautiful but exhausting 3 week tour true South Africa. We hoped for a relaxing and luxurious stay at this 4 star establishment. Fortunately we were not disappointed. The staff was kind and helpful. Breakfast was freshly prepared and each morning there were 2 or 3 creative specials to choose from. The... More

We stayed at the Cape Riviera for 4 nights in Sep '14 and had an amazing time! This guest house is in an ideal location, and being right by the reservoir always made it a great landmark to find where we were. The views were amazing - we were spoilt in staying in room 10 - this room had the... More

We stayed only one night. Very nice hotel, nice room, good breakfast. Short distance to Tafelberg and also city center. Definitely a recommendation. Must be very nice in summer when you can enjoy the pool.
