the staff was very helpfull and kind. they knew exactly which trips I should take, and I liked the advice. Breakfast delicious. Very cold everywhere (july), even my room. Not so clean. Too far away from the city. Compared to the many 4-star hotels I've visited, I would never give 4 to Cape Riviera Guesthouse.

Were in room 3, nearby the noisy entrance (which of course depends on the other guests), with a very poor view, facing a wall. The professional Manager Michelle was really giving all the needed help and information and the staff was doing perfect work. The location of the hotel was very good, as we had a car at our disposal,... More

I travel often and Cape Riviera is by far my accommodation of choice when in Cape Town. The staff are all wonderful, the rooms immaculate and it's situated closely to all amenities, the city bowl and highways. It truly is a home away from home.

It is always Unique to find a Guesthouse where you get treated like one of the Family. Zanele and Michelle were outstandingly helpful and Friendly. The Interiors are Funky and original, with Beautiful Views over Cape Town. Well done.

We stayed here for 3 nights during a roadtrip and we couldn´t have chosen our "grand finale" for the trip better! We had a lovely, modern furnished, spacious room with a stunning view of Cape Town. Special thanks go to the manager, who - on a rainy morning - took the time to spend about 30 minutes with us, explaining... More

It was a pleasant stay, with a beautiful view of the city and Table mountain. It is easily accesible and central, with friendly and helpful staff. I will recommend Cape Riviera for Family holidays or Business travel.

Besides the charming house and 2 small pools, this guest house has superb and serviceminded staff, a wonderful breakfast, magnificent view and a perfect location in Cape Town. Well suited for pretty much any trip you want to take in and around Cape Town.

What a wonderful place to stay. Fabulous Art deco pieces, fabulous people, fabulous food, great position. Nothing was too much trouble and there is an "honour" bar. Come home late at night and you want a tipple? No problems, help yourself and just make a note in the book. Management and staff are always happy and smiling.. it was truly... More

The room was lovely, the staff were warm and approachable, the breakfast was delicious and the location (within easy walking distance from Kloof Street) amazing. As a solo female, I felt safe and comfortable at all times.
