I stayed here with my Dad for 5 nights and had a wonderful time in Cape Town. We were met at the airport and taken to Cheviot Place organised by James. James the owner was not there to meet us as he does not live on site which was a little strange at first but great. We met him in... More

The best of this accomendation is The Central area in Greenpoint and the owner James. He takes a lot of his time for all of his guests in order to make their stay fantastic. We will definitely recommend Cheviot to our friends and will come back on our next trip. trank you James.

I don't think we've ever felt as "at home" in a B&B as we did at Cheviot Place. James the owner is one laid back dude - very amiable, knowledgeable and friendly. He doesn't actually live in the property full time so you really feel like the place is yours. Rooms are shabby chic everything you need is available. Honesty... More

We stayed at Cheviot Place for a couple of nights while visiting Cape Town. The room was very pleasant, and the breakfast was excellent. What really stood out, and what makes this a hotel that I've recommended to every friend who's visiting Cape Town is the proprietor, James. He was incredibly helpful and welcoming, offering us drinks when we arrived... More

My wife and I stayed at two different places within three blocks of each other. We were visiting our son who was in that area. After a short stay we visited Addo Elephant Park and the Garden Route area before returning to stay at Cheviot Place. Both places were excellent. We liked Cheviot Place more due to the price, James... More

I've had the good fortune of being able to stay here a few times and find it charming in style, comfortable in spirit, and convenient in location. And the price is right, too! I'd call it "romantic" over classic, but it's feel is great for business as well as holiday travelers. There's a few central spots in and around the... More

To sum it up, the perfect place we could have stayed for a first time visit to Cape Town. The guesthouse is clean, comfortable, spacious, and safe. It is also located in a very nice, beautiful area of Cape Town (Green Point), and is close to most everything in the city itself. The real kicker here is your host at... More

Cheviot place has everything a great guest house needs. Their website gives a really accurate description of the facilities as well as the whole ethos of the place and the photos give a true representation. The building is beautiful and it's well located, out of the touristy bit enough to give an authentic experience but not so much that you... More
