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

This is the place to stay, if you want a small and beautiful guesthouse in a top location. Besides great recommendations for restaurants and trips James will make your stay very special. We stayed for four nights in the sea loft room and would definitely come back.

The cheviot place is a small house converted to a guest house. The host James is a great guy, He is very helping, sporty and goes out of the way to help you out. We chose the mountain loft room for two nights and it was huge and had a romantic set up. The place is near to water front... More

This guest house was amazing! The location is perfect and the owner, James, is really nice. He makes breakfast every morning and makes sure that all guests know what they are during in the day. He is really helpful with booking trips and giving recommendations. There is also a really nice balcony for all guests where you have a great... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in April and loved it. The rooms were lovely, the fresh fruit breakfasts delicious and the incredible hospitality provided by James was the icing on the cake. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, with lovely little touches in the presentation and the beds were extremely comfortable. The guest house is situated in a residential... More

We travel to CT often and stay with friends, but as we were with other friends from US on their first trip to CT, we chose a place we could all stay together and Cheviot was that place. And I am so pleased because we got to experience the most excellent service - warm, friendly, and a perfect personal touch!... More

He has great tips if you want to get to know Capetown and everything around. If you want to have a stay that is... More

Our family spent three nights at this great guesthouse in the heart of Green point, just a ten minute walk to the Waterfront. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated - one of the rooms even has a bathtub in the middle of the room ;) James, who owns the BnB, was the perfect, most friendly host. We started... More

James and Brook are great hosts. I have been lucky to call Cheviot my home in Cape Town every 6 weeks for 3 years. I strongly disliked the impersonal nature of the hotels and their stinky food. James serves up a fresh breakfast every day: fruit, yogurt, cereals and eggs the whole toot! The coffee was always great quality. It... More

We had booked three nights but ended up staying five night. James was the perfect host, giving us advice on everything from a superb restaurant, when to visit Table Top mountain, Robben Island & Cape Point. His breakfasts were delicious, the views were stunning & the V & A Waterfront was only 2km away. Very highly recommended.
