We had the plan by my parents who came to Cape Town 2 years ago and stayed at the Villa Belle Ombre. Indeed, Marco, the owner, is always here to help you and to give you some tips about Cape Town region. Above all, the room are really nice with nice bathroom and good matress and the breakfast is awesome,... More

Great spot in Cape Town - a beautiful Victorian-style Guest House - completely renovated in 2010. Charming, calm, very well located (15mn Walk to Long Streel in City Bowl), delicious morning breakfast - Thanks to Marco and Virginie for the great accommodments and the very nice welcome !

I have very mixed feelings about my stay at Villa Belle Ombre. On the positive side. I probably had one of the best sleeps I've had in a hotel and guesthouse in a very long time. The bed was extremely comfortable. The room had ample space. Secure off street parking was available. Great location. On the negative side. No coffee... More

We stayed in the biggest room in Villa Ombre and we loved the big room with a nice king size bed and a small terrace outside. Breakfast was nice and we could sit outside, it's calmer than having breakfast inside around the big table with other guests. We used the laundry service and we had the clesn laundry back the...

I was expecting more from this establishment but found that it delivered below average. The only great thing about it is its central location in Tamboerskloof. The old house is very beautiful but the interior decor does not match.

Lovely setting for location and sight seeing however we did book through booking.com and asked for 2 rooms and one of the rooms for 2 adults and a 10 year old child . When arriving the owner/manager had forgotten about the child and said we could have a different room for 2 of the days and then move back to... More

Marco and Vincent couldn't have been better hosts. From the most incredible breakfast to helpful tips, and activity planning our stay in CT was wonderful. The B&B is well located and an oasis where we could come back from our busy day and relax. Such a nice addition to our vacation that left us with the desire to return. Close... More

Marco was a fantastic host and Vincent cooks a mean breakfast! Villa Belle Ombre (VBO) was a perfect shady spot in a great 'boutique' area of CT away from the hustle and bustle of down town and tourists along the waterfront. Close to little cafes and shops whilst at the foot of Table Mountain, the location of VBO was perfect... More

We had a wonderful time at this guest house. The rooms are lovely, breakfasts delicious, and hosts friendly. We enjoy walking and were able to reach most of Cape Town, and also the peak of Table Mountain and Lion's head, on foot from the Villa. They also do a good deal on car hire, which we used to explore the... More
