This is a very convenient and central B&B to stay in. With the most welcoming and friendly welcome that anyone could ask for. The rooms are very well furnished and very comfortable. A real homely feel with a relaxing lounge. If you sit on the patio you have the view of Cape Town and the stadium and a night ll... More

The location is perfect to explore CT, most nice and interesting places are within a short distance, with a car you are within minutes either at mountain table, signal hill or to district six or waterfront. Parking is out on the street with a guard at night. What makes the Bluegum different to other guesthouse is it's view down to... More

We have previously stayed in the guest house itself which we like a lot,, but this time it was fully occupied for the days we wanted.. Instead we were offered the flat calle Trianon , also in Green Point. We are more than happy that we accepted the offer. The flat was fitted with more than what you normally get.... More

Excellent location, lovely people. My room was just right for me. The view was great and the breakfast delicious. Very friendly owners who were very helpful. Well stocked honesty bar too. Good exercise climbing up and down the steps.

Friendly smiles and helpfulness from the moment you walk in the door until until you walk out. Will definitely be using every time I come to Cape Town! View is breathtaking and place is very neat. Super clean and everything smells and looks like brand new. Only thing I would change is to have booked earlier.

We have selected Bluegum Hill because of the promised views over Cape Town, the Waterfront & Stadium, Robben Island and the Ocean - and we definitely loved these amazing views - for breakfast, for sundowners, at night and whenever we were in the guesthouse. Or even when chilling in the pool! Just great views! The rooms are a bit smaller... More

Always very good value and well placed for Cape Town. We have used numerous times and always treated well and made to feel at home. Having a garage for the car is excellent. Views and breakfasts excellent.

Fabulous hilltop views from the penthouse. Lovely breakfasts, worth booking! Not walking distance to restaurants and cars parked in street but we didnt have any trouble. Helpful hostess. Really I can just reiterate what others have said. We would go again.

Alissa and her staff were great. Alissa made us very welcome, and was very helpful with advice and sorting things out - including a problem with the hire car! Bluegum has a lovely eclectic range of furnishings. Our room was very comfortable with the added joy of a spa bath in the ensuite. There is a well stocked honesty bar,... More

Aissa is a great host and made us very welcome, with excellent recommendations and advice of where to and where not to go. Room 5 is lovely with a great view to wake up to. Breakfast on the balcony leads to a long, relaxing breakfast.... Perfect start to the day. Looking forward to seeing you again on our way back.
