We thought this was great! Incredible views of Cape Town, really nice people, really high quality place to stay. No real criticism, although the weak wifi signal was often a pain, but everything else was ideal. Thanks!

We stayed 5 nights at the bluegum hill guesthouse. The hosts are very friendly and gave us many great tips, what to see. Great breakfast in the morning, for a good start in a new day. The location is perfect, very central but in a quiet area. All main attraction are easy to reach. There is a self service bar... More

The guesthouse is in a great location overlooking Green Point and The Waterfront. It's convenient for all the attractions while being far enough away to feel like an oasis. The views are stunning and the rooms comfortable and stylish. Aissa and her sister Ughetta are so welcoming, and gave us lots of help to plan our itinerary and make best... More

This was our first accommodation upon arrival into South Africa, and it was such a warm welcoming place. Sisters Aisa and Ughetta run a beautiful B&B and will go out of their way to help you out. They helped us plan out our stay in Cape Town, arranged for a rental car, and also booked our tickets to Table Mountain.... More

We stayed at the penthouse apartment for our first 3 nights in SA, and we loved it. The location is fabulous and gave us the privacy we needed to unwind. Aissa and Ughetta were great hosts, gave us lots of advice and were very helpful when I left my credit card behind in the safe! We would definitely come back... More

Business trip back to Cape Town, I look forward to staying at this wonderful B&B. Very personalised and caring. I had an early meeting and needed to leave the B&B by 5h30 so they arranged a special Banting breakfast for me so I had a meal before I left. Will always recommend this B&B as a must when visiting Cape... More

It was a pleasure to return to Bluegum Hill and be made to feel so welcome. Everyone is helpful and the standard of accommodation and food is superb. The location is quiet and also convenient for walking to the Waterfront or into the centre of Cape Town

We have stayed at Bluegum on many occasions and have always enjoyed the excellent service and hospitality they offer. Good food and great comfort combined with their wonderful views why would we stay anywhere else?
