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.

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.

Aissa and her staff really made an effort and succeeded to provide true hospitality: arranging pick-up service, taxis, car hire, general tips to visit Cape Town, room availability, breakfast, atmosphere, the whole lot.
