Bluegum Hill Guesthouse was a pleasure to visit. The room was clean and lovely with a gorgeous view. The staff were friendly and efficient. Ughetta was willing to accommodate my dietary needs and helped to find restaurants for lunch and dinner. Thanks to the Parenti sisters, I would be happy to return for another stay.

This delightful guesthouse is truly a home away from home. Owners and staff are very involved and helpful. Delicious breakfasts can be enjoyed each morning with a panoramic view of The Waterfront area and new stadium. Clean and comfortable rooms.

I received a very warm welcome from Aissa, who went out of her way to make arrangements for me during my stay. The house has a great view and the room whilst small had everything I needed. I'll be back!

Stayed at the Bluegum Hill penthouse apartment from April 24-27, 2015. It was the perfect weekend getaway in between two intense weeks of work in Pretoria. My only regret was not having enough time to actually enjoy the penthouse (the view is amazing!) and the rest of the guest house amenities, as my weekend in Cape Town was packed full... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Bluegum Hill. The view that comes along with the delicious breakfast is spectacular. The location is very convenient, and most of all Ughetta and Aissa were incredibly hospitable and helpful. I felt like I was right at home. I highly recommend this place!

Great place to stay. You feel like at home. The room was excellent, very clean, with great view and big enough. You can eat breakfast on the terrace and enjoy amazing view to the ocean. Or have an afternoon coffe or glass of wine in the evening on the swim pool. The owners ( Aissa & Ughetta) are very helpful.... More

Excellent reception by Ughetta And Aissa, climbing daily some stairs, but so worth it ! Beautiful view from the breakfast room and sun terrace with refreshing pool. Self serve bar, great breakfast and central point to start the visit of the city and the Cape. On top : quiet at night. We'll be back.
