Loved our stay at Bluegum Hill. Our hostess, Aissa, couldn't have been more helpful with sightseeing advice, coordinating our transportation, providing weather reports, etc. Would recommend it to everyone!

Having 2 separate rooms adjoining a common lounge room on the pool level was ideal for our reunion with international colleagues. Staff were like family and breakfasts were a treat. Steps required a reasonable degree of fitness and would be a problem for people with knee or hip issues.

The owner was really helpful whit everything from booking tee times for golf to suggest and book very nice restaurant's. Great breakfast. The penthouse we had was outstanding whit the balcony overlooking Cape town. The stay at Bluegum Hill was far over expectation and one of the main reason was the owners personally touch and service mind. If you are... More

Friendly caring owner. Good Communication. Excellent breakfast, comfortable rooms and stunning view. What more can one ask - pretty central. Must be able to climb steps as it is on the top of the hill.

This guesthouse is a great place to relax. Run by very friendly and kind people. A five star attention is given to the guests by way of very fine details. At walking distance from the Waterfront. Situated in a beautiful and safe area. A good choice in Cape Town!

We spent 4 nights in this wonderful establishment and it felt like home. Aissa could not have been more helpful. High above the soccer stadium and in view of the waterfront, this gem is a $3 cab ride to the city, waterfront, or anywhere else you want to go, and Aissa takes care of calling the cab. Breakfasts were excellent... More

We stayed in the Penthouse apartment which is separate from the main B&B and has it's own entrance. It was charming and private with a superb view over the bay and waterfront. Every amenity one could need was provided with all the benefits of being able to enjoy the breakfast at the B&B if we wished. Aissha was very helpful... More

A beautiful B&B, decorated with taste and a spectacular view. The staff were extremely pleasant, breakfasts were a feast! Be advised, if you have difficulty climbing stairs, this may not be the B&B for you. Our bathroom was a little small but hey, how long does one need to spend in the shower!
