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?

I chose this guest house based on location, price and excellent reviews. It's located minutes, by taxi, from table mountain, the waterfront and shopping area. I highly recommend your stay here. Breakfast is delicious, plentiful and included in your stay. Laundry service offered and not at high hotel rates. Beautiful view of Cape Town from the pool and balcony. Security... More

The view from our room and the balcony compensates the size of our room, which in fact was called the small room, but it really was small. Breakfast and hospitality are very good and the advice from our hostess for exploring Cape Town were very usefull.

Excellent place to stay in Cape Town. You do need a car and be sure to lock it carefully at night and leave nothing in it as burglaries are not rare. The guesthouse has it's own security guard though. The penthouse is super and no problem going downstairs to the main house to use the pool and wifi. In fact... More

The service was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was comfortable and very well appointed. The location was very central for us with stunning harbour views and excellent breakfasts were served. The interaction with the owners was extremely helpful and friendly.

Thank you so much for your review! So pleased you enjoyed Bluegum Hill, our lovely staff and your December holiday! What a pity about the taxis you experienced. Sometimes it does happen if the driver is perhaps new to Cape Town... hope you have many fond memories of Cape Town with your friends! Best Wishes and Thank you once again... More
