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.

This is a very convenient and central B&B to stay in. With the most welcoming and friendly welcome that anyone could ask for. The rooms are very well furnished and very comfortable. A real homely feel with a relaxing lounge. If you sit on the patio you have the view of Cape Town and the stadium and a night ll... More

The location is perfect to explore CT, most nice and interesting places are within a short distance, with a car you are within minutes either at mountain table, signal hill or to district six or waterfront. Parking is out on the street with a guard at night. What makes the Bluegum different to other guesthouse is it's view down to... More

We have previously stayed in the guest house itself which we like a lot,, but this time it was fully occupied for the days we wanted.. Instead we were offered the flat calle Trianon , also in Green Point. We are more than happy that we accepted the offer. The flat was fitted with more than what you normally get.... More

Excellent location, lovely people. My room was just right for me. The view was great and the breakfast delicious. Very friendly owners who were very helpful. Well stocked honesty bar too. Good exercise climbing up and down the steps.

Friendly smiles and helpfulness from the moment you walk in the door until until you walk out. Will definitely be using every time I come to Cape Town! View is breathtaking and place is very neat. Super clean and everything smells and looks like brand new. Only thing I would change is to have booked earlier.

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.
