Loved staying here. Very comfortable and walking distance to several of the interesting parts of town. Living area is a bit cosy, but beds are very comfortable The roof terrace is a lovely addition with great views over to Table Mountain.

This apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Very clean and well equipped. The only problem is that you have to walk up a steep hill to get there. There are some very good restaurants nearby and it is within walking distance of Long Street and V&A Waterfront.

This B and B was wonderful with a lovely room and bathroom. The owners were helpful with activity suggestions, making a last minute Robben Island booking for us, ordering a taxi. It is well located, minutes walk to a large shopping centre and restaurants, and 15 mins walk to the city and waterfront. The breakfast was lovely. This place is... More

Henk and Guido are cheerful, wonderful hosts who went out of their way to ensure that our stay in Cape Town was as enjoyable as possible. They provided us with restaurant suggestions (le café Dijon was our favourite) and day tour recommendations, made last minute reservations for activities – everything as smooth as silk. Many have commented on their attention... More

The Puple House B&B, run by Henk and Guido is not only an affordable place to stay in Cape Town, but is also very well located. Its a mere 10 minute walk from Long Street and a 5 minute taxi ride to the V&A. In addition, the Waterkant itself has several cafés and restaurants which are walking distance from the... More
