Long due Review. We stayed at Purple house towards the end of July. It was a fabulous experience. The location cannot be better than this place as it centrally located. Henk and Guido literally went out of their way and helped plan our stay in Cape Town. We used to look forward to describing our day to them whenever we... More

A fantastic welcome to Cape Town, Guido & Henk made us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. From the moment we arrived, they helped in every way. The room is spotless, stylish and comfortable and the bathroom is amazing! Guido makes a superb breakfast which we enjoyed on the patio and there is a roof terrace with a... More

We had an Awesome time staying with the Awesome Guido and Henk. Nothing was a problem and they were friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. We had a couple of problems with credit card bookings elsewhere and they just sorted it out for us. Same with cell phone issues and again nothing but helpful. Great view of Table Mountain... More

We had a very comfortable, clean 2 bdrm apt. The location was very convenient with good shopping, and restaurants galore. Henk took us to the apartment which was just 2 blocks from their B&B. We had a quick orientation, and lots of advice about local attractions, and suggestions for dining (Beluga, an easy walk on a warm night was a... More

All the reviews here are true and accurate. Look in the dictionary for the word "hospitality" and you will find photographs of Guido and Henk, the owners and hosts. We stayed in the guest room in the main house and our stay was truly memorable. Excellent breakfasts by "Chef" Guido and superb assistance and guidance from "Concierge" Henk. They went... More

No need to look elsewhere, if you don't stay here you will really be missing out. This is the perfect place to stay in Capetown! With only the 1 room and the welcome and advise you receive from Henk and Guido you really feel like you are staying with friends. The location is perfect in a lovely safe area of... More

Having travelled to 75 countries, I have stayed in everything from the Hilton in Cairo, to pods in Tokyo but the Purple House in Cape Town is somewhere special, somewhere which becomes home rather than another faceless hotel. Within five minutes of arrival, we were relaxing on the roof terrace drinking tea overlooking Table Mountain. The room offered you space... More
