The staff is very helpful and careful and the building is beautifully decorated. Great rooms and breakfast. It is located Close to the main street with many Restaurants and has a beautiful garden. The view of the terrace in the first floor is astonishing.

This is a charming house with spacious apartments, very good breakfast, swimming pool and a self-service bar. Wine is also available for purchase directly in the house. Very good deal for a family. Definitely can recommend.

We stayed a second time in this hostel. Only shared bathrooms and nothing special but everything you need, peacefull and clean. Location is great and the safe parking option is very welcome. The staff in the backpackers is very helpful. Good option if you want to stay near Capetown centre and Long Street.

I would not choose this BB again - the access was difficult - the shower was cold - the bed was small and uncomfortable and creaky - the floors creaked and the furniture was depressing. The bathroom overlooked a street with inadequate curtaining and someone looked in while i was on the throne. Our room was next to a store... More

My stay at the mountain manor was very entertaining never a dull moment:) I have to say this is a beautiful old house with a homely feeling and the staff really make you feel welcome and at home . The location of this lovely old Manor could not be more perfect, close to shopping mall and transportation and jet nestle... More

First off, I arrived at the GuestHouse where I thought I had a reservation. Apparently they have two properties - a guest house which is supposedly very nice and a Backpackers Lodge which isn't. My tour operator called a few days prior and asked them to email me a quote for a private room with an en suite. I am... More

I am sorry that you feel the need to blame us for your agents mess-up. I corresponded only via email with your agent and the Back Packers is what they ordered for you. You were offered an upgrade to the Guest House with private en-suite rooms but you didn't want to pay the balance so I am saddened by your... More
