Nice breakfast with specialty of the day. Nice rooms, great pool and personal! Near by the beach and Cape Town. Everything you wish for! They will arrange your day trips, if needed. For example to a Township. Nearby a stop for the hop on hop off bus

A beautiful guesthouse, with fabulous decor. Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful in showing me where to go for my three day solo stay. They also allowed me to check out late, looked after my luggage and drove me to another of their guesthouses to use the shower, as I was hiking up Table Mountain on my last day.... More

My partner and I spent only one night at the establishment and what a pleasant experience it was. The entire venue was clean and neat and we particularly loved the decor. We will definitely make use of Sweet Olive Guesthouse in future again and have recommended to friends of ours as well.

For a very low price, I got an amazing room with aircon, queen size bed, private patio, en-suite bathroom with a free bottle of wine. Also, the staff were super friendly and enthusiastic. I was there for less than 24 hours, but my stay was well worth it. Would definitely return!

We stayed 2 nights and we enjoyed it! Nice room an bathroom an a quite good breakfast. Close to the Sea and not that far from City Center (Taxi or app. 40 min.walking). To V.&A. Wharf we had a walk along the sea of app. 25 min. We would stay there again.

During our trip to South Africa this was our only disappointment. The Room and Building are nicely decorated. The room we had was a little cramped but certainly clean and had a nice bathroom. The pool is just as pretty as the pictures show but don't expect to do anything other than cool off. Because of it's size it is... More
