I was a little put off by the welcome I received but luckily things went uphill from there. I had arranged my booking well in advance and Brenwin even booked the car from the airport (and my flight was a bit late) so I was surprised that my room wasn't ready when I arrived. It was early afternoon and I... More

I've stayed here in the past and once again last week. Just a wonderful small hotel within about a 10 minute walk of the waterfront. Reception and staff are extremely helpful and a great cooked breakfast is included.

This guest house is in a perfect location for walking to the waterfront. It's clean and safe and has great wifi. The owners were incredibly accommodating. Breakfast was plentiful and fantastic. I would absolutely recommend a stay here if you're in Cape Town and near the waterfront. You will not be disappointed.

I think we must have stayed in a different place from the previous reviewer! We had three nights here and enjoyed it very much. Our room was large and comfortable with plenty of big pillows and we actually preferred the fan (which was very quiet) to noisy air conditioning. The Guest house is very well placed to walk to restaurants... More

I stayed several nights at the Brenwin while visiting family in Green Point. The location is excellent, close to restaurants and shops, while still being in a quiet area. The breakfasts are good, with both a menu and buffet with plenty of variety, and the service is friendly. The garden is a lovely spot to sit in, and everything feels... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in Nov 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our room was huge and quite clean. The bathroom was large and there were always clean towels and lots of shampoo, soap etc. Breakfast is really good. There is a good selection cold stuff and then there are three or four hot items made... More

Stayed 5 nights in this well located, comfortable, nicely decorated guest house. Staff was friendly and helpful with Cape Town and wine district advise. Breakfast was either buffet or hot ordered. Very good variety. Located 5 minute walk from nearest restaurants, 10 minute walk from waterfront restaurants, shops and Hop-on hop-off bus tour stop. Downtown Cape Town was an easy... More

I generally stay in guesthouses and B&Bs on my travels, as I prefer the more personalised service and atmosphere that hotels usually can't offer. But rarely have I come across a place where this is more true than at Brenwin. To say that the owners (especially Pam) go out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated would... More

Comparing this three star establishment with the four star one I stayed at last time makes this one look like a superior four star. I was very surprised at this guesthouse. Rooms were big (perhaps there are smaller ones but this is what I had), well equipped and comfortable. This is a great location and its quick to get around.... More
