This is a real jewel. I loved the decor, breakfast was made to order, everyone was very helpful and friendly. It is up on the hill a little ways, but is easy to get to and has great access to Table Mountain. I hope I can return to Cape Town some day and I will stay here if I do.... More

I feel it would be beneficial if the guests had Wi-Fi access. Other wise the hotel was awesome. The staff were very helpful and always went above and beyond to keep us happy. Thank you for everything!

Our stay at Trevoyan was a lovely experience. The BnB is extremely cosy, warm and welcoming with a lovely view of table mountain. The owners and everyone else on the property were all very kind and thoughtful and made our stay here very comfortable.

Eddie and Dominique were very friendly and welcoming. It's was a really lovely guest house, but it was windy when we were there and there was a lot of banging and creaking in the night.

Trevoyan is indeed, as many have said, a comfortable place, in a very good location in Cape Town. Despite of a mistake from booking.com, they were able to accommodate us in the bedroom type we chose and we had a pleasant and relaxing time.
