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. (Not that the wind could be attributed to the accommodation) Lovely location in Tampoerskloof, but be aware there is no parking except in the surrounding... More

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. The breakfast is really good, the room very cozy and quiet, location good and the common... More

A good located guesthouse with outside parking (street) for discovering cape town. Nice and informative hosts, good breakfast (fruits, fresh baked bread, different kinds of cheese and jam, all kinds of eggs to order), friendly staff. Our rooms (big sleeping room, separated bathroom, seperated toilette) was very clean and not too hot during our stay. We enjoyed the four days... More

We booked this hotel for 3 nights, but ended up staying only 2 as we couldn’t stand another night here. The room was sold to us as a “luxury room”, but it has no a/c, we had to ask for a fan, there is no ventilation in the room without this. We couldn’t open our windows (room and bathroom) as... More

This was our second stay there. We knew things had changed, we knew the previous owners had sold, and in such cases one is always sceptical at first. We needn't be! The new owners have brought Trevoyan to yet another level, with all the rooms completely and tastefully redecorated. It has now this cosiness, this warmth, this "olde worlde" kind... More

Trevoyant Guest House is a nice place to stay in Cape Town: quiet, but only 10 minutes walk from Long Street. It has been recently renovated. The rooms are spacious and well equiped. Garden and pool are well kept and invite to relax.
