Nice colonial house. We had the room number six on the top of the house and it wasn't the best one (shower with no cold water, I know usually happens the opposite but believe me in summer time you do not want to take a shower with boiling water),we saw the other rooms and they were pretty. Anyway it was... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hillcrest Manor. It is within walking distance of lots of interesting places to see and do, plus plenty of great restaurants. It is very secure, clean, and comfortable, with decent internet and a very good breakfast. The view, as others have commented, is spectacular. The house itself is very nice indeed with some lovely...

Cozy, clean, secure, and conveniently located, whether you’re in town for a weekend or weeks at a time Hillcrest Manor is the ideal home away from home. This simple yet elegant home is located ideally, perched on a quiet street on the slopes of Signal Hill in one of Cape Town’s safest and most charming neighborhoods. With some of the... More

Ourselves and another couple stayed at Hillcrest Manor for three days in January. Very comfortable and really reasonable considering it's location and the generous size of the rooms. Gerda, our hostess, was friendly and helpful. The neighbourhood is pleasant to walk round and there's a very simple but perfectly adequate pizza place/deli literally across the road. There's also a well... More

The Hillcrest Manor has become our favourite accommodation in Cape Town! We spent an entire week there in January. Located in the beautiful neighbourhood of Tamboerskloof near the city centre, it is a charming and well kept victorian house with clean, spacious rooms, a beautiful garden and views from the balcony, the garden terrace and some of the rooms that...

I am the Neighbour of this guesthouse, and the owner of this guest house has to be the most inconsiderate rudest person I've have encountered. On 2 occasions she has given attitude when asked to turn down blaring music, the first at 12 at night, the second today, a public holiday. Music has been blaring for 4 solid hours, to... More

We arrived at the airport with no accommodation booked and were referred to Hillcrest Manor. We could not have been more pleased. Our simply furnished room at the front of the house looked straight towards Table Mountain. The beds were comfy, the bathroom was fine, we had tea and coffee facilities and a carafe we could refill from the cold... More

We've had a wonderful NYE 2013, thanks again for having us. Service and location were perfect. Neighbourhood is really safe, we've parked the rental 4x4 with all the stuff on and in next to the road and found it just the way we've left it the next morning. Rooms have a bathroom en-suite, both nicely decorated. Never forget the view... More
