My husband and I stayed here because we wanted something that wasn't a hotel and that wasn't a hostel. We checked the reviews on trip advisor and it looked good. It was actually better than good… It was great!!! We have zero complaints. Good things: - Very bright and clean - We had the room with the view to Robben... More

This is a great place. We stayed in the Seahorse room and it was immaculate - and thanks to the very friendly cleaner, remained that way for 5 days. The communal lounge is very friendly and all the little touches like tea, coffee, rusks, wine and beer were perfect. The lounge opens up onto a beautiful deck where you overlook... More

We had the room with a sea view, which comes with a private balcony, comfy bed, great shower and a most accommodating host. Up a hill from Main Road, but not too strenuous, it's worth it for the views from the guest lounge balcony and private balcony. Highly recommended.

Great place, very friendly host/owner, lovely views, comfortable bed, clean. What a lovely place this is. We had the luxury room, which has it's own private balcony. The other two rooms share a balcony and there is a communal lounge. The rooms have no TV, which is great as it keeps things quiet and we had no problems from traffic... More

Our room was what I would consider a 5 star room for a 3 star price. We were quite busy in Cape Town and didn't get to spend as much time on the balcony as we would have liked. It would have been nice to have had the opportunity to enjoy an evening outside w/ a glass or two of... More

We stayed here in November and all we can say is good things about this place. The location is great, just up road from the sea front and a 20 min walk from the V&A. Anyone not keen on walking a taxi is approx £4. The guesthouse is clean with 3 en suite bedrooms which are serviced to a high... More

Burt is a wonderful and kind host. The rooms are beautiful and 5* standard. Great value for money as it is a guesthouse (as opposed to hotel). There is off street parking, conveniently located in down town (we had a car so cannot comment on availability of public transport).

The Anchor Guesthouse is just LOVELY!!!The view, rooms and décor are absolutely lovely. And the host Burt is so accommodating that when we disturbed him at 22h30 in the evening his response was “with pleasure”.
