The beds are very comfortable with clean linen and fresh towels and ample amenities in both the bedroom and bathroom (hairdryer, soaps, adapters, etc). The owner Burt goes out of his way to make everybody comfortable. The room is spacious enough (cupboards for clothing for long stays) and the en-suite bathroom is relatively large (in "butterfly room"). There is also... More

We stayed in the room with private balcony for two nights and had an excellent experience at the Anchor Bay Guesthouse. The room is finished to a very high standard and the balcony is a wonderful place to sit with a glass of wine of coffee in the evening (the room comes with a nespresso machine and delicious rusks, biscuits...

This turned out to be an excellent choice of lodging while staying in Cape Town. It is centrally located, in a very nice area of town. You can walk easily to nearly all of the attractions downtown. The location is on a hillside overlooking the bay. And just down the easily walked hill there are all kinds of restaurants and... More

This is a place with very neat and clean rooms, perfect location (you can walk around the neighborhood after dark) with a very kind and helpful host, Burt. No breakfast but complimentary biscuits and wine, in summary a totally awesome place to stay while visiting Cape Town.

My husband and I stayed at Anchor Bay guest house for a long weekend and it was really perfect. The location is safe and central, great spot to explore from. The owner, Burt, was extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was spotless and had everything we needed, including biscuits for our morning coffee. I would recommend it any time! Will... More

I can only second the things Obrienunited said as the four of us stayed there at the same time. Burt is an easygoing nice guy who goes the extra mile to accomodate his visitors, to make them feel welcome and enjoy their time. The room was nice, big enough and impeccably clean. The view of the ocean and Robben Island... More

This impeccably maintained guest house is conveniently located to Seapoint, Greenpoint, beachfront and the Common. It is a fairly easy walk to De Waterkant, Waterfront and the city center. The rooms are beautifully appointed with attractive bathrooms, ceiling fans and a/c. A common lounge has coffee and tea service (also in each room), wine and beer. There is a shaded... More

The guest house had everything, superbly equipped with the best view from your private balcony we needed and was serviced daily. It looks that Burt has taken care of each and everything a guest may require during stay. Frankly, Burt is the most friendly host one can expect during the stay. However this guest house is not having any private... More
