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

We are in the middle of our stay and felt we should post to say just how nice this is. Burt could not have been more welcoming, this is the without doubt the best guest house we have ever stayed in. We are writing this whilst sitting on the terrace having a "sundowner" glass of wine which is on the... More

I had a quick two night stay in Cape Town and could not find anything reasonable to book. I came across Anchor Bay on TA as usual and I was not disappointed at all. Burt was expecting me and he and his wife are extremely pleasant and hospitable. They are not intrusive at all but still always available for any... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed a fantastic stay. Burt the owner was a brilliant host who welcomed us warmly with a glass of wine and took time to give us many tips and useful information about Cape town. The property is very secure, clean and well presented. The property was in an excellent location close to many... More

We arrived after a long flight to a warm welcome and a glass of wine on the deck overlooking the bay. Burt was extremely helpful, full of local knowledge and a pleasure to stay with. The room was comfortable and the location ideal.....walking distance ( or on bus route) from the V&A with lots of restaurants close by. Next time... More
