We enjoyed a three day stay here after a safari and visit to Victoria Falls. What a beautiful place. The décor is meticulous, the colors soothing, the rooms luxurious. Our room was large with a walk-in closet containing a bench, lots of shelving, safe and hanger rod. Two towels were provided. The bathroom was small but had good space to... More

We stayed at the Welgelegen at the beginning and end of our 10 day stay in South Africa. We stayed in two different rooms and even the smallest one in the hotel was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfast was very good, the staff great and Fiona has nurtured a real gem in her guest house. There... More

We had a wonderful four night stay with at Welgelegen with our 3 year old son. Fiona, Colleen and the team are brilliant; the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, and absolutely doted on our little boy. Welgelegen is in a very safe and quiet area - a short walk from Kloof Street. It was brilliant to be able to... More

We started our month long trip here, made to feel really welcome right from the start, even though it was in the early hours of the morning. The décor is relaxed and comfortable and the staff are fantastic. Our room was spacious and overlooked the courtyard. The fruit and port just a lovely addition to all the other personal touches...

We came back here after visiting last year because we were so well looked after. It is in a quiet area but very close to all the places we wanted to visit or with good access to transport. Many good restaurants are within walking distance in the evening. We were enthusiastically welcomed back and Fiona and her staff appeared pleased... More

I stayed here 4 nights while visiting Cape Town. The room was spacious with a huge bath and shower. The rooms had complementary port & fruit and the bath rooms had bath salts, which I thought was a nice touch. Just outside the room we had a private terrace overlooking the pool and courtyard. The first night we were there... More

This was our first visit to South Africa, so we were not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The guest house is located in a quiet road close to one of the trendy parts of town (Kloof street), with good restaurants that are almost certainly better than those in the real tourist areas around the VA waterfront in...

WE LOVED our stay at Welgelegen. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood which seemed very safe as well. We arrived after a long journey from Canada at 8am. Although our room was not ready at that early hour they provided a room so we could freshen up plus breakfast with a relaxing sit in the shade in the courtyard.... More

This was our first experience of SA guest houses and it was lovely. The rooms were clean and spacious the staff all delightful and the breakfasts great. Nothing was too much trouble and we had meals and taxis booked for us as part of the service. Thank you for such a great start to our holidays.

An excellent place to begin our three week tour in South Africa, The Welgelegen is within easy walking distance of Kloof Street and several restaurants. I recommend both Café Paradiso and The Saigon as ones that we ate at, but there are several others that looked equally as good. Both Fiona and Colleen and all of the staff are both... More
