Having stayed at Floreal House some years ago, my wife and I were keen to revisit prior to starting a holiday touring the Western Cape region. Natalie was very helpful during the booking process, helping us to get the room that we had stayed in 4 years ago (but couldn't remember the room number). We arrived early in the morning... More

Stayed here for a week during a business and pleasure trip to South Africa. This is a fantastic hotel/guest house! It is a converted colonial-type house, with high ceilings, wood beams and a general airy feel. The rooms are huge and very luxurious. Some rooms (2 & 3) have amazing views out over Cape Town and Devil's peak. The staff... More

This is the perfect place to start a holiday in Cape Town and the Garden Route, and one could not fault Floreal House in its position at the foot of Table Mountain. The staff are exceptional and the facilities perfect, the breakfast is superb and the daily snack menu very suitable for during the day. Our only criticism is that... More

Truly a home away from home. I have been staying at the Floreal House for the past 7+years during my business trips and every stay is always better than the previous. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious, modern and extremely cosy. Each room is equipped with a fully stocked... More

Floreal House is situated right at the foot of Table Mountain. Actually, you cannot get much closer! Beautiful views of Table Mountain and the harbour right in front of you. The guest house has such a warm and inviting character. Luxurious and very pleasant.

With a fantastic view of Table Mountain from our room we couldn't have asked for a better base for our time in Cape Town. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was the perfect start for a day site seeing. Great little B&B.

Oir initial views were very positive with welcoming staff and the venue is lovely but after a couple of days we were left with the option that it felt like a hotel trying to be a B&B. May be my views were clouded by the excellent Guest Houses we have stayed in for the last 2 weeks. The room we... More

This was my return visit to Cape Town and I decided to go back to Floreal House in the quiet district of Oranjezicht. Natalie and her mindful staff were welcoming and as before went the extra mile to make my stay comfortable. The view of the Table Mountain from Room 1 is simply stunning. Breakfast caters for everybody, health fanatics... More

The accommodation is spacious and well furnished. The staff are extremely friendly and the food was wonderful, (the muffins were to die for). We were even allowed onto their own computer to check our emails. We did find the position of the guest house a little out of the way, as we did not have our own transport, being part... More
