Fantastic central location for exploring wonderful Cape Town ( this was our first visit to South Africa). Our hosts Philip, Thierry and Emlyn (Em) were nothing but fabulous.... More

We found this guesthouse to be very well run, clean, with attention to detail. Loved the breakfast, with croissants to die for. The hosts Thierry and Philip are very informative and made us feel very special. We were very glad we chose 4 on Varneys and we are sure others will too.

My husband has a bad ankle so the ground floor room was perfect. Just around the corner from the guesthouse are bars and restaurants, so convenient. Our room was very clean and spacious. The balcony is the perfect place for a late night drink. Restaurants in Cape Town are very reasonable and a real treat to eat out so well... More

My wife and I felt safe walking to and from the local restaurants which were no more than 5-10 minutes away. It may not be the in the cheaper... More

This is a great guest house with fantastic location. Just 10 mins walk from V&A and easy to drive and see both the east and west coasts of Cape Town. Would definately recommend a stay here. The rooms were large, airy and comfortable too.

Loved staying at 4 on Varneys. Located close to the V&A Waterfront and the room we had was beautiful. The management and staff were super friendly and helpful and gave us great recommendations for places to eat all over Cape Town. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to my family and friends. P.S. The croissants are AMAZING!!
