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.

This is an excellent small hotel / guest house in Green Point, Cape Town. With all that travellers hear of personal safety in Cape Town this hotel's location is very good. 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!!

On our first trip to Cape Town (in April), we couldn't have been luckier. Here's what we loved about 4 on Varneys: the hosts, Thierry and Philip, were amazing, giving us great tips for dining (everywhere we went that was recommended by them was indeed outstanding!), places to see, wineries to stop at when we went to the wine country......
