We stayed at Varneys for a total of thirteen days in September. We were planning to stay at Varneys for five days, go on safari and then had reservations to stay at a different hotel for eight more days when we returned to Capetown. We enjoyed our five day stay at Varneys so much that when returned we cancelled our... More

We really enjoyed our stay, the staff were great there was a homely atmosphere.Nothing was too much trouble for Terry or Philip. The linen was luxurious and the breakfast was to die for. We will be heading back to Cape town just as soon as I can.

We stayed here for a couple of days because we attended a function at Green Point Stadium. We were nicely welcomed and shown around when we arrived. The rooms were comfortable and I was very impressed by the extra effort that goes into making a person feel at home. The area is surprisingly not noisy at all and the guest... More

We stayed at this guest house during a convention we attended at Green Point stadium. I selected it based on the short distance to the stadium and it fitted our price range. There was a guy in charge who were very hospitable, helpful and gave great tips. He had quirky sense of humor and we've come to associate him with... More

My travel buddy and I stayed in Feb 2014 and were most impressed. We booked from the reviews we had seen and tripadvisor and we most definitely agree..A great place to stay. 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

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

4 on Varneys is not the best around but offers good value for money. The rooms are ok and clean but a bit worn down (our bathroom door did not close correctly). Safe parking with gate, well located with access the waterfront and the city, Philip offers good advices, bedding is good. The croissants for breakfast are very good but... 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.
