We didn't want a faceless corporate hotel in the waterfront or city, so chose this as a smaller guesthouse with a hope of a personal touch. We got what we wanted. The two owners visited most mornings, were chatty without being intrusive and were well informed about Cape Town, the waterfront, the city and things for us to do. They... More

We stayed there for 3 nights on the weekend of the Cape Jazz Fest. Very impressive decor, relaxing grounds. I loved the glass door of our bathroom, and the shower. Water peessure was just right.Phillip is an excellent host. He gave great recommendations for restaurants and tour sites. Location is perfect, there's a Spar grocery store within walking distance.

We had an amazing stay at 4 on Varneys! Close to the V & A and even closer to the Stadium if you are thinking of attending a concert! Thierry & Philip are such humorous hosts with a passionate for making their guests feel at home. Comfy beds with soft cotton linen. Thanks for hosting 1 Directions biggest fan!

Have just returned from 3 nights in Cape Town where we stayed at 4 on Varneys. We were there during the Cape Town Cycle Race (Cape Argus), and everything was geared up for bicycles, you are able to leave your bicycle safely in the guesthouse, and they will provide an early breakfast on race day. Our room was a good... More

There is not much to add to the other positive reviews of 4 on Varneys Guest House as they are true. Thierry & Philip are great hosts and run a fine establishment. A group of us stayed there during the recent Cape Town Cycle Race (Cape Argus). It is very close to the start and more importantly the finish. Thierry... More

We stayed for three nights in March 15. The room was spacious, bathroom was good with an excellent shower. The bed was large and comfortable. Breakfast was good, but not exceptional. The cost is very fair considering the great location. Phillip and Thierry are very helpful and exceptional hosts. The location is only about a 15 min safe walk to... More

I stayed at 4 on Varneys with 3 friends for a couple of nights in early Dec following a work conference in Cape Town. We wanted to see another area of the city, feel safe in comfortable surroundings and 4 on Varneys hit the spot. We were given a warm welcome by the owners/managers and our rooms were clean, well-equipped,... More

My Tanzanian friend Joel and I stayed for a week in early December. It was exquisite in every way - a former Edwardian mansion with a high-quality contemporary renovation yet entirely empathetic with the original house. These guys have thought of everything - in the renovation, in the high quality and restrained taste of all the new fittings; the intimate... More
