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

I have just returned to Australia after spending 16 nights at 4 on Varneys. I was in the city for work and study purposes, with a bit of sightseeing thrown in. It couldn't have been a better location. My room was simply lovely, I had a desk with good light for work sessions, and the room itself was elegantly decorated... More

I stayed at 4 on Varneys for a week in October/November 2014. The accommodation was very clean and the caretakers were ALWAYS helpful. Within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront (safe walk night and day) and in close proximity to lots of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, pharmacies, etc. The property had good security. The WiFi worked well.

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
