We stayed here knowing the area, but not knowing the guest house - and what a great choice it turned out to be. Joe and all his staff were really friendly and helpful. When I mentioned we were going up the garden route out came Joe's lap top to help me find a suitable B&B (see my review of the... More

Wonderful reception and intro to Cape Town and surrounds from Joe, friendly staff. Good quality facilities and rooms, aircon are a bargain.Great affordable restaurants down the road. Seapoint is very central to everything, walk down to beaches, cab ride to city and V&A, away from the hussle and buzz but close enough to enjoy it. Do confirm your arrival time... More

This was the perfect place to stay for my first visit to Cape Town. Being on my own, I appreciated the security and Joe went out of his way to help me plan the perfect few days. I appreciated the hot tub after climbing Table Mountain! The location is ideal for the best restaurants, at all price points, and access... More

Visited South-Africa for the first time last month, and really loved it. The country, the people, the food, price-quality ratio, actually the total experience. All these things apply to the Mountview Spa as well. Joe and his staff made us feel comfortable and welcome. The accomodation was clean and modern, with the jacuzzi as a big plus! And then there...

This is my third stay at Mountview. As before it was super! Joe goes out of his way to help you out when you get there with where to eat and where to go in Cape Town. He sent us to a couple of really fab restaurants which had opened since our last trip to the city and helps you... More

Very small garden and pool, inadequate parking and OK but limited breakfast choice i.e. an omelette was not possible. The most disturbing element was however the extremely noisy pluming that woke me up on numerous occasions when an early shower was taken somewhere in the house. Admittedly, the price was not high.

Dear Guest We are sorry to hear you were disappointed. We would like to add that for the size of the guest house the pool and garden is more than adequate compared to other guest houses in the area. Looking at previous reviews our breakfasts have been listed as more than adequate. There are hotels that offer a bigger choice... More

We stayed in the hotel for 6 nights. The owner (Joe) was really nice, helpful, always willing to give advice. The breakfast was really good, fresh stuff and strong coffee. The hot tub came in handy after a cold dive with the sharks. The bathrooms looked like they were recently updated and were beautiful. The bedrooms could use some sprucing.... More

I was in Cape Town for a short business trip and decided to stay at Mountview based on previous reviews. It was not their busy season as the guest house was not full. Joe and Lebo were very friendly and took great care of me. Location was great as I could walk to my conference venue in Sea Point. Breakfasts... More
