As our first guest house stay it was excellent & we judged the rest of our holiday by their standards. Excellent breakfast in lovely garden. Very friendly & helpful owners. Lovely room. Need for security an eye-opener but always felt safe. A great base in Cape Town.

Thank you to all at Huijs Haerlem for looking after us so well. My room was very comfortable and had everything that you might need. Ladies, it had a plug socket near a mirror!!!

We have just spent 9 days here and we cannot fault it. It is excellently well placed for getting around town, ( we had our own car) and if you get a taxi it is perfectly placed to visit the town centre and Water Front. Lovely hospitality and the prettiest poached eggs we have ever seen.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this guest house. We had a seaview room in the main part of the villa. The breakfasts were very good and loved the personal touch of Johan's baked goods. The location is very convenient and safe for walking around in the evening with lots of choices of restaurants and bars. The villa is beautifully... More

Nothing beats arriving in Cape Town after a full day's travel to be met with a smile, a cup of tea, and practical arrangements to get you up Table Mountain as quickly as possible while the weather holds good. The whole team here were warm and helpful, the house immaculate, the breakfasts tasty and plentiful, and the views over to... More

My wife and I stayed at this very charming bed and breakfast the night we arrived in Capetown. We arrived late but were delighted to wake up to views of the ocean in the morning. The room was spacious and well appointed with big bay windows looking out over the water. The bathroom was updated with all the essentials. We... More

Great place to stay; centrally located as well. Hosts Johan and Alex were very welcoming and considerate; lots of attention paid to details. Generous breakfast with plenty to choose from. Will definitely stay here again.

Huijs Haerlem has a good location on a hill overlooking the Ocean. It is only a short drive to the Waterfront. Having breakfast served outside beside the pool with the ocean in the background was a highlight. Johann and Alex were excellent hosts. David.
