Olaf's made us very welcome on our five day stay. Clean and comfortable, lovely friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. Definitely home from home. Good location for local bars and restaurants, the beach, public transport and the city tourist buses. Thoroughly recommend this lovely B & B.

I enjoyed my stay at Olafs. The staff were friendly and accommodating. My room was clean and comfortable with a spacious en-suite bathroom. There was a good choice at breakfast. I appreciated having free wi-fi and a flat screen TV with a good selection of channels. The house is at a good location. The sea-front is only a few minutes... More

Very welcoming and friendly staff and a very comfortable room. The dining area has a lovely African style ambiance. Breakfast was superb. Nice selection for a continental breakfast as well as a choice of cooked breakfasts. We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. When we return to Cape Town we will definitely stay here again.

Olaf's is very conveniently located, good wifi, and quiet for a good night's rest. I did not stay for breakfast, had an early flight. I will definitely use again on future business trips to Cape Town.

We had a very comfortable stay on the last night of our trip. Olaf's is in Seapoint. It is just a throws-away from the Alantic Ocean. Just a beautiful guesthouse. The food was excellent. The bedroom and bath very cozy and clean. The bed very comfortable. The staff being so friendly like Rozy and Fawhendra?, the young lady who went... More

Olaf's was a decent place with an average accommodation. The room was pretty good, but the bathroom was tiny. The woman who checked us in did not seem to be very familiar with the place as she did not even know where the lights were in the room. Unlike many of the other guest houses we stayed in in SA...

A really enjoyable stay in a B&B that was well located and offered excellent value for money. Staff and management ever obliging. Highly recommended. Room was clean and spacious and the bed comfortable.
