We stayed here for 3 nights in January and were so impressed at the lovely rooms and the welcoming atmosphere. Utah looked after every detail and was able to recommend places to eat and easy ways to see the sights. Tintagel has trustworthy drivers to take guests to the airport; this was much appreciated. We slept well in the comfortable... More

There was a very nice and welcoming atmosphere, spotless rooms, breakfast was included. I showed up just for one night but was impressed with the service and friendly staff. Unfortunately I found this gem at the end of my stay in Cape Town so I only had one night there. Would've stayed for a full week had I known about... More

Your one night stay review is as valuable as guests who have stayed over a few nights. We just love our Scandinavian guests - We have had people visit us from Finland, Sweden and Norway More

Stayed here for 6 nights recently and were made most welcome by the owner ( Ivan ) and his managers Utah and Adri. Comfortable rooms, great breakfast and nice indoor / outdoor sitting areas. Excellent location - Kloof St was a 2 minute walk away , and a 5 minute stroll to Long Street. Nice touch - Scottish and Welsh... More

I stayed at this place for two nights and found everything absolutely perfect. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, helping me with everything from recommendations about the surroundings to organizing a rental car (from a local company, which was much cheaper than the international car rentals). If I can come back I would like to stay here again.

Thank you for your review. We like to recommend smaller car hire companies - and we have a good relationship with two local companies - they provide a personal service at a more affordable rate More

We loved our stay at Tintagel! The rooms were nice and clean, it had lovely indoor and outdoor sitting areas, delicious breakfast, and was in a great location. Most importantly, the staff was so welcoming, we felt like a part of the family... We would definitely go back again!!

I spent three nights at Tintagle Guesthouse and had a very pleasant stay. As soon as I arrived Adri arranged a private taxi which took me to next day very early in the moring to the cable car station where I started to climb the table mountain.

Just wrapping up a four night stay at the guesthouse. Location is perfect, you can walk almost anywhere and feel totally safe. Great value for money. Sweet, clean rooms. Lovely breakfast area indoors and outdoors which were perfect for getting some work done, overhung with grapevines and filled with sunlight. The owners and staff are accommodating and interesting. Ivan amazingly... More

Truly one of the most welcoming places I've ever stayed. Great room, location, value etc. but the genuine interest in me, what I was doing in CPT, whether I was having a good time etc. was really unique. I was there for a big work presentation and they even put up the Scottish flag on their flag pole that day... More

We are happy that you consider us a notch above your other accommodation experience. No need to be embarrassed about your flag - believe the French would have had a turn. It becomes quite an exercise to have multiple nationalities a "flagpole presence" in peak season! More

The kindness of Adry, Utah and Ivan would be a reason enought to choose Tintagel. The location is also excellent (many good restaurants nearby) and the victorian house is really nice. We had no problem about security at all. The only little problem was the hot water of the shower was not so hot. I hope to come back here... More
