I found this beautiful guesthouse through TA. From my first email I knew my family and I would be in good hands. Adri & Utah were great with corresponding in a timely manner as I planned my Cape Town stay months before arrival. I cannot say enough good things about our stay. The room was spacious & clean, free wifi,... More

Thank you for your very informed review, we relish the fact that you experienced Cape town so extensively, we hope that you put aside some activities for your future stay with us. The guesthouse certainly does not feel the same without the three "Gals" in it, and the laughs and jokes shared at the breakfast table will not be forgotten... More

Really welcoming atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff who accommodated an early check in. Really nice breakfast, the room was really comfortable. Plenty of secure parking (gated) in a safe area with lots of nice restaurants.

Have identical experiences to Michael, and to think we thought it was all focussed on us alone !! In addition we were too tired to eat out one night; the patio was set up for us to eat our Woolworth supper; and they even insisted on washing up after the meal. Even their preferred taxi driver is imbued with grace... More

Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We prefer to use smaller private taxi services, where the emphases is more on the client and not their fare, the ability to interact with the client is also vital and reassures the client that they are in good hands. The unforeseen power cut we experienced that evening certainly did made your... More

To be honest Tintagel was a place that I stumbled upon by accident, but by the end of my short start stay I believe this was one of the best things that could have happen on this trip. My wife and me stayed at Tintagel for two nights. What's great about this place first and foremost is its service. Ivan... More

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

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.

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!!
