My friend and I travelled throughout SA for a month in December and Tintagel was undoubtedly the most memorable abode of all. Warm and friendly, Utah was a fantastic host! He gave us great tips and excellent brekkie. Went as far as to get a Sri Lankan flag ( would have been truly difficult to purchase! ) flying high on... More

With very little choice of accomodation in Cape Town on New Year's Eve, we managed to get a booking at Tintagel Guest House without knowing what to expect What a pleasant surprise when arriving to a very sincere welcome from the Manager, who went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and 'at home'. Our room was lovely,... More

We booked here on the recommendation of friends. Everything is excellent, the location is ten mins from everywhere, they have parking, and some nice restaurants within walking distance. The house is a beautifully renovated Victorian villa, with beautiful courtyards for outside space. Stay here, it's lovely

Clean, comfortable bed and good white linen and thick duvets. So many times guesthouses have these paper thin duvets on the bed. Towels could be replaced though. Definitely not grubby and tired looking as so many places are. The rooms are great. Peaceful atmosphere and Adri very friendly and makes you feel so welcome. Very close to kloof street for... More

Location (restaurants, bars, shops, Long Street etc.), decoration (old style, Victorian house: patios, pergolas, fountain, furniture), comfort, breakfast (the English one is perfect) and, of course, staff: a perfect place to stay for a few days in Cape Town!

Superb breakfast, clean and spacious room (except for one small one the owner will warn you about...), extremely friendly and helpful staff, right in the middle of everything. Would go again. This place is just good, there is no need to write much more, just believe me ;)

Thank you for your generous review. You are welcome to return any time! The 'small room which the owner will warn you about...' is in fact a single room (12sq m) in the courtyard. More

Ivan the owner, Utah and Adri the managers, Michelle and the rest of the staff were amazing. They gave me valuable advice on places to visit in Cape Town and South Africa in general, restaurants, car rentals, taxis, just about everything. The location is unbeatable: one-minute walk from Kloof st, where you can find a plethora of restaurants, bar and... More

This place is home away from home. We love staying here and are frequent guests here. location is awesome, accommodation very comfortable and breakfasts and delicious. Service is first class. Only reservation about giving this review is that if they get to popular I might struggle to get a booking there when I need it.

TripAdvisor comments from South Africans are much appreciated, especially frequent guests. Our only reservation about such a glowing review is that we have to maintain the "Tintagel standards" as to not disappoint our regulars! More

A very nice guesthouse with friendly and helpful staff. It felt as being at home. Although at a rather busy street we heard no traffic in our room. Good breakfast, great coffee, comfortable beds, good wifi and safe parking place. It was our best stay in South Africa. Highly recommended!

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
