From the greeting at the door to the goodbyes this was a wonderful, if short, visit.The guest house has been faithfully restored to its former glory whilst having all the modern day comforts. Situated a short walk from the more bohemian part of Cape Town. Utah was the perfect host!

The location was excellent being close enough to walk to the V&A Waterfront, close to Company Gardens, close to vibrant Long Street with all the restaurants and bars, and of course in the shadow of Table Mountain. Utah and Adri were professional, knowledgeable and available with help and advice at all times. A great find in Cape Town and the... More

We were absolutely surprised. Tintagel Guesthouse is probably one of the nicest places we stayed. Very friendly and helpful staff, thanks to Utah and Adri. Nice and clean rooms and a very nice furniture. The breakfast was also very good and manifold. We highly recommend Tintagel guesthouse for a Cape Town visit.

It's hard to explain how welcome we felt upon arrival. Utah is the man. So humble, organised and promptly educated us on all the basics of the city, in terms of navigation and things to do. It's very rare that you see a host go to the extent of putting up your country's flag for your welcome. It was our... More

The house itself is a very grand building, beautifully maintained and decorated. Our room, number 6, was separated from the other rooms, up a narrow staircase past the courtyard. As a result, it's probably the most private of all the rooms (plus the bathroom has views of the mountains!). The staff were very attentive and accommodating, and happy to provide... More

The Tintagel Guesthouse is a real gem in Cape Town. The house is beautiful with period details, great food and very welcoming staff (Thank you Utah!) Perfectly situated as a base to explore the city, there are fantastic restaurants within walking distance (ask for recommendations we went to them all and they were fab!) and it's a good spot for...

We had a wonderful stay with the folks at Tintagel. The home is a rare gem and the hosts and staff are very engaging and helpful. The location is ideal for access to restaurants and a walk through the Company Garden. It's also not far from the central downtown core. The view of Table Mountain was an added pleasure as... More

Tintagel is a great B&B to stay in central Cape Town. Reasonably priced, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, and extremely helpful owners who went out of their way to recommend and help us find places to see. Very good restaurants are in the immediate area, and the Company Gardens and Long Street are within walking distance.

I spent a long weekend at TIntagel guesthouse. While searching for accommodation I thought the reviews and photos of Tintagel online looked most inviting and I booked for three nights while I visited friends in Cape Town. I had a good experience from the seamless booking to the checkout. The accommodation was clean and included some interesting items of furniture... More
