We really enjoyed our 3 nights at Tintagel Guesthouse. The guesthouse is in a great central location in Cape Town. It's right in the middle of all the places you'll want to visit while in Cape Town. There are tons of good restaurants in walking distance to the guesthouse. Ask the hosts for recommendations. The breakfasts are lovely. You can... More

A wonderful experience in Cape Town. Staff and owner making sure you feel confortable. Being treated almost like friends visiting, but never intrusive. lots of insightful advices. Best place we had during our stay in SA.

Wonderful stay! Lovely place, hotspots within walking distance. Very friendly service and a very thoughtful and high end breakfast. Just one wish left: Maybe an available local newspaper around? Would come again any time!

Book this in advance because it will sell out! My sister and I stayed here and loved it! Wonderful breakfast, comfortable and clean and beautiful accommodations, great customer service (very helpful and fun and kind), and in the BEST neighborhood in Cape Town, the Gardens. Perfect location, hands down one of the best places to stay and very affordable.

I stayed at Tintagel for three nights when I went to Cape Town on business. The welcome was warm, guest house was pristine and, being a restored Victoria cottage, had a lovely atmosphere. It was ideally situated for me on the edge of the city on the Gardens/Tamboerskloof border as it was just 5 minutes from the Waterfront office I... More

The rooms here are tastefully decorated and the location is good - you can walk to a lot of the sights and restaurant areas and easily drive to Table Mountain. Excellent breakfast. The road is quite busy but did not disturb us in the room. I have to thank Ivan, the owner, who took us to the local hospital and... More

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
