This guest house provides what is honestly the best service and welcome I have ever experienced in any hotel, B&B or similar establishment. The staff are so friendly and welcoming that we instantly felt at home from the moment we walked through the door and were offered coffee and biscuits before checking in. We stayed Nine Flowers twice, before and... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the Nine Flowers guest house. The room was really comfortable and it was all the little touches that made it great - like the biscuits on the pillows and the personalised toiletries in the bathroom. The host (Mathieu? Apologies if this is incorrect!) went out of his way to be helpful... More

Nine Flowers stands out, above all, because of the service. The owner will be there personally most of the time, never short of a friendly word and a nice chat at any point during the day. The food is excellent, cooked with lots of love (you do actually taste that), and the interior of the guest house is decorated nicely,... More

I traveled to Cape Town for the first time as a single person. I had business in Johannesburg and didn't want to leave South Africa without seeing Cape Town. I booked Nine Flowers online and was very pleased with my visit. I was there four night. The location is close to downtown, walkable to Green Market Square, etc. The staff,... More

Brilliant. Very clean, comfortable, centrally located with staff that couldn't have been more helpful. Restaurants in the area also quaint, with good food at Maria's. Breakfast was especially good and I would definitely stay there again, as a family, but also for future business trips.

We stayed for 2 nights in the Nine Flowers Guest house. The rooms were large and beautiful (recently renewed), but also the other places in the B&B were nice. Very friendly welcome, save parking and fantastic breakfast. Located in a save neighborhood. I can certainly recommend this B&B for your stay in Cape Town.

Last week we were in Capetown for three nights. We booked in 'Nine Flowers' and we were not disappointed!! A beautiful old house, not far from the centre. The house is decorated very tasteful: a mix of design and old elements (like the wooden floors). A lovely breakfast, that we enjoyed every morning. And Matthew, the owner, gave good advice... More

Great location and great price. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Would strongly recommend this for a cheap, friendly option to stay in this fabulous city. Very easy access to everything without needing to stay in the expensive areas.

Thank you Matthew and the staff of the Nine Flowers Guest House, we had a most enjoyable stay and found the rooms to be exceptionally clean, comfortable and very quiet and peaceful. Cherry gave us a friendly welcome and arranged dinner bookings for us and gave us some good ideas for outings. We were pleased to find the area safe... More

Welcoming staff, secure environment, clean, well appointed, comfortable, walking distance to a mall where I purchased a Vodacom SIM card for my iPad. There was a grocery store with South African wine at the mall as well - bonus! Staff at Nine Flowers were flexible with my schedule that was outside the normal breakfast period to ensure I had sustanance... More
