| am sorry to tell all those that Hampshire House, which had many excellent reviews, has now closed as the couple have retired and it is no longer a B & B. Apparently there are 2 very good others in Constantia, Dongola House, and Constantia Stables, both of which I hope to stay in. Would not suggest Le Petit Vignoble,... More

Ricky and Carol were great and made us feel so welcome. Ricky went out of his way to help us get organised for our travel beyond Cape Town. The house was clean, tidy, comfortable in fact a real home from home. There's also a beautiful garden and I used the small pool each morning before breakfast.

Spent 3 nights at this excellent Guest House situated 15 minutes out of downtown Cape Town in leafy Constanta. The place was peaceful, clean and rooms well equipped. Ricky and Carol went above and beyond the call of duty in making sure we had a great time. I would certainly recommend this to others.

We stayed here for a two night stay in mid Feb. Great set of directions from Ricky, and a warm welcome from him and wife Carol on arrival. Ricky has his own quintessential relaxed style of service which some might see as not sufficiently attentive, however, this is not the case, and he serves a great omelette! Secure parking on...

We stayed at Hampshire House for the first week of January 2013. What amazingly friendly hosts, we found that there was nothing to big or small that Ricky and Carole couldn't do to make us feel welcome. The rooms were extreamly clean and comfortable, the premesis very secure and neat. Carole makes The Best Breakfasts in town, with the biggest... More

We travel often to Cape Town and just recently stayed at Hampshire House - absolutely wonderful in every way; from the welcome we received, to the rooms, the facilities, friendliness, the gardens, and the best breakfasts ever! Highly recommend!

Our family had the privilage of staying at Hampshire House during the christmas holidays...and what a terrific time we had. To begin with, the rooms were immaculate, well appointed and very comfortable. Everything one could possibly want or need. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept with a lovely inviting pool area where one could sit and have a glass... More

We honestly wouldn't now want to go anywhere else other than Constantia and Hampshire House, for all its comforts and thee most wonderful breakfasts cooked by Carole, eggs by the dozen and sausages, mushrooms bacon are always available, and sometimes Carole excells by producing a surprise ie the rosti...

"At last". We found a perfect retreat! We stayed a week at Hampshire House and found the owners absolutely perfect. The breakfast was not just about quantity although there was always too much! The quality and choice was amazing, I think you would go a long way to find A more prompt and professional service! Our room was extremely spacious... More

I have stayed at Hampshire House on many occasions over the last 8 years and the welcome back is always amazing. My latest guest book entry probably sums it up - "I love it here so much I am applying for a job as Carole's assistant". Her breakfasts are superb and the choice better than any I have experienced anywhere... More
