We stayed at the African Queen for three nights. Fantastic garden area and pool. Lovely breakfast and Marjolijn and Marc, the new owner, did everything they could to help us organise everything we needed. Truly a wonderful place, we would always recommend it to friends!

As hosts, Bram and Margaux, have found the perfect balance. Helpful, welcoming and extremely friendly but still respecting your privacy. African Queen is the perfect home from home, ideally situated for exploring the Cape Peninsular, Cape Town or further afield. The rooms are of a good size and immaculately kept as are the grounds including the poolside area. There is... More
