We stayed at the African Queen for a couple of days while touring the Western Cape earlier this year and found Marc and Marjolyn to be most friendly and helpful during our stay, which included recommendations on where to eat and making table reservations for us. Our room was in the older part and rather unusual with steps down to... More

We had a very pleasant stay - hosts were friendly without being in your face. Breakfast was varied and fresh and tasty. Bed was wonderfully comfortable. Although the weather outside was extreme, the lounge was cosy with a fire, but it would be nice to have rugs on the bedroom floors for winter! Would go back any day!

We really loved this guesthouse in so many ways. It was the perfect place for a relaxing stay nearby Cape Town. We loved the setting and design of the guest house very much and had the best breakfast we had during our three-week visit of South Africa! Moreover, the hosts were very helpful in planning our stay and assisted us... More

Neat and well located guest house owned by a very friendly Dutch couple who really enjoy what they do and so are very hospitable along with paying attention to detail. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the European style breakfast is top drawer.

We spent a few days in African Queen while visiting Cape Town. It is so much better compared to an hotel in town: it's close to the beach, very nice local restaurants, great for hiking. And still close to town. Marjolein and Mark are very nice hosts, efficient and calm. We very much enjoyed a guided tour in a township,... More

Marjolein & Mark are more then hospitable. They have really made us feel at ease after a long flight with three little kids. Rooms are specious and very clean. They prepare a nice breakfast for you every morning. Fresh eggs from the chickens in the garden. Location-wise a top spot to discover the cape area and also Capetown itself. Thank... More

Stayed at here in Feb'14. Absolutely loved it! The couple who runs it are extremely polite and service minded-they even drove us to one of the cocktail parties we were going to. Will return! No doubt!

We spent 4 nights here and found it an extremely comfortable place to stay. The garden area is delightful as is the breakfast area and interior of the house. The new owners Marc and Marjolijn are absolutely charming and helpful and make you feel completely comfortable. They booked restaurants for us, recommended places and even made a doctors appointment for... More
