The Dreamhouse was fantastic. While the room itself was not spectacular (a little pokey, we were in the green room), it was well decorated and functional. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, with "good night drinks" served to our room, chocolates on our pillows, and other small things to make our stay as positive... More

Dreamhouse B&B was a fabulous guesthouse with stunning views overlooking Cape Town. The staff were all friendly, and they gave excellent advice when asked. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Best of all, however, were the wonderful breakfasts, which our family voted best in Africa, as we didn't have nay quite as good at any of the other hotels we... More

We had a delightful two day stay at the Dreamhouse. A warm welcome from our hosts and a good explanation of the facilities provided. Breakfast is a highlight with the best bread basket I have ever come across. Cold platter very nice presented. We did not even bother to take the offer of a cooked breakfast as the bread and... More

We had a warm welcome and a lovely (but short) 2 night stay at Dreamhouse Guest House. The setting was quiet and tranquil with lovely gardens and surrounds and views of the sea. We particularly enjoyed the breakfasts, crisp white table linen and glorious fruit salads and yoghurt and juices as well as meat and cheese platters and plentiful bread... More

First timers to South Africa and the standard of accommodation always amazed us once we got used to seeing Armed response Security, electric fences and infra red beams! The Dreamhouse was above what we had been expecting having come from the Waterfront in Cape Town which we also enjoyed.. We were upgraded on arrival to a room with a view... More

I have got to give them praise for their amazing spread they provided at breakfast - was that much and more! Loved it. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. The pool area was lovely to relax around. BUT We had a room sort of at the back of the house (not sure of the name of the room) but... More

The first days we stayed in the serenityroom, and at our arrival it was a bit disappointing: not comform the foto on the website: smaller by placing a sofa instead of the chairs, a strange smell from the bathroom and...

First class greeting, arranged airport transfers, called taxis when we needed, printed off our robben island tickets, excellent breakfast with views. We had 3 nights here in December 2013. No shops within walking distance so had one day exploring cape town/hout bay & one day at the guesthouse as a relaxing break before Xmas. Would pay to bring some snacks/pre... More
