Beautifully situated in the Hout Bay valley my upstairs room with private balcony gave me just what I needed for the nights stay. A warm welcome. a lovely room with inviting linen and a modern spacious bathroom, a view and mood to relax too, great photography to look at and all at a very affordable rate.

Breakfast is excellent with Banda ensuring everything is perfect. The location is only a few minutes from the beach and restaurants in Hout Bay and well positioned for a visit... More

Stayed here in Jan 2012 with a downstairs room. This time (Sept 2014) we had the 'Agapanthus' (upstairs) room with two beds, TV, kettle+tea/coffee makings, opening windows, verandah outside. Separate bathroom had wc, washbasin and shower cubicle with ample toiletries provided and very soft towels. (In fact, the towels were too soft and did not dry very well). Breakfast was... More

He helped us with our luggage and we immediately felt at home. The only room available was the loft - lovely view and we even... More

We made a last minute decision to stop overnight in Hout Bay & found the Art Gallery Guest House on Trip Advisor. What a find! Great views & a gorgeous guest house, not to mention the incredibly helpful & attentive staff & owners. The photography on display in every room was an added bonus.

We spent one night at the Art Gallery Guest House after finding it on Tripadvisor. What a lovely surprise - we were welcomed by Banda who is very funny, friendly and helpful. The decor is very tasteful, I loved the quirky African beadwork animals. The photographic artworks by Martin the owner (who is a photographer) are excellent. Breakfast, although simple,... More

His staff led by Banda were never troubled to always do the most they could to make us comfortable and happy. We were given space... More

We spent our last 5 nights at Thandekayo on our recent trip to S.A. The accommodation, hospitality, and location matched the best we encountered. The relaxed atmosphere combined with the excellent service that we received made for a very comfortable stay. The breakfasts were excellent and the rooms are well serviced and clean. The contemporary style was very attractive and... More
