Staff very nice, breakfast too. The room was nice; There is a swimming pool. Location is maybe a bit of a negative point, you need the car for everything. Also parking can be problematic, everybody got a stop, bit you might have to manouver a bit.

Dear Andy, thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit. With regards to needing a vehicle, we get visitors who specifically want to visit Cape Town who use the "My Citi Bus" service which can be caught in the main road just behind our guest house....

I visited here with my boyfriend in 2007 and 2010, granted that now seems like a lifetime ago, however when we stayed it was just perfect. The rooms were great, the staff were great, the food was great, and the area is lovely. You need a car, but I would say you need a car regardless in Cape Town. There... 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

Two of us decided to have a "girl weekend" and made a booking at the Art Gallery Guest House - Thandekayo. We arrived after 18h00 on a Friday and received a warm welcome from Banda. 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
