We stayed at Andrea's and Ute's Guesthouse already two times within the last 3 months and enjoyed our stays to the fullest. It's perfectly located on Mount Rhodes with a stunning view over the Hout Bay Valley and its nearness to downtown Cape Town and Chapman's Peak Drive make it a perfect starting point to explore the Cape. This, and... More

Throughout our stay Andreas was helpful with everything. He recommended us restaurants, booked us paragliding flights etc. As we had the pool suite Mike and Patricia served us... More

The owners are so friendly. We received good restaurant recommendations in Hout Bay from them and we loved the fresh and healthy breakfast at Platinum Guesthouse. A perfect and... More

We stayed in the loft and petit studio which worked really well for a family. My husband and I had the enormous and very well appointed loft. It had a large bedroom area, a large sitting room area,... More

The owners of this stunning place are super-friendly and helpful and gave us very useful tips for the area, where to go in the evening etc. The breakfast is one... More

We stayed here for a wonderful week. The staff were charming and waking up the first morning, after a great night's sleep in a king size bed with memory foam mattress, it was a delight to see a breakfast table all laid out on our patio. Definitely the best orange juice and breakfast we had throughout our trip. The location... More

First mistake: Thinking a Guesthouse was a boutique hotel. Lesson learned!! :D That said, the service level was excellent! The staff were wonderful, and always ready to help with anything. The location is perfect for all sorts of day trips from Downtown Cape Town (30 minutes away) to Cape Point (45 minutes away) and all points in between. Rooms are... More
