My partner and I had four lovely nights in the Platinum Guesthouse. The proprietor Andreas was friendly, helpful and very knowledgable about the best places to eat/visit in the area. The breakfast was both delicious and plentiful (you won't need lunch)! However what really made the stay was the most comfortable sun beds we have ever experienced which coupled with... More

My wife and I had a truly wonderful weekend early in December, enjoying the hospitality, great location and great advice on restaurants from the Platinum Guesthouse. WIll definitely stay there again when in Cape Town or surrounds.

Nice & modern rooms; excellent & very (very!) friendly service; perfect place nearby Cape Town to relax but also to do sight-seeing. We enjoyed our stay very much & already planning our next trip to South Africa.

We were very disappointed in this accommodation. It is not cheap. And even though it is 4 star rated, the finishes in our rooms were very ordinary. No views from our rooms, There wasn't even coffee in the rooms. Jacob was very friendly.

Coffee & cookies kept everyone happy while the team prepared for the day in a lovely guest room. This is my second visit to this property and these views are just as... More

I chose this hotel on my Cape Town surf trip, due to the minimalistic design. I prefer small design hotels with an individual approach. I was not disappointed. The property is as shown on the pictures of their website. The staff was very helpful with tour recommendations and happy to make dinner reservations. I really enjoyed the modern design amid...
