We chose Cube Guest House for staying a night on our road trip from Cape town to Johannesburg in July 2014. Already upon booking we love the well organized website and the possibility to chose the perfect room thanks to many pictures and descriptions on the website. The communication already before the trip with the hosts was very good (which... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at CUBE for 3 nights from June 19th to 22nd. I had high expectations given all the positive tripadvisor reviews and the service and hospitality provided by Dirk and Patrick exceeded all of them! Even before we arrived at CUBE, they were highly responsive to our questions via email regarding local attractions, recommendations on car... More

Dirk was so friendly and extremely helpful in helping us plan our days, it was fantastic to have his inside knowledge of the area which made our experience absolutely wonderful. We can thoroughly recommend staying at the Cube, the breakfasts... More

Beautiful modern guest house located in Hout Bay, a 15-20 min drive from Cape Town. We really enjoyed our stay! The house is beautifully furnished, clean, comfortable, and affords great views. Dirk and Patrick treated us like friends and were extremely helpful with planning our trip - we couldn't have asked for better hosts! The breakfasts were delicious - eggs... More

I am not a very frequent reviewer, but I certainly read a lot of reviews. After reading all the reviews (they were almost 99% "fantastic"), I decided to review this place. Last year I have spent a few nights in this guesthouse and I was NOT blown away by our room. We did not stay in a suite because these... More

Regarding the review above we would like to state that the reviewer has not been our guest in September 2013. This is the second review of a couple which was our guest in March 2014. The first review has the beautiful titel „No value for money“. But one review was obviously not enough as it is so hard for these... More

Please be kindly advised that it is the first review in my life and I am lazy enough not to give any feedback or comment what I experienced. Then, guess what. I cannot describe how this place was wonderful. Mr. Dirk ,the owner of this guest house, took care of me from the beginning of my trip. I just had... More

Breathtaking views from this stylish guest house, well located for the Cape Peninsula, Kirstenbosch Gardens and about a 25 minute drive from the V and A Waterfront. Dirk and Patrick could not have been more charming hosts, and their homemade jams made the continental breakfasts a real treat. Our hosts directed us to good local eateries; for a taste of... More

It is not easy to choose the place to stay in Cape Town because the list of excellent accommodation in Cape Town is really long based on TripAdvisor and some other travel website. We spent a few weeks to research and we are great we found CUBE Guest House. There are so many things we like about CUBE. From small... More

Spacious rom with a very nice bath and bathtub. Very nice grounds/ garden with swimming pool. Very good breakfast with among else homemade preserves etc. Fantastic hosts, we felt like we were their private visitors. Very helpful in suggesting activities and suggesting and arranging restaurants. Relatvely short distances to different (all) Cape Town activities.

Because of the many rave reviews on TA, we decided to book three nights in the Cube. We have been already many times in South Africa and neighboring countries (15x), so we can judge the price – quality rate of a guesthouse very well. We slept in the room in the annexe (Comb View). We found, given the high price... More
