We loved our stay at Villa Montebello. Patrice and Catherine went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel at home, including baking a cake for my daughter's 8th birthday the day after we arrived. The room was spacious and spotless. The breakfasts were AMAZING. Simple food but SO FRESH! I have traveled a lot with my... More

We have just returned from a holiday in South Africa the last three days in the Rhodes Suite at Villa Montabello, we both wish it had been longer!! Everything has been well planned and is of a very high standard, including the monogrammed bedding and beautiful towels and table linen. Patrice and Catherine were very welcoming and thoughtful hosts who... More

We arrived at this lovely guest house late at night but found the owner patiently waiting for us. What an amazing place! The room, view, breakfast and the service we received were outstanding. The owners went out of their way to assist us with anything we wanted. If you are going to visit Cape Town, this is the place to... More

The owners are very warm and kind people and fantastic hosts who want you to have the best Cape Town experience you could have. The guesthouse is situated on the upper hillside of Little Lion's Head... More

Villa Montebello is conveniently located in Hout Bay, close to the Cape Town's main attractions. The rooms are spacious, quiet and clean and well equipped. The garden is wonderful to spend a lazy morning or afternoon. Break-fast was excellent, especially the home-made jam. The owners put in every effort to make our stay comfortable and gave us excellent advise for... More

Josephine looked after us beautifully, the breakfasts were varied and delicious! She also had plenty of places to recommend, both restaurants and touristy stuff. Our room was spacious and the grounds and views... More

The views are beautiful and good breakfast but very too expensive. Having gone in 10 other guesthouse including Houtbay, we can compare and price of 150 euros / night for the Standard room is much too high.

MONTEBELLO72, Manager at Villa Montebello, responded to this review

In South Africa we need to have accommodation for the different levels of budget and requirement. At least you have to know that accommodation in Cape Town is more expensive than in any other areas in South Africa.
