We've stayed 6 days at the Villa Montebello Guesthouse in Hout Bay and it was our absolutely highlight during our trip to South Africa. 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

We got married in South Africa and also spent our honeymoon touring down the Garden Route and Cape Town. We had a lovely time at Villa Montebello! 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.

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. However, the Villa Montebello, at the top of the Mount Rhodes with an amazing view on our region cannot be compared with... More

Room was very comfortable and clean and the best of all was the soft fluffy linen. Views are awesome and enjoyed relaxing by the pool. Breakfast was a real spoiling and i needed to once again relax by the pool to give ny stomach time to digest the breakfast. Best of all was the warm and friendly hospitality recieved by... More

We spent a weekend at the end of September with Patrice, Catherine and the infamous Lord Tamam (The Cat) and it was really a very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing few days. The villa is against the mountain on the west side of Hout Bay with picturesque views down onto the town and countryside below. With safe parking, and convenient and... More

Stayed here with my husband for a week. From the moment we arrived our hosts Patrice and Catherine went the extra mile to ensure our stay was amazing. The guesthouse is in Hout Bay 10 minutes drive from Cape Town. The position is fabulous being high up overlooking the bay and the mountains. The gardens and pool area are immaculate... More

Very good service and breakfast with an excellent view to the valley and the ocean. Clean and very spacious rooms, we really enjoyed our stay of 6 nights. Nice and safe area and very welcoming hosts. Really a place to return to!
