My wife and I stayed a couple of nights Feb 2013, prior to departure to home in Ireland. Sad for us after a month,to have only learned of Ivory heights' existence by word of mouth a week or so before departure for home. In the event, we considered ourselves lucky to have been accommodated. Just wonderful in every way, to... More

We had an nice stay! It was a huge pity that mine and my fiances laptops were stolen from our room (which was locked) along with passports, watch, phone etc.... Great view of the ocean otherwise. The proximity of the guest house to Cape Town and Franschoek is very useful and allows for a person to get around without having... More

In 12 years, this is the very first time that any property of a guest was stolen. Sadly the guest is claiming that watches and phones etc. was stolen. The detective confirmed the only items reported missing was 2 laptop bags containing the laptops and 2 passports. Ivory Heights staff was very busy this evening entertaining all 18 in-house guests...

We had a lovely stay where we booked the whole guest house, rooms were amazing, food was good and service even better! Unfortunately 2 rooms had laptops, watches, mobiles and a camera stolen - the theft was reported but we weren't able to tack the items or cause of theft. All and all a great stay tainted by a horrible... More

Presenting a business conference in a guest house just never seems to fulfill expectations. Boy, was I amazed by the unbelievable setting, spectacular views from my room, the professional and friendly service and evrything that worked 100% in the conference room. This is truely a once in a lifetime experience - to be repeated! Next time with my loved ones!
