I stayed at Bontkop guesthouse in May because Beach Villa in Melkbosstrand managed to 'lose' my booking I'd made 3 months earlier and only notified me a day before I was due to arrive. I am glad now that they made the mistake and I ended up staying at Bontkop. The guesthouse is very neat, clean and the staff that... More

My husband and I stayed here with our 6 weak old son for four nights in January. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished and we had a stunning view of Table Mountain. We were spoilt with a delicious breakfast which was different every day. We had such a lovely and relaxing time, I can sincerely recommend this guesthouse.

We enjoyed sunsets on the roof and some amazing wine. The hosts was great, very friendly. We enjoyed it so much that... More

What a stunning place, view and people! It is definitely a must for anyone visiting the west coast. You will also be astonished by both Ronel and Nico's history and travel knowledge. The guesthouse has a rich background with photos and books for you to get yourself totally lost in. And the only negative part is when you have to... More

Our stay at this local B&B could not have been any batter. The owners are amazingly friendly and accommodating. The view of Table Mountain and the beach are fabulous. All of the local restaurants and businesses are within walking distance. I highly recommend staying here every time you are in or near Melkbosstrand. We will be back!

Stayed at Bontkop for 3 nights and loved the view of Table Mountain and the cool ocean breeze. We booked Room 1 which is a lovely sized room with a open plan shower and bath and a separate closed toilet. Towels are small and could do with more of a luxurious feel to compliment the rating. Room has a fan... More

The guest house that we booked was not up to scratch and we drove through Melkbos looking for an alternative - last house in town (back to CT) we found Bontkop. Fortune favoured us - we found the perfect place. Situated next to a nature reserve the setting is beautiful. The service was great and the stay an absolute pleasure.... More

My husband and I spent about two weeks at this lovely B&B between relocating to Melkbos and finding a place to live. We loved the location and the view so much that we found an apartment in the building next door! It is an easy walk to the little town where there are several great restaurants and stores which was... More
