Large rooms! Very nicely decorated and spaciuos, love that! Very hard to find though... Lovely breakfast. You need to have a car and a god GPS;) The manager was very friendly and helpful, we had booked to stay more nights but left earlier, without any trouble at all, high points for flexability👍🏻

Thoroughly enjoyed my week-long stay over Easter! ☺ Very quiet, peaceful environment and surroundings. Breakfast the best, very fresh and tasteful. Staff very friendly and helpful. Slept like a log! ☺

We had a great stay at 5 options, family of 4. Warm welcome from Kate and Mark. Breakfast is fabulous. Very nice family rooms (two rooms with small kitchenette). Pool is small but nice. Very nice view through big windows in the rooms towards the table mountain. Blauberg is 30min from Waterfront, but waterfront is no place spend most of... More

Stayed in this Guest House for our Anniversary. Yellow Rose Room was lovely and comfortable. We had a very comfortable bed. Karen was very friendly and helpful. No English tea in our room nor at breakfast but not the end of the world.... Little far from the beach, had to use the car to get to everything. Our overall stay... More

No parking for my vehicle. Webpage indicate that all rooms have either a mountain or see view or both, which was not the case with my room and I was very disappointed. Breakfast was good. No mirror near an electric point where I could blow dry my hair.

Of all the places I’ve stayed at, the warmest most pleasant welcome I’ve ever received was at 5 Options Guest House. Both the owner and the manager were super friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, extremely clean and comfortable. I slept so peacefully which is for me noteworthy as I’ve always had difficulty sleeping in strange places. The breakfast... More

We had a warm welcome, lovely view from room, nice swimming pool and secure parking. Room is a bit dated and the furnishings very dark, towels very hard. We were told no cooked breakfast as new year's day on arrival night prior which was fine. When we came down for breakfast only cereals, tea and coffee. Manager did come out... More

Hi Jan and Chris I must apologise for the way things were handled on New Year's Day. Unfotunately I was ill with the bug that has hit Cape Town, but was informed of the problems on New Year's Day with the breakfast. Our Houseman had totally misunderstood the concept of Continental Breakfast and failed to put out the croissants, muffins,... More
