My husband and I recently stayed here for four nights and we were really happy with our choice. Initially we'd booked there as we were going to be traveling with a 'nervous' American couple, who in the end didn't come. That was why I'd wanted to be out of town rather than in the city. As it turned out, it... More

We stayed at this nice modern guest house for 5 nights whilst visiting around Cape Town. Our personal guide Julie Clarke from Capesplendour tours was perfect driving us around to see the wonderful sites that was on offer. Many wine tastings. This warm and friendly guest house was perfect in every way . The breakfasts cooked and tasty. Would recommend... More

We, chose the Sir David Boutique as we love the beautiful beaches at Bloubergstrand, and it was located only 2 mins walk away. We stayed for 4 nights during January 15 and used as our base for visiting Cape Town which was just a 20 minute drive away, although I understand the Citybus is also a great service right outside....

This is really an amazing place to stay. We have been back 3 times since I reviewed the establishment in April 2014. Our most recent visit was in January 2015, for 4 days. The high standards that we have come to expect from this establishment are still being maintained. Breakfast continues to be delicious, the entire property well kept and... More

We stayed 5 nights in Sir David and enjoyed this modern and stylish guesthouse. Perfect breakfasts. Great and quiet neighborhood. Perfectly located to visit Cape Town and be able to return to this beautiful beach town in the evening. We loved our stay!

Impersonal & 'not our fault' - we found a lack of personality & in-genuine attitude from staff & owner alike; when our rooms water supply failed - no hot water - Eskom was blamed; really, i hate been taken for an idiot. Will not stay there again, and so thankfully will never be an 'insider' guest.

I've known about this guesthouse since it opened and finally had the opportunity to spend a night there. What a treat. Claire and Roula are lovely hosts and the rest of the staff are pleasant. The rooms are lovely, the bathrooms on the lower level only have showers, not sure about the sea facing rooms. The guesthouse is spotless with... More
