My wife and I visited Cape Town to celebrate our 10 yrs in marriage. We stayed at The Chocolate House and the Hosts were amazing. They cooked a wonderful Sea Food dinner we will never forget! The breakfasts were awesome! My wife asks, "why would anyone stay anywhere else when in Cape Town?"

I came to Cape Town for a short stay, and to hike the mountain. I stayed at The Chocolate House. Totally awesome. Very good hosts, and very good breakfast. It is situated in a very quiet area, but with good public transport links available.

My high ranking should speak for itself. There is absolutely nothing to complain. A person who wanna book this B & B shouldn´t mind baroque ;-) The two men running the B & B are always very polite and helpful. They even sit with you in the lounge and have a drink with you if you like. They really care... More

Johan and Lee have both chosen the B&B busniess after careers elsewhere. This shows through as a genuine enjoyment in what they do, and in delight in making sure the customer has a great stay. Expect a slightly quirky atmosphere and decor, but all done with passion, attention to detail and a focus on making the visitor feel at home... More

If you are looking for fantastic hospitality, great food and want to be treated like royalty, then look no further! Our family had the pleasure of staying at the Chocolate House for 5 nights in December. Johan & Lee are exceptional hosts and this was by far the best B & B experience we have had anywhere in the world.... More

The first and best place we stayed in all of South Africa. Johan & Lee are exceptional hosts in an amazingly quirky yet homely house. The food was devine and nothing wad ever too much trouble. I would go back to South Africa just to revisit The Chocolate House!

The chocolate house is in fact sweeter than it sounds. When you find people-loving people caring for you, everything will become easy. Nice and safe area, easy parking and public transportation, comfortable and clean rooms, fantastic breakfast, friendly people --- This is the place!
