Probably the best ratio price/quality at Cape Town. Personal treatment, superior bed, breakfast & bathroom. You feel like Louis XIV in the breakast room. Have a look at their website and you'll be convinced.

My overall stay @ the chocolate guest house was absolutely fantastic. I enjoyed each moment of it. To cite few examples, the breakfast served was superb and met our expectations. The cleanliness of the rooms and let alone the entire house is absolutely terrific.

I am from Johannesburg and have been running the Two Oceans half marathon for the past four years. This year I had to tackle the adventure on my own, with no fellow travellers accompanying me from Joburg to the beautiful Cape. I therefor just googled 'bed&breakfast guest houses' in the vicinity of the airport and the university so that I... More

I stayed at the Chocolate House for three nights. Johan and Lee were the most wonderful hosts. You can tell that they put a lot of their creativity into the design of the rooms and the house. The only down side is that no restaurants or bars are in walking distance.

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 had to run away after one hour and I booked a different B&B. It is dark inside and there is now view out of any window. Not sure why this place gets any good reviews. Small statues everywhere and you feel overwhelmed from everything Having been on the country side all week and I could not saty ther i... More

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
