“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

My stay end of May 2012 was awesome. The service of staff was excellent and they made my stay special. It was quite chilly during the afternoon, but the room was well equipped to get rid of the cold from outside. The room's layout make it easy to sit in the lounge area and chill-out for a while.

Everytime we think of Cape Town, we think of Kolping. Service, hospitality, rooms are all excellent and beyond expectations. We would not consider looking anywhere else. Thank you for turning our experiences into cherished memories.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, well maintained and spacious.

Room Tip: No can do - they are all of a very high standard.

I recently visited Kolping guest house in Durbanville in WC last week for a conference. I was disgusted in the manner in which I was handled because I queried my halaal food. I was treated as if I was being ridiculous and could hear the conversation in the kitchen insinuating this. The kitchen had put the halaal and un halaal snacks on the same plate. I was merely trying to explain the concept if halaal to the lady. She was very rude and eventually came to literary slam down a plate of sandwiches and told me this is all they can offer me and again un halaal. The manager came to apologise afterward but I cannot believe that a place that doesn’t understand halaal is rated a 5 star.

Room Tip: I don

Through a series of problems at another guesthouse in June 2007, I ended up being booked into Kolping Guesthouse in Durbanville. Best thing to have happened to my regular travels to Cape Town!
The guesthouse is situated in Durbanville very close to restaurants and the Tygervalley Shopping Center. It is well appointed and the staff are extremely friendly and polite without being intrusive. You have a choice of breakfasts which are all freshly prepared and gets your day off to a good start.
The rooms themselves are a real joy especially in the cold winters of Cape Town. They have underfloor heating which works very well in keeping you warm. The beds are covered with down duvets. All the furniture is made by the owner. The rooms have an African theme which is succesfully done without being kitsch. I have stayed in their honeymoon suite which is simpy stunning and wished that my wife was with!
Finally the best thing of Kolping Guesthouse is that donate their profits to the Kolping Society. This is a non-profit organization that amongst other things assists the local community. So you know that your money is going to a good cause.

  • Liked — Friendly staff and clean
  • Disliked — Nothing really
