“Friendly, accommodating and well organised.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2009

We stayed for a couple of days and it was really pleasant. The room was clean and tidy and well prepared with extra towels. Coffee and tea was also supplied in the room. The ensuit although small met all your needs not to mention clean.
We brought our dog along on holiday from Germany and she was very happy with the little garden that was well kept. We had no complaints and for the price it was the best bargain under the African sky. We would definately recommend it to people who are not willing to pay the ridiculous prices in the Cape and who want a clean and friendly environment. And a bonus point that they allow dogs. Great job folks.

My sister and I stayed here for 2 weeks. Terry and Deanna, the owners, made us very welcome, and were really helpful in suggesting places to visit outside of the normal tourist guide books. The room and bathroom were immaculate. Breakfast was varied and plentiful, and we were encouraged to use the swimming pool and outdoor facilities as much as we wanted to. They were very helpful in arranging for a hire car which was there when we arrived and which we left at the airport when we departed. It is a bed and breakfast, and we didn't expect anything more than that, but we were invited to join them for a sun downer drink one evening, which was a lovely surprise. I so enjoyed my time there, that I've encouraged friends to stay on their visits and I will be back to run the 2Oceans marathon in April 2010 and have already booked to stay at Blue Mountain Guest House

After experiencing an excellent stay at the Blue Mountain Gues House myself before relocating to Cape Town, I now live in the area and frequently refer friends and colleages to this B&B. This lovely Guest House offers excellent rates, hospitality, has idyllic location close to the beach, shopping centres, restaurants, direct routes to the city centre and up the West Coast. The owners are very friendly and willing to bend over backwards to assist you if needed and security is very good. I have never had negative feedback from any person I have referred to this home away from home.

We stayed at the Blue Mountain at the end of July/August 2009. The owners are wonderful people going out of their way to accommodate their guests and to make your stay as comfortable as possible - your home away from home! The area is nice and quiet, and although not a beach front guest house, you are not far from the closest beach. Well situated to visit Cape Town and surrounding areas, including the winelands. The rooms are lovely and overlook the garden area. There is also a pool for the hot African days. Good value for money.

if you want a friendly and lovely familiar place to stay, then drop off at Blue Mountain Guest House.
Very quiet and comfortable place, to get away from stress and the city noise.
Shops, restaurants and the amazing west beach, are very near by car.
the traffic around capte town is a little problem, but all the ways to the city or airport take a little longer, this you have in every country if you living outside from the city.
That was no negative point, because if you i holiday you shouldn't take the stress from your home country with. and like i wrote before, you have traffic in every holiday region near a bigger city...
just enjoy this lovley guest house with a family flair and great beach with table mountain view.
greets marcel

This place is pretty average. The rooms were clean, but had not been decorated for a while. The ceiling above our shower was badly flaking for example.

Its also quite a way from Cape Town airport - 25 minutes or so if no traffic. Locals told us the rush hour traffic in that area can be pretty bad, as its developing rapidly.

The hotel owners were friendly, and promptly replied to enquiries. What spoiled it for me however was that they did not seem very keen on actually running a B&B. When we called from the airport to say our flight was delayed so we would be arriving late they were insistent that our friends (arriving earlier) collect keys on our behalf. I could only assume this was because they did not want to wait until 10pm to meet us. So our friends had to :o(

Furthermore, we tried to pay with a credit card the night before we left (as we had to leave at 7am). The owner had gone out and basically told me (via phone) there was no choice but to leave cash - and gave me directions to an ATM. I had not previously agreed how to pay. They also pointed out (as more encouragement?) that the cash rate was much cheaper than the card rate.

To sum up - this place was cheap but there are no doubt equally average places closer in to town. I would not recommend.

  • Liked — Large communal kitchen / dining room.
  • Disliked — Unhelpful owners.
