“Another Fantastic stay at Valley Heights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We have just returned from our second stay at Valley Heights in the southern suburbs of Cape Town.
We stayed in the flat which is self contained with its own little patio area to eat breakfast or braaii which gives us so much flexibility, it's great to eat out at the numerous restaurants a short walk away but some nights you just want to start a fire and enjoy a great steak!
The rooms are clean and serviced daily by the excellent staff.
The house has a lovely pool to take a dip in when it gets too warm in the beautifully manicured garden.
We didn't sample the food as we wanted to be self contained in the flat but we could have had breakfast cooked for us too, I'm sure it would have been excellent as everything else about Valley Heights is.
Bruce and Jeanie are great hosts and on hand to offer advice on areas of interest or where to try a bite to eat.
We will be back again in the new year to once again sample the hospitality of Bruce & Jeanie

I stayed here for a few days whilst in Cape Town for a wedding in November. Bruce and Jean went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we had a wonderful stay. The pool and gardens are beautiful, breakfasts delicious and our rooms spotless and comfortable. I was 'upgraded' to a small flat which was lovely and had doors opening onto the garden. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Valley Heights to anyone.

My wife and I have recently stayed at Valley Heights - our 7th stay in 9 years, each time for about a week and the high standards and attention to detail we found in 2004 are still there. The house is very convenient for Cape Town's attractions and there are good restaurants just minutes away. The 3 guard dogs have a totally reliable knack of knowing who should be on the premises and who not. So, with security, service and convenience why look elsewhere for somewhere to stay.

Room Tip: We have had the use of most rooms, they vary in size but all are well arranged and comfortable. We...

We enjoyed the stay at Vally Heights very much, it was a home away from home. The hosts are very helpful and friendly. Situated in a peaceful area and with easy access roads. This guest house self catering unit is definitely recommended.

I really enjoyed my stay at Valley Heights. Very uncomplicated, very helpful staff and hosts. I strongly recommend the self catering flat (but apparently the breakfast is amazing. Also it is situated in the beautiful and calm southern suburb named Kenilworth, quite close to the railway station, from where you can get easily either to town or to the peninsula. Thanks again!

We had an excellent week at Valley heights B&B. Very friendly and welcoming staff, we felt at home. The breakfast was truly amazing and well prepared according to our needs.
Bed was very comfortable, nice kitchenette and bathroom.
We also want to recommend Bruce as a tour guide, we had a very nice trip to Cape point.
Thank you!

Bruce and Jeanie couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during our stay. They even managed to find a baby bath for my nine-month old granddaughter. Breakfast was beautifully presented and prepared and the rooms were very comfortable and had everything you needed. So much nicer than staying in an impersonal hotel.

For anyone worried about safety in South Africa, Kenilworth is a lovely leafy suburb and easily accessible by cab (which are incredibly cheap) to all major attractions and beaches.

Thank you both for a great stay.
