“Our second visit at Valley Heights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This was our second stay at the Valley Heights guest house and we felt really welcome, just like the first time. Their breakfast there is amazing and Bruce and Jeanie will definitely make you feel at home! The room was very comfortable and the cleaning service excellent. If you plan on going to Cape Town, this is the place to stay! We warmly recommend it!

Great trip to Cape Town and beyond and a very happy and pleasant stay at Valley Heights! Very hospitable hosts and the dogs, particularly puppy were an added bonus for at least one of the three of us! We felt very well looked after and we were certainly very well fed! Very comfortable place to stay and a real home from home! We would certainly recommend Valley Heights!

What a wonderful place to stay!! Quiet. Comfortable. Accessible. Bruce and Jeanie are wonderful hosts - they cannot do enough for you to ensure your stay in Cape Town is hassle free. Their staff are warm and friendly - and do a tremendous job. We had a very comfortable stay and recommend this place highly - as long as you don't take our next booking space!!

Our 4th visit to Valley Heights and once again we were not disappointed. Situated in a quiet suburb of Cape Town yet near enough to the city centre. Bruce and Jeannie could not do enough for us as usual. Their warmth and friendliness made our stay such a feed experience. Excellent breakfast, an extremely comfortable bed and of course the pool which we used daily. We would recommend Valley Heights without a doubt and look forward to returning hopefully next year.

Room Tip: All good and comfortable with all mod cons

We enjoyed our stay at Valley Heights and received a warm welcome. The breakfast was excellent. They are nice and centrally situated, but also peaceful and quiet. Beautiful surroundings amongst all the trees. We will definitely book again when we visit Cape Town the next time.

My visit to valleyheight in december 2013 was a memorable one. Bruce and Jeanie were wonderful. They went extra mile to look after me, not even in a five star hotel would I get such a lovely treatment. The guest house was spotless, convenient and well cooked breakfast served. I am proud to recommend it to anyone looking for a good place to stay in cape town. Thank you Bruce and Jeanie for your hospitality. God bless. Elizabeth.T
