“End of an Era!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Another great stay at David's Guest House. Excellent location, staff friendly and efficient, spotlessly clean rooms, and very relaxed atmosphere. Very quiet this time though without David and the late Hannes being there. What a shame it will probably be our last visit! :-(

Maybe it was because we had recently been in Angola but we found David's to be warm, comfortable, and accommodating. The staff was available and ready to offer suggestions when asked or reserve a tour or order a cab. The walk to the Waterfront was a reasonable distance though here as in any other part of Cape Town one relies on a metered cab after dark. This B & B is well appointed, neat and clean. The shower, at least in our room, was wonderful. While the TV had a very limited number of channels, the free WiFi allowed us to check CNN while also checking emails, etc. All this at a reasonable price makes David's our place to stay in Cape Town.

FREE excellent WIFI ...Requested non smoking quiet room and although the room was small was able to provide .Room opened onto a shared balcony first floor with a lockable grid door, so able leave the glass door open of a night for fresh air. Luggage can slide under the bed.
The house is very clean comfortable and friendly, and very tastefully furnished. David always eager to help with any bookings or requests for assistance.
The walk to the Wharf side is about 1700 mtrs each way easy walk. Restaurants along the way.
Breakfast is great, fresh rolls, fresh fruit salad,cereal, cheese, tomato, cold meats, coffee etc. The place mats are made and painted by young Bruce, who helps David. They are available for purchase and make lovely presents whilst helping a young person with their education expenses. Would definitely stay again.

We had a very good stay at Davids. The rooms and the whole accommodation are very neat, Daivd and his staff are very friendly and helpfull, good breakfast and great location. You are very closeby Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Waterfront. You can park your car on the street in front of the guesthouse, we had no problems with that.

David's was comfortable and the staff were friendly, but I found the location rather offputting, though I was only there for two nights at the end of a long stay in a very nice large hotel close to the central city, so the contrast effect was unfavorable. No complaints, but no excitement either.

I´ve stayed at David´s several times on both business and vacation. For the price it must be one of the best options in Cape Town. Good location, friendly owners, nice breakfast, clean rooms. We liked the area so much we rented a house round the corner for 6 months when working in Cape Town!! Looking forward to visiting again next year.
