We already stayed 2 times in this guesthouse which means it was great. Very friendly hosts and staff, magnificent breakfast. Nearby Cape Town but also very quiet. Many things to visit in the neighbourhood.
We had a fabulous room (Rhodes) with stunning views, from the bath you can overlook the valley.

What a wonderful place to spend a holiday!
Patrice, Catherine and the staff made us feel very welcome, We stayed there last November for 10 days in the most fantastic Rhodes suite, a very spacious room with a spectacular view and very comfortable.
Every morning we had a very cozy and lovely breakfast,
It was just perfect, couldn't ask for more..
Fantastic people, thank you Patrice and Catherine, see you again!

We spent five nights in this delightful B & B and it would be difficult to find any faults. Patrice and Catherine are perfect hosts,nothing is too much trouble for them. The setting of the house is superb, within reasonable distance from Cape Town and its attractions, but set above Hour Bay with excellent views. There are restaurants and shops just minutes drive away.
The breakfasts are delicious and beautifully presented, and the accommodation caters for every need. We would love to return

We spent just two nights at the Villa Montebello, which was the only negative thing about our stay. Wonderful room (Mountain View), delicious breakfasts, a beautiful view over Hout Bay, all hosted by the very lovely Patrice and Catherine. We really regret not spending longer there, as the service was fantastic and the setting was perfect. Not to mention that we could have chatted to Patrice and Catherine all day if we hadn't had important tourist attractions to visit! Did I mention Patrice's beautiful cat?! We would love to go back one day, it's certainly high on our list of places to return to.

visited again in February 2012, Patrice and Catherine have made many improvements in the last year and everything was perfect as usual, can thoroughly recommend this guest house, first class breakfasts with beautifully prepared and displayed fruit. We stayed in the Rhodes suite which has incredible views and is very very spacious wiith large bath/shower room, separate loo and dressing area with no end of wardrobe space. A large Bed/sitting room.

We recently completed a trip around the world which was highlighted by our 4 night stay at Villa Montebello. Our room was very luxurious, clean, spacious, good closet space with a big bathroom. We had great views out our large windows of the mountains and Hout Bay below. The breakfasts were to die for (especially the freshly baked croissants) and enjoyed in a gorgious setting by the pool and gardens which are surrounded by more beautiful mountains. A great location for daily sightseeing trips in all directions and then a respite coming back for a quiet and relaxing time in the privacy and security of the Villa. All of this was only exceeded by our gracious hosts, Catherine and Patrice, who made our stay both enjoyable and fun. Patrice was especially helpful as we planned our daily excursions to see the best and most in the time we had. We hope to return for another visit in the near future.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but we loved the mountain view room

We stayed at Villa Montebello last year, just after Patrice and Catherine took over, and broke our own rules of never staying anywhere twice when we visited this February. Last year the villa was perfect, but rather than be complacent, Patrice and Catherine continue with their wonderful attention to detail and are continually seeing slight improvements they can make. I agree with all the other positive comments listed so won't bother to repeat them. Hope fully we will return again soon.

Room Tip: We have had the Mountain room twice now - it is huge with views of the Bay from one window and Table...
