My family and I stayed at this lovely B&B for 6 nights for a family holiday in Cape Town and were really happy with the entire experience. It is an old family home that's been converted into a B&B and has a really relaxed homely feel. The housekeeping staff were friendly and the hosts, Bruce and Sanette were attentive and... More

As part of the United Kingdom International Search & Rescue Team working with western cape paramedics, valley heights was a perfect base for us.

Fawlty towers in Cape Town. Bruce is obsessed about his eggs in the morning, unnecessary electrical use and security.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad that you agree with my concern re Electricity wastage and security. We HAVE to try and save electricity to avoid blackouts in the area when the system is overloaded. It is also essential that our security is always 100% and that our guests feel safe at Valley Heights Guest House.... More

We stayed one night and enjoyed it. The setting is in a quite suburban street but with lovely views especially from the Green Room upstairs where we stayed.
