I felt completely at home from the moment I arrived. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the people are warm and accommodating. They have various accommodation types to choose from. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lots of good restaurants around the guest house and all in walking distance. The owner however kindly gave us a lift to the restaurant, thank you so much.

We have stayed here a number of times and opt to stay nowhere else when we visit Cape Town every few years.

In summer I recommend the swimming pool too. The location... More
