Harvey and Tasneem are fabulous hosts. I felt as if I was at home comfortable and safe. My room and bathroom was spacious enough, clean and functional with all the amenities that I required. Ample, spacious parking is readily available which can be a problem in Cape Town. Breakfast was freshly prepared and promptly served - wonderful when one is...

Harvey was waiting at the door to meet me at 9pm with my key. Our stay was ease full and pleasant. The wifi works, the room was clean and well kitted out. Access to UCT was close. This is the perfect spot to stay for visits to UCT. I'll be back. Thanks Harvey

I stayed there on two separate occasions during a recent visit to Cape Town. The rooms were fantastic, Harvey the owner is a real character and looked after us brilliantly. Great breakfast in the morning and superbly located. Could not recommend it more highly. Patrick

1 night stay - Harvey could not do enough for us including a cracking cup of coffee and bacon sandwich! He ordered us a taxi to go to the local, when it never showed he drove us himself. Top rooms, great location, would loved to have stayed for the week.
