Our twin room was very small, and we could hardly move inside. We kept tripping on the old rugs on the floor. As we didn't want to be disturbed, we switched off the dripping fountain outside our room, but then it continued to drip all night! Parking inside is very difficult and cramped. Breakfast was average and unexciting

Good quiet location. With off street parking. Nice garden. Clean room. Good breakfast. Host available. Only complaint was we were in back bedroom and it was very hot so lots of Mosquitos and would have preferred an air conditioner.

We spent three nights at Kidger House earlier this month and found it met most of our expectations. Air conditioning would have been appreciated. The breakfast was excellent. A rail by the swimming pool steps would have enabled easier access for someone with poor balance.

We just spent a week at Kidger guest house and we are pleased to say that we had a great stay. The accommodation was well priced and very comfortable. The house is run with love and care and the place just feels homely. We will definitely be back next time we travel to CPT.

I had the opportunity to stay at Kidger House on a recent business trip and was delighted. The room was excellent, the breakfast in the morning lovely and I was made to feel at home - would recommend this guest house to all and will definitely be staying there in future.

I visited Kidger House once before on a short business trip and I knew then that I would like to stay there again. When I booked my stay in Cape Town this time, I didn't think twice about booking in there. The rooms are really spacious with everything you need and also really comfortable. The location is so beautiful and... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Kidger House. We stayed in Franjipani suite which was light and airy and led out onto a terrace overlooking the spectacular garden. The breakfasts were delicious and stylishly presented. The manager, Delia, was friendly and helpful and really made us feel at home. My husband is a vegan and she went... More

I met a very hostile and rigid old lady managing the place. I wouldn't agree more with the review given by Pamelavail especially on, " Best example: There was a rigidity to breakfast and also obvious unhappiness for special requests.

Dear Munduwanyumba I'm sorry to hear your stay didn't comply with your expectations. But please have in mind we are a small guest house which can't be compared with a hotel. And special in the start of the season with less guests we can't offer a huge buffet every morning. But we are sure our manager Delia will offer everything... More
