Looks just like their brochure. Rooms clean and neat. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Close to busroute. Nice walkways for those long strole along the beach days. Lovely home cooked breakfast. What I can suggest is to put adaptor plugfittings in the rooms. Most hotels guest houses have them.

The money was hidden in a pocket within my bag behind a bunch of other stuff and someone clearly went through my luggage to...

The place is ramshackle, nobody at reception for over two hours (we had to wait in the street outside) the rooms, carpets and bedding dirty, the aircon did not work, the balcony was dirty and falling apart with a loose railing, and the pool area looks like a rubbish dump. The Manager was surly and did not listen or talk...

The views were magical, the rooms were really beautiful, clean and luxurious. The service was amazing - we asked for an earlier breakfast and we were accommodated without hesitation. The guesthouse is situated perfectly in a quiet cul-de-sac with a perfect view of the ocean from the room and the balcony, even on a rainy evening it was still visible.

We booked this holiday very last minute (less than 1 week in advance) and so there was not a lot of choice in Cape Town due to Easter Holiday's. The Guest House is ideally located 5 minutes walk from the shops on Main Road at Sea Point and there is an excellent viewpoint to watch the sun set each evening...

It's not often that I am very disappointed and unimpressed with a place. Upon arrival there was no one to welcome me or assist me, it took around 10 minutes for me to gain access.
