The Guest House offers a calm, home like environment, to relax in the heart of Cape Town. The staff are most helpful and will go out of their way to assist the guests. I have already booked my next stay. Above all, the rooms are meticulous and the Lounge & Pool area provide a quiet place to dine and unwind....

I arrived shortly after the 1pm Check-in perimeter and was told that my room was not ready at all. I dropped my luggage and went shopping to give them more time. For the entire duration of my stay I never saw a manager. I dealt only with the house keeper who, although capable, was not on the ball. I was...

Warmly welcomed by the new manageress nicole on our arrival. Nicole provided us with kitka bread and candles for Shabbat and even let us use her own beach chair and umbrella for the weekend. The room was large with a fridge and comfy bed. Room opens out to pool with beautiful view. Despite the strong winds that led to cancellation...

I stayed 2 nights. One night in a sea facing room and the other in a non sea facing. Both rooms were clean with comfy beds. Layla who runs the house was lovely. Room 3 was amazing with its private balcony

I happily stayed at Craigrownie Guesthouse for 3 months August to October 2016. This was my second longterm stay in 2 years. I love Craigrownie as it has a beach house feel - it's right by the sea in a secluded location in beautiful Bantry Bay. The staff, who are all are long-term, are reliable, friendly, helpful and professional -...

The place is ideally located on the seaside promenade. Beautiful views from some rooms. It is in need of maintenance and a bit of investment from the owners. The manager and staff are all very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home.

We have been staying at the Craigrownie Guest House for the past 5 years. It needs an upgrade. The wifi did not work and so the TV. We battle to get the doors locked it might be either rusted or get replaced.

Dear Valued guest Thank you for the review, we are trying out best with the connection to wi-fi and tv. The doors are very tight, I agree, we are trying to either have them all changed or have them made easier to open and close. Sorry about your experience, we are working on all it. Kind regards Leyla
