Super hotel , super staff . We spent three days here and couldn't have been treated any better. Breakfast was great every morning. We had dinner one evening which was very good. The hotel was lovely & clean and staff were so friendly and helpful. It is located in a nice area quiet close to most of Cape Town attractions

I must say I initially had reservations of booking here based on location, but the reviews seemed to tell another story, so I took the plunge and booking and my word was I blown away with the luxurious nature of almost everything this guest house had to offer. The interior finishes oozed in style and class with modern amenities in...

Each room was a unique experience and the historic building was elegant. Decor throughout was wonderful. We came for 4 days stayed 6. This property is owned by a wonderful couple who made us and the other guest during our stay feel at home. Once inside of the grounds, we felt completely relaxed, safe and welcomed. The breakfast was outstanding...

The guesthouse is located in a great, upscale neighborhood - easy walking distance to hip bars, restaurants, shops...and about a 10 minute drive to Table Mountain. The house is very Shabby Chic and very comfortable. We loved our room (comfy...

Stayed 3 nights at the start of our holiday. 51 is located on the main m62 through town but once inside we were hardly concious of the traffic. It is a very good location for the many restaurants two blocks downhill on Kloof street. The house has been very elegantly fitted out and provided all the facilities we required. Breakfast...

Spent a wonderful 10 days at this guest house in December. Sakkie & Ann-Marie - who does a marvellous breakfast - are just lovely and pull out all the stops to make you feel at home. Only one down side - I didn't want to leave!
