The location of the guest house is perfect as from there we could travel in any direction. Hosts are amazing people who certainly deserve an applause for their kind hospitality. This is certainly a place we would save on our list of places to stay over at!

A great spot - quiet, comfortable and peaceful. The bathrooms are being renovated so will be even better. We love the fact that it is very homely and the owner treats visitors as true guests.

Always a perfect stay: excellent breakfirsts, marvellous manager, interesting activities in Cape Town (jazz, meetings, appointments, surprises...). The room and my laundry was perfectly made by two skilled ladies. There's no surprise: I used to go in this guesthouse when I come to Cape Town. If I would not be satisfied, I would change: you have a large display of... More

Converted mansion in a convenient part of town. Close to everything but just enough removed in a quiet suburban street. The French owner was very helpful and the breakfasts a bit better than the usual. Not all the rooms have air conditioning and our bathroom could have benefited from some repairs.
