We really felt at home at Tom's Guesthouse. Günter und Martin pampered us from the moment we made our booking. They came personally to pick us up from the airport, waited for hours in the middle of the night, as our plane was delayed, helped us organize our tours in the area, booked our rental car and drove us there...

I went to Cape Town as part of a large family and friends group attending the happy occasion of my sister's wedding and stayed at Tom's as it had been highly recommended by friends. When I arrived I found the rooms to be comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, healthy and substantial and the young interns and kitchen staff most polite... More

This three star guesthouse has just been one of the worst experiences I have ever had and truly ruined my holiday. The positive reviews of this guesthouse are somewhat baffling based on the experience we have just had. We stayed here at the recommendation of family and had been really looking forward to it. Firstly, the location is convenient for... More

Breakfast was fantastic...you can decide if eating indoors or outdoors with a view at the pool...my favorites were the pancakes!!! Rooms are clean and decorated with african details.

I can't think of a single thing a traveler could legitimately complain about when it comes to Tom's Guest House. The decor is beautiful, beds comfortable, bathrooms appealing, and staff welcoming. Beyond the big things, innkeepers Gunter and Martin nail all the little details, too. From a welcome drink to an airport ride, they set us up for a happy,... More

We stayed at Tom's twice during two weeks of hiking in the Cape region. Almost on the slopes of Table Mountain, Tom's was an oasis, with friendly staff, comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts and a spacious patio area to relax. They also made dinner reservations for us and were always able to give helpful advice. Thanks Tom's!

Thank you very much,
