Enjoy and relax this wonderful guesthouse in Garden district in Cape Town . The moment I arrived I got the feeling from the Karen Blixen novel and the movie "Out of Africa". The rooms, the furniture, the art, the music. I enjoyed, and so did my family . Very hospitable hosts, the same kindness from the staff. I hope to... More

I stayed at Welgelegen for the second time, and this is still an amazing and beautiful place. The location is perfect - in a quiet residential area with beautiful houses in Gardens, with Kloof street (and plenty of restaurants) in easy and safe walking distance. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the courtyard with the small pool is lovely, the lounge... More

Was at this wonderful boutique hotel March/16 for the 3rd visit. It is run by Fiona, Colleen, and Karen, who are the best hostesses. The location is very private, but near Kloof St. which has a myriad of really good eaterys and it's in walking distance. The gals are willing and eager to help with reservations, local attractions etc. Table... More

I love this place. Straightforward, sensible, very good quality, local and secure lodging with knowledgable and practical hosts. Not for the TV, minibar, standard bedroom guest. Good location away from the waterfront tourist traps.

Perfect base to explore Cape Town from. It is a beautifully restored old house with real character and it is very peaceful, tranquil and quiet. The rooms are spacious and there is a wonderful lounge area to relax in with port served in the evenings. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend.

We had a room with patio just over the outside sitting area and plunge pool. The room was fantastic, the staff was excellent to say the least and the breakfast was hearty and yummy. The location is perfect for a quite evening and quick trip to V/A waterfront. Also some really terrific restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommend a stay... More

We had 4 nights here and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's great! One of the best things is its probably the best location for a stay in Cape Town. Our friends who live in CPT agreed. Easy to get around / and Kloof Street is on the doorstep which has an amazing array of simply outstanding restaurants. The... More

This guest house was our first stop in South Africa arranged by our tour operator Gane & Marshall and it was such a beautiful and calming base after we had travelled down from Safari. With guest houses of this nature it is the small touches which help them stand apart and the welcome received by Simon was charming and helpful... More
