We were shown to room 10 on arrival despite booking a different room. This room was in the basement, dark, dank and smelling strongly of air freshener. No mention of the room change was made two hours prior to our arrival and no explanation subsequently. This room was not fit to sleep in and we chose to leave and stay... More

We stayed for two sets of three night at the start and end of our trip to CapeTown. Stefan was extremely obliging and prepared the most amazing breakfast with the freshest of ingredients. The house is an Aladdin's cave of beautiful furniture with subtle decoration and a super garden for taking breakfast in the sun. Our second three nights was... More

Stephen is a great host and was very helpful with making suggestions on some of our day trips while staying in Cape Town. The B&B is just a few blocks from Main Street and stop 11 of the Hop On & Hop Off bus, which was very convenient.

This hotel deserves triple AAAs for customer care. We felt like we were at our own home with the personal attention and service that was offered consistently. The rooms were clean, tidy and "roomy" with first class bedding and breakfast was very good and served with a typical African hospitality...plenty of smiles

have stayed at Huijs Haerlem many times over the past years and stayed in various rooms. easy to reach in avery nice area with stunning view over the Atlantic ocean. Morning breakfasts are a feast, especially when sitting outside. Always a pleasure to stay, friendly, pleasant, quiet and comfortable. 'home away from home' feeling very recommendable indeed

This is now the third time I have stayed at Huijs Haerlem and each time I have had no complaints. Besides being in Sea Point my favorite suburb of Cape Town it has secure parking facilities. The position of the B&B is just away from the hustle of the beach and main road but close enough to all the attractions.... More
