We loved everything about Tintagel guest house. They were so warm and welcoming, room was beautiful, food delicious. Very nice people from the owner to the concierge and waiter. We stayed in several places from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and rented all via Internet. This place was recommended to us and is so charming! Exactly what we were looking... More

A colleague recommended this place. Her recommendation was spot on. This is a beautiful house, and with the rooms close to the central lounge, dining area and courtyard, as well as the tasteful furnishings throughout, this did indeed feel like home. I had 2 days to explore the city and the staff could not have been more helpful in suggesting... More

We had a wonderful stay at this renovated guest house with its old charm. Location was near all the best tourist sightseeing places and walking distance to restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we will for sure stay there again in the future.

Rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Everything was provided from a kettle with coffee and tea to a "sherry" for night caps. The bathroom had cups and a garbage can - the first we had seen on our trip. The breakfast was delicious. Staff and owner were attentive and helpful. Location was wonderful for restaurants and Cape Town tourist things.... More

A stylishly decorated guesthouse with a calm and generous approach to welcoming guests. Bed and breakfast doesn't get much better, and the staff were happy to make my stay as comfortable as possible, offering plenty of unbiased advice about tourist attractions and travel around the city. Great value for money. I can't wait to return one day ...

The location is very good, close to the city centre and Long Street, quite close to the Waterfront and close to the main roads to... More

We stayed at Tintagel Guesthouse for 2 weeks, on our honeymoon in Cape Town. The guesthouse is excellent from all point of view: location, friendly staff, nice athmosphere and very stylish. We were welcomed with the hungarian flag, because every guest who are coming from a different country than SA is welcomed with their country's flag.:) It was sooo nice!... More

We stayed at the Tintagel Guesthouse for four nights and would highly recommend it to others. It is a very relaxing building with little outside courtyards and high ceilings. The staff were very helpful and always pleasant which made our stay in Cape town even more enjoyable. We will return. Mark and Cheryl
