What a delightful stay we had at this beautiful Guest House. The location on the beach, with stunning views of Table Mountain was just wonderful. Ronel and Nico were charming hosts. Simple, yet very lovely and delicious breakfast was provided each morning. Rooms were very comfortable, extremely clean and listening to the waves while drifting off to sleep was a...

A really inviting place. Lovely hosts take great care of you, without being in your space. Lovely splash pool makes up for the really cold Ocean. View is spectacular from most rooms. Right on the beach, but you feel safe. Honesty bar and food is really good, with prices of wines very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Stay at Bontkop was great, perfect views and whale watching from the bedroom. Neat and tidy with good space for family to tag along. The town itself is lovely and close to cape town and wine farms. Breakfast with the view of table mountain really impressive. Would love to go again!

Even though we only stayed one day, I absolutely loved Bontkop. We couldn't get enough of the stunning ocean view and the fact that the water's edge was mere metres away from our bedroom. The accommodation was superb, the breakfast substantial and nothing was too much trouble for the owners.

On a recent business trip to the Western Cape we stayed at Bontkop Guesthouse - OMG! What a great choice, everything one could ask for and more. Apart from the panoramic views of Table Mountain [that one always sees in the tourist brochures] the rooms offer every creature comfort. We were on the ground floor and our sliding doors opened...

This was my second trip toBontkop. This time I got into room no 1 and was blown away by the feeling of sheer indulgence. The sea view is breathtaking, and the sound of the ocean whilst sleeping is magnificent. A lovely stay with great hospitality. Will definitely love to return sometime.

I stayed at Bontkop guesthouse in May because Beach Villa in Melkbosstrand managed to 'lose' my booking I'd made 3 months earlier and only notified me a day before I was due to arrive. I am glad now that they made the mistake and I ended up staying at Bontkop. The guesthouse is very neat, clean and the staff that...

My husband and I stayed here with our 6 weak old son for four nights in January. Our room was spacious, beautifully furnished and we had a stunning view of Table Mountain. We were spoilt with a delicious breakfast which was different every day. We had such a lovely and relaxing time, I can sincerely recommend this guesthouse.
