I find this guest house a true home away from home. The staff are always friendly, great food and excellent mattresses for a good night's rest. Location is very good for the greater Cape Town area, Winelands and Boland.

It was truly a magnificent getaway. The staff were friendly and helpful. The whole experience was really enjoyable. Nothing to complain about. Would recommend it to anyone, from business trip to relaxing getaway.

Cape Pillars was recommend to us by a friend; and a quick check on Trip Adviser confirmed this would be an ideal 'stopover'. A warm welcome. large bedroom and bathroom even a balcony/terrace (the honeymoon suite I think) but worth it for us to have the extra space as we both needed to set up laptops and download email. Wifi was ok too. slightly disappointed with the breakfast - omelette filling was added at last minute so was cold and cheese not given time to melt into it. But maybe that is just a personal thing?

I stayed here while on a business trip, as were all of the other guests I met during my stay. The hotel is located in Durbanville, which is a quiet, safe suburb of Cape Town. The rooms are all different but mine was quite spacious and well appointed. The bed was firmly comfortable and there is a fridge (which also serves as a mini-bar) and microwave if you want to bring your own food.

The guest house provides a breakfast with a continental buffet and eggs cooked to order. There is a fixed-menu evening dinner that is offered on request but was very good on the evenings when I ate there. The Durbanville business district is only a couple of kms. away where there are many restaurant choices if you should want something different. Wireless internet is offered for a fee based on data consumption and I found the speed adequate. There is a small TV that only received about 5 channels. There is a safe provided that is OK for documents but is too small to fit a laptop.

What made this property truly special was Monica and her staff. They were always pleasant and seemed to proactively look after your needs. You certainly can't get this level of service at a large hotel.

Highly recommended.

I always stay there when on business trips. Excellent rooms, food & people that is always helpful. The area is quiet and tranquil and close to all major businesses. Rooms are clean and need.
Accounts are always correct and worth the money spend. I stay there from a couple of days to a couple of weeks and always had a pleasant experience.

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Cape Pillars two weeks last year. Monica and the entire staff were wonderful. We had great breakfasts each day out on the patio, plus we even had a really nice dinner there one evening. The rooms are absolutely wonderful - each of them is unique and quaint and special. I highly recommend you stay at Cape Pillars and enjoy its beauty and tranquility and top notch customer service.
