“A real home from home!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Great trip to Cape Town and beyond and a very happy and pleasant stay at Valley Heights! Very hospitable hosts and the dogs, particularly puppy were an added bonus for at least one of the three of us! We felt very well looked after and we were certainly very well fed! Very comfortable place to stay and a real home from home! We would certainly recommend Valley Heights!

What a wonderful place to stay!! Quiet. Comfortable. Accessible. Bruce and Jeanie are wonderful hosts - they cannot do enough for you to ensure your stay in Cape Town is hassle free. Their staff are warm and friendly - and do a tremendous job. We had a very comfortable stay and recommend this place highly - as long as you don't take our next booking space!!

Our 4th visit to Valley Heights and once again we were not disappointed. Situated in a quiet suburb of Cape Town yet near enough to the city centre. Bruce and Jeannie could not do enough for us as usual. Their warmth and friendliness made our stay such a feed experience. Excellent breakfast, an extremely comfortable bed and of course the pool which we used daily. We would recommend Valley Heights without a doubt and look forward to returning hopefully next year.

Room Tip: All good and comfortable with all mod cons

We enjoyed our stay at Valley Heights and received a warm welcome. The breakfast was excellent. They are nice and centrally situated, but also peaceful and quiet. Beautiful surroundings amongst all the trees. We will definitely book again when we visit Cape Town the next time.

My visit to valleyheight in december 2013 was a memorable one. Bruce and Jeanie were wonderful. They went extra mile to look after me, not even in a five star hotel would I get such a lovely treatment. The guest house was spotless, convenient and well cooked breakfast served. I am proud to recommend it to anyone looking for a good place to stay in cape town. Thank you Bruce and Jeanie for your hospitality. God bless. Elizabeth.T

My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful 5 nights stay at Bruce and Jeannie's well- located B & B. We stayed in the self contained flat which we found to be very comfortable and particularly well-equipped. Bruce and Jeannie's hospitality was wonderful and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The garden was beautiful and the pool was very inviting. Most importantly we felt safe at all times.
We would love to stay there again and would strongly recommend it to any traveller wanting a comfortable, homely place to stay.
