Cheviot Place Guest House
Ranked #31 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Cheviot a few months ago and are headed there for our second stay after having such a positive experience the first time. We like to stay in guesthouses rather than large corporate chains, and this one was particularly memorable. James the owner is extremely hospitable and will go out of his way to show you around town, make dinner reservations, and overall serve as an excellent host. You also get the sense the service is very personalized and that you are experiencing genuine hospitality, rather than what you would find at a large hotel chain. Breakfast is very good and consistent. The view is great, as is the quality of the inn and meticulous attention paid to the rooms. It is an old victorian house that is not too gawdy and that has been tastefully restored and equipped with modern amenities and style. The room we stayed in was spacious and had a large stand alone bath as well as large shower. The location is also very good, and James will make sure to arrange transport to whatever tourist attractions or areas you want to visit. I'd recommend this to any tourist or business traveler going through Cape Town - James will take great care of you.

Cheviot Place Guest House is THE perfect Bed & Breakfast in Capetown. Don't look anywhere else !! An adorable Victorian house located in Greenpoint, walking distance to the V & A Waterfront, Signal Hill and multiple restaurants. James, the owner of this beautiful place, makes you feel at home from the very first moment. He is an amazing host who goes above and beyond with personalized tips and recommendations. Anything goes - from beach towels to fully equipped picknick hamper and blanket, restaurant reservations etc. ....not to mention the super-delicious breakfasts and wonderful rooms. Thanks again James - I simply love your place !

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully decorated. The Sea Loft certainly has the best view and even its own littl...

This is an really good stay, the proprietor, James, goes the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable.
Within easy reach of the Victoria and Alfred waterfront and restaurants it is ideal.
Need information, just ask James, his restaurant recommendations were first class, he even booked them for us.

What a great place!
Perfect located near in Green Point near the Football Stadium of the World Cup 2010. A beautiful renovated victorian house with a lovely atmosphere and James as perfect host. We got so many tips and help - unbelievable. Thanks a lot! The trip to the Cape of Good Hope with the "Tourist Radio" converter has been great with all these information. The house is perfectly clean and quite, Very good breakfast with five variations.
James has been with distance the most enthusiastic host on our trip and made the final days at Cap Town an absolut highlight. Cap Town at it's best!!!

Four friends and I visited Cheviot a week ago and we loved it! We were very well looked after by the manager and his family and they made us feel right at home. The rooms were charming and clean and the breakfasts were delicious! We were advised on where to go and what to see as soon as we arrived and were treated to an ice cold beer! We were sad to leave and would definitely return if we decide to visit Cape Town again. Couldn't recommend this place any stronger!
