Tom's Guest House
Ranked #19 of 156 Cape Town Central B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Really nice place, and with the advantage of being central (15-20 minute walk to Green Market Square). But the most striking thing for me about Tom's is the wonderful service provided, by particularly Guenter, who speaks fluent English. Guenter always made sure that you knew how to get to wherever you wanted to get, would give you down-to-earth advice on everything from parking to where to have dinner (including booking it) - it made a major difference to my stay.

Tom has been very welcoming and helpful. He gave us some good advice for dinner. Breakfast was great and coffee excellent! Nice and spacious rooms. Parking facilities in front of the guesthouse. Small but nice swimming pool.

We stayed at Tom's guesthouse in September 2011 and was treated very well by Gunther and his staff. Gunther provided us with excellent breakfast and organized tours to the town. He was always there to assist with any questions we had and made excellent recommendations on restaurants which were situated nearby. Had a week 's stay and enjoyed every moment of it. Their wifi was an additional bonus as we could Skype with our family back home as well. Well done!

The Guest House is very nice and cosy. The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in a very nice and save nabourhood, just ten minutes walking distance from the center of Cape Town. The rooms are very good organized and clean. The prices are suitable and affordable. They have a familiar atmosphere and welcome everyone with open arms. You can get recommendings from the owners who are always around.

Synoptic: a nice place to stay for a vacation in Cape Town!!!
