My mother and I I just returned from a fantastic two week trip to Africa. The second week of my trip was spent in Cape Town...what a beautiful city it was. Everything was perfect, including our accomodations at Bayflowers Guest House.
From the moment that I booked my stay, I knew we would enjoy our stay there. Michael, the owener, provided excellent customer service from day one by personally emailing me to confirm my stay and to ensure me that everything would be perfect when my mother and I arrived.
Indeed that was the fact. We arrived on Sunday, June 27th with a warm greeting from Michael. He showed us to our room which was a nice sized room with a personal bathroom. Please keep in mind that this was a nice and quaint little bed and breakfast, so it didn't necessarily have all the frills of a hotel, but it served its purpose. The bed was plush, the bathroom was clean and there were two nice big windows to invite the sun and cool breeze into the room.
After arriving, we decided to extend our stay by one additional day. We were planning to return to Joburg were we depart back to the US, but I was not happy with the hotel we were staying at so we stayed an additional night, which I do not regret at all.
The staff, Tanya especially, were all so accomodating and very pleasant. Each morning, we had breakfast with the other guests. This was nice, because you got to meet people from all over the world and have a nice breakfast conversation...something you can't readily do at a hotel. The bonus is that Tanya made the best eggs on that side of the Earth (smile).
The guest house is also in close walking distance to all that happening in Cape Town such as the VA Waterfront, the Cape Town Stadium, local pharmacy, ocean and more. This was good for me because my mother and I got our much needed excercise.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay. They were very accomodating in more than one way and the customer service was top notch. Whenever I return to Cape Town, I will be returning to Bayflowers and recommend any and everyone to check them out.
