Trevoyan Guest House

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We had fantastic four days in this lovely guesthouse with its beautiful rooms, great garden and pool and very helpful hosts and staff. Location is splendid - walking distance to the centre and easy to get out of the city or over to Camps Bay as well. Christof and Urs recommended the picnic concerts in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens - a really memorable experience!

We have stayed at Trevoyan 3 or 4 times now, and always thoroughly enjoy the experience. Urs and Christoph are great hosts - very friendly, helpful and thoughtful. The rooms are very comfortable with great beds, and the service and all the staff are great. The garden and pool are lovely to relax in after a morning's sightseeing.
Trevoyan is ideally placed to get to both the Waterfront area of Cape Town as well as Table Mountain and Camps Bay. It is very safe and there are lots of good restaurants fairly close by if you don't want to take the car or a taxi further afield. Urs and Christoph will advise on which restaurants are particularly good, and even recommend one particular taxi firm who are generally the most reliable in Cape Town with the best rates too.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cape Town now.

Stayed with Urs & Christophe for 5 days from 24th Feb along with our friends. What excellent hosts. It was my husband & my first visit to South Africa and what a great start to our holiday. Our room was an excellent size with everything you could possibly need and it was a pleasure to return to the beautiful garden and swimming pool each afternoon. Breakfast was always very entertaining with Urs keeping us amused with his stories. Christophe tried very hard to obtain tickets for us to the rugby @ Newlands, but was not to be, so we had a great time watching the match in a bar at the waterfront. We all enjoyed the red & blue open top bus tours which we were able to pick up from close to Trevoyan. Our evenings at the waterfront were made especially enjoyable by Urs or Christophe arranging a taxi @ the exceptionally reasonable cost of £1 each. Thank you very much for very enjoyable time and we would like to visit again. Elaine & Trevor

Room Tip: Room 2 opens onto the garden and is very peaceful

A great thank you to you four rugbys. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Trevoyan. Really sorry that it did not work with the tickets. Assume the owner of your favourite place at the water front is missing you. Assume his turn over dropped quite a bit.
We are ready for your next visit and this time we shall order tickets in advance. Wishing you all the best. Urs and Christoph

Stayed here for 5 nights with 2 friends, from 24th February. The guest house is lovely, Urs and Christoph are so friendly, kowledgeble and helpful. The "chats" at breakfast, over "English" tea were wonderful and entertaining!!
The location is perfect for a stay in Cape Town - in a nice, safe residential area but close to restaurants etc on Kloof Street and a sort taxi ride away to the Waterfront.
Would certainly recommend this and will, hopefully return. Cape Town and South Africa get under your skin and make you want to return the minute you get home!
Thank you Urs and Christoph for a wonderful stay.

SIngle female traveller, first visit to Cape Town and never felt so welcome and safe. The hosts were lovely, went the extra mile to make sure my stay was perfect. My room was truly beautiful. Breakfast was great. Location spot on. It was a excellently run family business - a home away from home.

The guest house is great all around - lovely rooms, gorgeous building and pool, great breakfast. The location is ideal, situated between the waterfront and table mountain. The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us in terms of recommendations for trips, restaurants and so on. I'd thoroughly recommend Trevoyan for a place to stay in Cape Town.
