“Excellent Guest House in good location.”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

An enjoyable stay in a very comfortable guest house with charming and helpful hosts in a very good central location. The only possible quibble was that the shower over the bath in the room was not very powerful.

We had planned to stay for two nights, but Trevoyan Guest House was so very pleasant, amiable and agreeable that we ended up staying for six nights. The owner, a Swedish or Swiss (we forget) lady of great charm and competence catered to our every wish. A sumptious breakfast (with truly remarkable, strong coffee) served with aplomb under a beautiful and flamboyant tree in the garden; Table Mountain in full view under azure skies; tasteful, never overbearing, rather victorian-colonial interiors; crisp linen sheets; refreshing pool. Plus: Trevoyan was priced very very reasonably, indeed, we cannot think of any other guest house in Cape Town (and we have tried out quite a few) that would draw us back the way this one has.

nice architecture, good designed rooms, a great place to have breakfast and a garden with view to table mountain....a dream ("Träumchen") close to the center of Capetown managed by charming people. It´s a beautiful place to enjoy and relax in Capetown !

We only stayed for 2 nights at the Trevoyan at the end of the holiday and I wish it had been longer! The house is beautiful and the rooms are of a very high standard, this felt like such luxury but at a very reasonable price! The staff are so friendly and helpful it almost feels like you are staying with friends. The house and the rooms are very clean and tidy and the pool and garden very sunny and tranquil. Great location to get to long street shops, bars and restaurants and a short cab ride to the waterfront and not too far to the airport either. Breakfast was very good and the icing on the cake, your choice of hot food and plenty of cereal, fruits, juice and cold cuts too. This guest house was a great place to stay and the perfect end the holiday, a truly great place to stay if your visiting Cape Town.

Room Tip: They all looked lovely!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 8 day stay at the Trevoyan Guest House. Centrally located and secure. Short walk to restaurants and hop on/hop off bus. 25 minute walk or a 4 dollar taxi ride to the V&A waterfront. Room, although not overly large, was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities that we needed for our travel. Very good breakfast with selection of fruit, yogurt, breads, cheeses, meats and made-to-order eggs. Variety of options to lounge on terraces, decks or by the pool. Pool was great for a refreshing dip after a full day of sight seeing. Dominique was very helpful with recommending restaurants and tours. Also generous in making calls to arrange reservations etc. Relaxing and friendly environment that allowed socialization with other guests if wanted.
Would highly recommend this guest house!

We loved our 4 nights at Trevoyan. Lovely location and within easy walk of good restaurants and the hop on/off bus. Very friendly hosts we have no hesitation in recommending Trevoyan to friends. We will certainly stay there again if we return.

My wife and I stayed here on our Honeymoon in September 2012. Trevoyan was a great start to our trip. It was very easy to find and the gated parking was also appreciated. Despite us arriving earlier than the check-in time there was no problem getting into our room. We stayed in the garden suite which was very spacious, we thought it needed freshening up but the owners (who had just taken the place over) were planning to do just that after our stay.

Unfortunately the weather wasn't warm enough to take advantage of the pool but we enjoyed relaxing in the lounge. The breakfasts were great and set us up well for the day, I was particulalry impressedf with the coffee machine!

The location is great, easy to get to table mountain and out to Cape Point and only a 10 minute cab ride to the V&A but the highlight for us was being able to walk out to two great restaurants which were less than 5 minutes away.

Overall a perfect place to explore Cape Town from.
