“Floreal House by the Table Mountain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

This was my return visit to Cape Town and I decided to go back to Floreal House in the quiet district of Oranjezicht. Natalie and her mindful staff were welcoming and as before went the extra mile to make my stay comfortable. The view of the Table Mountain from Room 1 is simply stunning.
Breakfast caters for everybody, health fanatics as well as those who are happy to surrender themselves to culinary delights.
The pool though meticulously cleaned was not warm enough to tempt me.
Floreal House is ideally situated to explore the many attractions of Cape Town and some of the best eateries in town are only twenty minutes' walk away.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a room with a view.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

The accommodation is spacious and well furnished. The staff are extremely friendly and the food was wonderful, (the muffins were to die for). We were even allowed onto their own computer to check our emails. We did find the position of the guest house a little out of the way, as we did not have our own transport, being part of a tour, and had to travel by taxi every evening when going out for dinner. This disappointed two single ladies travelling on their own, whom we met. Also, it seemed odd not to have any staff on duty in the evening apart from the security guy on the gate who was very helpful.

If we returned to South Africa and had our own rental car, we would certainly stay at the Floreal again.

Located in the Oranjezicht district of Cape Town which is a very pretty area. It has a fancy Italian cafe next door. We stayed at Room 8 which was nice and large. The staff were very friendly.

PROS:
1. Great breakfasts especially the muffins. Complimentary muscadet is available all the time.

2. Room was well decorated with plenty of room.

CONS:

a) The B&B is not walking distance to the tourist attractions of the V&A Waterfront or Table Mountain. You will need to take a taxi but its not very expensive

b) We stayed at Room 8 which is right next to the entrance. This means that your sleeps gets interrupted every time one of the guests comes back from a big night. The B&B has nice wooden floors but unfortunately it means that you can hear every step from your neighbour upstairs

c) Lots of stairs which may be an issue for the mobility impaired

Beautiful accommodation in the perfect location. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable, and the views couldn’t be beat. The breakfast was great (buffet cold breakfast and cooked-to-order hot breakfast) and the staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place to any future travelers looking for a bed & breakfast in a great area of Cape Town.

For a 4-star hotel, the family apartment is really poor. 2 kids had to sleep on a sleeping-couch which was way too short, the adultroom was small and besides that the only way to the bathroom. Next to the apartment renovation works were going on!
Friendly people, good breakfast!
