We stayed in Gilmourhill on 29 and 30 December 2013. What a pleasant experience! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful Cape-style house. The location of Gilmourhill is wonderful. It's close to a few very good restaurants and albeit in Cape Town, still just outside of the hustle and bustle. The area is safe as well - we had a pleasant walk one evening to Da Vinci's (where we had dinnner) and back to the B&B. The furniture and decoration are beautiful and we stayed in the top room which was very spacious with the bathtub overlooking Table Mountain. Our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good, especially on our last morning when we were served pancakes with bacon and syrup. Maureen was also very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return!
