“Excellent Value B&B”
Reviewed January 22, 2011

I stayed 4 nights while in Capetown at this well run, clean and affordable B&B. I had a large front room facing table mountain. The guest house is in the nice Oranjezicht district but like all areas you should not walk about at night and they advise you put your valuables/passport in the personal safe in the room. Tony & Gael are very efficient and helpful with advice. Room was clean and comfortable with a super breakfast in the common kitchen area that has a large TV. There is a cardphone in foyer for calling taxis etc or they will will call for you. Cards only cost 20 rand from supermarket. Excite Taxis highly recommended and I ordered night before for early departure to airport. It is 15 min walk to town or 10 min to Kloof Nek rd restaurants or nearest supermarket. I walked to Waterfront and no problem but got taxi back as its uphill. A great good value stay.

We stayed at the Belmont Guest House for 4 nights and found it to be an excellent choice. Perfectly located right under Table Mountain, walking distance into town (but there are steep hills) - but we had a rented car so this was not required.

Well priced and includes a good breakfast. The owners are knowledgeable of the area and made our stay very comfortable. Will stay there again when I return to Cape Town!

We spent 5 nights at Belmont Guest House and found it to be a reasonably priced, well located and well run option in Cape Town. It is no-frills:. there is no TV in the guest rooms, no internet hookup, no telephones or air conditioning in the rooms. But the guest house is clean and comfortable and you can't beat the price or the location. It is a 10-15 minute walk to most attractions in Cape Town. The owners are very helpful, with suggestions about where to go, what to avoid. The Garden District is close and has an excellent selection of good restaurants. The guest house provides a good continental breakfast which includes cold meats and cheeses, delicious strong coffee and fresh juice. Most of the rooms have en suite bathrooms.

This B&B was so much less expensive than other places I looked at in Cape Town. It is not within walking distance of most sights but cabs are quick and fairly cheap. There is a great view of Table Mountain from the front of the house.

The rooms are relatively small (some smaller than others) with no phones, TVs, or other amenities, but they are very clean and the beds are comfortable. The hosts are friendly as is the woman who cleans and takes care of breakfast. Breakfast was tasty and filling. The only hot food was poached or hard-boiled eggs, but there was fresh fruit, yogurt, different cereals, cheese, sliced meats, and toast.

We have just returned from spending 8 nights at Belmont House in Cape Town.

Tony and Gael are excellent hosts.

This is very affordable accommodation situated very close to city, waterfront, table top mountain, etc.

We had a lovely time staying here and would recommend it to anyone, great for all travellers young and old, families too.

The breakfast every morning is fab!!!
