“Wonderful in every way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights in January and were so impressed at the lovely rooms and the welcoming atmosphere. Utah looked after every detail and was able to recommend places to eat and easy ways to see the sights. Tintagel has trustworthy drivers to take guests to the airport; this was much appreciated. We slept well in the comfortable beds and ate delicious breakfasts. The location was ideal in every respect. If you are traveling in South Africa, you should make a special trip to stay at Tintagel.

Thank you for recommending South Africans to Tintagel guesthouse.
We think that is vital to have competent and trustworthy drivers - especially if they are our first contact with our guests at Cape Town airport

There was a very nice and welcoming atmosphere, spotless rooms, breakfast was included. I showed up just for one night but was impressed with the service and friendly staff. Unfortunately I found this gem at the end of my stay in Cape Town so I only had one night there. Would've stayed for a full week had I known about it in the first place.

Your one night stay review is as valuable as guests who have stayed over a few nights.
We just love our Scandinavian guests - We have had people visit us from Finland, Sweden and Norway

Stayed here for 6 nights recently and were made most welcome by the owner ( Ivan ) and his managers Utah and Adri.
Comfortable rooms, great breakfast and nice indoor / outdoor sitting areas.
Excellent location - Kloof St was a 2 minute walk away , and a 5 minute stroll to Long Street.

Nice touch - Scottish and Welsh flags were flown on our arrival .

I stayed at this place for two nights and found everything absolutely perfect. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, helping me with everything from recommendations about the surroundings to organizing a rental car (from a local company, which was much cheaper than the international car rentals). If I can come back I would like to stay here again.

Thank you for your review. We like to recommend smaller car hire companies - and we have a good relationship with two local companies - they provide a personal service at a more affordable rate

We loved our stay at Tintagel! The rooms were nice and clean, it had lovely indoor and outdoor sitting areas, delicious breakfast, and was in a great location. Most importantly, the staff was so welcoming, we felt like a part of the family...

We would definitely go back again!!

I spent three nights at Tintagle Guesthouse and had a very pleasant stay.
As soon as I arrived Adri arranged a private taxi which took me to next day very early in the moring to the cable car station where I started to climb the table mountain.
All in all Tintagel is a very save place at a great location with lovely rooms, friendly staff, great breakfast in a quiet garden!

Room Tip: No 7 is downstairs and has its own shady sitting area in the garden

Just wrapping up a four night stay at the guesthouse. Location is perfect, you can walk almost anywhere and feel totally safe. Great value for money. Sweet, clean rooms. Lovely breakfast area indoors and outdoors which were perfect for getting some work done, overhung with grapevines and filled with sunlight. The owners and staff are accommodating and interesting. Ivan amazingly procured us tickets to the Mandela memorial concert last night which was magical. And -- when we ran into him leaving the stadium -- he walked us back and gave us a great Cape Town history lesson as we strolled the streets. Will unreservedly stay here again if I am lucky enough to return. Cape Town is the best.

What a fantastic response!
Yes - Ivan Flint is possibly the most enthusiastic guesthouse owner-host in my opinion. He is also very knowledgeable on South African affairs - we can certainly follow his example...
