Belmonte Guesthouse
Ranked #22 of 48 Paarl B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 1, 2010

Stayed 2 nights in November 2010. Guesthouse is beautifully furnished and rooms are big and modern with large bathrooms which are serviced daily. All rooms have balconies that offer amazing views of paarl and surrounds.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice - cereals, fruit, cheeses, croissants, egg and bacon made a nice spread.

The pool is stunning and adds to a magnificent venue.

Reasonable rates and within short driving distance of shops and restaurants.

Overall a perfect base for any trip to the winelands and will most definately stay here again when next in paarl.

We booked into the Belmont Guesthouse for a romantic birthday weekend and mini break. We were horribly disappointed.
The guesthouse lacked ambience and felt quite cold and uninviting. We must add that we were the only people checked into the guesthouse that weekend which didn't help much.
We arrived at the guesthouse with nobody available to check us in except for a domestic worker who could hardly speak a word of English. We then had to phone the owner on our cellphone to find out where she was. We waited around the pool for about 15 mins before she arrived to check us in. The room was large and spacious with a lovely view but rather cold!
Breakfast the next morning was the same drama - it was just us in a restaurant lacking atmosphere - we eventually got up and switched on the CD player for a bit of a vibe.
Again the host/owner was nowhere to be seen leaving the poor domestic worker to try and take our order (bearing in mind she can't speak English). The breakfast was nothing special and yet another disappointment. We felt ripped off yet again. We left our breakfast half finished and checked out immediately. We would never recommend this guesthouse to anyone. Just because we were the only people staying there doesn't mean we should have to put up with shocking service. We were not surprised the guesthouse was empty!

BelmontePaarl, Owner at Belmonte Guesthouse, responded to this reviewResponded July 16, 2010

As the guesthouse owner, i would like to respond to this review simply by saying that i regret the couple's dissatisfaction over their stay at Belmonte, my staff tried to be as courteous as possible in my absence as i was not warned by exact time of their arrival, I did greet them on arrival, and they did seem very irrirated . We try to be discreet and leave as much privacy as possible to the guests during their stay, the fact that they booked during a time where they were the only guests, is no fault of our own,it is a small, exclusive guest house. The lady on duty is a foreigner who understands English , but i felt was a bit overwhelmed by their rather stern attitude towards her. As far as breakfast , they did not even give the staff a chance to serve them properly. I subsequently apologized by e mail on the fact that they did not enjoy their stay, and offered a free stay on a date of their choice, which they did not accept. I am very happy in the way i conduct myself with customers and have very loyal guests , but it is difficult to please everyone.

Belmonte is excellent value for money. The Guesthouse is stylishly decorated and has the most amazing views over Paarl and the mountains. We felt very welcome and at home. The breakfast was also nice. Our room was quite big (not sure how the others look) and the bathroom had a huge shower. It appears not to be within walking distance to restaurant and shops. We will visit again and definitely recommend this Guesthouse to our friends and family.
