spacious rooms, beautiful objects of art around the place, personal service, good breakfast, a glass of portwine is a friendly extra service. If you need more there is a hospitality bar. Beds are good. The bed and breakfast is located near the botanical gardens, wine estatates ans still not far from the city. You need a car all the time...

Seen many 5-Star Hotels, often coming with loads of clutter and glitter. This time I have tried something a nudge more humble and was extremely pleased with my entire stay and through the line. People are extremely friendly and helpful for any request you may have. It is a very well managed hotel with just 8 rooms which are clean,...

This was our second trip to Wild Olive and it was just as good as the first back in 2014. We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The room we had was spacious and we loved the decoration. We spent 5 nights and during this time were fed really well. One evening we ate at the Guest...

Simply a delightful place. Owner has thought of everything from quiet places to gather by the pool, several different comfortable areas to meet with friends in the evening, comfortable beds, to wonderful breakfasts. Everything is sparkling clean. We arrived later in evening, and Titus did an exceptional job in making sure we felt welcome and answering any questions. Would love...

This could have been a pleasant three night stay but the wall between us and the next room was paper thin and thoughtless neighbours left their TV on all night. Breakfast was fine and the staff friendly and helpful but we will find somewhere more restful in future.

Dear Guest We apologise for the inconvenience you experienced during your stay at our house. Unfortunately the method of construction of these old houses does implicate some discomfort, which one has to accept if you want to keep the character of the house as such. We did already implement some upgrades as to sound proofing etc., but some areas would...

We had a wonderful time at a gorgous place. The breakfast was excellent with a lot of variety. A very well kept place with lovely staff and very close to the city. We felt very safe and very much looked after.

Well located in Newlands close to Cricket and Rugby stadiums. Very efficient and friendly service from all staff. Breakfasts are enough to keep you going most of the day, but freshly prepared hot food takes a little time to prepare and serve. We were a group of six staying for four nights and chose to eat in on the first...

We chose this guest house because it is in the Newland/Claremont area, closer and more convenient to the CPT airport. The guest house is very clean and well run. It was a bit difficult communicating with the owners initially as they did not receive emails sent through their website and through Gmail. It was resolved, they treated us fine (but...
