A lovely quiet venue with great breakfast and a warm welcome. I arrived late but Brenda graciously had left lights on and the room prepared and ready for me. I can heartily recommend this as a stopover for business people with meetings in the area, with a spacious room, generous breakfast and easy access to the newlands and claremont area....

Well located bnb to access most main roads and shops eith ease yet very quiet and personable. Found room 5 to be next to breakfast area and noisy from relatively early. Lovely comfortable bed and good quality bedding. Highly recommended.

A fabulous place with fantastic host. Great hospitality. Lovely dog. Close to airport and city. We stayed a week and had a great time. Easy to get in and out of the city for day trips to the various great locations around Cape Town.

This was the fourth time I had stayed at Lavender House, but my first review. Well situated in the southern suburb of Rondebosch, within 5 mins walk of Newlands stadium, Lavender House is perfectly located to explore the many sights of the Cape Town area and Peninsula. But what really makes the place is the wonderful Brenda and her team...

We have stayed at Lavender House three times and can highly recommend it. Brenda, the owner is a gracious, kind and helpful hostess. We have had the Vanilla Room once and the Jasmine Room twice. Both are a good size and tastefully furnished with good quality bed linen and bath towels. We have not stayed in the Bergamot Room but...

I loved staying at Lavender House; my room was huge! (I expected a shoe box for a B&B) And the walk in shower was a luxury I was not expecting. Free WiFi and basic amenities were included (kettle, fridge, hairdryer, what more could you ask for?!) Brenda was a wonderful host who made sure I was comfortable and well fed...

Staying at the Lavender House has been the highlight of my trip to Cape Town. The room is a great size with all amenities. The breakfasts are fresh and plentiful. And the owner, Brenda, could teach hospitality to a five-star hotel. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Our stay at Lavender House was amazing! From the minute we arrived Brenda made sure everything was perfect for us. Our room was great, breakfast was delicious, and the location is central with short drives to anything (Best if you have a rental car). We even mentioned we were going to a concert at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens so Brenda packed...
