Superb place to stay for business or leisure. House is modestly decorated, dining area neat and tidy. Staff friendly and accommodating with last minute meal requests. Rooms are neat, quiet, stylish. Linen fresh and made a good night rest after a long day of meetings.

I was glad to be able to sleep one night in this Guesthouse, I would sleep there again. It is a nice location near Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Near the Hiking Trail to Devils Peak, I can recommend to do a sunrise tour up. The staff is super friendly and I enjoyed my breakfast :) You gonna see me again Kidger!...

This is really a guesthouse that deserves the 4 star rating! We liked everything there. It is definitely a place to return to. Nice location close to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden. Nice room and really comfortable bed. 100% satisfaction for us.

Dear tommyj761, We have to agree with you on the location! The next time you come back to visit us, we would highly recommend you attend one of the Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts (if you have not yet attended one). This is in the summer, but you are of course also welcome to return in the Winter! Regards, The Kidger Team

A great guest house with a prefect location close to the city and main access roads. I had the room in the courtyard and the WiFi was unfortunately non-existent however! This needs to be fixed if you are going attract business travellers.

The property is a beautiful gem, but in comparison to other b&b's and guest houses in the immediate area, you can get better value and a more pleasant environment. I didn't feel welcome and was apologized to every day I was in occupation.

Reviewed 16 May 2016

Our twin room was very small, and we could hardly move inside. We kept tripping on the old rugs on the floor. As we didn't want to be disturbed, we switched off the dripping fountain outside our room, but then it continued to drip all night! Parking inside is very difficult and cramped. Breakfast was average and unexciting

Good quiet location. With off street parking. Nice garden. Clean room. Good breakfast. Host available. Only complaint was we were in back bedroom and it was very hot so lots of Mosquitos and would have preferred an air conditioner.
