Our room had amazing view of Table Mountain from on side and across to V & A Waterfront from the other. You can pre book on site parking -but be quick, there are only 2 spots. We...

Friendly reception. Disappointed that I had no view of the harbour/ ocean as I had expected. Lovely room décor, but TV is dated, there was no remote for the TV and the bath was dirty. Also a friendly note that diabetics need sweetener and cannot have sugar. I would like to suggest that you offer sweetener as well as sugar....

The position of the guest house was within easy walking distance to the "hop on-off" bus stop. The view from room 10 is superb and sitting out on the...

We visited Cape Riviera at the end of our beautiful but exhausting 3 week tour true South Africa. We hoped for a relaxing and luxurious stay at this 4 star establishment. Fortunately we were not disappointed. The staff was kind and helpful. Breakfast was freshly prepared and each morning there were 2 or 3 creative specials to choose from. The...

We stayed at the Cape Riviera for 4 nights in Sep '14 and had an amazing time! This guest house is in an ideal location, and being right by the reservoir always made it a great landmark to find where we were. The views were amazing - we were spoilt in staying in room 10 - this room had the...

We stayed only one night. Very nice hotel, nice room, good breakfast. Short distance to Tafelberg and also city center. Definitely a recommendation. Must be very nice in summer when you can enjoy the pool.

We stayed at Cape Riviera at the end of a long road trip. It was an experience, as the art deco interior made it very interesting. They were very accommodating as we had a car, they provided a garage to park it in upon our request. The breakfasts were excellent, and the staff was helpful and friendly. All of the...
