Cozy and well situated guest house close to the very city center. Nice rooms, excellent service, good breakfast, parking place directly in front of the door. However what counts most is the personal and extremely helpful care by the owners Günther and Martin. They really cared for us, gave us most valuable advice, what to do, what NOT to do,... More

It feels like arriving a in a safe harbor - cozy rooms, excellent service, owners that care and make your in Capetown more valuable. Toms's Guesthouse is located perfectly for excursions to the table mountains, trips to the city, the beach and is surrounded by nice restaurants.

We really felt at home at Tom's Guesthouse. Günter und Martin pampered us from the moment we made our booking. They came personally to pick us up from the airport, waited for hours in the middle of the night, as our plane was delayed, helped us organize our tours in the area, booked our rental car and drove us there...

This three star guesthouse has just been one of the worst experiences I have ever had and truly ruined my holiday. The positive reviews of this guesthouse are somewhat baffling based on the experience we have just had. We stayed here at the recommendation of family and had been really looking forward to it. Firstly, the location is convenient for... More

I can't think of a single thing a traveler could legitimately complain about when it comes to Tom's Guest House. The decor is beautiful, beds comfortable, bathrooms appealing, and staff welcoming. Beyond the big things, innkeepers Gunter and Martin nail all the little details, too. From a welcome drink to an airport ride, they set us up for a happy,... More
