Guest quarters were well kept and had great, old world character. Staff was outstanding. Breakfast was like home. Full breakfast and made to order. After returning from sightseeing, coffee or tea was brought to my room. Would definitely stay there again.

Brenda's service is amazing, she really make you feel most welcome and cared for. She really deserves a big bonus for going above and beyond the call od duty to make all us cyclists feel better after the disappointment of not racing.

We spent only one night before returning home, so this was a good location on the way to the airport. The gusthouse has a very Britsh style, it could be somewere in the UK. Nice breakfast terrace with great view over the Cape town harbour bay. Very friendly staff and service. Wifi very speedy.

The guesthouse is nice and clean, however, a little bit old but it adds to the charm, and it's located close to downtown. The owner is very welcoming and attentive. The price is cheap and it comes with a good breakfast. Much recommended.

The old colonial house is very charming and comfortable; the owner is always smiling and available for every need. Breakfast super, served on the terrace in the windless days! Close to the city center, using its own car. Ample secure parking also at night.
