Although I was just invited for a free breakfast there, I was most impressed by the friendliness of manager- and staff. I spend a good few hours there enjoying the inner courtyard and was impressed by their clean, up-to-scratch rooms. They are in walking distance of the Gardens Shopping Centre and center town is also not too far away. I...

After booking this stay I had emails from Barbara about our arrival long before we came. We had a late flight into Cape Town and wouldn't arrive until 10pm. Barbara arranged to be there to greet us and made us very welcome. She showed us how the gates worked and gave us a quick tour of the house before we...

The Cactusberry B&B is only a walk away from Cape Town center and other central attractions. It is an old house that has been turned into a perfect B&B. A small kitchenette is available as well as a lovely shower and very stylish and comfortable beds. There are also parking opportunities and we never had any trouble. The B&B is...

You can't go wrong with a stay at Cactusberry Lodge. It is centrally located in Cape Town with easy access to buses and to highways for driving. Since it's central, taxi fare home from the waterfront wasn't even very expensive. There are nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Barbara will take the time to go over your daily plans and...

When I had relatives visiting Cape Town, I trusted innkeeper Barbara to host them. She was ultra-responsive and accommodating by email, and her kindness continued in person. Barbara adjusted her schedule to be present for our arrivals and departures, often helped carry our extensive luggage, and let us leave our suitcases in-room while we traveled the Garden Route for the...

After initially being a little bit sceptical of the very high ratings prior to my departure for Cactusberry, I can say with hand on heart that everything you read on TripAdvisor is warranted and worthy of the praise they receive. We stayed at Cactusberry for four days prior to commencing a 2 week tour of the Garden Route, before returning...

Everything about staying here was exemplary. The owner, Barbara, and all her staff could not have been more helpful and informative, including booking our trip to Robben Island for us. The location is great, within walking distance of the centre, but very peaceful at night. Our room was superb as was eating wonderful breakfasts outside in the lovely surroundings.

Barbara provide quick, friendly service by email and on the phone in making plans to stay there. While it did not work out because of personal physical difficult requiring a place closer to the center of town, I know we would have enjoyed it. I felt bad taking up her time in planning and not flowing through with it. Her...

We had a fantastic stay here. A beautiful, secure property, very well located just off Long and Kloof streets, with secure car parking. Our room was wonderful. Airy and bright, with its own balcony. Great, powerful shower and a well stocked honesty bar. Barbara (the owner) is incredibly helpful indeed and very friendly. Breakfasts were amazing. You won't regret booking...
