An excellent location overlooking the Table mountain. A walking distance from V&A waterfront. Rooms were spacious. Felt like a home away from home. Breakfast was great. The staff was very friendly. Area around is very safe and you can visit the waterfront even in the late evening.

We stayed at House on the Hill during a 5 day visit in June 2016. Very friendly owners, nice clean rooms, good location and cosy atmosphere. Arranging tours, air port pick-ups (even after long delays) or plain advice about the city, it's all possible. Great value for money!
