I stayed here for the recent SA v England test at Newlands. This guesthouse was in a perfect position for us as it is a short walk to the railway station and 3 stops to Newlands and 3 into Cape Town. The guest house itself is very clean and well maintained. The rooms are large and comfortable. The staff are...

Beautiful house with excellent, warm, friendly hosts. Villa Garda has everything you could need, and it's comfortable, clean and very homely. The hosts are excellent and very friendly, helpful and responsive. Showers are hot, beds are comfy, wifi works well, breakfast is cooked to order (or continental available). It's perfect if you're working at/visiting Groote Schur hospital or UCT. There...

I cant express how much I enjoyed my stay here. Elias and Fred were so helpful, warm and welcoming, as well as all the staff. The place was bright and cheery and all my needs were met. There is free wifi and a safe in the room. It was very clean. We stayed in the cottage so there is a...

Spacious room, comfortable and warm bed, hot shower. Staff were friendly and helpful. Villa Garda is in a great location for UCT (shutle or walking uphill) and is in walking distance of restaurants, banks, etc.

I stayed at Villa Garda for a few days while visiting UCT for work. I'd definitely recommend this place as the owner and the manager are very friendly, the rooms are nice and cozy, the area is at walking distance from UCT (or there's a Jammie Shuttle bus stop nearby at Forest Hill in case). Really recommend it.

My overall rating is average and also . The rooms were very good and cleaned everyday. Beautiful view of devil's peak in the morning. Breakfast was good and staff was friendly. If ever you are visiting the University, this would be a good place to stay in a fairly quiet and relatively safe section of Mowbray.

I just spent 6 days with a group at Villa Garda. This is a beautiful guest house in a quiet neighborhood. I stayed in the Green Room in the main house, which was very quiet and cozy. Elias, the manager, is extremely professional, attentive, patient, and kind. He made returning to the house after a long day out a welcoming...

This place is great for families or people visiting the University. It's within easy walking distance from campus, and is also a short cab ride from the Waterfront and Kirstenbosch, and an easy train ride down to the beaches. It's super quaint and clean, and very quiet (except the Cape Town winds!). The pool and gardens are quite nice. The...

We liked this B%B, which is located close to the University of Cape Town, about 15-20 minutes by car from down town. The hosts were friendly, greeted us with (instant) coffee on arrival. We stayed for 3 nights, had a double room, and could just see Table Mountain from our bed. The room was quiet, although we could hear other...
