Well positioned for visits to Kirstenbosch and Cape Town City Centre. Easy booking via the website and friendly and personal reception. Positioned in a quiet neighborhood. The room was comfortable with a friendly veranda and beautiful garden with swimming . Spa treatments available but book in advance.

We chose CapeAngel Guesthouse for the proximity to the Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens. Little did we know that we had found a gem of a B&B. Lynn Angel was very helpful in finding places for us to see and dine. The breakfasts were absolutely to die for; we felt that we were treated like royalty. The B&B was beautifully decorated and...

John and I have had two blissful days staying at CapeAngel Guesthouse in Fernwood. It was a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience in the beautiful home and garden.

Beautiful house, amazing décor from the far East intermingled with "country classic" provide a very comfortable stay. We loved the outdoor (covered) lounge and dining area, bit chilly in early September to eat outside at night, but breakfast overlooking the pool area and treed garden was lovely. Very comfortable room, attention to detail was of a high standard (a kettle... More

I travel a few times a year to do business in Cape Town, and on my last trip in July I stayed at the Cape Angel Guesthouse for three nights. Cape Angel for me is the perfect guesthouse. It is a very spacious and comfortable guesthouse that is very much “home from home”. The room is of a high standard,... More

Staying at CapeAngel is indeed a heavenly experience. The house is beautiful and luxuriously furnished with a tranquil garden that creates the illusion that you are in a secluded spot far away from any city.

I was one of the first people to stay in this guesthouse following the return of its owner, well known fine dining chef Lynn Angel from her sabbatical. It is worth staying here for the food and personal attention alone. Lynn cooks like a dream. The house is charming and luxurious with a chatty parrot and beautiful quiet spaces to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This luxurious home is situated in a quiet residential street in sought after Fernwood Newlands, a very smart upmarket neighbourhood of Cape Town. By car you are a convenient 15 minutes from the centre of the city and the gourmet restaurants of the city bowl and waterfront and 20 minutes from the airport. It is a 5-8 minute walk to the internationally acclaimed Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The house has two comfortable bedrooms each with queen size beds. The en-suite travetine tiled bathrooms feature baths and separate showers. Two beautiful formal lounges are there for your pleasurable use and quiet time, one featuring a large fireplace and the other overlooking the pool. An enormous undercover patio leads onto the garden and it is the ideal place to relax. I live on the property with 4 beautiful cats, a very chatty parrot and a large dog. I look forward to sharing my beautiful home with you whether you are on vacation or a business trip. I am a professional chef, and restaurant consultant. Breakfast is not a standard spread but is tailored to your taste and prepared for each guest in person and is inclusive of the rate. I offer fine dining experiences in the magnificently appointed main dining room or beautiful outdoor area with views of the mountain. These special gourmet events can be organised with me at very reasonable cost. With your bedroom down the hall and no driving after a couple of drinks required, dining at a chef's table has never been more convenient and safe! Cavendish Square, a very chic shopping mall with many smart shops, elegant boutiques and restaurants is less than 10 minutes by car. An Uber service is always just minutes away. There is secure and safe undercover parking at the house for 2 cars. The beautiful Baxter Theatre is also less than 10 minutes away and features shows and musicals by the cream of SA and international talent. Fernwood suburb is Cape Town's best kept quiet and leafy secret. It is small and exclusive with easy access to all the main attractions of Cape Town. It features walking trails and its own neighbourhood river meander with picnic tables and scenic views. Absolutely ideal for a leisurely bottle of wine at the river with views of magnificent kloofs around the Kirstenbosch side of Table Mountain. ... more   less
