The setting of this guest house is simply incredible. I shared a room with a couple of friends whilst visiting the area in January 2016 and loved every minute of our stay. The guest house is small so the service provided by Marion, Peter and Jacky(the adorable hotel Jack Russell) is very personal and warm. Breakfast is served each morning...

Peter and Marion were excellent hosts during our 3 nights in Cape Town. Peter treated us every morning with a fantastic breakfast and many insights of every day life in SA. Our spacious room was very comfortable with a luxurious bathtub; unfortunately the weather was too cold for us to enjoy the outside pool. We will have to come back...

We stayed 4 nights at Ambiente Guesthouse in January 2015. Marion and Peter are very friendly and extremely helpfull and they made our stay very pleasant. The guest house is child friendly and our kids at 3 and 5 years loved staying here. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. We would definitely stay here again!

We are spending our honeymoon in South Africa. Our first part takes us through the Garden Route. Our journey started in Cape Town, where we stayed at the lovely Ambiente Guesthouse. Peter and Marion took care of us like guest family and therefore, we had the best start ever that I could imagine!

Very cozy environment and nice Peter and Marion. Rooms are fantastic for couples and families, you really feel like home there. Breakfast is very good and homelike too, and usually hosts come to breakfast for a nice friendly talk and you can learn some travel tips from them as they live in Cape town for long.

Stayed here for 4 days in the bridal suite. Lovely rooms, bridal suite had view over the bay. Guest house is directly under Table Mountain with great views. Run by a very pleasant German couple who do their best to make their guests feel comfortable and help with tips for trips and restaurant bookings. Great breakfast.
