I enjoyed very much my 3 nights stay at this guest-house because: 1. Situated in a very quite place 2. Comfortable 3. Clean 4. Home atmosphere For some people its non-central site (ca. 30 min walking distance from the Company's Garden) may be of disadvantage.

Nice people, nice old historic house. I enjoyed the old house with the wooden floors and door and window frames. If you are looking for old class with some modern, this is the place for you.

Spacious, clean, comfortable, beautiful, absolutely everything you could ask for after a long day of meetings, could not want for more! Breakfast is great and staff super friendly. Added bonus was the spacious bath and shower and extra large bed. I arrived very late, yet received such a welcoming greeting!

The location is great. The staff are friendly & helpful with great restaurant tips. The rooms are neat, tidy & well-appointed. The breakfast was quite good with made-to-order available (and included!). And they even have an elevator to get to the top floors! We quite enjoyed our brief one night stay & I would highly recommend Cape Riviera to anyone...
