We had fantastic four days in this lovely guesthouse with its beautiful rooms, great garden and pool and very helpful hosts and staff. Location is splendid - walking distance to the centre and easy to get out of the city or over to Camps Bay as well. Christof and Urs recommended the picnic concerts in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens -...

We have stayed at Trevoyan 3 or 4 times now, and always thoroughly enjoy the experience. Urs and Christoph are great hosts - very friendly, helpful and thoughtful. The rooms are very comfortable with great beds, and the service and all the staff are great. The garden and pool are lovely to relax in after a morning's sightseeing. Trevoyan is...

A great thank you to you four rugbys. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Trevoyan. Really sorry that it did not work with the tickets.

SIngle female traveller, first visit to Cape Town and never felt so welcome and safe. The hosts were lovely, went the extra mile to make sure my stay was perfect. My room was truly beautiful. Breakfast was great. Location spot on. It was a excellently run family business - a home away from home.

The guest house is great all around - lovely rooms, gorgeous building and pool, great breakfast. The location is ideal, situated between the waterfront and table mountain. The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us in terms of recommendations for trips, restaurants and so on. I'd thoroughly recommend Trevoyan for a place to stay in Cape...

I was rather desperate when booking this, having looked at more than 60 B&B/self-catering options around Cape Town. We had visited the city before, so didn't need the honeymoon-suite-feeling (and rates) that you can find at some places. All we wanted was a nice place to end our holiday without breaking the bank. My modest expectations were happily exceeded here....

Trevoyan is definitely a good place to start your trip to SA. Friendly staff, great rooms (garden room 7), a pool, and a good location. From what we have seen the price is competitive and they are honest about what they offer.
