Guesthouses & Small Boutique Hotels in Cape Town

We are looking for suggestions for 3-4 star guesthouses or small boutique hotels in Cape Town in the Waterfront or Green Point areas, we think but we're not sure of the location. We would like to hold the cost to $150 USD per night if possible, maybe a little more if a great place .We intend to do the Winelands and Peninsula day tours and a day of shopping while in Cape Town.

Also what is the average cost of transport from the airport to the city center?

You might want to check out Spring Tide Inn. Not really near the Waterfront but in Seapoint, but it's a comfortable walk along the ocean (45 minutes), and only $6 by taxi. I just wrote a review about them on TripAdvisor.

arkyelephantlovers,

Here is my suggestion of two Green Point establishments that are within your budget that I have used over and over for the past 10 years. These places of stay have never failed my visitors in terms of their expectations:

Davids Guesthouse

Wonderful venue with fantastic hosts. Close to city as well as the Green Point strip where there are many restaurants. Well appointed and has to be amongst the best value in Cape Town. Highly recommended.

Well located. Lovely guesthouse with super friendly host. Great value for money and certainly not expensive. Rooms are done up in a rustic manner with all conveniences available. Great breakfast area.

Needless to say you have not mentioned when you intend coming to Cape Town however if it is over the Wolrd Cup period of June to July 2010 then all of the above goes out of the window as reasonable accommodation over this period is as tough as nails to find.

You should be able to find an airport to city shuttle for R240 or slightly less quite easily. For more shuttle information go to or write to

Hope the above helps and that you have a great stay in our wonderful city.

The property, more than two hectares in size, situated on the outskirt of the former fishing village Gordon's Bay, lies in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Cape area, framed by the Helderberg chain, the Hottentot Holland Mountains and the eastern False Bay.

The huge garden, the spacious veranda and the cosy lounge, as well as the apartments itself offer so much space to feel the generosity of Sunset Manor.

limetree, you must explain something to me.

I think we all on TA can read websites and the marketing that goes with it.

Whats the sense of copy and paste a website text and paste it here as recommendation?

What is your background and reasoning???

Thanks for clarification.

im sorry if my copy and pasting offended you, but i am quite busy and didnt have enough time to complete a short paragraph better then their own website states. i have stayed at these lovely places and i got to know the owners quite well and i promised that when i left i would spread the word about their places. and since i am late in reviewing their guest houses i felt rushed and paniced to please them.

i hope that my rushed posts didnt put you off considering them as a place to stay as they were both extremely comfortable gorgeous places.

I understand. Very kind of you.

I believe it would be better to capture a review which is always visible when searching for accommodaton in the respective area.

i have stayed at the sunset manor, and the understated vibe of the hotel is very unpretentious creating a perfect relaxing atmosphere. The views are incredible and the helpful friendly staff put you at ease.

**for adventures and walkers this place is ideal!**

Just to clarify...Sunset Manor is in Gordons Bay and not Greenpoint or Waterfront.
