I just spent a week at this elegant and a eco-friendly B&B. Marvelous room, comfortable bed and really great views of Table Mountain. The location is great for seeing sites in the city and for day trips to the surrounding vineyards and sea shore. Graham and his staff make you feel at home and serve top notch breakfast and evening meals. I did not have a car this trip and Graham arranged a reliable and affordable car service There are plenty of restaurents within a block.

Room Tip: The single rooms are fantastic -but consider treating your self to a cottage

Christel and Graham are just wonderful hosts. I will definitly try to do the chroisant with eggs and cheese on my own. But Im sure it will never taste as good as in the Harfield Gues Villa. The room was amazing and the locatioin is ideal (with a car) I had the best time with them. Thank you and see you again soon!

Room Tip: the appartments are fantastic!!

I arrived in Cpt late afternoon on the same day of opening of parliament with no place to saty (agent mess up) and my work engagements meant I could only get to a B&B at 11. Not only did these guys acomodate me at the last minute, the friednly hostess stayed up to let me in after my first choice said it would be too late in the night for me to check in.

Stunning views of the mountain and felt like I slept on a cloud with what seemed like 1000 thread count crisp linen. Def would recommend if you want a flexible while comforatble place to stay.

Oh did I mention they also gave me a valentines card at breakfast :) Nice little touches make all the difference when one is far from home.

Hi Zinzi

Thank you for your nice words in this review. Penny who made your booking was quite stressed out when she couldn't find accommodation. Luckily we had a cancellation and we are always more than willing to help, even if a late check in, if we have a room available. That is what we are here for!

We are happy to hear you had a good experience with us.

We hope to see you again soon!

Have a great week.

Kind Regards

I stayed at harfield guest villa for 4 nights. I had a huge attic room with fantastic view of table mountain. I am glad that I found them and were able to stay with them. They are located in the residence area which is 30min drive away from city center. I couldn't hire a car because they were all sold out in high season, I had to take a taxi everywhere. (There is a train station in 10min walk- but they didn't suggest it as I was a female solo traveler.) But their hospitality made me feel it still worths staying there. I was treated as if I had been one of their old friends, I was not the one of the guests recognized by 'room number'(this happens when you stay at the big hotels). Throughout my stay, Graham and Christel were very friendly, attentive and caring. They were always there for me -the suggestions of the activities, organizing transportations, everyday meals(they have wide range of menu and they were delicious!), feedback for the day tour etc. Thanks so much for making my stay so pleasant and memorable. I will come back!

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at Harfield Guest Villa. Graham is a wonderful host and welcomed us in a friendly fashion We were upgraded to a cottage which was comfortable and spotless. We really enjoyed the thoughtful gestures ie chocolates on the pillow with flowers and leaves scattered on the bed. There were also delicious biscuits to eat with the filter coffee.
Breakfast was absolutely delicious and Graham was always up-beat and informative. Harfield Village is a delightful place as the people who live there are friendly and always willing to chat. There are many restaurants to choose from at night. We had delicious meals at Loco International Restaurant and First Avenue. Graham also cooks dinner if you do not want to eat out. Harfield Guest Villa is indeed a home away from home and we highly recommend this B & B!

I was very happy with my stay at Hartfield House. Graham was most hospitable and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We had a beautiful view from our room. The breakfasts were delicious with a wide range of choices.
