Harfield Guest Villa
Ranked #1 of 10 Claremont B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We have just returned from 9 nights at Harfield. Graham, Christel, and the rest of the staff will make your stay so enjoyable. The rooms are comfortably furnished, and the breakfasts are amazing. If you like a quiet drink in the evening, there is a great selection from the 'honesty' bar in the lounge or your 'mini bar' in your room. Graham also made take-away breakfasts for our son who we were visiting, and lent us picnic chairs so we could watch his cricket. Nothing is too much trouble. The location is great for Newlands Cricket or Rugby grounds, only 15 mins walk at the most. There are a number of restaurants in walking distance at Harfield Village, or 5 minute drive to restaurants in Claremont/Newlands. It only takes 20 minutes to get to the V&A Waterfront or Table Mountain. Camps Bay, Cape Point are also a must. This was a holiday of a lifetime, Cape Town is amazing! We look forward to returning for the England Test match Graham.

We stayed for 5 nights at the end of January and loved it. Graham is a fantastic host and is so helpful. Fantastic breakfast, great rooms and service. Would recommend to anyone!
It's located in a nice quiet neighborhood and a street away from a number of nice places to eat/drink. Great views and just a 10 min drive from the city.

A home away from home. I will be back, but with more friends! Neighborhood was excellent, alot of nice cafe's and restaurants within walking distance. Owner and staff very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Even printed out a walking map for me! Would highly recommend. .a bit far from Cape Town city center.

The owners were really friendly and cook a delicious breakfast! We stayed in one of the 2 bed cottages and the accommodation was excellent. It had everything that you need and was very comfortable. Highly reccommended and well located.

I thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous view, the luxurious room and the friendly staff at Harfield Guest Villa. The clean, comfortable, welcoming bed was a cherry on the top and I slept amazingly well. Thank you for your advice on the traffic and beaches depending the S/Easterly/Westerly. So useful!!!!

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
