We spent 3 nights at Harfield Guest Villa. Was very happy being upgraded from a room to one of the cottages at no additional cost, as my wife joined me at the last minute. Breakfasts are really good with some interesting hot breakfast selections. Management and staff very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They did two restaurant bookings for us which was much appreciated.

This was my first stay at Harfields. The accommodation, food and location are excellent. Graham and Christel were friendly, helpful and hospitable. Everything I needed was in the room. I will recommend Harfields to anybody considering staying in Cape Town.

Room Tip: The Classic Attic room is not 100% suitable for tall people and doesn't have a separate shower...

I have a unique perspective on Harfield Guest Villa because my wife and I were the first guests. Since I was doing work in Cape Town, I also stayed there by myself for an extended period of time so I've seen it grow over the years.

Graham and Jenni are excellent hosts and the other staff are also knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. This time we didn't have on our own car and Graham arrange for transport and just added it all into the final bill. Both are athletic and enjoy the outdoors so they can recommend trails and hikes.

There's a buffet for cold breakfast and you can order eggs as you want. All excellent. You can look out at Table Mountain from the dining room.

I like that it is in a regular neighborhood with a wide variety of very good restaurants and an easy walk one block over to Second St. Some have early specials at a discount. Good to take advantage of this as they fill up around 8:00 pm (20:00 hrs.) Have never had a bad meal at any of them.

Rooms are spotless, attractive with little touches like an ivy leaf or flower placed on the bed.

You feel well cared for by Graham, Jenni and the staff.
I prefer to stay in small privately owned places like this and it's the best.

Room Tip: They are all good and quiet.

I spent 3 months at Harfield in one of the lovely cottages and it really was a home from home. Working away for a long time I couldn't have wished for anything nicer- Graham and Crystal along with all the other staff were brilliant and couldn't have done anything more for us, constantly going out of their way to take care of us and ensuring we were comfortable.

Great location, stunning views and surrounded by lovely places to eat and drink as well. Rooms were great, and it really was the little things that made all the difference- hot water bottles on cold evenings, a fresh warm crossiant to take away ready prepared when rushing to work in the morning!
I highly recommend Harfield, everything was exemplary, from the staff to the accomadation and location.

Took my wife there as a little break for our anniversary and were treated like a king and queen. The room was very comfortable, the shower refreshing and the bath romantic. Also the breakfast was great.

I stayed at Harfield for 3 nights in May. Graham and his staff were fantastic. On one particularly cold evening when I returned from dinner the heater was turned on in my room and a hot water bottle in my bed! Talk about great service. The accomodation is beautiful and my room had a great view of the mountains. My room was very comfortable and clean with everything you could want. I'd certainly recommend Harfield and would stay there again myself.
