Harfield Guest Villa
Ranked #1 of 10 Claremont B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 January 2011

Graham and his staff go out of their way to make your stay exactly how you want it to be. Great rooms, great food -breakfast or dinner - excellent and free wifi -large hotels take note - for the business traveller it makes an excellent change from the standard and homogenised 5* hotels. And I did not feel that i was lacking any faciities (business centre -see Graham, on the hoof car repairs -see Graham etc etc). Nice area as well -some good bars and restuarants nearby and handy for the bays south of CT. Spectacular views of Table Mountain and complimentary sherry. Highly recommended for business or pleasure.

I am almost reluctant to review Harfield Guest Villa, as it might contribute to them being fully booked when we want to make a reservation at short notice. Graham and his team pull out all the stops and we felt most welcome and were able to relax and get on with our business. The staff are friendly and helpful and know the area well. Graham pointed me at the best local restaurants and hardware store and even lent me his tools. Brilliant breakfast with the morning paper, wi-fi internet worked a treat, everything you'd want from a B&B. They definitely earn their four stars. Highly recommended.

One of the best guesthouses I have ever stayed in. Run professionally, but not impersonally. All the services you would require for business, and on holiday. The breakfasts are really ‘yummy’.

Only able to spend 2 days in Cape Town, but wanted to stay for a week. The folks at Harfield Villa were a big part of that desire. They went out of their way at every turn to make our stay as easy and pleasurable as possible. The breakfast was excellent and more than adequate, the only problem was we had to leave the table for our tours. Suites were well appointed with comfortable beds and nightly hot water bottles. We will definitely return to stay longer.

Before I stayed at this B&B, little information was available apart from what was given from the B&B's own website. Right now I am in the position to tell other travellers what was it like staying here.

This small but cozy B&B is located in the quiet, upmarket and safe suburb of Claremont, East of Table Mountain. Only 20 km away from Cape Town International Airport, or about half-hour drive.

Initially I booked a Classic Attic Room, but got an upgrad to Classic View room with good views of Table Mountain slopes ( the room is located on the second floor). The Classic View Room was large, cozy and beautifully decorated . The bathroom features a nice Victorian free-standing bathtub which I did not get a chance to use.

Graham, the B&B owners cooked sumptuous breakfast for us and was very friendly. He gave good travel advice and even printed out a detailed map after I asked him for driving direction from Cape Town to Hermanus.

Dinner here can also be prepared prior to your arrival. I had a good and very filling dinner and really love the african malva pudding.

This B&B is quite compact but cosy and Graham and his staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely recommend this B&B to others as an alternative place to stay in a safe neigbourhood and not too far from airport.
