“If you book here, be ready to sleep in your car!!!”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

How do I say this? I booked this guest house while we were staying at Vineyard Hotel in Capetown. After a great 3 days at Vineyard we drove down to Nyaru near Mostle Bay. We returned to Capetown for our last night in South Africa. To our shock, the Rondebosch had given away our room to someone else. We were at awe when they told us that they had called us that morning and we told them that our flight was delayed !!! ... OK... We had our 6 months old baby and we had to struggle a lot to find a place as it was SA Vs Aust Test match day. After an hour's searching on my mobile (international roaming!!!) found Grande Klouf Boutique Hotel. Thankfully the place was amazing... I'll write a separate review about this boutique hotel. To end this review, I just want to say that we could have returned from Amazing SA with a sour taste if not for booking.com and trip adviser who guided us to the boutique hotel. Rondebosch, we were utterly disappointed with your lie and putting us in a very bad situation. Hope you change your attitude so that people traveling to this amazing country do not end up staying in their cars!!!

Stayed November 2011, travelled with family

I enjoyed my stay at Rondebosch Guest House... the rooms were clean.... the staff was lovely... but nothing stuck out as 'special' or 'extraordinary'. There were no little, extra finishing touches that could've made it a really memorable experience. I would recommend they think about adding some personal touches to the rooms and to the breakfast... to make their establishment stand out. Not a bad experience but nothing to write home about.

We knew we would be arriving in the Cape Town area quite late, and asked a local friend to find a reasonable B&B near the University of Cape Town. The friend wrote that he was shocked by the prices he was being quoted until he checked with the Rondebosch Guest house just W of Main Road off Klipper Rd. In fact we did arrive late, and our friend took us to the property, where we were warmly greated by Marley, the caretaker, in the dead of night. When we awoke the next day after a peaceful night;'s sleep, we observed just what a thoughtfully furnished room we had found, Marley made us a hot breakfast that hit the spot. It could be that they gave my friend better rates than they would someone for out of town, but even if they charged 25% more, it would still be a bargain. It would be the kind of place that you would find comfortable even for long stays.
