Valley Heights guest house and our hosts(Bruce and Jeanie) were great and took really good care of us. Very comfortable living with a great breakfast and close to everything. We will certainly be back and i will recommend it to all. Thanks

We arrived late due to traffic accidents on route. The owner was up to let us in and made sure that we were comfortable even though it was close to midnight. the area was easy to get to with good directions. the rooms were spacious with everything needed for self catering. It was almost home from home. it was quiet and tranquil with very little traffic past the guest house. We will definitely recommend to others and when back in the Cape, we will definitely stay there again. Thanks

My wife and stayed at Valley Heights in the "Flat", which is a self contained unit at the bottom of the house. Private patio and garden, kitchenette, shower room, TV room and a bedroom with comfortable double bed.

Bruce is your host, and one couldn't ask for more attention to detail. Thanks Bruce!

We will most certainly stay here when we need accommodation in Cape Town next and would recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: The flat is lovely if you are going to stay a few nights as you can really settle in to your own spa...

Thanks to Bruce and Jeanie for their warm welcome, comfortable accommodation and great breakfasts. We had the Yellow and Blue suite which is ideal for families. This guest house is well positioned in Kenilworth and is easily accessible to main arterial roads. The only thing that Bruce and Jeanie did not lay on was decent weather which was Cape Town's worst in winter! But we were snug in our warmly heated rooms.!

My wife and I stay here whenever we visit family in Cape Town, most recently at very short notice following a family emergency. Apart from the great location and comfort, the friendliness shown by Bruce and Jeannie raise it well above the usual guesthouse. Our future "home" for all further CT visits.

Once again we had a wonderful holiday with Bruce and Jeanie as we were with them for about 2 weeks in total. It is always such a relaxing place and we feel part of the family! We love the garden and Alan loves the pool where he has reclaimed his record! Bruce and Jeanie are wonderful hosts efficient and always so welcoming and warm and nothing appears to be too much trouble for them. It is in a quiet area but near enough to the main attr actions. We can not wait to return!

Room Tip: We loved room overlooking the pool

Thanks for your kind remarks re Valley Heights Guest House. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Alan's swimming record still remains as no one else has managed to beat it as yet!
Hope to host you both again soon.
