We had an excellent week at Valley heights B&B. Very friendly and welcoming staff, we felt at home. The breakfast was truly amazing and well prepared according to our needs.
Bed was very comfortable, nice kitchenette and bathroom.
We also want to recommend Bruce as a tour guide, we had a very nice trip to Cape point.
Thank you!

Bruce and Jeanie couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during our stay. They even managed to find a baby bath for my nine-month old granddaughter. Breakfast was beautifully presented and prepared and the rooms were very comfortable and had everything you needed. So much nicer than staying in an impersonal hotel.

For anyone worried about safety in South Africa, Kenilworth is a lovely leafy suburb and easily accessible by cab (which are incredibly cheap) to all major attractions and beaches.

Thank you both for a great stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the blue and yellow rooms which are private and accommodated our family perfectly. The...

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.!
