“A quite lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

I was down on business in Cape Town for 2 nights. Kidger House, Guest House, was well managed. The manageress was very efficient, thorough and friendly. Room was great. Comfortable, spacious and tastefully decorated. Breakfasts were lovely with hot and cold breakfast options.
Things to improve: A better tv channel selection and fewer keys. Every door and gate to get in and out of the house has a different key and finding the right one for the right door or gate was always tricky.

The room was quiet and comfortable. Everyday the room had been serviced but the really special part was the breakfast. A breakfast served personally in the dining room to your request makes the day start well. My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much.

Room Tip: If this fits into your budget it is a very comfortable place to stay.

We came over from Australia and stayed at Kidger House for approx.10 days. We found the rooms were quite spacious and clean, the king size beds were very comfortable! Situated in a very quite street and not far from shops and cafes, this suited us perfectly! Delia was a very accommodating and friendly hostess and cooked us breakfast every morning (perhaps the menu could have changed a little more over the 10 days) but over all it was a very pleasant experience and we have no hesitation in recommending Kidger House to anyone visiting the beautiful city of Cape Town. From P&J Petein Australia

Room Tip: Frangipani Suite is larger than Fountain Suite, both have nice bathrooms

A very nice place to stay at Cape Town. Kidger House is situated in a cul de sac. Very quiet. There are restaurants in the neighbourhood. For going to the airport or to Cape Town is very easy because the distance to the M3 is less than 1 km and to the N2 less than 3 km.

We stumbled across this guesthouse and found it absolutely delightful. Lovely location in quiet suburb of Cape Town and everything about it was great. Could not recommend it more highly. Lots of character, beautifully furnished and decorated, and a warm hostess.

Room Tip: All rooms seem lovely

This guest house is centrally located, just off a busy street in a surprisingly quiet location.
The room is well appointed with a big double shower. It has a big shady patio where breakfast is served, weather permitting.
The lovely pool provides lovely ambiance, even if not used.
The service is impeccable.
