Loved staying in Bantry Bay guesthouse. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was great, and Ed was really friendly and accomodating. We will definitely come back on our next trip to Cape Town.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled as a couple

This guesthouse is in a wonderful location, Ed was fantastic and gave me some trustworthy local knowledge to help me with my arrangements. The guesthouse is clean and I do not think you can find better value for money. You will experience a friendly welcome. Be prepared to relax in a quiet home by the sea! There are great transport links to the city too.

Like a home away from home - nice, quiet neighborhood, cute rooms, sunny patio, & well-equipped common areas. The best part is Ed though. He is super helpful and will do whatever he can to make your stay enjoyable. So glad this was the first place we stayed in SA!

Arriving at Bantry Bay guesthouse was a little like arriving home. Ed is a welcoming and charming host that immediately makes his guests feels at home. This pace is spotlessly clean and the interior done with great taste and charm. I loved my stay here and it's a quiet quest house where you get away from the city noise but yet you are within walking distance from everything. The best about this guest house is that its a completely Smoking Free House!!! Bravo!

I have to say it was one of the best mattresses I have slept on in years. Outside the back yard is cost to sit and have a coffee in the morning. Bantry Bay Guests house is absolute great value for money and It's a place I would return to again and again! Thank you Ed and I’ll be back! Len

I keep returning to Alan and Ed's lovely guesthouse every year since 2007! It is perfectly located in Cape Town's safest and most scenic neighborhood. It is simple but comfortable,impeccably maintained,and probably the best value in town! From there,public transport takes you everywhere you need to go,and you can walk down to Sea Point where shops,supermarkets,restaurants and banks cater to all your material needs.
Finally it is peacefull,friendly and created for people with relaxation in mind.The hosts will help you make the most of your holiday,leaving you alone when you want it,or giving you advice should you require it. Highly recommended to quiet singles and couples of all ages and nationalities :-)

My wife and i live in Beijing-what we wanted was a quiet;clean area and at Bantry Bay this is exactly what we got! Bus routes to town and the Waterfront are nearby-as well as a beautiful coastline for walking.
Ed made us feel very welcome and went out of his way to help us when we needed information-(such as a Shuttle Bus recommendation and where to find things!)he also lives at the property;which always was spotlessly clean!Often we used the cosy and homely kitchen to eat our meals where we had use of the fridge and microwave.
We also loved the little enclosed patio with the cactus plants! We stayed in the outside room with en-suite shower facilities.It was cosy;like having our own little den for ten days!
The shops are only a few minutes' walk down the hill;and the tour bus pick up point is also nearby.Walking to the popular Clifton beaches from the guesthouse made for great walking trips.
Ed even offered to wash our clothes for us;and use of the Internet was great!
The only minor problem we had was with the water pressure in the shower;which Ed identified and sorted it out straight away.We will definitely be back to stay when we return to Cape Town again!

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in a safe neighborhood that is conveniently located, this guesthouse is ideal. Not only is it a close walk to local shops and public transportation, it's very easy to navigate around town from Bantry Bay, which is a quick shot to the V & A Waterfront and the President's Hotel stop on the hop-on/hop-off Red Bus Tour.

The house itself is charming and beautifully furnished and decorated, all of it by hand with a nice personal touch. Ed is super friendly, helpful, and always obliging.

Thanks for a lovely stay!! I would definitely stay here again.
