“Perfect to stay in Cape Town”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

Eagle's Nest Guest House is the perfect choice for a longer stay in Cape Town. It is located directly at the bottom of Table Mountain and thus offers a terrific view to the mountain on one side and to the city center and the waterfront on the other side. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The breakfast is very good (you get every kind of freshly made egg!) except for the coffee :-) The area is safe and quite. I did not give the full credit because the bathrooms definitely need to be refurbished sooner or later.

We had an extremely pleasant stay in this hotel during our visit to South Africa.
Before our arrival we corresponded with Axel and Judhai and they were extremely helpful and even did shopping on our behalf which was waiting for us on arrival in our very pleasant Fish Eagle Suite.
We were collected late at night at the airport by Axel and Judhai who made sure that we were happily delvered to our suite - and with the South African power cuts at that time - made sure we had plenty of candles and a torch.
The Fish Eaglke Suite might be a little tired but is still spacious and a real delight and with the most spectacular views. We had our own private entrance to our fenced garden with terrace and barbeque and felt absolutely safe.
This was very much a pleasant residential area rather than a busy town centre and there vwas one very good reasonably priced restaurant (with huge portions) 10 minutes walk away.

An aboslute treasure was Tina who appeared to have 100 arms. She cooked the hot breakfast, cleaned the dining room and bedrooms, dealt with all enquiries and requests and provided the best laundry/ironing service imaginable.
We enjoyed the fruit and cereals at breakfast but the cold meats appeared to be processed and the cheese choice was limited.

It is a little far from Cape Town set on the slopes of Table Mountain but you do have the most spectacular views. There is a mini bus service (5 ramd each way) which is rather erratic. If you have a hire car then the distance from town is not a problem but if you use taxi it can be expensive and we had charges ranging from 60Rand to 90Rand for the same journey.
We lovedthe small swimming pool and the lush gardens which gave a real "tropical" feel-

  • Liked — The wonderful views
  • Disliked — The high winds experienced on the slopes of Table mountain
