“Our home in Cape Town”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

It has been our 7th visit to the Cape Riviera and we are already looking forward to coming again. As soon as we enter the house, it's just like being at home. We really like the relaxing atmosphere in the beautiful house in Oranjezicht with the view to Table Mountain and the city bowl. For us, spacious room no. 12 in the new building is our favourite room though also room no. 1 in the main house with its view to the city and Signal Hill is just magnificient. It's always nice to meet Owen, the owner, again and to be looked after by Michél who is managing the guest house.

The Guest house is excellent, very comfortable and in a very nice locality. The lounge is very elegant with good magazines to read. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great.
The only areas where the facilities differed from what was indicated on the website was a private and secure parking (we did mange to get one finally) and massage facility which was indicated but not there. Also, it would help if along with washing, the facility of ironing of clothes is also available for the guests. The overall experience was enjoyable and memorable.

We spent a night here on our way back home from the Antarctica. It was such a great way to return back to the "real world". The whole house is comfortable and the staff really makes you feel welcome. Highly recommended by all of us!

Beautifully renovated art deco house with a sympathetically designed extension at the back. Very comfortable rooms and charming staff, I've stayed a number of times on business and holiday and will certainly return.

The service was really good and the personnel always ready to help.
The rooms were cleans and the ambience calm.
The breakfast was full of options and you can enjoy the "A la carte breakfast"
Good value of money.

All was good thanks - apart from the weather which was very wet and cold. Eric was at his usual best with the welcoming which was quite late in the evening. The option of decaf coffee sachets in the room would have been good.

I have now stayed here a few times because of the very home like atmosphere and friendly staff. The rooms are spacious with stunning view of the mountain. Owen the owner takes pride in his B & B and always oversees that his guest are comfortable. Highly recommended accommodation.
Great value for money.
