“Cape Riviera Review”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

The service was great. I had asked for several specific things to be organised which is not normally included in the stay and this was kindly carried for me by the staff.
The location of this venue was perfect and the amenities were everything that we required. The venue was also very close to well known and popular restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Very convenient position for the CBD. Breakfast is decent (and comprehensive). Staff are friendly and helpful. There is a Virgin Active gym nearby. Slight negatives: parking on the street, no safe in my room, no food options in easy walking distance.

I had a wonderful room with a view to the mountain at the back and the harbour in front.
I love the statues in the front of the house and at the pool. The contemporary feel in the lovingly the cared for old house makes a profound statement.
The staff is friendly and attentive without seeming so in an overwhelming way.
I loved staying here and will be back...

Friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful. Would definitely stay there again and recommend others to stay there. Great views of Table Mountain. Location was an easy walk to Kloof street with bars and restaurants.

As a lover of all things art-deco I was more than captivated by the beautiful surroundings that comprise this fantastic Cape Town bed and breakfast. Situated on a hillside overlooking the city the property is still within walking district of shopping and dining.

For me, however, I cannot, compliment enough the kind and courteous attention of the staff for assisting me during my stay. They certainly went above and beyond my expectations and as a solo traveler needing a bit of encouragement to get out and see the sites I cannot thank them enough. Well done!!!!

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.
