“The perfect base camp for an excellent stay in Cape Town!”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We stayed at Bergzicht Guesthouse for two weeks in March 2013. The Guesthouse has an ever smiling staff, marvellous view of Table Mountain, many good nearby restaurants and walking distance to the city centre. In the end we had to leave since our time in South Africa was up. If you have a car, try to reserve a space in the garage. Our car was broken into one night when parked outside.

Stayed here for two nights recently for a business trip. Room was clean, bed was fine but the duvet was too small. Bathroom was very small. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and they even made it 30 mins earlier for us due to us having to leave for meetings earlier. Try and book a space in the parking lot as we had to park in the street and our rental car was broken into. Don't book the room closest to the street as the noise is quite bad. Very helpful and friendly manager.

Room Tip: Rooms on the mountain's side are quieter.

We stayed at the Bergzight Guesthouse as a treat on Valentines Day, even though we live just a few kilometres away. We had a beautiful, quiet room with an amazing view of the city and Table Mountain. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful and we were proud to be Capetownians and have such wonderful people representing our city. Well done on creating a happy environment for tourists and locals alike. Oh, and the breakfast was delicious!! :)

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bergzicht- all of 5 nights. We stayed there from 29 November till 4 December 2012.
FIrstly, the property is superbly located- only 5 minutes by car from the city centre and 10 minutes from the V&A waterfront. The bungalow is situated on a hilltop with a fabulous view to boot of Table Mountain, in a safe residential area. You may park your rental car in their garage at night.
The owners, Cecilia and Finn were warm and helpful, and gave us great tips for our tour of Stellenbosch and Constantia wine farms. Our travel agency was not able to book a room with a king sized bed due to unavailability (we booked our trip quite last minute) but when such a room became available, they made sure we got it- thanks guys!
The staff are exemplary and the rooms wonderful, especially the honeymoon suite- what a view of Table Mountain! Breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit, a buffet and warm breakfast to order- yum.
We highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is great.

Stayed one night before returning home. They was very accommodating with our luggage as we had been to Stellenbosch for the day. Steps to upper level can be a bit tough for some people. They get an A+ for the radio tuned to a classical music station and F for the TV selection. Great view on Table mountain

It is an old house with a beautiful position situated just in front of the bay. Rooms are large, beds are really comfortable. Rates include breakfast, which is served in a beautiful room by kind people. The girl at the desk is kind and helpful. She booked a capetown history tour which was really excellent. The also have a small private car parking.

Room Tip: Prefer rooms in the main building

We stayed at Bergzicht for 3 nights and just loved it! The guesthouse has a lovely view over the Table Mountains and Cape Town being our first stop in South Africa we just couldn't stop admiring it! The staff is really wonderful and everybody was extremely helpful; the super nice Norwegian owners Finn and Cecilie, not to forget Katherine and Caity. They were never too busy to help you with advice on tourist attractions, booking a cab, printing tickets to Robben Island, giving us tips of sightseeing in the region etc.Cecilie even handwrote us a whole A4 note of what to see and do on the Cape of Good Hope with very useful tips on sights, where to stop for lunch, nice restaurants, and other things that only a local would know about.
Breakfast was very nice, and the beds extremely comfortable. Room a bit small, but cosy and functional. Within walking distance to Long Street. Free internet access in reception.
