“The friendly guesthouse in Cape Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2011

Bergzicht Guesthouse is situated in the hills of Tamboerskloof and has a fantastic view towards Table Mountain. I travelled along with my wife and two friends and we stayed for 8 nights. Walking distance to Long Street is about 12 minutes, and about 20-25 minutes to Waterfront. The staff is very friendly and was taking very good care of us. If we needed a taxi or a restaurant table, they were able to arrange it on short notice. The breakfast (included) was very good. I,ll be back the next time I visit CT.

Beautiful place w amazing views of the Table Mountain and a very helpful staff. Even One of the bathrooms had a view of the table mountain! We had just one day and Christine from the staff came up with amazing recos on restaurants as well as things to do. The small pool is great for families with children of all ages.

Beautiful location at the top of Tamboerskloof. Katherine made us feel right at home. The close proximity to all destinations and the Cape town stadium for the soccer was fantastic.

We spent the first night of our 19 day trip at the Bergzicht. Rooms were comfortable, although as mentioned in previous review the bathrooms were small compared to other guesthouses we have stayed in. The manager was very helpful, although not all advice given was accurate. For example he advised us that the best horse racing course in Cape Town is Royal Ascot, but we later discovered this closed down some time ago. The garden and views alone are worth a visit, but the real higlhight was Catherine, a member of staff, who was an absolute delight.

I stayed at Bergzicht guest house for 4 and 3 nights respectively the beginning and end of my trip to South Africa in November/December 2009. The guest house is located in Tamboerskool in the City Bowl suburbs. It is generally well located; there are a good range of restaurants within walking distance. Some of the sites are within walking distance though a car is an essential requirement when travelling around South Africa. Bergzicht provides a good base to see the various sites in and around Cape Town for example the cable care to Table Mountain is only a short drive away. The room was generally well set out though the bathroom was rather small. The grounds are really nice and having a swim and viewing the backdrop of Table Mountain after a days sight seeing was a great way of ending a day. The best feature of the Bergzicht is the personal touch provided by owners and staff. Nothing was too much trouble; they provided reliable advice and guidance, sorted out bookings or simple talk over a cup of tea. I was particularly thankful for all the help and support they provided me and my wife when I became unwell. A great place to stay.
