Thank you for your positive review and your nice words. Happy guests are the foundation of our lovely guesthouse and we hope that we will be able to make you happy again in the near future.

This was our second stay there. We knew things had changed, we knew the previous owners had sold, and in such cases one is always sceptical at first. We needn't be! The new owners have brought Trevoyan to yet another level, with all the rooms completely and tastefully redecorated. It has now this cosiness, this warmth, this "olde worlde" kind of charm it did not have the first time round, with terracotta colours, rugged carpets, wooden flooring, even the pool is nicer now with its wooden deck! Some of the personnel is still there, and each one of them is as friendly as ever. As for the new owners, we only had the chance to speak with Dominique (and her cute little dog :0) ) and she is really friendly and helpful. Breakfast is as great as it ever was, with lots of home-made stuff. We will gladly go back.
Herzliche Gruesse nach Zürich
und vielen Dank fuer das Kompliment, dass wir das Trevoyan nach unserer Uebernahme auf ein neues Niveau gebracht haben. Wir haben all unser Herzblut in die Renovierung eingebracht und wuenschen uns noch viele wiederkehrende Gaeste, die aehnlich wir ihr vom neuen Trevoyan begeistert sind. Wir sehen uns dann hoffentlich bald beim dritten Mal im Trevoyan Guesthouse.
Eure Dominique, Eddie & Frida.
Trevoyant Guest House is a nice place to stay in Cape Town: quiet, but only 10 minutes walk from Long Street. It has been recently renovated. The rooms are spacious and well equiped. Garden and pool are well kept and invite to relax.
vielen Dank für Eure netten Worte über unser schönes Trevoyan Guesthouse. Es hat Euch bei uns gefallen und das ist das Wichtigste. Kommt bald wieder und lasst es Euch gut gehen.
Eddie, Dom & Frida
We really had a bad stay: (1) breakfast starts only at 08:00, we asked for earlier and was declined on the spot, (2) only 3 TV channels, (3) for what you get it is way too expensive compared to a City Lodge, (4) language is a huge issue, helpers does not speak and understand English properly, (5) had a bad incident re payment - no-one available to take payment the day of departure at 07:00, we told the helper we will pay upon receipt of the invoices yet the owner phoned us and threatened us with the police - unacceptable?? -
Good day Johan,
We are very sorry to read that you had a bad stay with us.
Your first complaint is about our breakfast times and it is right that our regular breakfast time is between 08:00 and 10:00. If guests leave our guesthouse before 08:00 and let us know the day before, we are always happy to prepare a breakfast bag to go, with sandwiches, fruits and juice.
Our satellite TV system provides SABC 1, 2, 3 and eTV - a DSTV printed program is in each room. We will gladly assist with providing overseas news channels, movie channels or sports channels. Please contact our staff and note, that you cannot get channels by retuning the TV set in your room.
We do not have helpers but great South African Xhosas who work for the Trevoyan Guesthouse since many years. They all are at least bi-lingual and speak good English. We are very proud of them and are happy to have them in our team.
Early check out is not a problem at all in our guesthouse but you should let us know the day before because we are a guesthouse and not a hotel and therefore we do not have a reception which is occupied 24 hours a day.
We wish you all the best for the future
Eddie & Dominique
We stayed thre only one night. But we wished we could have stayed there any longer. A beautiful, place near to the city. The rooms are well designed. The breakfast was delicious. Very friendly and nice athmosphere.
some times wishes come true and we hope to see you soon again for a few more nights in our beautiful Trevoyan Guesthouse.
All the best
Dominique, Eddie & Frida
Lovely guesthouse with table mountain view and nicely decorated rooms, but our room was small and right next to the breakfast area and had the window where everyone passed by. If you go there make sure to book one of the superior rooms, although it might be quite expensive compared it other beautiful guesthouses in the same area.
What a pity that you where not satisfied with the size of your room. We feel very sorry about this but next time please talk to us while you are with us and we can check together if there is a solution for your unhappiness. Other guests (Review 08MAY2014) have described the same room as roomy and comfortable.
We do regularly a rate comparison with our competitors and we are absolutely sure that we do deliver great value for money. Our rates and the rates of other guesthouses in our area are available online and can be compared from everybody before he or she does the final booking.
Best regards from Eddie & Dominique
