“Very Nice”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a real jewel. I loved the decor, breakfast was made to order, everyone was very helpful and friendly. It is up on the hill a little ways, but is easy to get to and has great access to Table Mountain. I hope I can return to Cape Town some day and I will stay here if I do. Thank you Ayanda for your wonderful smile.

I feel it would be beneficial if the guests had Wi-Fi access. Other wise the hotel was awesome. The staff were very helpful and always went above and beyond to keep us happy. Thank you for everything!

Our stay at Trevoyan was a lovely experience. The BnB is extremely cosy, warm and welcoming with a lovely view of table mountain. The owners and everyone else on the property were all very kind and thoughtful and made our stay here very comfortable. The location is great being only a very short walk to Long Street and a short cab ride to the V n A Waterfront. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Cape Town.

This guesthouse was recommended by our tour operator, Imagine Africa, For us it was perfect, ideally situated just on the edge of the city in an area which has lots of good restaurants within an easy and safe walk. The owners and staff were all welcoming and our room (number 3) was roomy and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent. This was our first visit to South Africa and we will return to the Trevoyan when in Cape Town again.

Eddie and Dominique were very friendly and welcoming. It's was a really lovely guest house, but it was windy when we were there and there was a lot of banging and creaking in the night. (Not that the wind could be attributed to the accommodation)

Lovely location in Tampoerskloof, but be aware there is no parking except in the surrounding streets

Room Tip: Try to avoid room 3. It's quite small and next to the dining room. Therefore, you can be disturb...

Dear Alison,

we are so sorry to hear that the wind bothered you during the night. We will check all windows and doors again and hope that we can reduce the noice of the wind as much as possible for your next stay with us.

Your room tip is much appreciated. But I would like to take the liberty to add the comment of one of our guests who was also in room 3 just a few days later: „The owners and staff were all welcoming and our room (number 3) was roomy and comfortable.“ (Review 08MAY 14)

All the best and hope to see you soon again.

Trevoyan is indeed, as many have said, a comfortable place, in a very good location in Cape Town. Despite of a mistake from booking.com, they were able to accommodate us in the bedroom type we chose and we had a pleasant and relaxing time. The breakfast is really good, the room very cozy and quiet, location good and the common areas inviting. Wifi worked ok, very nice tips from the owners, nice people around. Will stay there next time in Cape Town for sure.

A good located guesthouse with outside parking (street) for discovering cape town. Nice and informative hosts, good breakfast (fruits, fresh baked bread, different kinds of cheese and jam, all kinds of eggs to order), friendly staff. Our rooms (big sleeping room, separated bathroom, seperated toilette) was very clean and not too hot during our stay. We enjoyed the four days at this elegant and very well decorated guesthouse not far away from the center of cape town, sitting and relaxing in the shadow of an old oaktree in the garden with table mountain view. For us was it a good address for staying in cape town the next time.
Thanks to Dominique, Eddy and Frida (little nice dog).
