4 On Varneys
Ranked #33 of 156 Cape Town B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2013

On our first trip to Cape Town (in April), we couldn't have been luckier. Here's what we loved about 4 on Varneys: the hosts, Thierry and Philip, were amazing, giving us great tips for dining (everywhere we went that was recommended by them was indeed outstanding!), places to see, wineries to stop at when we went to the wine country... The room was great, I really liked the modern twist to a Victorian house, and the location is very convenient, the B&B is walking distance to the waterfront, and had really nice restaurants and cafes right around the corner. Breakfast was delicious.
The hosts really make you feel at home. We arrived late and had no problem checking in, and when packing to leave, I forgot my jeans and they called to tell me they found my jeans when cleaning the room, so I returned and picked them up. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Cape Town.

We loved our stay at 4 on Varneys! It is a really cute and comfortable guesthouse set in an old Victorian home refurbished with a modern feel. We felt safe there and it also has a brilliant central location. Phillip and Theirry were such lovely hosts - breakfast was such a treat with them! They gave us great recommendations on restaurants and wineries. We'd definitely stay there when back in CPT.
p.s. We liked the small touches such as the drinks fridge and honesty box.

My wife and I have been in this hostel and we feel at home! The people are super friendly, very caring and concerned about guests. The location is very good near the watefront and breakfast is delicious. We can only thank you for an inn known as good, beautiful, comfortable and sexy. We recommend it.

I stayed at 4 On Varneys two weeks ago. Philip the owner could not have been more attentive, he is friendly and helpful and offers everything you could want. Varneys is in a very safe area, walkable to the Water Front and town centre and within a cheap taxi distance. Number 4 is a very attractive property. Our room was very stylishly decorated with all the usual amenities. Breakfast consisted of delicious French croissants home baked each morning and fruits, yoghurts, cheese and meats, all lovely high quality. The other staff we encountered, Zexy and Brian were also very helpful and friendly and a credit to the establishment. I cannot give enough praise to 4 on Varneys and if you have found this review do do DO stay there!

First impressions usually say a lot for me when arriving at a hotel. When my wife and I arrived at 4 on Varney's late at night, dead tired, we were warmly greeted by guy named Zexy (the Guest House care taker when the owners aren't in). He was smiling and welcoming, gave us a quick tour of the place, and showed us to our wonderful room. The upstairs honour bar where you can get a bottle of wine and pay upon checkout is a nice touch.

Planned to stay in Cape Town 2 nights, ended up staying 6, partly because the Guest House was so comfortable..

Nice Guest House. Our room, right by main entrance, was very spacious (even had a couch) and spotlessly clean. Very good value for the money. And an easy 15 minute walk to Waterfront.

The owners, two nice gay guys, every morning come and pour coffee, tea and juice and offer up advice and travel tips. Friendly fellows.

Would certainly stay at 4 on Varney's again.

Only very minor warning is that the walls are thin, so there is sometimes noise from neighboring rooms. But that is minor complaint. Only the first night was I awoke by people. Every other night no problems.

Overall, an excellent place I would go to again when in Cape Town.

The owners have done a nice job with the place.

Our party of 7 enjoyed two nights at Varneys on our Cape Town stopover. Everybody was extremely happy with the stay and service whilst their. The rooms are spacious and clean with attention to detail being a high priority. Our hosts were informative and helpful with any needs we had met. Considering the low price of the accommodation none of us were expecting such a lovely place and would have no hesitation in staying there again or recommending this place to friends ad family.

A very pelasent guesthouse to stay in.
The position is good for both the city centre and the cape peninsula.
The house and the rooms are beautifully decorated and come with a full range of services: comfortable sitting room with TV and computer for guests, free wi-fi, private secure parking.
Breakfast is of good quality and with enough variety of food.
Owners are very nice and will provide a lot of suggestions on how to spend your time in the area.
