“Great atmosphere, safe and clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

I stayed at Mountview for 6 nights and my experience was very positive. Joe sat down with me for 30 minutes on the first day and explained about the tours, local stores, safety and all other questions I had about Cape Town. The hotel was kept clean at all times and I had no safety troubles as a single female traveller. Also the location of Mountview was quiet and safe but also convenient enough to reach the local stores by foot and had a good access to local transportation. Sea Point neighborhood has a great view of mountains and the ocean breath is just a 5 minutes walk away. I highly recommend Mountview for Cape Town travelers :))

We stayed here in early November and had a great time. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The place has a very welcoming atmosphere. Joe was a great source of information and knowledge. Our room was a good size and the bathroom very modern and clean. The breakfasts were tasty and wholesome. We used the pool and the jacuzzi which were an added bonus. Seapoint is a great place to base yourself especially now with the new buses from just next door to the guest house into the city and the waterfront. We would stay here again and would recommend it to other travellers.

We had a nice time at this place. The only thing that I found challenging was the bathroom - its small and built into a corner of the bedroom and the partition is not a real door, it doesn't go from floor to ceiling. So forget about having any privacy! The sink is also outside this area, basically its right next to the bed. Its not bad, but just be aware of this in advance if you are there for a romantic holiday. :-) Other than that it was fine. Easy walk to the beach. Airport pick up arrangement via a local taxi worked well. Lots of restaurants in the area.

We are surprised that nothing was mentioned to management about the room. There were other rooms available with completely separate bathrooms. The bathroom in this particular room is totally enclosed in frosted glass from the floor to ceiling giving it a modern look. The door is real but it is made of glass.

My friend and I stayed at this guesthouse from 13/09-21/09. The house itself is gorgeous and kept in absolutely impeccable condition. It has a beautiful pool and jacuzzi out front (unfortunately it was too cold for us to use it but would have loved to) and a sauna in the back. Very well decorated and has every amenity is available including a safe and mini-bar. Breakfast was wonderful and tailored to our wants. The location was great, about 15 minutes walking from downtown Cape Town, and 3 blocks from the beach. The neighborhood is very safe and has restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance. And best of all, the owners Joe and Marius were absolutely amazing. They made reservations for us when we needed them, they would stop by breakfast every morning and ask us if we needed anything and tell us about the weather. Extremely polite, accommodating, and overall one of the best experiences I have ever had. Would definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone traveling to Cape Town!

This was my second business trip to Cape Town. The last visit I stayed in the city and this time in Sea Point. The location was good and central to what I had to do. The staff at Mountview were charming. The place was spotless and the breakfasts were more than I expected. I can thoroughly recommend Mountview. The weather was not warm enough to enjoy the swimming pool or the jacuzzi so maybe next time.

After reviewing several places we opted for Mountview. We were definitely happy with our selection. Mountview was perfectly located as we had our own vehicle. It was relatively easy to get to all the sites. It was a 5 minute drive to town and Camps Bay. On our arrival the owner gave us a map and showed us where all the relevant places were which was a great help.

We really had such a splendid time in Cape Town and at Mountview that we extended our stay.The place is very well decorated and clean.We were a couple and would recommend it to other couples.

Room Tip: We had the room with the king size bed

Recommended by friends and not dissappointed. the host was great and helpful.We found that we were centrally located.The road was busy but we had no problem with that as the rooms were quiet. It was not far at all to walk to the main road with some good restaurants. All the restaurants that we went to were recommended by the host and they were great.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to look alike
