Reviewed 13 July 2010

This Guesthouse is situated in the perfect area just a short walk from restaurants or a 5 minute drive to Camps Bay. It literally is in the middle of everywhere u want to get to or be it’s a 20 minute walk to the waterfront!! Breakfast is lovely the atmosphere is lovely and the people are warm. Joe gives great advice and has plenty of maps to send you where you need to go. I will definitely go back again!!

This was my 2nd stay at Mountview spa and was just as impressed as the first time. Joe, the owner, is so helpful, once again he helped to make sure we got the most out of our trip. The guesthouse itself is perfectly located and beautifully decorated, and the pool and jacuzzi outside are divine to relax when u taking some time out from sight seeing. Will definately be heading back to Cape town again and definately back to Mountview spa!

This was my 2nd trip ( unplanned this time and they turn out the best!!) to this little piece of paradise, and again it was great in every way!! Great weather, hosts, breakfast, private, lovely pool area and it was all just spot on! Cape town has it all and is one of those magical places to visit time and time again, and the World Cup is going to be mad and the best event to show the rest of world what South Africa is capable of!! Good luck you guys and hope the guesthouse does well!!

I stayed at this guesthouse in the middle of the December madness that happens in Cape Town and I loved it. great personal attention from the owners, sparkling clean rooms and a location that is close to all the action without being in the middle of it. easy to get around - to CT city centre, Camps bay etc etc. Amazing decor, lovely clean pool and jacuzzi - I didnt want to leave! I would wholeheartedly recommend this gueshouse to couples, solo travellers, business travellers.

We were extremely happy with our 3 nights in South Africa here. The location is perfect for day trips and restaurants are just a couple blocks away. We felt very safe here. Joe was the perfect host, answering all our questions and even calling ahead and booking outings for us. We loved Beaumont the dog, as well. Breakfasts were some of the best we had on our trip.

We are pleased to recommend tje Guest House - thanks to service minded Marius and Joe and also Beaumont (the weimaraner dog)! Overall the athmosphere of the accommodation was cozy.

The location is great with easy access to restaurants of Main Rd, to Beach and even by walking to Waterfront.

We do understand some people may feel it somehow incovinient to have a shower and a toilet at the same open room. For the price this accommodation is still a great value and we´d definately like to be back to Cape town and Mountview Spa & Guesthouse.

Reviewed 18 January 2010

just returned from my second stay at Mountview this year and will be returning end of Dec/Jan 2010.

very clean guesthouse, secure, fantastic pool, excellent decor and two wonderful hosts who are more than helpful. (In fact they are even organising payment of a parking ticket I got!)

Excellent location, central yet away from the noise/bustle of the Waterfront or Camps Bay.

Personally I don’t think it is a massive problem that some of the rooms have an open plan bathroom although I believe the remaining rooms are all being redesigned this year anyway. In the meantime, for the shyer ones (or those sharing with their Granny), you can always take a book and relax for half hour by the pool or on the big leather couch..................
