“Excellent stay, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

We stayed one night in this lovely guesthouse. The hosts were very welcoming with a glass of bubbly and the fire was on on the cold Cape Town night in June. The rooms are well appointed with good beds and spacious shower. Breakfast was very good too with a variety of cold cuts, fresh fruit and Bram prepared some scrambled eggs and trout as well. Would have loved to stay a bit longer. Next time..

We stayed at the African Queen for three nights. We had a beautiful room and the hospitality wa amazing. Lovely breakfast and Margaux and Bram did everything they could to help us organise everything we needed. Truly a wonderful place under excellent management! Would always recommend it to friends! Just wish we had stayed longer! Thank you for an amazing time!

Don't make a mistake and stay anywhere else! We loved our stay at the African Queen - we stayed at many guesthouses in South Africa, and the African Queen was truly great. Our only regret is that we didn't stay with them longer. EXCELLENT!

I was very happy with my stay at African Queen. There was a service bar available in the room, just in case you feel peckish. The location is superb.

I felt the only thing missing from the rooms were a decent aircon and tv.

The hosts were very accommodating with a late booking, late arrival and packed lunches for on the road travel.

When out in the southern suburbs again, I will definitely use them.

My wife and I stayed at the African Queen only for 1 night and we really wished we could have stayed for more. Bram and Margaux were the perfect hosts being warm and friendly. The room was clean, tidy and comfy with a great bathroom and even better shower. The outside area has a pool which unfortunately due to the weather we did not have a chance to enjoy, however a massive bonus is that they have a donkey...yes a donkey...which was friendly and happy to be fed. The breakfast was freshly made and tasted delicious. We would have absolutely no problem in reccomending a stay at the African Queen.

We stayed for 3 nights at the African Queen when we were in South Africa for a family wedding. We chose it initially due to its proximity to the wedding venue, and we certainly made the right choice! Bram & Margeaux are helpful, hospitable and superb hosts. We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was beautiful with an enormous luxury bathroom. Breakfasts were freshly cooked and delicious. Fantastic garden area and pool to relax in.We would not hesitate to return or to recommend it to friends and family.
