Reviewed 25 January 2014

My wife and I have stayed at Centre-Ville in the middle of January in the Splendour Suite. Open plan which included a superior Jacuzzi bath and its own private decking. Exceptionally clean with coffee and tea facilities provided. The owners are always around with friendly chatter making sure all our needs are catered for. It is ideally situated just off the main street where there are numerous restaurants.
Choices at breakfast are superb and served by friendly staff. Elsa is a mind of information on places to visit and wineries for tasting. A definite return is a must!

After a long week in CapeTown this is just as the doctor ordered. We were welcomed as if we were family. The hosts were beyond wonderful. They literally helped us with everything and went above and beyond anyones expectations. Gorgeous breakfast and went out of their way for us to be happy. Made many reservations for us which was so appreciated. In fact when we needed a last minute extra room and they were booked they graciously immediately arranged for my friend to stay at another b and b.
Attention to detail thru out and just all in all a wonderful stay. In fact we did not want to leave! Hats off to this beautiful property and its wonderful owners. Would love to come back!!!

We stayed at Centre-Ville at the beginning of January in the 'indulgent' room.

Room nicely decorated in a 'shabby chic style'.Bathroom also well decorated and clean.

Owners are friendly but not intrusive. Breakfasts are good and served outside which is lovely.

Best thing is the location - 2 minutes walk from the Main Street and all it's restaurants and shops.

If you're staying here we also recommend trying the la motte vineyard hike (50 rand) which is 10 mins drive away and gorgeous views.

All in all a good experience.

We looked for a spot from which we could explore this world famous area. And we choose better than the best! Rooms were very good; we stayed in #2, called ‘Abundant’! Perfect, especially with the king, four poster bed bed. Breakfast omlettes tasted very good, the fruit was so fresh, and the great coffee was there, almost before the cup was empty. But the best were the people. Brenda was always there; what a wonderful person. And the owners, Elsa & Jaco, were so helpful: from getting us to the right spot to making bookings. Wow! Elsa, we'll be back. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! it can't be said too many times about Centre-Ville. Perfect!

Most reviews of this B&B have rated it highly, so I will admit that maybe we had a bad experience. However, we arrived at Centreville and were shown their "honeymoon suite". Immediately my fiancee and I noticed a strong smell of sewage. The hotel owner clearly noticed it as and opened a window but then left us, not acknowledging that there was clearly an issue with the room. After spending a few minutes discussing what to do, we then went down and spoke with the owners about the smell and concern about a sewage issue. Their solution: add copious amounts of air freshener in our room. As an added bonus there was what looked like sewage coming in from the jacuzzi tub, so we couldn't use that either.
The next day they brought 5 different people in and out of the room to install an air conditioner as the first one clearly had not worked from the previous day. They did this without notifying us and I found out by coming back unexpectedly and trying to get into my room. The workmen were there the entire afternoon which made me being able to use it impossible. I had to go into a different room to change clothes that afternoon. {On the positive side, the toilet was fixed at the same time so that is something.
Totally understand that plumbing and air conditioners break down, but given the condition of the room when we arrived, the owners should have acknowledged that the room was uninhabitable and either given us a different room or as they were fully booked they should have phoned around and tried to find us alternate accommodation.
Lastly, furniture and bed were very tired, the inn needs an updating. But, breakfast was lovely.

We stayed one week at the Centre-Ville Guest House at the room with the the large balcony with the wonderful view to the close mountain.
Else and Jaco gave us a heartly welcome even we arrived very late in the evening (flight delay). We can olny say the best of both Else and Jaco and of course the friendly team. The location of the house is suitable to go on foot to the huge number of the very good restaurants and to the market on Saturday (very good). You will also find neaby a boboon community and a lot of Wineries (i.e. La Motte). Elsa and Joca will give a lot of helpful information.
One day we will come back to South Africa and we will spend another couple of days in this beautiful area and of course in the centre-Ville Guesthouse.
Thanks a lot!!!
