We stayed in the Corner Suite for 6 nights in mid May.

The room has awesome views of Table Mountain and Hout Bay. Balcony was a pleasing feature of the room. Bathroom was kitted out to a high spec (and has a bath and separate shower), there's loads of wardrobe space and the bed was large and comfy. Also had Apple TV and I think that there were TV channels, although we didn't bother watching them. Minibar was reasonably priced and the cleaning service was top drawer. Security is first rate and the grounds are spectacular.

Dirk & Patrick are amazing hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and they are very knowledgeable about local restaurants and things to do. Dirk was kind enough to make reservations for us at several restaurants during our stay and they both helped us out with other things in any way that they could.

Breakfast was unbelievably good. Croissants, fresh fruit and yoghurt, cheese, meat, muesli, eggs made to order...the list goes on. Chester is the housekeeper; he is very keen to please and does a great job of looking after you. The dog, Paul, kept us company at breakfast each day and is brilliant to have around.

We booked car hire through CUBE's referral link and got a preferential rate and additional perks (e.g. unlimited mileage and no excess).

Wifi is included and is excellent.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. After reading the reviews on this site we found ourselves almost looking for faults, but couldn't find anything. It really is as good as everyone makes out.

Room Tip: Corner Room has incredible views.

My girlfriend and I were visiting Cape Town for the first time and we've booked 8 nights at the Cube Guest House. Best choice we could have made!! It was marvellous!!

We haven't done any real research on Cape Town and on what to do due to lack of time (Yeah, right). But help was near! Dirk and Patrick (with beautiful dog Paul) are the most helpful hosts you can imagine!
They sorted our desire for delicious food and recommended only the best restaurants in Cape Town. Every morning at the breakfast table, of which i will talk about later, they gave us so many tips how to spent our days. And not only this, they even helped us booking all the tickets.

Their guest house is a very beautiful piece of architecture. It's tasteful, spacious and very clean. Everything is kept to a modern and luxurious standard. It's an oasis of calm and peace. Just perfect for a holiday! The rooms are very comfortable and to a very high standard.

Every morning you couldn't wait to get up because it was breakfast time. Their breakfast is just fantastic. Whatever you wish for, it's there. Eggs whatever way you want 'em, fresh and delicious bread rolls, fresh fruit, coffee the way you wish for and the most amazing homemade marmelades. Out of this world. I never eat marmelade if i'm honest but for those days at the Cube Guest House I had marmelade every single morning. Couldn't get enough of it.

All in all i just can't recommend the Cube Guest House enough! It's the perfect stay. If you still don't know where to book, think no more. You won't regret it, trust me.
We'll definitely go back. If I could give more than five stars, I'd give ten.
We had our best holiday ever thanks to Patrick and Dirk. And Paul.

" We arrived at 2am and were blown away by the warm welcome by Patrick, Dirk and their lovely dog Paul who had stayed up so late to welcome us in person. We reserved the "Cottage" due to its original design and really enjoyed the experience. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was small due to the design of the cottage but very functional. It was a shame we were there in early spring as otherwise you could have used the beautiful garden and pool. After a good nights sleep we enjoyed our first breakfast on the terrace which was already set when we woke up. We couldn't have asked for more - fresh yoghurt, fruits, cold cuts, cheese, bread rolls, eggs and even a wide selection of home made preserves. Dirk and Patrick seemed to be able to read our minds as they usually offered their help in arranging excursions and making thoughtful suggestions before we even knew what exactly we wanted to do. Additionally, the guest house is perfectly located between the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Town making it easy to explore the area in a short period of time. We had a wonderful time and can recommend everybody to stay there. Due to its design it made us feel a little like in a nice Boutique Hotel with very personal and warm service. "

Stayed four nights at this B&B which is run by a friendly and polite German couple. Breakfast was set up in the garden every morning and was a delight. Fresh fruit and baked goods and some home made preserves as well as eggs cooked to order. There are some nice restaurants nearby which we enjoyed after our hosts recommended them.
We stayed in a corner room with commanding views of the mountains and bay.

We had a fantastic week in Cape Town, and staying at CUBE was the best decision we made in the whole trip! Not only is it a beautiful home with nice views of the mountains and good location for getting to all of the sites around, but Dirk and Patrick are the perfect hosts - friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area and where to go when. Our friends recommended CUBE so we didn't even see all the reviews before we went, but after our week there can definitely say it lives up to the glowing reports from everyone who has stayed there!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Comb view which has it's own little grassy terrace, room has lots of light and space.
