Peace and quiet was what I needed and this was the perfect place to get just that. Beautifully decorated room with crisp clean linen made me feel like a queen. Thanks for the blessing Danie and Hanli!

What a wonderful place "Room with a View" is. We stayed with Danie and Hanli for 10 days, it was a very special time. Their home is perfection, lovingly cared for by these 2 delightful people.Nothing was too much trouble for them, their hospitality is second to none..
We have made friends for life!!!

Every room is a representation of the name, "Room with a view" over the False Bay area and the famous Helderberg.
This is a true "home from home" experience.
I will make sure to visit again.

A warm welcome! All rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and all have stunning views from Table Mountain, all around the bay to the mountains behind. Hanli and Danie provide wonderful hospitality in a friendly atmosphere, nothing is too much for them.
Thank you Hanli and Danie

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room. Some are just bigger than others.

I book a room for a German colleague of mine on a business trip, everything was made easy by Hanli and she really made you feel welcome. My colleague was not happy that I only booked one night here, and said that she will be back with her family in nereby future. Highly recommended.

I recently stayed over on way back from Cape town at this fantastic B&B, The rooms are beautifully decorated and all have the most amazing views of the mountains, Oceans and City. I was made to feel very welcome by the ownersHanli & Dani who are doing a great Job.
It was a great experience and I only wish I had stayed longer.

I will be back.
