Would not recommend the guest house.
No plug in the wash basin. The door could only be closed by locking the door with a key. No parking available.Could not get into the building for about 15 minutes. No response.

Enchanted Guest house not so enchanted...
The BNB was not what it looked like in the pictures on this website. The site is very deceiving. The TV's did not work in any of my co workers rooms for the entire duration of our 3 day trip. My door would not lock and the rooms were not maintained or services appropriately. The parking was not secure parking as there was no lock up parking which was stipulated in the description of facilities. We would NEVER stay here again and no one else should!

Good Location and lovely staff.
An older property in a nice area of Cape Town. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The location is excellent with several bus routes that run to the city centre very close by. Our room was large with a balcony with a sea view (just). It was well equipped with a refrigerator and all the amenities that you would expect in a decent hotel. There was ok wifi in the reception area but not in the room. Breakfast was quite good and cooked to order. The only criticism is that the rooms are a bit shabby and cleanliness is not their strong point. For instance there was mould around the bath which i was easily able to wipe off - clearly the cleaners had missed it. It was acceptable but could have been better. Overall, I was pleased we stayed here but I think it was expensive for what it provided although I do recognise that Cape Town accommodation is not cheap.

Old fashioned service in a charming guest house
The room was beautifully decorated and very, very comfortable (great bed, soft sheets, good towels and bath, etc.). The cooked to order breakfast was wonderful. But most of all, the innkeeper was extremely focused on the happiness of guests. He took it upon himself to talk to each guest, to help with logistics, to make everything work very smoothly. You don't get innkeepers like that in the age of the big hotel chain! Incredible value for the money!

Pleasant stay!
More suited for holiday stay as opposed to business as there was no wi-fi in the room. Otherwise everything else was good. I loved that I could walk to the beach and Bantry Bay is a great neighbourhood.

I will not pay for the hotel booking.
This is the 3rd review that I have written about my experience at the Enchanted Guest Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. After traveling a day and 1/2 from New York City, I arrived at the hotel to find that the front gate was locked. I rang the bell for 20 minutes, called for someone to come to the gate to let me in to register, AND ,also telephoned the front desk; however, none of my efforts resulted in any person arriving to check me into the hotel. As a result, I had to then look for another hotel for my stay! This was both an unprofessional hotel, and a horrific experience to have to endure after such a long journey .I have instructed my credit card company NOT to accept the $397.00 upfront booking charge.
