The perfect home base.
The staff were very friendly and were quick to answer every question I had. The location is great and makes for easy access anywhere in Cape Town, while the B&B itself is adorable with a lovely pool and very comfy rooms. Definitely, a place to go back to!

A gem
This is a beautiful guest house with a great view of Table Mountain. The service was excellent. I had the honeymoon suite, which was lovely. I would definitely stay here again.
