Personalized service in a delightful guesthouse
We loved our hosts at Bluegum who were helpful and friendly. We met nice travelers there as well. The guesthouse has a lovely view of Cape Town and a real local feel. It is comfortable and well appointed. The pool has an amazing view. Breakfast is delicious! If you aren't too fond of impersonal hotels and like the idea of very personalized service and advise, you will love the Bluegum Guesthouse!

Nice place, great view, but agony to needed to be a mountain goat to ascend and descend the myriad steps down to the actual accommodation...shame because otherwise it was pretty nice.

Excellent choice!
It was amazing. The managers were very helpful and friendly. The staff was very good. Spectacular views. Location is close to my points of interest and easily accessible by Uber. The breakfast on the terrace is a joy.

Lovely spacious apartment.
Lovely well secured apartment up in the hills from Cape Town. Two bedrooms and a helpful owner. A garage so you don’t have to worry about your car. Superb views from your two balconies of Cape Town, Robben Island and the stadium. Waterfront a short drive away.
Michelle, gb4 night romance trip
Exceptional 10,0
We stayed for a total of 4 nights and were extremely pleased. The house is in a quiet neighborhood on Signal Hill with views overlooking Cape Town and Robben Island. The proprietor Aissa helped us in many ways big and small before and during our stay in Cape Town and we would rate service as some of the best we have ever had. The house has a nice, well apportioned rooms, each of which is unique and has a large bathroom. The outdoor areas are wonderful to sit out on. The house has a nice selection of reasonably priced wines, craft beers, and other drinks and snacks. We were out the door early almost every day, so we only ate breakfast there once, but with some forewarning, they will make you a to go breakfast for the next day. The breakfast we ate there was excellent. The only possible con is that the location of the hotel in a quiet neighborhood means you might want to Uber to destinations in the city rather than walking, particularly after dark. The V and A waterfront is within sight of the hotel, but apparently Cape Town can get a little dicey at night (we did not have any issues). We did not see this as a problem, particularly on the night they had a deafening carnival celebration near some of the other hotels, but it is something to consider. Not only would we stay here again, but I doubt we would even bother looking at other places to stay if we return to Cape Town.
