Riversong Guest House gets my seal of approval
This is an excellent guest house, spacious room, huge bathroom, full breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. My only issue was with the internet - is is unstable and sometimes it disconnects, you have to wait for a minute then it comes back. Just have in mind that this is a (beautiful) residential area, in the neighborhood (within 10 minutes walk) there is only a few shops, coffee shop, a supermarket, a restaurant, a bar - which I could not enjoy much as I was staying around Christmas & New Year and they were closed most of the days. To reach one of the trails to Table Mountain it takes only 15 minutes walk from the guest house. I would stay here again in the future if they fix the internet.
