Bishopsfield is a stylish guest house in a quiet area of town, very convenient to get to the City, Waterfront, Cape Town airport, Northern Suburbs and all the great Cape Town tourists attractions.

Nice guest house in a quiet area of town. Good Service and good value. Just what the business traveller needs. Rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast was good, just starts a bit late for the busy traveller. WOuld be good to start earlier

We have recently spent two nights at this beautiful bed and breakfast in Rondebosch. From the minute we arrived Colwyn and her husband made us feel so welcome, we almost felt like we were in our own home. We can highly recommend Bishopsfield Guest house to other travellers and will definitely be returning in the not too distant future.

I spent 8 days in this warm, friendly and well run guest house while on business. It is perfectly located in a quiet neighbourhood that is ideal for anyone on business. If you are looking for privacy and a feel for a home setting then I highly recommend it. For those who are sporty, a running/walking track is located very...

Thank you for taking the time to review Bishopsfield. I am very happy that you found the house to your liking and were comfortable here.

Excellent hospitality - thank you Colwyn! This stylish and beautiful Guest House was the best choice for us during our stay in Cape Town. We loved returning each night to our very comfortable and lovely room after a day out and nothing was too much trouble for Colwyn, our hostess. Also enjoyed the generous & delicious breakfast served each morning...

Excellent location for the five day Test Match - plus Colwyn was the perfect hostess. Our room was delightful - airy and very stylish. The breakfast was delicious - a five star stay! We walked to the cricket ground (35mins) but Colwyn would transport any guests who wanted to ride there (5mins). We would definitely return - Thank you Colwyn
