Ideal for one night stop. Establishment is not well kept especially the exterior with old furniture and broken car parked in front of the B& B- truly struggled to see that it was the place we were looking for as we arrived late. The owners stay within the premises and share the dinning room and kitchen with guests together with... More

A uniquely wonderful place. The rooms are cozy, comfortably decorated, impeccably clean and very well appointed with high quality bed linens and towels. You feel as comfortable as you are in your own home. Mara & Althea`s breakfasts are delicious, the table pleasantly set and the service and conversation very special. The common areas are equally impressive and the property... More

What a guesthouse!!!! That's the first thing I must say about my experience in 3 Palms Guesthouse in Kuilsriver. Check- in was fast and friendly. It has 9 rooms, the experience is quite personal. The owner took me up to my room in order to present its features. The room itself was large and tastefully decorated in a classic style.... More

Well this place is honestly the worst I have ever stayed in; I was under the impression Cape Town was a warm and friendly place!

Dear Trevor We always appreciate honest reviews as it helps us to give a better service, but will be grateful if you would make sure of your facts. You could only use the toilet in your en suite, singular. We do not use the guest's toilets and rely on the guests to inform us of problems in the rooms. Why... More

We enjoyed their company at their little bar in the evenings and one night for dinner. Breakfast was very good, every morning. There were 6 of us (3 couples) in our party... More
