A charming establishment in one of Cape Town's most beautiful settings, the leafy, luscious Newlands suburb. We are 5 minutes walk from trendy restaurants, highest quality medical facilities, Newlands Rugby and Cricket field and ten minutes from the University of Cape Town. The beautiful Vineyard Hotel is on our doorstep and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the lovely Newlands forest are ten minutes away

We wanted to be central, my family were visiting from the UK so I booked my whole family in here. What a shock. When we arrived we found the place filthy inside and out at the pool with sand and leaves everywhere (like it had been abandoned). This is not a guest house - these are rooms stuck onto the back of an old dilapidated house like Lego bricks. You have to walk through the kitchen to get into the back rooms. It's like attached lego bricks suitable for students. One of the rooms was a converted maids quarter. Stains on the linen and dirty smears on walls - I can go on and on. I called Travelstart 9 times before I got through to cancel. No help in finding an alternative on a public holiday and it took 2 weeks to get my money back. RUN!

This little B&B was perfect for our stay in Cape Town. Host Pedro was helpful & informative and presented a grest breakfast. There was secure off-street parking and the location was very convenient. Thanks to Jacqui for letting me have my dog with me!

Excellent location. The hosts were very accomodating. The WiFi was fast as they have fibre. Very safe area for taking walks. The conversations with Pedro is priceless - he is a man that has lived life and I was very excited to hear his stories.

I stayed in Jaqui's guesthouse in January 2019. It is a very comfortable and quiet place. Very conveniently located even if you do not have a car. Good restaurants are walking distance and even the beautiful Kirstenbosch botanical gardens are half an hour away along the river. The hosts arranged for a cab to take me around during my stay and I had a wonderful time. I recommend the delicious breakfasts and the secure and quiet guesthouse to everyone.

Jaqui's Garden Guesthouse provides a very affordable option for those attending congresses st the adjoining Vineyard Hotel, literally a mere stone's throw away. Accommodation was comfortable, staff very friendly and breakfast prepared by Pedro was exceptionally good!
