This was my third stay at Le Gouverneur. Each time has been amazing. Jo and Tom are absolute gems. They attentive and yet never overbearing. The ultimate hosts. Breakfasts are to die for. Jo does all the baking and she is an excellent baker. The views from this establishment are so awesome. Photographers....be mesmerized. Thank you Jo and Tom.

Fantastic hosts made our stay in a lovely city that much better. The breakfast each morning was delicious - homemade and as good as you will get in the city. Fully recommend this hotel - if we return to Cape Town we will stay here.
