I was in Cape Town for business, but with a weekend for some exploration. I have traveled extensively, but this was my first visit to Cape Town. Upon arrival, Aissa helped me think through my options for sights to see in my short time window; and then called some for me to gather information or line up a reservation. In...

I spent 8 nights in this guesthouse, I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Cape Town. The owners, Aissa and Ughetta were so nice and made me feel like home. The room was so nice and tidy all the time, the breakfast was outstanding, so delicious and the view, the best view ever of Cape Town. Great...

Beutiful house, great service. A relaxing oasis after a busy few weeks. Breakfast service, food and view, fantastic. Easy and affordable to travel to town by taxi. A refreshing dip in the pool after hours of shopping is a great treat.

This was the second guesthouse after Hermanus Manor on our SA trip. And the stay was even better. After having mastered the stairs with all our luggage, we were rewarded by a great view of Cape Town's bowl. Especially the soccer stadium stands out as a real gem in the middle of the beautiful coastline. We met Aissa, one of...

Of all the eye-candy on view in Cape Town and the surrounds, this has to be up there with the very best. What an astounding view to enjoy over a full on breakfast or chilling with a cool glass of the right stuff before hitting the town. But the lovely sisters who run the Bluegum Hill don't leave it there....

We absolutely loved our stay here. We arrived late at night and were met at the airport by a very nice driver who drove us to this little gem on a hill. Another man was waiting outside to let us in when we arrived. There was a kind note from Aissa on the bed and we quietly went down to...

This was our first trip to Cape Town and we LOVED Bluegum Hill Guesthouse.

Two night stay too short. Quiet residential area but you still feel part of the city. Breathtaking views of Waterfront and Sea Point. Bedrooms are spacious and immaculate. Friendly proprietor and staff. Will definately go back.
