We stayed at the Bergzight Guesthouse as a treat on Valentines Day, even though we live just a few kilometres away. We had a beautiful, quiet room with an amazing view of the city and Table Mountain. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful and we were proud to be Capetownians and have such wonderful people representing our city. Well... More

Stayed one night before returning home. They was very accommodating with our luggage as we had been to Stellenbosch for the day. Steps to upper level can be a bit tough for some people. They get an A+ for the radio tuned to a classical music station and F for the TV selection. Great view on Table mountain

Our room had a fantastic view of the city and table mountain. Staff was helpful and friendly, and the neigbourhood felt safe; street parking was not a problem. Standard breakfast was fine; the special treat was eating in the historic room with frescoes on the walls! We walked to Long Street for dinner and live music; about a 15 min... More

A very friendly guesthouse with spectacular views of Table Mountain. The walk into town takes in Long Street and is comfortable. Catherine and Victor and Jamica do a great job running the place. Highly recommended.
