We stayed for about two days. We enjoyed staying in this hotel. The staff made this stay memorable. The location is ideal to plan daytrips and the restaurants nearby are very good. If we will come back to capetown we will definity stay again in this guest house.

What a magnificent view of table mountain from our little verandah! We picked a room with a view and did it ever! There is nothing like Table Mountain with the table cloth of clouds one day, or in the clear the next with the cable car going up and down - what a treat! This is a well run and...

A charming guesthouse with a very hospitable host.

The room and bathroom were tastefully decorated and well appointed. The breakfasts were delicious. The only improvement would...

A really beautiful hotel run by Fiona and Karen who help make your stay memorable, will recommend and book local restaurants and will do whatever they can to make your stay memorable. A lovely oasis at the back of the hotel to chill out in the pool and enjoy the sun. Very convenient to explore Cape Town and experience the...

Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 teens) stayed here for 5 nights and were delighted with the service and accommodation. It is just a 5 min walk to the Kloof Street which has lots of great eating place. The service is excellent, the rooms lovely and the view of Table Mountain is pretty special. The staff were friendly and...

Charming, homely and very comfortable boutique hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be sad to leave Fiona and the team who have looked after us extremely well. Lovely location with fantastic views of Table Mountain. Convenient for getting into the city but with good local restaurants within 5 mins walk.

I visited Welgelegen while vacationing in Cape Town with friends, and I was blown away by this hotel. I haven't stopped raving about it for two months. Ultimately Welgelegen is an incredible place to stay for three reasons: (1) the location, (2) the hotel itself, and (3) the service provided by the managers. First, Welgelegen is in a prime location....
