What a nice house and rooms. great breakfast, very nice people working there. Jeannette was so nice during breakfast, she gave us a warm feeling. When we...

What a great place to spend a few days or more. Great host (Mark) and his staff are amongst the best. Sitting at the foot of table mountain, it's hard to imagine a better location. Close proximity to the centre of town but just far enough to get the peace and tranquillity of the area.

Location couldn't be better. At the foot of table mountain, ensures views of both bay and plateau. The guest house is typical colonial style house, both inside and outside. The decoration is a perfect match of old style furniture combined with all modern comforts. Family is extremely friendly and easy going and the lady who comes in the morning prepares...

Lovely guest house close to Table Mountain, Waterfront and the beaches. Had a lovely 3 week stay again and Mark and his girls are very friendly and make you feel at home. The view from the terrace is lovely and there is a splash pool for those summer days which just adds that bit extra. I would recommend to anyone...

We stayed at Esperanza on New Year's Eve and took an Uber to get to the V & A Waterfront for the New Year's Eve bash. The house is built with high ceilings, trimmed with solid wood and brass decor, and furnished with beautiful antiques. Our host ensured that everything was unloaded from our rental car to be safely stowed...

Have stayed here for a number of holiday weeks or two weeks over the past few years and the staff are always friendly, the rooms clean and quiet, and the location is unbeatable. It is a much better value than an expensive hotel.

The Esperanza Guesthouse is one of the oldest houses in Cape Town, and it is nice to stay in such a house. Sitting on the covered balcony overlooking the town is really great. The downside is that the interior is also a bit old, and some items may need some 'doing up'. The manager and the staff were very friendly...

“- Room 6 is positioned right across from the breakfast area, so if you are sensitive to sound and want to sleep late - maybe try and get another. - Although the guest house mentions that they have off-street secure parking, there is actually only space for 2 cars in the off-street parking area. If this important to you, make sure to phone ahead and ensure a space for your car.”
