The location is excellent - close to Hoop on-off bus. Seapoint is a nice area in Capetown offering nice restaurants and super markets. The staff at Sweet Orange Guest House is very friendly and helpful.

Really lovely, clean and staff were amazing. Floor boards a little noisy so you can hear everything but part of the character of the place. The location was great and easy to walk to the sea. Loved it!

Superb location; great food too, with a very charming atmosphere. They also allowed us to store some luggage for 10 days while we went off on a cycle trip. We would stay in any of the "Sweetest" guest houses again!

Surprisingly just off the mid Seapoint Main Road, is a hidden gem. A guesthouse, part of a fivesome of other 'Sweets', this Sweet Orange's doors open on an old, real wood floored mansion. The kitchen is the huge heart of the house, opening onto a small paradise of a garden. From the kitchen come memorable breakfasts, of flans, fruit salads,...

Situated very centrally near good cafes, the beach and the bus line is this awesome rustic guesthouse. If you like awesome cooked breakfasts, fabulous rooms, a roaring fire and a beautiful patio this is the place to stay. Lovely knowledgable staff too! Only issue was wifi charges were higher than expected
