Stunning house, quirky décor, lovely outside setting for excellent breakfast, we liked the communal table which encourages people to chat. The room was small and very hot, the fan provided made so much noise that we didn't use it. Shower didn't drain properly - Memory said she would have it seen to.

My first time to stay at Sweet Orange Guesthouse. The room was very clean. The staff were very friendly. I will definitely stay there again. The break fast was very good as well. Absolutely good value for the money.

Thank you very much for your friendly hospitality for the two days we spend in Cape Town. It was good to have a save harbour in that unknown city. The nice garden with the little pool was very important for our little boy. Your breakfast was the best breakfast we have had on our whole South-Africa trip. We would come...

My husband and I spent 5 days at Sweet Orange. The location is great, the room was nice but we did not get the service expected. Other reviews were really good so I thought we would have the same experience. The employees were nice but we could only find them early morning during our stay, if you needed anything during...

Dear 896reneea, We thank you for your positive review as well as your personal comments and we are sure we can bring some light into the situation. As you booked via Hotels.com / Expedia your payment went directly to the online booking engine and therefore we never received your credit card details.

Reviewed 8 December 2015

I stayed for only one night as a walk-in and had a beautiful room upstairs. The interior design of the villa is tastefully choosen and comfortable, breakfast delicious, more German than South African and served outside in the garden. Value for money is rated average due to the extra payment for Wi-Fi.

Thank Humanperspective
SweetestGuesthouses, Front Office Manager at Sweet Orange Guest House, responded to this review

We appreciate the review of Humanperspective as well as the personal comments about the stay. The reason for the majority of German travellers during his stay is probably due to our roots as the owners are from Good Old Germany. Kind regards, Bridget Jack for Sweetest Guesthouses

Staying only 1 night in Cape Town is way too short! Either way, you have limited time or much more nights, I would suggest to book Sunsweet Orange where you may indulge yourself in great South African styles as well as have an excellent breakfast! It is also close to some nice restaurants and close to the sea!
