Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by two friendly staff members, Clark and Utah. They quickly got us signed in and showed us to our lovely rooms. They then proceeded to welcome us to the area, provided us with a welcome coffee/tea/water and asked if we had any questions about the area or needed recommendations for anything in particular. They...

Set in a wonderful part of town I couldnt recommend Tintagel any higher. Our room was absolutely beautiful, the staff are amazing, and breakfast was great. A big thank you to both Clarke and Utah for making our stay even better.

We stayed for three nights at the Tintagel guesthouse and found it to be so comfortable and welcoming. The staff were super friendly and couldn't have been any more helpful. They checked that we knew where we were going every time we left and they gave us great tips on places to visit. The room was very nice, so quiet...

Firstly, the staff we met, Clark, Ivan and Utah were attentive and efficient in every way. The room we had was excellent, well-equipped and, although facing New Church Street, soundless. The house rambles with internal courts and airy covered areas as well as indoor seating. The breakfast was very good, both buffet and served and the location in the Tamboerskloof...

Very comfortable, centrally placed and with pleasant and obliging staff. Room was a good size and bathroom, small but efficient. Breakfast was more than adequate and the staff were attentive to any request for specific requests.

My husband and I stayed at Tintagel Guesthouse at the end of January/early February - and what a find. We visit Cape Town every couple of years, and love this particular part of Cape Town - the location is excellent. The guesthouse itself was beautiful, very well kept, lovely spacious room, and considering it is on a fairly busy road...

From the moment we arrived, after a very long journey, we felt the arms of welcoming around us! Utah and Ivan should receive outstanding acclaim for customer service, as by the end of our stay we actually felt we were staying with good friends! Stayed in two rooms which were both clean, quiet, beautifully furnished (not an Ikea table in...

Comfortable bed with well equipped room. Centrally located and has parking. Breakfast was excellent. Some traffic noise due to its central location on major road through cape town. We would stay here again.

I stayed at Tintagel the week between Christmas and New Year, so the whole area was hectic and the place was booked. The residence was clean and neat, with an interesting garden and quite a long history of stories. Each morning, breakfast was served. Not just the continental bread and jam you normally get. There was a resident cook who...

A great place to stay close to everything. Uber service was also brilliant and very reasonable. Service was fantastic and breakfast awesome. Utah, the front of house couldn't do enough to assist - a great team servicing the guests. Highly recommended.
