What a great Guest House and many thanks to our very welcoming hosts, Jaco and Elsa who made our stay so comfortable for the 4 nights we were in the area. We had the wonderful 'Splendor' suite which featured a lounge area, private balcony and wonderful spa bath which I used every day. Centre Ville is perfectly placed to get... More

My husband and I booked Centre-Ville for the evening before New Years Eve and New Years Eve itself. We had just come from the Garden Route Game Lodge in Albertinia and we were headed back for one night in Cape Town afterwards before we flew home to the US. Oh my! This place is so nice!

Owners are really friendly and nice people, the place offers an excellent location to explore the wineries and to go to nearby restaurants. In the summer rooms get really hot though as they are under the roof and even with air conditioning it is still too warm at night.

Dear Guests Thank you for your review and we know that the weather were extremely hot and unbearable. With 45 degrees during the day and no wind at night to cool down I can believe that you could not enjoy our heat. For us it was also not a very nice time because we also had a fire in our... More

This was the fourth time we have stay here, we always have the Splendour Room which has its own private decking. The breakfast must be one of the best in South Africa.

Great location.Close to "town" and all the lovely eateries. Very friendly hosts and full of ideas of where to eat etc. My Mom was not too well and they were great with her. The B & B is a bit tried could do with a bit of a make over.

Good Afternoon Thank you for your review and it is our pleasure to treat our guest with the best service. I am not sure what you mean with tired because this IS AN HISTORIC Guest House with antique furniture but our linen is crisp and new and if the Guest House was tired I would definitely not get 4-star grading....

A lovely couple run this guesthouse and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and quaint. We had two dormer windows with sloping ceilings, which necessitated care around the edges of the room to avoid knocking your head. We soon got used to it. Breakfast, depending on the weather, was served either around the pool... More

You step in to a world the could be from a bygone time, as if the decor as not changed in a 100 years with old family photos on the wall, to the grand light fitting through the house. Everything is just as the correct feel. And the breakfast table is a work of art it must take hours to... More

Our stay at Centreville was very enjoyable, particularly so because of our very accommodating hosts and very helpful staff.

Very nice place even if our room, Sensational, was just a bit small. Anyway it wasn't a problem because we staied there just for a night. The hosts are very very nice and the breakfast in the garden was absolutely delicious and peaceful for our souls. Thanks a lot!
