“good B&B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

We arrived early and we could get our room at that moment. Very nice room and we enjoyed our stay very much. The room was next to the swimming pool and had a nice view of the Table Mountain.Very safe area and close by a nice place(Carlucci's) to lunch or have a simple evening meal.

Room Tip: We had a room next to the pool and we enjoyed that very much.

This guest house is located close to central Cape Town just beneath Table Mountain in the lovely district of Oranjezicht. The single room was sufficiently spacious and well-appointed with TV, safe, en suite shower room and wifi access. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and a useful serving period from 07:30 onwards. A very helpful and comfortable place to stay at very good-value rates.

We stayed in the family room downstairs. It was massive, the kids slept on the sleeper couch. Plenty room for the four of us. Children loved 'going upstairs for breakfast' and adored Pat who spoiled them rotten with valentines presents and leaving gifts. They loved Molly the dog too who was extremely well behaved and cured their phobia of dogs. Pat couldn't do more to help, honesty bar was well stocked and were able to sneak some cereal when the kids were still hungry one evening. Pool was small but perfectly formed and just what's needed to cool off. Fantastic to have pool towels and suncream available for use too.
Can't say a bad word. Would highly recommend and would return if/when we go back to Cape Town.

Lovely guest house where nothing was too much trouble for Pat even stayed up very late for our arrival. Breakfast was excellent with special service for the grandchildren who loved the prepared watermelon. Felt very comfortable in this home from home.

This is the kind of guest house that make you feel like home!
Your guests will help you alot and provied very good service.

Breakfast is very luxurious, commidities, bedrooms are very well maintained. Nice swimming pool more than useful to refresh when it is hot!

The area allows you to easily walk down to city center or walk up to table mountain / lion's head if you like hiking.

Again thanks, will come back
