We booked this holiday very last minute (less than 1 week in advance) and so there was not a lot of choice in Cape Town due to Easter Holiday's. The Guest House is ideally located 5 minutes walk from the shops on Main Road at Sea Point and there is an excellent viewpoint to watch the sun set each evening...

It's not often that I am very disappointed and unimpressed with a place. Upon arrival there was no one to welcome me or assist me, it took around 10 minutes for me to gain access. The reception is very old, there are large holes in the walls and attempts have been made to cover them up with newspaper. The rooms...

Nice team, Good standard for an affordable good price. The view is great in front of the sea and you can enjoy it from the balcony. I was here for business and was able to use the Wi-Fi which is becoming a must have when you travel on business, they have it.

My husband and I stayed at the guesthouse for two nights, taken great care of by the very capable Leyla and Muhamed!
