The breakfast is amazing with homemade juice, granola and muffins. It's a real treat to be able to take the muffin for later in the day! The rooms are...

Very, very good. Tom and Joh's hospitality are second to none! Their breakfast is awesome. The rooms are good, location is fine. The beach is a 10 min walk downhill, downtown capetown easy to get to. Highly recommended.

Our friends advised us to stay in Camps Bay and use it as our base to explore the Cape Town area. This was good advice. Le...

We booked for a 3 night stay at Le Gouverneur but nothing prepared us for what was in store for us. Jo and Thom were more than the perfect hosts as they went above and beyond our expectations every way! We were lucky enough to have booked the penthouse and how beautiful it was!!!

Not only are the views the best available in Camps Bay, but the breakfast was the best I've had, day after day, at any guest house. The hosts are friendly, warm, accommodating, helpful and just great to be around. I highly recommend this guesthouse, and can't wait to return here on a future trip.

We had again a wonderful time in Le Gouverneur Guesthouse. Tom and Jo are very nice, very helpful and they know how to spoil the guests. We would choose Le Gouverneur again, when we are the next time in Camps Bay.
