Spacious, clean, comfortable, beautiful, absolutely everything you could ask for after a long day of meetings, could not want for more! Breakfast is great and staff super friendly. Added bonus was the spacious bath and shower and extra large bed. I arrived very late, yet received such a welcoming greeting!

The location is great. The staff are friendly & helpful with great restaurant tips. The rooms are neat, tidy & well-appointed. The breakfast was quite good with made-to-order available (and included!). And they even have an elevator to get to the top floors! We quite enjoyed our brief one night stay & I would highly recommend Cape Riviera to anyone...

Really lovely rooms, and a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The hill-side setting gives great views of both the city scape and Table Mountain! The bedrooms are thoughtfully decorated, and the staff very helpful.

I recently had the privilege of staying at Cape Riviera. The Guesthouse is perfectly located in the beautiful suburb of Oranjezicht at the foot of Table Mountain with spectacular views. Its location allows for very easy access to many things, but still gives the feeling of "home" as it's not located in the city. The charming atmosphere, décor and building...

The Cape Riviera is the prefect place to stay when visiting Cape Town. Its location is wonderful, in a quiet and safe neighbourhood overlooking the city. The staff could not be more helpful and accommodation. The cooked breakfasts are excellent. And the rooms are very comfortable.

An old colonial style house, nice rooms and very friendly staff. A great view over Cape Town from the balcony. Cents of town/waterfront can be reached in 10 minutes by taxi. The whole "public area" of the house is in the old colonial style, well maintained and you feel yourself gliding back into these old times. The manager of the...
