My daughter and I spent two weeks at Tom's Guest House in June. We couldn't have chosen a better home away from home. Although the owners were away during our stay, we received fantastic care and hospitality from Dani and Eva, the two German girls who were responsible for the property. The rooms are lovely and comfortable, the decor is...

This B&B turned out to be the exact type of accomodation I was hoping for. Having only 5 days to spend in Capetown, I wanted to experience as much as possible. Capetown has so much to offer that after researching on the internet, it can get overwhelming. The host of the B&B Guenter was invaluable to my experience. He assisted...

This b&b is gorgeous in ever way, decor is very tasteful, breakfast is all you desire, the bedrooms are sufficient, but the overwhelming winning feature is the owners, Gunther and Martin are the stars of the show, they Re the hosts with the most, they know exactly how much looking after you need, and deliver accordingly. Thank you Gunther and...

As a frequent business traveller I have been to many a guesthouse and hotel. Not only does Tom's Guesthouse offer a homely environment with its plush surroundings and elegance, it is the people at Tom's that makes it a sheer pleasure to stay at. I find that after a tough day at the office, I go 'home' to friendly and...

This bed & breakfast was the first stop on our tour of South Africa's garden route, and it got us off on a great start. Guenter greeted us up at the airport, and our first hour with him set us up for a relaxing two weeks in South Africa as he gave us some travel essentials. Don't roll your eyes...

Tom's Guest House is a great value for your money and great service. The room we had had was clean, free wifi, and had a great shower and bathroom. The outside sitting area with views of Table Mountain was nice and spacious. Guenter provided great advise the minute we stepped into the door. He made reservations online for Table Mountain,...

We chose Tom's on the back of the location and the reviews on Trip Advisor and were so glad we did. One of the best and friendliest places we stayed in South Africa. The room we stayed in was out the back, off the garden so we felt like we had plenty of our own space. Our room had a...

This is a real gem and we really lucked out to stay here because originally we wanted to stay in a B&B down the road (Cactusberry). Cactusberry emailed me, saying they have no availability but they would recommend Tom's Guest House. This place is absolutely brilliant. Beautiful lounge, clean rooms, comfortable and amazing breakfast. Honesty bar is brilliant and really...

Really nice place, and with the advantage of being central (15-20 minute walk to Green Market Square). But the most striking thing for me about Tom's is the wonderful service provided, by particularly Guenter, who speaks fluent English. Guenter always made sure that you knew how to get to wherever you wanted to get, would give you down-to-earth advice on...

Tom has been very welcoming and helpful. He gave us some good advice for dinner. Breakfast was great and coffee excellent! Nice and spacious rooms. Parking facilities in front of the guesthouse. Small but nice swimming pool.
