We are a couple who stayed here for four nights and everything was perfect. The staff was very nice and helpful. They helped us with booking dinners and taxis. The guest house is in a quiet and peaceful area. The room was clean and with stylish decor.

The stay at Trevoyan Guest House has been one of our highlights in Cape Town! Starting with the rooms, that are absolutely beautiful and make you feel like home. The lovely garden with the pool invites you to relax and the rooftop terrace was perfect to watch the sunset. Breakfast was really fresh and some eggs were prepared for you...
