Greeted at the door by the friendly host Gerda. She had plenty of advice for us and went out of her way to help us keep the logistically issues to a minimum. Very much appreciated. Nice location, wonderful little cafe one block away. 10/10 would recommend to anybody staying in Cape Town.

Thank you for the nice time we had at Hillcrest, this marvelous place in victorian style. It felt like home, we felt so welcome and spoiled. The natural charm and helpfulness by Gerda was outstanding. We hope to be able to come back soon.

We stayed there for 2 weeks with our 2 year old, and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Gerda is a lovely host, and goes above and... More

Tamboerskloof is an ideal base for staying in the city, a very short drive away from all the main attractions; table mountain, the waterfront, beaches such as Camps bay and Clifton etc. We stayed in one of...

We had an amazing stay at Hillcrest manor, convenient and friendly. Superb view and very clean and cosy. We will stay again. A must visit is Blue Cafe on the same street. Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble.

Nice colonial house. We had the room number six on the top of the house and it wasn't the best one (shower with no cold water, I know usually happens the opposite but believe me in summer time you do not want to take a shower with boiling water),we saw the other rooms and they were pretty. Anyway it was... More
