This guesthouse is located in a very quiet area. Was a great stay. It is centrally located and access to Camps Bay, the city and the highways is easy. Just be aware that there a couple of stairs to walk to get to the rooms.

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.
