It was the pictures of the stunning suspended pool and views of Table mountain that attracted us and 'wow' we were not disappointed. Originally booking the bedroom with 'no views', it did not take much to upgrade once we walked into one of the rooms with a floor to ceiling view of Table Mountain. Its not just the views but...

My wife and I recently enjoyed what was a sensational summer recess at Bayview Guesthouse. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Christine, we felt welcomed and at home. The guesthouse itself is beautiful and modern, with exceptional views of Table Mountain and its surrounds. The guesthouse is centrally located and allows access to both the city bowl...

This was our first time in SA and the Bayview Guesthouse has been recommended by friends. It was the perfect start into our holidays and we decided to come back soon. In December 2016 for another great stay at this lovely, warm and welcoming place.

The views of table mountain and the proximity of all the sights is great. The guesthouse is also lovely, clean and well decorated although very modern and minimalistic , depends if you like this sort of thing as I personally found it wasn't very homely and I was scared to touch anything ! Breakfast is nice but considering it is...

The very very best B&B we have ever stayed in!!! Amazing views, the rooms and design of the house is remarkable - have been here for both winter and summer and will continue to book here on my visits. The location is perfect and it's also out the hustle and bustle of main city bowl. Its literally right under Table...

A new modern B&B with some of the best views in Cape Town. The rooms have excellent modern finishes like automatic closing blinds, USB charging sockets, air-conditioning, and double glazing sliding doors and windows. The suspended, glass walled pool is impressive. Off street, undercover parking. Breakfasts are a treat. The hostes Christine had been very helpful and friendly both times...

The B&B is ideally located at the foot of the Table Mountain, with very modern rooms and a very comfy bed. Great breakfast (variety of bread, sausage, cheese and fruit, fruit juices, selection of teas or coffee, eggs...) Super-friendly staff, safe parking. Thanks Christine for hosting us! If I ever get the chance to come to Cape Town again I'll...

I stayed at Chris' Bayview Guesthouse for two weeks for a work-cation. I had some work to do and wanted to also spend some time enjoying the sights, sounds and pleasures of Capetown and its environs. Chris was prompt and very helpful in organizing my time there. She offered to assist me with car rental and other details. She responded...

I have stayed at Bayview numerous times, and absolutely love it. It is everything one could ask for. The building is an architectural masterpiece, complete with a glass swimming pool and exquisite views. It is also perfectly located in the City Bowl. Christine and her staff are friendly and attentive, but also gracious enough to leave you in peace. The...

I reviewed Bayview Guesthouse in 2011, but since then there has been a complete rebuild, though it is still run and owned by Christine, Lulu continues as the star in the kitchen and the amazing views of Table Mountain haven't gone away. But the new Bayview is a completely different place - this wasn't a renovation but a complete rebuild....
