Extremely comfortable very friendly management and staff a great view of Table Mountain from our balcony. Manager was very helpful in recommending ways to see Cape Town and even drove us to where we could catch the On/Off bus tours. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Would recommend staying there.

We recently stayed at 1 on Queens Guest House for 4 nights. The service was second to none. Gavin and Thomas provided us with extremely helpful recommendations for restaurants (all of which were spot on), bars and unique excursions.

We stayed at 1-on-Queens for 10 days around Christmas 2012, and had a wonderful time.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights over Christmas 2012. The managers are super helpful and friendly, which is great. The location in Tomboerskloof is great, and you can walk easily to some bars and nice restaurants. Our only "complaint" were some noisy neighbors in adjoining rooms, and the place is quite cramped, so noise carries. Breakfasts... More

Nothing was too much trouble for Gavin, Tomas and Juan who were full of local information, always ready to book on our behalf and even going the extra mile quite literally and picking us up from a local restaurant late one evening!

We stayed 4 nights in this wonderful guest house, we had a very beautiful room with a magnificent view on the Table Mountain. Lovely breakfast. We also loved the location, very quiet and it costs only about 50 rand for a taxi to get to the Waterfront. And last but not least, the staff is great and very friendly! Especially... More

“Our room no 6 was on the ground floor along from the dining area and open plan kitchen. There was a door which could be closed to prevent some of the early morning breakfast prep being heard but wasn't totally soundproof. Not too much of a problem as we are early risers but if you wanted to sleep in a while you would have been disturbed.”
