Small friendly, clean and a pleasant breakfast. Excellent location with some shops and restaurants and a 10 minute walk to the V&A docks, although a taxi is inexpensive. The owners of the B&b were really helpful and happy to help with local tips and advice. Would stay here again

Very good location on (safe) walking distance of the V&A Waterfront. Easy to get here by car. Helpfull and friendly owner seems to know every (good) place to eat in the city, as well as what to do and when. Quiet atmosphere. Comfy rooms (although the mattress was a bit saggy). Great place to stay in Cape Town!

Thierry and Philip are the charming and welcoming hosts at this superb guest house. Hard to fault it! A large comfortable bedroom with ensuite shower and toilet. Plug sockets for computer/phone charging are a very useful addition. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice of fresh croissants and rolls, cold cuts, cheese and jams.

“Rooms 2 to 4 are on the second floor and 1 is by the entrance. There is no lift. 3 faces Signal Hill.”

“Even though our room was located near the front entrance there was minimal noise and was still peaceful!”
 of 5 bubbles CarolinePE, 3 Apr 2015 | Read review
“We were in Room 3 on the first floor. Very quiet; shower + bath; partial views of Signal Hill (and its occasional paragliders) from the windows - and adjacent to the door on to the spacious and shaded balcony, making it easy to feel like a substantial extension of our room.”
