As a group of cycling buddies, we stayed for 3 nights at 4 on Varneys for the second year in a row to participate in the Cape Town Cycle Tour. Like last year Philip and Thierry, the owners and Emmett, the manager, were again great hosts! They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable, like an early...

Nice hospitality, clean and an excellent location! Walking distance to the V&A Waterfront and some gay bars. Safe area in general. This pace can truly be recommended for a stay in beautiful Cape Town!

We fully enjoyed our 7 days stay at 4 Varneys in Green Point. The service was on point, the rooms comfortable and clean, breakfast refreshing. Our stay was really pleasant and the staff members/owners were helpful and friendly. We cant wait to go back - 4 Varneys will always be our first option when visiting Cape Town.

Having stayed both in City Bowl and Green Point, I can safely say that Green Point has way more charm, but no view of Table Mountain. There are restaurants and coffee shops nearby. It's about a 15 minute walk to the City Bowl. The rooms are cheerful and the breakfast adequately satisfactory. The hosts are charming and make you feel...

This cozy B&B has great character (decor..and owners) and is a short walk from the Waterfront and the CBD. What's on offer - free Wi-Fi, friendly staff, free advice on Cape Town,and waistline-friendly-continental breakfast.

We didn't want a faceless corporate hotel in the waterfront or city, so chose this as a smaller guesthouse with a hope of a personal touch. We got what we wanted. The two owners visited most mornings, were chatty without being intrusive and were well informed about Cape Town, the waterfront, the city and things for us to do. They...

“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.”
