Reviewed 31 July 2016

We loved An African Villa. Gorgeous room with beautiful views of table mountain. Neighborhood was safe with plenty of parking and is a 5 minute walk or $3 cab to the restaurants of Kloof Street. The table mountain cable car and the V&A are also both very quick car rides. Breakfast was great as well with a full continental spread and delicious egg dishes cooked to order.

We stayed here for several nights. The hotel is boutique (more like a guesthouse), clean and in a quiet area. It is well run, with a good cooked breakfast. The rooms are basic with en- suite bathrooms and limited toiletries. It was quite cold as the room heating was a bit haphazard. The big advantage is that the staff provide excellent touring info. The in-room red folder was great in helping us get around and Louie provided us happily with excellent information and tips. Good free wifi.

I absolutely loved this place. It felt like staying with a well off friend. The breakfast was fresh made to order, the staff was so courteous, and the owners were there every morning to help plan your day. My wife and I are young and they knew just the spots we should go to. They even set us up with a reservation the day of at The Test Kitchen out of the blue: unheard of apparently by anyone who knows the restaurant. This was incredible value and incredible service. Thanks everyone!

Once again I've returned to An African Villa and never disappointed. Treated my parents to a surprise 50th wedding anniversary. The team are fantastic!!! and so attentive, customer service at its best. The guest house is pure luxury and beautifully decorated. It has not lost its exquisite charm since my last visit. The rooms are beautiful. You will not be disappointed. I will always stay here in capetown

This was the greatest stay of the year so far; the wife was able to totally relax and get some much needed R and R!!

Keith was a brilliant member of staff who looked after us all through the stay - no request was too extreme and he always had a fun joke for us in the morning to start our day with a bang.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This Villa is much more than that! It is in fact three houses which are part of a Victorian terrace dating from 1892. The double story houses have been joined together and so the inside spaces are much larger than the facade suggests. It's like walking into a TARDIS someone has written on Tripadvisor! There are 12 rooms and the hotel is owner managed.Location is vital when choosing a spot for you vacation and this more than a Villa is within an easy walk of all tourist attractions in the city area. The others (like the fabulous beaches) are a short taxi ride away.There is a small plunge pool in a peaceful courtyard where a very full breakfast is served in summer. (In winter there's a sociable dining room and an eco-friendly fire blazing). Your hosts are very careful to offer you as much information as you want and they will arrange car rental, restaurant reservations, tours etc. As required.Free internet on 2 computers in a library area and wireless access is available in all rooms. At night the night porter will set out complimentary sherry and port and at other times there is an honesty bar and guest fridge in the kitchen. Parking is on street and there is no charge (street guards patrol) but you should not need a car from this well placed hotel. ... more   less
