“Lovely place, personalized service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

I stayed here with my daugther in September last year, and I must say it was one of the most homely places I've stayed at in a long while. The rooms are spacious, the location is great, walking distance to restaurants and Kloofstr with its lovely quaint little shops. The staff are extremely friendly, very welcoming and Fiona is a true gem. She really gets to know her clients and will always recommend the best attractions and actually spend time finding out what they like.

We stayed here for 3 nights before moving on and wish we could have stayed longer. The room was really great, the service was top notch and so was the breakfasts. The location is really great allowing easy access to Table mountain and many other places. It is in a really nice neighbourhood so you can head out and find a good spot for dinner on Kloof street.

Spent an extremely relaxing, enjoyable and memorable stay at Welgelegen. 6 nights in total, with a trip into the country in between. Fabulous location, excellent welcome and service, super rooms. Breakfast was a delight, the staff were accommodating, cheerful and seemed genuinely delighted to assist wherever they could with extra requests, recommendations for restaurants, day trips etc. Lovely relaxing courtyard, super pool and loungers, and a laid back ambience throughout. A strong recommendation for anyone looking to have a central base from which to explore CT whilst also having a first class, welcoming retreat to kick back in when required.

Room Tip: We had room 7 - would suit a family of 4 - and then room 10 which, whilst a little smaller, had a fa...

This guest house is well situated for visits to Table Mountain, V and A waterfront and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens -all just a short drive away.The staff are very helpful and rely on old- fashioned courtesy which complements the place's traditional ambience. Universal plugs in the room proved useful.There is a delightful pool in the sunny courtyard.
Will definitely return.

We had a wonderful time at Welgelegen. The minute we walked in, we were provided with first class service from each and every staff member. The rooms were immaculate, breakfasts so delicious. Cookies were so scrumptious that we could not stop snacking. The location could not be better. You can see the Table Mountain from this guesthouse. Anine, Sam, the kitchen staff all made us feel so comfortable. This became like home and we cannot wait to go back...
