Hatfield Guest House is a real treat. Home away from home. The charm and friendliness is abundant and you are made to feel most welcome. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed and the breakfasts are superb. If you have business in the Claremont area of Cape Town, don't stay anywhere else.

I had a few meetings in Cape Town to attend to so decided to spend the night before there. The rooms were stunning and the view of the mountain was fantastic.

We had an awesome experience at Harfield Villas, we booked one of the chalets which was perfect with 2 young noisy children! Breakfast was an extravaganza every morning and Graham and his team were very welcoming and lovely to us all.

My adult son and I were fortunate to stay at the Harfield for 11 nights so that we could visit my daughter, who is interning with an NGO in Cape Town.
