We were welcomed by a very friendly Debbie when we arrived. Offered apples, biscuits, etc for early breakfast before Two Oceans. Room was clean and neat and stylishly decorated. Very comfortable bed. Had to park in the street, but that was fairly safe. Great location for Two Oceans Marathon.

The breakfast was amazing. The guesthouse is near UCT so it was convenient for our trip. The room was spacious and clean with complimentary drinks which was a nice touch. The guesthouse itself is cosy

Great experience in a homely environment. Friendly and welcoming service by the manager. Would recommend for business and leisure travel. Easy access to highway, but only few restaurant options in the direct vicinity.

We are so glad you felt at home and enjoyed your stay. We are lucky to have one of the best steakhouses in Cape Town just down the road together with a few other traditional "sit down" restaurants coupled with a large range of take out options and grocery stores. Thank you again for your recommendation, we do value it...

Thank you for a wonderful homely accomodation. Long and tiring as conference was, coming back to relax at Knightsbury reminded of home which made the whole trip bearable. Thank you for a warm and homely accommodation.

I have just returned from a 6 night stay. A very charming and traditional bed and breakfast, quiet, really helpful & friendly staff and great breakfast. Location was the only negative aspect as there is limited public transport to the main city attractions so you will need a car or get a taxi to get around.

Mum and I stayed over to attend a wedding in Cape Town. The location of the guesthouse is superb, within easy travelling distance to Cape Town International airport, and also within walking distance to restaurants. Knight bury is set in a quiet area, with a beautiful garden, and decorated in an English country look. Our twin room was extremely comfortable...

Once again, on behalf of Knightsbury Guesthouse, I would like to apologise to you for making you feel uncomfortable and appearing to be hostile to you. I was asleep when you buzzed and should have tried harder to be more alert and friendly. I do sincerely hope you will forgive me. In the morning, I was concerned about the security...
