We came into Cape Town for the first 3 days with the sun shining and high expectations of our accommodation. We were not disappointed, a gorgeous v&a with stunning views over Cape Town. We can see table mountain from another window (just). It's in a affluent area of Cape Town. About 1 mile away from both cable cars to get...

What a welcoming place after the flight into cape town: on one side you have the unbeatable view over Capetown, on the other side you have an amazing view over Tablemountain: can you ask for more? Your hosts will do everything to make you feel welcome and at home, breakfast is so delicious and the rooms are beautifully decorated.

Spent a wonderful time in this Guesthouse. Its situated above the city center. With a beautiful view of the city and also the Table Mountain. The owners are extremely friendly. Right from the beginning you feel like home. The rooms are lovely furnished. Breakfast is great. I highly recommend it.

Set on a steep and broad road in the mountainside suburb of Oranjezicht, De Tafelberg is far enough from town to be quiet (the road is a main road through the suburb but only gets a little busy at rush hour) and to have good views, especially of the mountain, even though rooms face the harbour. Yet it is only...

What a find! De Tafelberg is a lovely, homely, guest house a two minute drive from Kloof street. There was secure parking for our car. Our room was comparatively big, beautifully and tastefully decorated with a private balcony. Everything was pristine, clean fluffy towels were in abundance, and the shower with all condiments, hot just when you needed it. The...

We stay there from 9-12-2015 till 13-12-2015. It was a wonderfull stay, and Ann and the crew gave us a pleasant time in the Guesthouse. This is the place to stay in Cap Town. Clean place, good breakfast and good tips for dining places.

Having been disappointed with the accommodation last time we came to CT we were recommended here by our Travel Agent in UK who used to live locally. It was an excellent recommendation. It is near enough to town to get in easily, very near to Camps Bay and spectacularly located at the foot of Table Mountain with views right across...
