This guest house is set close to Table Mountain and has amazing views of the cliffs. The front looks out over the city and the early morning view is incredible. The rooms are luxurious, spotlessly clean and spacious with comfortable beds and air-conditioning or heating as required. The breakfast bar had a great variety of cereals, breads and fruit. Eggs...

This was our first and certainly not our last trip to SA. We stayed at the end of our trip for 7 days in this B&B. It was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. There is simply no more to add tot this. People from all countries - "Unite and go to B&B De tafelberg".

I have stayed here 3 times in the past. I would not even consider staying somewhere else when in Cape Town. Rooms, communal space, hosts, location, views,...all are fantastic.

Great B&B well located in Cape Town. My room was small, with no bath (shower only) but had great views of the mountain and the harbour. I stayed here for business and had to leave for meetings quite early every day, so didn't really get an opportunity to have breakfast, which was a pity because it looked great!

We stayed in so many wonderful guesthouses that I can't even pick a favorite but de Tafelberg in Cape Town might be it. Ann and Kris (the owners) were extremely helpful in setting up dinners for us in advance, calling cabs, and giving us advice on what to see in Cape Town. De Tafelberg is located in the Oranjezicht area...

Ann and Kris are wonderful people. Each year when we visit Cape Town, we stay at their Guesthouse. We have been their many times. Each time it feels like coming home. They make you feel part of the family.
