again, it was a wonderful and perfect stay at the Cape Riviera. It was our fourth stay at this wonderful place with an amazing view over Capetown and the waterfront. Everybody of the group enjoyed the stay. We will come back for sure!

Our room had amazing view of Table Mountain from on side and across to V & A Waterfront from the other. You can pre book on site parking -but be quick, there are only 2 spots. We...

Friendly reception. Disappointed that I had no view of the harbour/ ocean as I had expected. Lovely room décor, but TV is dated, there was no remote for the TV and the bath was dirty. Also a friendly note that diabetics need sweetener and cannot have sugar. I would like to suggest that you offer sweetener as well as sugar....

The staff could not have been more helpful. Nothing a problem and the constantly changing "breakfast special" made a refreshing change to the usual "full english" which was also on offer. The position of the guest house was within easy walking distance to the "hop on-off" bus stop. The view from room 10 is superb and sitting out on the...

We visited Cape Riviera at the end of our beautiful but exhausting 3 week tour true South Africa. We hoped for a relaxing and luxurious stay at this 4 star establishment. Fortunately we were not disappointed. The staff was kind and helpful. Breakfast was freshly prepared and each morning there were 2 or 3 creative specials to choose from. The...

We stayed at the Cape Riviera for 4 nights in Sep '14 and had an amazing time! This guest house is in an ideal location, and being right by the reservoir always made it a great landmark to find where we were. The views were amazing - we were spoilt in staying in room 10 - this room had the...

We stayed only one night. Very nice hotel, nice room, good breakfast. Short distance to Tafelberg and also city center. Definitely a recommendation. Must be very nice in summer when you can enjoy the pool.

We stayed at Cape Riviera at the end of a long road trip. It was an experience, as the art deco interior made it very interesting. They were very accommodating as we had a car, they provided a garage to park it in upon our request. The breakfasts were excellent, and the staff was helpful and friendly. All of the...
