We spent 11 nights at Hillcrest Manor Guesthouse. We were very pleased with our accomodation for the price that we paid. Room was big and the view from the balcony was incredible. Gerda the host was very helpful and made us stay so easy by arranging our trips. The location was nice and quiet but a bit far from beaches....

My husband and I stayed over at Hillcrest manor for the weekend. We were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful Gerda. Our room was lovely and comfortable. The place was neat, clean and very cosy. We had a lovely basket waiting on our bed. Our stay included a Peninsula Trip, where we toured the peninsula, specifically Cape Point and...

Gerda is a friendly, warm hostess who can't do enough for her guests. Hillcrest Manor is a piece of Victorian history in a good, quiet location. It offers easy access to most nearby attractions and easy access (Cape Town traffic permitting) to those further away.

Really well situated in a calm residential district within walking distance for the Bowl, the Waterfront and the table Mountain Hop-on-hop-off bus stop. Many restaurants with an easy stroll but the return walk is a bit of a climb. Car parking is easy. Gerda is a perfect and obliging hostes whose breakfast is substantial and will carry you well into...

Everything was very good. The view of Table Mountain is just amazing! Breakfast was delicious (loved the mushroom, tomato and cheese omelet).The only problem was that, even advising previously by e mail we would need a late check in (about 23 pm) when we arrived there was no one in the guest house to receive us. We spent half an...

This guesthouse is located in a very quiet area. Was a great stay. It is centrally located and access to Camps Bay, the city and the highways is easy. Just be aware that there a couple of stairs to walk to get to the rooms.

I spent almost 2 weeks in this guesthouse which is in an amaze neighborhood - really green and that gives u an outstanding view from table mountain. The manager that was on duty during my stay was kindly and polite. But something really unprofessional happened after almost 3 days that I left this place: the owner just sent an e-mail...

From Hillcrest Manor Guesthouse balcony you have an excellent view over Cape Town and to the Table Mountain. Alone this makes it worth to stay there. Sitting on the balcony and trinking a good South African red wine is a beatiful memory.
