Clean comfortable place. Some street noise but we are in a busy area. The staff was helpful and friendly. Good value. The breakfast was a real treat. Would recommend to friends and would stay here again.

It wasn't our first and won't be our last time there. All the staff are soo friendly and helpful. It's unbelievable. People, stop complaining and start experiencing the positive aspects of a guest house! Are you right at the beach? No. But it's just a five minute walk. You see the ocean? Yes you can. But what is it all...

The sweetest guesthouse will become my no. 1 spot to stay when in Cape Town. Lovely staff, good area to stay at, always interesting guests to meet at community rooms. The rooms are clean, the facilities what you expect in a guesthouse where you're welcome and should feel like staying at home. :-)
