I loved Varneys. Phillip, Thierry and Emlyn were exceptional hosts. Every request was followed through with, my room was meticulously cleaned every day, they called me cabs and made restaurant bookings whenever I needed them. On the final day (I was there for 16 nights for a university masters program) when wind prevented me yet again making it to the top of Table Mountain, gorgeous Thierry drove me and my friends to the top of Signal Hill, where we got a 360 degree view, took plenty of pics, and marvelled at the majesty of Cape Town. If you are looking for a grand old boutique guest house experience, that is close to the centre of town and even closer to the waterfront and V and A, VArneys is just great. It really was the proverbial home away from home. Oh, and if you like a good morning run or walk, Green Point Park is just across the road.
Can think of anything. Really, a perfect boutique guest house.
Phillip was a great host and gave great recommendations for local restaurants and activities. There is a great self help honesty bar so you can get water whenever you like, rooms are tidy and comfortable and there is a sweet little balcony to have a drink on. Breakfast is also good- simple and filling.
The pool had a crack when we were there so it was empty
Very clean. Comfortable. Safe area. Conveniently located between V&A Waterfront and Sea Point. Several restaurants nearby. Owners and staff were extremely attentive, friendly, helpful. Experienced no problems or complaints whatsoever. Highly recommended. Would stay here again in a heart beat. Can't thank Phillip, Thierry, and Emlin enough for their attention.
Everything was perfect.
The location is excellent, the owners Phiilip and Thiery were amazing! Gave us a lot of info and even took my boyfriend to doctor when he needed to get antibiotics! Very clean and great staff. We loved it!!! We felt like family!!
All the little things that made my stay so relaxed.
Super nice and helpful owners. Great internet service. Quiet area, on Main rd.
Decor Friendly Service Location Easy drive to airport, Cape Town CBD, Walking distance to Green point stadium
Hosts are the nicest. Close to downtown and to the V&A where there is a bunch of touristic options.
We would get interesting hints to get around in CPT. Lovely location, 20 minutes on foot from the Waterfront. WiFi worked perfectly.
The owners were knowledgeable and gregarious. The room and facilities were fantastic. The location was great for getting to sites in and out of town. I would return again and recommend the place to others.
Philippe and the staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The guesthouse is even more beautiful than on the photos. Our room were spacious, clean and very stylish. The area is very quiet and peaceful even though it is situated close to many main attractions. The perfect place to stay if you want to experience Cape Town. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family.
It was great staying at Varneys. The location is nearby the V&A Waterfront. The breakfast is delicious, and Philipp, the owner, gives great recommendations for restaurants and trips. We would definitely come back again.
The property is delightful and well appointed. We felt very safe walking to some very good restaurants nearby. At our pace, the Waterfront is about 25 minutes walk away but a taxi will only cost R25. Philip and Thierry are good hosts who you can rely on for good advice as to where to go and what to do.
Very well located. Quite and safe zone. Just about 10 minutes walking from V&A Waterfront. Staff very friendly and helpful. I faced some problems with my car but thanks to their help I got it fixed and I managed to drive back home. Thank you Philip, Thiery and Em.
There is no enough space to park every guests cars inside. Nevertheless, given the tranquility and safety of the place your car is safe parked on the road where there is plenty of space.
The rooms and toilets were cleaned daily, except for 1 January. There's a/c in the rooms, which makes sleeping comfortable on warm nights. Croissant was excellent.
The breakfast buffet was average and the freshness of some of the foods were suspect. No notice that housekeeping service was not available 1st January. In one of the rooms we booked, the bathroom smelled like drainage and the sink seemed clogged, as the water was going down slowly. In another room, the refrigerator was not working.
very friendly owners and staff. Lovely and spacious rooms in an old house tucked away from the city noise.
