Good service, excellent staff and wonderful views. The owners were very helpful and hospitable and made you feel very welcome.
The need to use local taxis to get to the Waterfront or the downtown. Taxi services variable.
Views were lovely as it's up on a hill. Breakfast freshly cooked was great ,staff efficient . Owners very friendly and helpful. Very comfortable ,pleasant, homely and quiet .
Didn't like the location because needed to get a taxi everywhere. Too far from main thoroughfare. Most taxis didn't know where it was and fares varied a lot. It was possible to take shortcuts walking towards waterfront but as I was alone I didnt do that . When I returned at night my friends came with me.
Fantastic view, great location, very helpful and friendly hosts. Good value!
We felt at home, arriving early and greeted by Aissa who guided us through what we needed to know.The honesty bar is a nice touch and you can relax in a comfortable lounge area. You never tire of looking at the view over Cape Town.
My husband suffered a knee injury shortly before our arrival, and it made us very aware of how many slopes and steps there were, preventing us getting out and about as much as usual. Access was difficult, but taxis are plentiful.
The clean modernism that was open to the refreshing view.
Blue Gum Tree Hill Guest House is the perfect place to stay as a solo, female traveller in Cape Town. A safe haven, the views over the city are spectacular, the accommodation is tastefully, the food is wonderful, and the two sisters who run the place are incredibly friendly and helpful. I stayed for a week and am already planning a return visit. Book early!
Great view to waterfront, nice accomodation, good support from staff to schedule cape town turist tour.
Nothing to declare.
The owner arranged all our transport needs, allowed us to remain in our room until 4:00pm before catching the cab she ordered to take us to the airport. Breakfast excellent combined with a tremendous view.We would book again for our next visit to Cape Town
- Location - Swimming pool - Garage - Housekeeper (very friendly and available on help us planning the days)
Stunning views At home atmosphere
This is such a beautiful place with a central location even if it is on the edge of the hill. Clean, comfy bed, good breakfast, very nice manager and staff. And on top of all that - the spectacular view of the city.
Lovely room, beautiful view of cape town. Breakfast was varied including cooked, fruit, bread and cereals. Friendly owner very willing to give advice and help. overall great stay!
The Owner in so nice and helpfull!! very nice view
the only problem is that you need cabs all the time
Aissa was a wonderful hostess, the guest house was charming and comfortable and the view spectacular. Highly recommended-a home away from home.
The owner was really helpful whit everything from booking tee times for golf to suggest and book very nice restaurant's. Great breakfast. The penthouse we had was outstanding whit the balcony overlooking Cape town. The stay at Bluegum Hill was far over expectation and one of the main reason was the owners personally touch and service mind. If you are tired of ordinary hotel and want something personnel whit good service we can highly recommend this place.
Everything - The View The Room The personalised service.
Stunning and spectacular view. Great accommodation. Very friendly and helpful people.
Outstanding staff. Beautiful view.
Single room was very small.
Nice Location, spacious room, very friendly staff, next time in CPT again
Aissa is a gem of a host. Apartment 17C was perfect. Nice living space, a balcony with sweeping views of Cape Town over to Robben Island and the convenience of using the guest house facilities if desired.
Great view of Green Point and Waterfront. Excellent location - quick and easy drive to town, waterfront, hiking spots, and major freeways. Came with parking space. Room was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the patio and Honor Fridge.
No complaints. Some rooms seemed a bit small for two people.
Fabulous location overlooking Cape town, added bonus of splash pool ,lovely room , owner and staff all friendly and informative to allow you get the best out of your holiday :)
I have seen more than a dozen guesthouses in Cape Town and this is clearly one of my favourites. Just to mention a few of the highlights: It is quiet and cosy, has a fantastic view over Greenpoint (yes, it is on the hillside), delicious breakfast, nice staff, Roeline...
The Bluegum Hill is the loveliest guest house I stayed in, with a beautiful atmosphere, cozy, perfect view and the most kind and friendly owner and staff. I had a perfect stay there and I can wholeheartedly recommend it!
