location an friendlyness of staff
needs a renovation!
The place is amazing. The owners are very nice.
An extra table for breakfast could be good when all the rooms are rented
Martin was a great host for my 5 day stay. Special thanks to Banda for all his work and careful attention to details. I was never found wanting for anything at this accommodation. breakfasts were amazing. Service was 5 star, Martin and Banda's knowledge of the area and reccomendations were great. I hope I can visit again soon!
It was very windy first 2 days...
peace and quiteness. Good service.
there were no wifi in the aloe room. Not all the dstv channels were available.
Suggest a bit more maintenance and different towels.
I liked everything, most of all, I would like to say a MASSIVE thankyou to Banda who looked after me so wonderfully. The room was very nicely done, nice pictures, four poster bed, decent tv channels, chocolates, more than enough towels, candles and matches, great big bath I could have swam in and a lovely shower. Breakfast was great, cooked by Bandas wife, lovely scrambled egg, choice of cereal, juice, coffee, toast, jams etc. Felt extremely welcome and extremely well looked after. Fantastic value for money and felt very safe as a solo traveler despite being on ground level. Also, no curfew time as you find many of the other places have, you have a gate key and are just asked to make sure the gate shuts behind you when you come in. Very chilled and relaxed.
Couldnt fault it really, perhaps only thing is that being on the ground floor, the Protea Room, the headlights from the other guests returning shine in your room, but if your not asleep - not a prob.
Friendlyness of staff and hosts
Room not well equiped. Cold water tap in basin so tight hardly able to open / close. Door to balcony also extremely difficult to open / close. Wardrobe too small for stay longer that 1 day. TV in room very small
Joseph was a gem....
Good service from the staff. Magnificant view and pleasant art gallery. Shower was comfortable.
Great hospitality with team ensuring you feel "at home"
The Staff Bandi & Janette made me feel so at home. What gems they are! If only I had staff like them.
the staff was very helpful, facilities were great!
my trip was too short :)
A great location, wonderful views and nice people.
Warm welcome, unobtrusive staff, good recommendations re local eateries
Hout Bay is a good place from which to visit Cape Point, via the lovely Chapman's Drive. The pictures/photos on the walls of the guest house are by the owner and are very attractive/interesting. The guest house is friendly and you are definitely made to feel at home.
If you are coming by car - the only practical way - the drive is very steep and guarded by a electric gate. Hout Bay has no centre and so the guest house is in a residential area and not close to shops or the beach.
very friendly welcome and homely feel which is always nice after a long travel.
slippery shower floor, I would suggest an anti-slip spray before someone gets hurt (can be found at most tiling places)
Lovely friendly staff and very scenic location. Clean and superbly presented.
Bright and airy in a wonderful position on the edge of the valley. Friendly, helpful staff.
Our room was very hot and we couldn't find a remote for the fan. Everything else was great.

Our stay at the Thandekayo was fantastic to say the least!!!!! Anita and Martin Osner are wonderful hoasts who really made us feel welcome and confortable, and Banda and his lovely wife Janet were so gracious in looking after us that we have already decided to go back next year!!!!! The Art Gallerie Guest house is tastefully decorated and full of natural light that compliment the amazing photographs displayed all around. Breakfast was delicious especially Janets eggs which were tasty in every form, I recommend the poached ones on toast wish mushrooms yummy!!! Our room was cosy and light, very spacious with a nice big free standing bath and a stone floored shower. There were also the 2 beautiful dogs Snowy and Fudge whom we made friends with that greeted us every morning and every evening!! To say we were sad to leave is an understatement, we will most certainly return next year!!!
I liked everything about my stay. We were treated very well and it was as if we werent even there so private it was. I was our honeymoon and we needed that time to feel like we were alone. Thank you.
That we needed to leave....wish I could have stayed longer.
FANTASTIC SPOT. WARM WELCOME. FRIENDLY HOSTS VIEWS TO DIE FOR.
