Location is super-- good restaurants near by, many attractions close. The inn keeper, Rod, is very pleasant and helpful..excellent service. Nice continental breakfast, with fresh muffins...
Nothing...all was good.....we stayed twice on our trip to So Africa.....
The breakfast The dirty sponge on the sill in the bathroom The musty smell in the room
I liked the kitchen facilities and they were very helpful in answering our questions about Cape Town.
The staff were friendly and accommodating, the facilities were clean and the location was amazing as we had to be at the hospital every day which is right around the corner.
The TV's in the rooms may be a bit outdated, I know you don't go on holiday to watch tv but for us it was a bit disappointing to have to watch SABC.
No heating system, wooden floor is very cranky and makes lots of noise.
We like very much the room, the staff and the location!
Very friendly manager, helpful in arranging further plans, informative. Nice atmosphere and possibility to meet some interesting other travelers,
Quiet street but handy to restaurants, gardens, main thoroughfares etc. We had the front twin room with a balcony - perfect for our needs.
Tania was super efficient and the room was squeaky clean. Very well situated in Cape Town and we will stay at Cape Colonial Guest House again. Thanks.
No desk/facility to work in the room.
The location suited me. Linen was fresh. Reception was fine.
Breakfast staff was not trained well. Room had too view plugs.
Room was comfortable and the reception to the guest house warm and friendly.
There is no staff on site at night and we were the only room. Felt a bit nervous.
Great location close to Kloop Street action. Nice big room with veranda overlooking the quiet residential Street. Safe neighborhood. Free parking in the street.
It was quiet and centrally situated. The furnishings were very comfortable especially the bedding.
As it was winter I felt a small heating device would have been helpful.
Nice bed linen, period property in a safe and quiet neighbourhood, close to everything. Helpful staff and simply warmly recommended for your stay in Cape Town if you're not a backpacker or party animal.
The staff where very friendly. The location was ideal to get everywhere. Walking distance to brilliant cafes and Restaurants. Nice vibe!
The location is central and easy to get around.
The room standard was not up to my expectations. The stay was ok though. Breakfast was lousy. No dstv, at this day and age?
Lovely owner, Sabine, who was helpful and friendly. Quaint and without the usual claustrophobic feel in a small guesthouse! Stylish and slightly rustic decor adds to the charm. Lovely breakfast. Excellent value for money. Would definitely go back.
Sabine, the owner, could not have been friendlier and more helpful. The breakfasts were excellent and the room clean and spacious with a comfortable bed.
We had a room on the ground floor which was a little noisy in the morning as it was close to the kitchen.
Casual, friendly !!!
