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 !!!

Was during a heat wave and airconditioning would have been nice.
The Hosts of The Colonial are unbelievably friendly and helpful. They give your stay with them a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Breakfast ist great, perfect location to walk around the city, it is very safe and uncomplicated.
Good location, comfortable stay, friendly and warm welcome. Would stay again and recommend this accommodation.
The owners were friendly, helpful, and treated us like old friends. The guesthouse is walking distance from so many restaurants, which made an evening walk to have something to eat or drink an attractive option.
Great staff very friendly, lovely property in colonial style in very good location with walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops, the breakfast was excellent with home-made banana bread and fresh fruit salad and more
