    Loved our stay at the Tintagel Guest house. Big comfortable bedrooms, immaculately clean. Wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful, they happily arranged dinner reservations for us. Lovely breakfast, outside in the courtyard on good days, inside when it became windy. Secure off road parking. Great location, close to Kloof Street, Long Street and an easy drive or inexpensive taxi to all the main city centre attractions and the Table Mountain Cable Car station.

    The guesthouse is warm, inviting and quite spacious. It hosts everything (amenities) you could possibly need for a trip away from home. The outside area was great for a morning cuppa and some quiet time, making for a peaceful transition into a busy day. In addition to the wonderful space, Trevor and Glenda were such great hosts, transparent and accommodating to our needs before and during our stay.

    Lovely and well appointed establishment. Excellent location to city centre and surrounding attractions, while close to airport in terms of driving time. Corinne was an outstanding host and gave us the full run down of the accommodation and facilities and took us on a tour of the house and garden making us well acquainted with everything. House is large and spacious with plenty of space for privacy and decor very tasteful and elegant. Well maintained property. Quiet neighbourhood. Definitely will return when next in Cape Town.

    Cheviot Place is a great place in a very quiet neighborhood. The house is very charming and you can walk to places like the Waterfront or Green Point Park. There are a large number of restaurants within a 10 minute walk. On the other hand, James is a great host and has given us many good tips for restaurants, excursions, etc. In summary, Cheviot Place is a highly recommended place to spend a few quiet days in Cape Town in a family atmosphere that makes you feel at home.

    I stayed at 10 different guest houses during my trip in South Africa and Maartens Guesthouse is definitely my favourite! His warm personality, wicked sense of humour and attention to detail really makes us feel at home. He’s not only a great host but also a very kind friend. Thank you for having us!

    Great location in a quiet area, ideal for the airport, city and other destinations. Very relaxed, non-pretentious guest house. Excellent cooked breakfast, the 'kitchen sink' omelette is specially recommended. Kevin and Hermann were very welcoming and great hosts.

    The guest house is the friendliest place to stay. Zak and Fabio are the best hosts who fully commit to giving guests a great time. The location is excellent and in a safe neighbourhood close to good bars and restaurants. The building is really quaint, retaining its original features. Let’s not forget the breakfast! Sensational offerings with lots of wonderfully home made bread , jams and cakes with loads of fresh fruit.

    Such a find. Loved everything about this boutique small hotel - lovely room, helpful hosts, great location, delicious breakfast in a beautiful garden. It’s very close to the hop on-off bus (by the Winchester Hotel), a super cheap 5 min Uber to waterfront or lovely waterfront walk (40 mins), fab local restaurants. really nice to be just outside the CBD, but close enough to get there easily. Highly recommend
