I stayed in the Blue room, and shared shower room and separate toilet with one other problem which was never a problem. Rooms serviced every day. Tea and coffee in room, satellite TV and free wifi. My breakfast times changed most days, sometimes outside their published times, but they always made sure I had something available.

Fawlty towers in Cape Town. Bruce is obsessed about his eggs in the morning, unnecessary electrical use and security.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad that you agree with my concern re Electricity wastage and security. We HAVE to try and save electricity to avoid blackouts in the area when the system is overloaded. It is also essential that our security is always 100% and that our guests feel safe at Valley Heights Guest House....
