My father, niece and myself had 3 days in Cape Town. Our flights were severely delayed - and we did not arrive until late evening - not a problem for Ann and Kris. Location - 5 mins drive from the Cable Car for Table Mountain, 5 mins from the Mount Nelson - nice and central, clean and also quiet. We...

Ann and Kris are wonderful people. Each year when we visit Cape Town, we stay at their Guesthouse. We have been their many times. Each time it feels like coming home. They make you feel part of the family.

Anna and Chris are wonderful hosts in this centrally located guest house. A breakfast that will last you through lunch, beautiful view over the town, pool and well appointed rooms make this a great place to stay.

We stayed for 4 nights in Feb. After a 3 hour drive fron Gansbaai, we arrived and were shown to our ' de luxe' rooms. They were by means de -luxe, we had a room on the top floor, which was clean and nice enough, although the bathroom was nice, the bedroom was a bit tired. Our freinds shown to...

This felt like home away from home. Friendly and very helpful owners, great breakfast food, clean and comfortable room, breakfast on the verandah, well-located close to town. I can't stress enough how helpful owners Ann and Kris were with connections, even to medical services, suggestions for dining, directions to our daily destinations. Lovely people.

We stayed at De Tafelberg for the fifth or sixth time in February. We have recommended this guesthouse to many friends and everyone has been as impressed as we are. The beautiful house has been renovated by Kris to be luxurious and homey at the same time - quite a trick. The atmosphere is friendly, welcoming and professional. Ann and...

We enjoyed the warm hospitality of Ann and Kris in this beautiful house. The Tafelberg Guesthouse is very well situated with a wonderful view on Cape Town city from the splendid terrace. We were very lucky to stay in the luxury 'suite' with Cape Town view, a heavenly kingsize bed and the double! shower. The breakfast is legendary, served on...

Situated in a residential quiet area very near to the city centre we enjoyed the spectacular views from our room, during breakfast (sumptious, count extra time) and a relaxing stay at the swimming pool. Inside, you get submerged in the warm, colonial contemporary style. Great and impeccable furnished rooms and a huge living/reading-room where one can easily spend several hours...
