My daughter and I were made to feel welcome and comfortable during our 7 night stay at the Cape Riviera Guesthouse.

Good located. Near to the center of Cape Town and the table mountain (by car). Staff is very friendly and polite. Nice rooms. Very clean. Don't go to eat at the steak house near by. Perfect start of our honeymoon.

In need of some care and attention. The guest house was not particularly clean & the pool was unusable due to dirty water & no filtration. The location is not great, and we would not book this place again.

We had a very pleasant greeting and our room was very comfortable. However, after a very successful and nice, hot breakfast on the first morning, it began to deteriorate. One morning we had to wait a very long time for our cooked food, the toast didn't arrive until half way through and the food was nearly cold, I also had...
