We stayed for four nights and had a wonderful time. Trevoyan is close enough to walk to some great restaurants and not too far from the city center.

This is a real jewel. I loved the decor, breakfast was made to order, everyone was very helpful and friendly. It is up on the hill a little ways, but is easy to get to and has great access to Table Mountain. I hope I can return to Cape Town some day and I will stay here if I do....

Eddie and Dominique were very friendly and welcoming. It's was a really lovely guest house, but it was windy when we were there and there was a lot of banging and creaking in the night.
