Gruezi Zürich, and many thanks for your reassurance that we are offering and delivering great value for your money - this is exactly what we strive for. We are sorry that we cannot offer car parking on the premises, but there are plenty of parking spaces around the guesthouses in our safe neighborhood Tamboerskloof. We also always recommend to our...

This was our second stay there. We knew things had changed, we knew the previous owners had sold, and in such cases one is always sceptical at first. We needn't be! The new owners have brought Trevoyan to yet another level, with all the rooms completely and tastefully redecorated. It has now this cosiness, this warmth, this "olde worlde" kind...

Trevoyant Guest House is a nice place to stay in Cape Town: quiet, but only 10 minutes walk from Long Street. It has been recently renovated. The rooms are spacious and well equiped. Garden and pool are well kept and invite to relax.

Good day Johan, We are very sorry to read that you had a bad stay with us. Your first complaint is about our breakfast times and it is right that our regular breakfast time is between 08:00 and 10:00. If guests leave our guesthouse before 08:00 and let us know the day before, we are always happy to prepare a...

Lovely guesthouse with table mountain view and nicely decorated rooms, but our room was small and right next to the breakfast area and had the window where everyone passed by. If you go there make sure to book one of the superior rooms, although it might be quite expensive compared it other beautiful guesthouses in the same area.

Great location, accommodation and service. I would have given five stars if it were not for the facts that there is only street parking (in an area well-known for car break-ins - we used to live close by some years ago), and no air conditioning in the room, which is strange and uncomfortable in Cape Town where the summer temperatures...
