Breakfast was freshly done every morning, and the terrace featured a great view of the Table Mountain. A really nice area: street was quiet at night, quite a few incredibly nice breakfast cafes...

This really is a wonderful B&B. We first stayed here in 2009 and were so impressed that when we recently had the chance to come back to Cape Town it was the obvious choice - and it certainly did not disappoint.

Stayed 4 nights and very much enjoyed it. High quality accommodation but with a cosy personal touch. Good location for easy access to Table mountain and main routes into the city. Walking distance to good bars and restaurants on Long street in good safety.

The four uniquely decorated rooms are equipped with air-conditioning and heaters, an electronic wall safe, hairdryer, a range of toiletries and most importantly comfortable beds! Complimentary wi-fi and safe on street parking is available. A hearty hot and cold breakfast is served every morning to set you up for the day either inside or outside in the charming ground-floor greenery courtyard. This homely Tamboerskloof Bed and Breakfast provides your respite from a busy day and is run by owner, Ruth Parsons, who extends a warm, personal welcome.
