We are from Mozambique and loved our trip. We have great beaches but Cape Town exceeded our expectations.The hotel was perfect for our group, we were in close rooms to each other, rooms decent size. We can’t fault anything, for the price it was good service, good location and friendly staff.

My daughter and I just spent a week in Cape Town and a highlight for us was Mountview Spa and Guest House. Our room was very nice -- well appointed, comfortable mattress and very clean. The breakfast is very tasty -- an assortment of cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, advocado, breads and muffins, and deli meats, coffee and juice AND eggs... More

Spent a week at this lovely boutique guest house. Spotlessly clean and modern facilities. Lovely breakfast, everything you could want to set you up for the day. Excellent ladies looking after us all under the watchful eye of Joe and his gorgeous dog Beaumont. Easy access into the city and waterfront. Thank you Joe. 😀

However, if there was one thing I would change is the very noisy plumbing that woke me up several times and at times it gets slightly noisy but otherwise a... More

Great BAndB. Not sure about Spa part of name? Rooms were nice maybe a bit tight. But all and all great value for cost. Excellent staff and good food. Parking is tricky if u rent a car. Street parking so had to walk a bit a couple of times to parking spot. Central location.

Wonderful reception and intro to Cape Town and surrounds from Joe, friendly staff. Good quality facilities and rooms, aircon are a bargain.Great affordable restaurants down the road. Seapoint is very central to everything, walk down to beaches, cab ride to city and V&A, away from the hussle and buzz but close enough to enjoy it. Do confirm your arrival time... More
