Excellent and amazing as always. They never disappoint. The host called me prior and offered help beyond the call of duty. The bedroom was lovely and clean and well serviced. When I arrived after a very long day I found the host there and a lovely plate of food.

Thanks very much for such friendly and welcoming support during my last minute visit to Cape Town, which has made the trip the easiest and relaxing one. All the tour booking, logistics arrangement, and local recommendations are truly the best experience. I would recommend the Guesthouse to anyone who would like to visit Cape Town with a homey stay.

A colonial style bungalow with large well appointed rooms in a central and safe location with many good restaurants within strolling distance. Very friendly, helpful staff and owner. The only drawback was the presence of some traffic noise at night.

We had a perfect stay here. The location is brilliant, plenty of great restaurants around. The owner and family were extremely kind and helpful and the staff were all lovely. Fabulous breakfast. Knocks spots off the large waterfront hotels - a great place, indeed

We had a very nice stay at Tintagel Guesthouse. Our room was nicely furnished and equipped and squeaky clean. Very good breakfast. Staff very helpful, friendly and engaging. Secure parking and a fantastic, convenient location near restaurants, groceries and quite walkable to town center. Highest recommendation.

Fabulous guest house....a real 'must' for a Cape Town visit. The staff are so very welcoming and knowledgeable. Really well appointed room, spacious and comfortable, refreshed daily. The thoughtful personal touches like sherry, chocolates and small packs of tissues really made it for us!
