Service was super. Utah and Clark were helpful and informative. Couldn't have asked for more. Breakfast choices were plentiful and the quality was excellent. Good restaurants close by were recommended by Utah and Clark. Would happily stay again for a longer period

We spent 5 nights in this superb guesthouse in an attractive Victorian building with small courtyards and seating areas. The bedroom was beautiful and well appointed. Breakfast was good with a choice of fruit, yoghourts, breads etc. and a made to order cooked breakfast. What made Tintagel special however was the personal attention from the staff. From the friendly welcome...

Perfect location for exploring Cape Town and within easy reach of Table Mountain. A couple of good restaurants within walking distance if you don't wish to go into the city in the evening. Very clean, cool and elegant. Loved eating breakfast outside under the vines. Staff very friendly and helpful. Some traffic noise to be expected as in city location,...

I along with two friends booked and stayed in two rooms at Tintagel for 3 nights at the end of April. Clark and Utah were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms are big and spacious with every amenity that you require. I have no hesitation in recommending the establishment to anyone and will certainly use the facility...

My sister and I recently stayed at Tintagel during our stay in Cape Town. This guesthouse was quaint, charming, well maintained and comfortable. However, what really stood out was the kindness of the staff and the service we received. On our first day, we were warmly greeted by the owner and manager at breakfast (it's included and hits the spot)....

Excellent accomodation in a beautiful, stylish house from ca. 1880. Very friendly and helpful staff and owner. Very good breakfast. Good location (some restaurants and supermarkets nearby, not far from Compnay Gardens).

My husband and I stayed at Tintagel for three days. It was an oasis in the heart of a bustling city. The hosts, especially Utah , could not have been more welcoming, providing tea on arrival, booking restaurants and sees sting places to visit and travel routes. The room, indeed the guesthouse, was full of antique furniture and you could...

We stayed at the Tintagel for 5 nights at the beginning of our stay mid-February and our last night early March and could not have been more pleased. The Tintagel was originally two properties and has been very tastefully renovated by its architect owner, Ivan. Clarke and Utah are the two front of house young men who do their jobs...
