I love the natural theme of the B&B. I enjoyed the breakfast (organic), in my opinion the B&B promotes healthy living and is environmental friendly. Will definitely come back! Keep up the good work, thank you for the warm environment

I selected this accommodation based on the reviews I had read here on Trip Advisor, as well as on their 4 star accommodation status, but was a little disappointed, and felt that it was more like a 3 star venue.

We had a great stay at African Queen Quest House, recommended by a friend of us, it's a perfect location to discover Cape Town area. The apartment is very complete en well decorated. The breakfast was lovely, even with some small decoration on Valentine day ;-).

Absolutely fantastic guest house. Not too far from the CBD but far enough to let you feel like your on holiday. Marc Bakker and Marjolijn Botje stop at nothing to make you feel special at their guest house.
