What makes this delightful guest house is the staff! Such lovely ladies who prepare your breakfasts and lookafter your rooms, and the reception staff could not be more helpful . The breakfasts were delicious and cooked to order. We had 3 lovely days here and our rooms were on a raised extension at the back of the hotel with a...

Everyone was so helpful & happy & chatty! The lovely ladies in the kitchen were amazing! The staff in reception happily made phone calls, apts and reservations for us. It was a little dated, but quaint. And it has a cute little pool perfect to spend some time sunbathing!

A really lovely place with a comfortable bed and delicious breakfasts. Our bathroom was very small and we will request a bigger one if we return on another visit. A lovely feeling of history with beautiful antique furniture. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Dear Guest The Lodger, Thank you for your lovely feedback. All Fynbos staff appreciate your visit as special guest! Unfortunately we cannot enlarge bathrooms in this historically house. Some rooms have very big bathrooms and some smaller. But all is still comfortable for our guests. Kind regards, Fynbos Personnel and Owners.

If you want an ultra modern anonymous chain hotel, Fynbos is not for you. If you want cosy charm, excellent breakfast and helpful staff, you will be very happy. Rooms are comfortable and clean with efficient maid service. Ours (Room 2) was right beside reception and kitchen dining room but we were not bothered by any noise. We had several...

Dear Guest Di B, Thank you very much for an excellent feedback. You also have noticed that our rooms were acoustically treated with heavy wooden doors. The roofs and ceilings have isolating, durable material against heat and sound. Fortunately the swimming pool is 8m x 4m in a shady garden. Kind regards Personnel and Owners

Fynbos is very well situated in the lovely historic area, walking distance from the centre of town, the botanic gardens and the University. The Villa has guest rooms on the ground floor level facing the road, ( which is pretty quiet) and four on the first floor at the back over the car parking area. These rooms have small tables...

Coming to the end of our four night stay here and we've thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's really well placed for getting into town, the local restaurants and the tranquil botanical gardens which are just around the corner. The swimming pool is a very nice amenity and it's big enough to actually have a little swim in. The air conditioning is...

I spend one night at Fynbos Villa Guest House. The room was clean, bed comfortable, nice bathroom with little bottles of shampoo, body wash, and body lotion.
