“Excellent stay, great location”

Very lovely guest house with extremely friendly, flexible and helpful staff. Great location in central Cape Town, Camps Bay and Clifton within easy reach. Delicious breakfast, stylish rooms and shared spaces, loved the jarapego. Felt very welcome!

We found this little gem through trip advisor and we couldn't fault it. Location in a safe area and is within walking distance of most attractions and fab restaurants - try Ricks Place and Arnolds. Staff so helpful especially for first timers to the city and made helpful suggestions which we just right for us. We loved the breakfasts and the little extras - sherry and chocs - just makes it special. Would stop again!

My friends and I stayed at the Tintagel for 6 nights in October 2011. We absolutely loved the place! The breakfast is delicious and fresh, the rooms are clean, and pretty, the beds are comfy and we loved the little extra touches of coffee/tea, sherry and chocolate at the bedside! The location can't be beat as it is in walking distance to great cafes and restaurants, we felt safe walking in the area at night. We felt very at home here, especially with great hosts like Adri and Utah - they were both extremely helpful in booking tours and making suggestions on things to do. I have no doubt that if you choose to stay here, you will love it as much as I did!

I stayed in the Tintagel Guest House for one night in June 2011 and then for 8 nights in September 2011 on my way to and from St Helena. The welcome was warm and friendly, and Adri and Utah went out of their way to be helpful, even helping with some food shopping! They also booked tours for us and lent us guide books. And I learnt a lot about South Africa from them and from Ivan the owner who came in to chat over breakfast every day. The guest house is beautifully restored and the rooms large and comfortable with lovely white cotton sheets and snug duvets. Tea and coffee making facilities, plus carafe of port in every room. Bathroom had excellent shower and plenty of room to put toiletries - other hotels take note! Freshly cooked breakfast every day and a huge range of restaurants within easy and safe walking distance. And Bo Kaap, Company Gardens and the museum area are also close by. It may have reflected the season we stayed (low) but we were able to keep our rooms until we departed for the airport in the evening. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cape Town now!

Room Tip: Room 6 at the top of the stairs is light and airy.

Thank you for a wonderful review....you were our first St Helena guest and since your stay we have had two more guests en-route to this fascinating little island.
We do try our best to accommodate guests who have late flight departures (even in peak season)
Although it is not always possible to keep the room, we can offer luggage storage and a guest bathroom to freshen up before leaving Tintagel guesthouse.

We stayed at Tintagel our first night in Cape Town September 17, 2011. So many great restaurants within walking distance. The room we stayed in was lovely. Comfortable bed with first class linens. Amazing townhouse with off street parking. There was a bit of noise from the street but nothing overwhelming. Adri was a wonderful host who even provided us tips for the rest of our trip and an Atlas to help us find our way. The breakfast was amazing with fresh fruit and full english breakfast, We would definately stay here again when we return to Cape Town.
