Stay at Walden House
My stay was very nice and the staff was very pleasant and helpful at all time. The room was very clean and neat the only issue I had was there was no hot water in the shower. Overall stay though was good.

Perfect Tamboerskloof hideaway with great ambience
The service was very capable & friendly! My room was very nice and the bed also excellent. Even though close to restaurants and some main roads in the area, the house is quiet. First night huge noise from next door neighbours. Young crowd. The standard of cleanliness can be upped. Generally happy. Will recommend it.

The perfect home base.
The staff were very friendly and were quick to answer every question I had. The location is great and makes for easy access anywhere in Cape Town, while the B&B itself is adorable with a lovely pool and very comfy rooms. Definitely, a place to go back to!

A gem
This is a beautiful guest house with a great view of Table Mountain. The service was excellent. I had the honeymoon suite, which was lovely. I would definitely stay here again.
