    I really enjoyed the personal attention we got by the owners of the Guest House. They were very nice to us and took care of our every need. To top it all they had two lovely dogs which we befriended!!

    Fabulous

    The position just belowTable Mountain made it ideal for short hops to various venues around the City, yet when away from them it felt peaceful up above the City below with glimpses of the mountain behind and the bay in front. Service was friendly yet one also had the feeling that one could enjoy being left alone and not hassled all the time. The room was simple but comfortable, and it was nice to have seating in the dining room and veranda if one chose to sit and read out of the room.

    There was not enough off street parking for all the rooms, and my hire car was broken into when on the street outside overnight.

    the stay at this place was a little disaster for us. its really not very comfortable and i wouldnt go back. the place is a house and the room and bathroom were right next to the dining/eating area and all sound and noise carries through the house. the result is when you are in the bathroom its like you are in the dining area with the other guests - probably its the same for anyone eating in the dining area listening to showers and toilets being flushed. because of all the noise its impossible to sleep late - you get woken up when everyone turns up for breakfast at 8. also white see-thru curtains and a blind means lots of light whether you like it or not so as soon as the sun is up you are awake i.e. again, you cant sleep late. for some reason they keep knocking on your door as well so further lack of privacy. they dont clean the rooms properly. not enough soap in the bathroom - after 3 days you are wondering how you are supposed to shower. the breakfast is so bland we only ate once and preferred to eat out for breakfast. the woman running it is not very friendly or hospitable. she also informed us at 10.20 in the morning that checkout time is at 10 and the other guests are already here and would we mind clearing out - checkout time almost everywhere is 11-12 so it would have been good to be informed upfront. i think perhaps we were expected to read a list of rules and regulations on arrival. the tv didnt work but by the end of the stay that was the last thing we were worried about. overall its clean so staying is not a problem but it was so generally uncomfortable overall it was the worst place ive stayed in a long time and i travel a lot, so i took the trouble to give this review. i wouldnt go back, ever.
