I recently had the privilege of staying at Cape Riviera. The Guesthouse is perfectly located in the beautiful suburb of Oranjezicht at the foot of Table Mountain with spectacular views. Its location allows for very easy access to many things, but still gives the feeling of "home" as it's not located in the city. The charming atmosphere, décor and building...

The Cape Riviera is the prefect place to stay when visiting Cape Town. Its location is wonderful, in a quiet and safe neighbourhood overlooking the city. The staff could not be more helpful and accommodation. The cooked breakfasts are excellent. And the rooms are very comfortable.

An old colonial style house, nice rooms and very friendly staff. A great view over Cape Town from the balcony. Cents of town/waterfront can be reached in 10 minutes by taxi. The whole "public area" of the house is in the old colonial style, well maintained and you feel yourself gliding back into these old times. The manager of the...

Cape Riviera offers much in this special location close to Table Mountain , but within walking distance of Kloof St and The Waterfront. Camps Bay is a very short drive away . Rooms are very spacious , some are double aspect with spectacular views of the mountains and the waterfront. Breakfast is delicious . After a day of sightseeing it...

Our first visit to South Africa couldnt start better. Very helpful staff, good location and perfect breakfast. Value for money! Nice garden to rest after sightseeing in Cape Town and 2 pools to help you cooling down.

We were very happy with our one night stay this cosy place. There are two different small pools, the room and bathroom with both tub and shower were spacious (shower was the largest I've ever seen) and the staff were all really lovely. Breakfast was yummy and even too large for me who is pregnant!

We really enjoyed our stay and would have stayed longer but there wasn't availability. The place is beautiful, with old Cape charm and the manager and her staff were warm, friendly and attentive. We'll definitely stay here again when we return.

This B&B has a lot of charm. We arrived late in the evening and enjoyed sitting out on the parlor veranda looking out at the city enjoying some wine (available for purchase). We had rooms in the main house so there weren't any views of the city and the rooms were smaller than those in the newer building behind the...

I stayed for one night at this establishment but had a pleasant experience stating there. I'd gladly come again. The rooms have small private courtyards where one can relax - exactly what I needed after back-to-back business meetings. The guest house is pretty quite - the decor and rooms are quite nice and up-there with the botique hotels - much...
