This is one of my favourite places to stay in Cape Town. The location is perfect, the breakfast superb, service wonderful and real value for money. I asked them for safe indoor parking and it was organised without delay, as well as to have breakfast at half past six instead of 7 and this was also accommodated without any problem.

Staff were amazingly friendly and helpful and Owen recommended a dinner option that was so good we went back twice! Easy ten minute walk to the City Sightseeing bus stop and staff...

Gorgeous place to stay and so central - the breakfasts can't be surpassed. My family and I really enjoyed the friendly and helpful staff. The ambience is sophisticated and the views from the balcony area are delightful. I highly recommend staying at this stylish B&B whilst you are visiting Cape Town.

Sadly we didn't even have 24 hours at Cape Riviera but for the time we were there, I was really impressed - our room was fantastic, the staff couldn't have been friendlier and the breakfast was one of the best I had while I was in South Africa.

This is our third visit to Cape Riviera over quite a number of years and we have never been disappointed - nor do we expect to be. The service is great and they are happy to assist in any way possible - always nice to meet Owen when he is there. Travelled this time with our 30 year old son...
