I would never set foot here again. I was booked here for a month, reception called me at 20:30 at night, telling me I needed to vacate my room the next day, as it was booked by someone else for the next three days. (They lied saying I was informed on arrival that I'd be moving rooms. They even tried...

Right in the heart of Cape Town! So great, we went back for a second night! The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable, and very clean. We stayed in room 18 with a private balcony, and were lucky enough to get it for our return stay. The parking was secure off street, and gated for security....

I stayed at 40 Winks and found it exceptionally marvelous as the place was clean and the staff and owner where very kind, hospitable providing an excellent service. I do not believe that the previous reviews justifies the standards and quality of service that I received. I enjoyed a well presented buffet breakfast and will highly recommend and return back...

I have been travelling around CT for two weeks for work, staying at a range of bed and breakfasts all in similar price brackets and I have to say 40 winks a disappointment. On arrival I had to ask for an extra towel as it appears you are only issued one small one. I found all the staff lovely and...

The room was comfortable with excellent wifi service. The staff are the main asset of the guest house. The owner is unfriendly to guests and appears to be more concerned about charging guests whatever she can, rather than also focusing on her service. The staff empolyed are excellent. This guest house does not cater for people with alergies nor health...

This is the first bad review ive submitted to trip advisor. This place has a great location and nice staff but definitely not worth staying here. The owner is not a nice person! We booked three rooms for five nights and when we checked out we found out every taxi call from reception cost money. The worst of all they...

The beds are very comfortable. If you want to stay in for the evening and watch tv when the weather is cold. Don't bother as someone in guest house has the remote and changes the channel all the time, even if you were interested in the movie you were watching. I asked the manager on duty what was going on,...

We had the opportunity to stay over at 40 Winks, because it was closest & within walking distance from the Green Point / Cape Town Stadium. Because we were 3 people & wanted to stay together, we were offered an apartment. Apartment is very stylishly decorated & very convenient with every possible appliance at hand. However, i was charged for...

My room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff were fab, the breakfast simple but great. It's a little walk from the Waterfront, which is fine during the day - taxi after dark. There are a few restaurants/eateries pretty close. I would stay again - in fact I tried to stay over Easter (2016) but fully booked...

We received friendly service upon arrival. We stayed at the self catering apartment a few blocks away from the guesthouse. The apartment was big and spacious. Could do with a few refurbishments though.
