The room was comfortable with everything that we need, the staff was friendly, the location was central and in the best part of town, the food was good, the linen was squeaky clean and the towels were replaced often.

I have stayed at Bonne Esperance for over nearly 18 years, usually on short stays away from my home in Cape Town. It has always felt like my home away from home, and my recent stay was no exception. Thanks to Annemien and her staff for making me feel welcome, as always.

The only drawback is the noise, although the apartments are situated on a more quiet street, the guests who were staying in the other studio rooms were making quite a noise (we were located right next to the entrance door). The apartments and entrance has wooden floors, so one...

The guest house has a great charm. The owners/manager pays great detail to the smaller details. The rooms are spacious and pretty, but the bathrooms can be better in the sense of an upgrade. However it has been a while since I've been there. Overall it is a great place.

Great location,walking distance to restaurants, good music , shops and museums. Situated opposite the botanical gardens with an excellent coffee shop. Bonne Esperance is in a beautiful Victorian building with exquisite gardens. The room was extremely spacious, very clean and well decorated with a very generous bathroom. Secure parking and helpful, polite staff

Unexpected pocket of serenity on a hellish business schedule. I got very lucky in a steer to Bonne Esperance from a local and in particular had quite possibly the best breakfast I have ever had on the planet sitting on the verandah next to the garden on a crisp Spring morning looking up to the mountains. Very happy with that!...
