Nice rooms, good breakfast and perfect location to explore everything arround Cape Town if you have a car! You can get also a lot of good ideas about restaurants and nice places from the owner. We had a very good time in the Art Gallery Guest House - Thandekayo. Highly recommended!

Thanks for a great stay (our last 3 nights in SA). Fantastic place to stay in every way - great location with lovely views and decor to delicious breakfast. Banda is very friendly & helpful; and Martin and Anita were great (and view some of the great photography). . I would highly recommend & would go back tomorrow.

This guesthouse is one of those true pleasures in life. You walk into a tranquil setting with beautifully decorated suites and find yourself in home comfort with superb quality and value for money. The proprietors are friendly and down to earth and the staff treat you like royalty. And then there's the surprise of some stunning fine art photography throughout...

B&B's and Guest Houses are always so difficult to choose - so when faced with that dilemma read reviews! This is a most pleasant place to stay - and fully met my expectations. Banda makes you feel very welcome and takes the time to ensure that you know where everything is. The Breakfast setting is lovely and the rooms are...

We stayed two nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are good and the whole guest house is very good. Breakfasts are very good and you are really well looked after. It is a secure property within Hout Bay which is a pleasant place but not a place to walk into at night!

This B&B was the most expensive of our 6 week holiday in Southern Africa, so we could be forgiven for thinking it would be special. However, this was far from the case. We were greeted VERY effusively by Banda who kept asking why we were only staying one night at "his house", which we found rather strange as we didn't...
