Gelegen in de oude wijk Gardens, aan de voet van de tafelberg.
De mooiste stad van Afrika is prachtig gelegen aan de Tafelbaai. Geniet van de kleurrijke wijken, restaurants en bars, de Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, ga de Tafelberg op en wandel langs het strand in Camps Bay. Kaapstad is de ideale stad om het schiereiland en de wijnlanden te bezoeken. Neemt u voldoende de tijd, want er is zoveel te zien!
"A return stay, lovely as usual."
What a magnificent view of table mountain from our little verandah! We picked a room with a view and did it ever! There is nothing like Table Mountain with the table cloth of clouds one day, or in the clear the next with the cable car going up and down - what a treat! This is a well run and charming B&B in Gardens, Cape Town with excellent restaurants on your doorstep, in easy walking distance. Welgelegen is a restored and converted house, that has expanded to include the house in the rear, with a charming pool and garden in between. It has lovely old woodwork, high ceilings and charming details. The owners have added a spa (which we didn't try), there is a comfortable sitting room with an interesting library and great coffee table books on the area. Tea, coffee, cookies and sherry are available all day, as are the honor bar offerings of wine etc. The room was very nice, comfortable and cozy, with a small balcony with cafe table seating to appreciate the view. There is an AC unit or, if the weather is mild, you can sleep with the windows open. Parking is on the street or the back parking bays and it seems perfectly safe. Welgelegen is situated at the end of a closed-off street, with an exit to the rear street, a 5 minute walk to Kloof Street, which boasts plenty of good restaurants, including one of the best restaurants in Cape Town; Black Sheep. The owners of Welgelegen, Fiona and Karen, are extremely helpful as are the rest of the staff and can make reservations or call ahead - it is well worth it. (Avoid The Deck House Crab Shack next door, with it's deep fried seafood.) Breakfast was delicious with home made breads, fruit, yogurts, muesli etc followed by a hot assortment. The first day we filled up on the fresh and tempting buffet and couldn't eat any more. The 24 hour staff are very helpful. We had a large pile of laundry done the same day, returned beautifully ironed and folded. We rented a car at the airport and driving in Cape Town is easy enough during the day, although traffic was heavy in December and the pace was slow. We also went on superb day tours with Glen Christie and her company, Vineyard Ventures. Welgelegen is a charming place, we were happy to return and will happily stay here again.
"Stimulates All of the Senses"
Well Fiona and Karen haven't you made this beautiful Victorian Town House in to something special. We had three nights here in great comfort with great attention to detail. The staff were friendly and could not do enough for us. Trips and restaurants were all explained and recommended and the breakfast was just lovely as was the honesty bar set up for the evening where you could help yourself and mingle with other guests. My title of this review meant that the place looked good. It was in immaculate condition for an old house. It felt good. Thick towels supplied on top of really comfortable sun loungers. Deep armchairs and settees that would have been warm and enveloping in winter. It sounded good. The amiable chatter amongst and with the staff and the subtle background music. Finally it even smelt good as scented candles were burnt giving off a wonderful aroma. A large comfortable bed and a prime location within walking distance of some good restaurants and also close enough to walk to the V&A Waterfront topped it off. And I forgot to mention, with the awesome Table Mountain as a backdrop. A great start to our African adventure.
A charming guesthouse with a very hospitable host. We were on our honeymoon and were welcomed with a beautiful room with views of table mountain, a bottle of champagne and fresh fruit - a wonderful start to our visit to Cape Town. The room and bathroom were tastefully decorated and well appointed. The breakfasts were delicious. The only improvement would be thicker black out curtains and some sound proofing on the windows facing the school next door. We were woken up in the morning by some very robust chanting from the students. Overall an excellent choice for Cape Town.
"Gorgeous hotel with great staff"
A really beautiful hotel run by Fiona and Karen who help make your stay memorable, will recommend and book local restaurants and will do whatever they can to make your stay memorable. A lovely oasis at the back of the hotel to chill out in the pool and enjoy the sun. Very convenient to explore Cape Town and experience the many changing views of table mountain.
"Quiet, central and welcoming lodge"
Our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 teens) stayed here for 5 nights and were delighted with the service and accommodation. It is just a 5 min walk to the Kloof Street which has lots of great eating place. The service is excellent, the rooms lovely and the view of Table Mountain is pretty special. The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms a good size & the kids especially loved the little cookies that are part of the tea and coffee tray. Breakfast is a lovely health buffet and they were very happy to serve us early on the morning we had a 6am departure for a trek up Table Mountain. Pool is tiny but still lovely to sit around and relax. Highly recommended!
