    Delightful stay at beautiful guesthouse

    Our stay in the Upstairs Room was delightful. Very spacious and cute room with a massive bathroom. The guesthouse is a beautifully restored old house. Our host Peter was delightful and set forth some amazing breakfasts and good conversation. Very central, within walking distance to restaurants, Loop street, the Gardens and a ton of other things to do. Highly recommended and we’ll be back!

    Great place to stay in Tamboerskloof

    Maureen and Peter were excellent hosts. The room very clean and comfy and the spotlessly clean. The ned is fantastic for walking around, lots of restaurants and shops nearby and very safe to walk around even at night. Maureen and Peter are very lovely and incredibly interesting to talk to about their life travels.

    Excellent Hosts!

    Maureen and Peter were excellent hosts. Things to do and places to eat that they recommend were all spot on. Great conversations and breakfasts were simply superb. I’d come back in a heartbeat (if it weren’t 20+ hrs away by plane)...😎 but time will tell.

    Gorgeous house, good location within walking distance of centre, and a few steps away from cafes / restaurants, groceries store, great hosts with good recommendations. Best breakfast we had on our 10 days trip. Would definitely go back

    Maravilhoso!

    Escolhi este hotel, após ler os comentários em vários sites de OATs e agora posso confirmar que Gilmour Hill é realmente um charme. Na verdade se trata de uma pousada, estilo boutique, que funciona numa casa, de arquitetura inglesa. O bairro é super sossegado, mas dá para ir caminhando até a rua mais movimentada da Cidade do Cabo: Long Street. Não tem nada que eu não tenha gostado sobre este hotel. Os donos do local são um charme, Maureen e Peter são super atenciosos e prestativos. Os cômodos são super charmosos, meu quarto era um mimo, parecia que eu estava na casa de uma tia caprichosa, cada cantinho do quarto tinha um detalhe: colchas bordadas à mão, livros por todo canto, decoração fofa. E o café da manhã é uma delícia, especialmente preparado para cada hóspede, e enquanto você se delicia com os quitutes, aprecia uma foto da Maureen ao lado do Mandela. Sério, este lugar é muito fofo e eu voltaria lá certamente. Aliás, tenho vontade de voltar só para ficar em Gilmour Hill!
