Property Information:

Split over two beautifully restored town houses, each decorated in its own African style, House on the Hill offers luxurious, intimate and affordable accommodation in Cape Town.

We have doubles, twins, triples, family rooms and quads/dorm and each room has its own TV, safe, hair dryer,heater and tea/coffee making facilities. All rooms are en suite - bathrooms are separated by sliding doors.
The upmarket deluxe 'Villa' rooms (RM 1-5 ) come with breakfast . RM 6- 9 is self catering accommodation only .

There is a fully equipped self catering kitchen as well as a barbecue area outside in our green courtyard.
WiFi is available in the reception/ lounge area and in most of the B&B rooms free of charge.

Rooms are serviced on a daily basis.

Triple rooms have a double bed and a single bed or 3 single beds and quad rooms have one double and a bunk bed. Fresh linen and towels are provided free of charge.

Breakfast is not included in the online room rates, however we serve a continental breakfast for all B&B rooms from 8-10am including fruits, juice, jam, honey, cereals, selection of cold meats and cheese as well as rolls and the best croissants in town (we think :-)
All rooms are non-smoking, but you are welcome to smoke in the garden.

House on the hill intentionally does NOT have DSTV as we highly encourage our guests to rather go explore and enjoy the beauty of the western cape.

    The location was superb with many restaurants in easy walking distance. The neighbourhood was pleasant & very central. About a 30 minute walk in to CBD. About a 15-20 minute walk to Bokaap district. Staff super friendly, efficient & helpful. Rooms and kitchen area were very clean but a bit old.
