What our guests have to say
Exceptional in every way
We are a mature and well-travelled couple, and this was the most delightful stay we’ve ever had. Our room was roomy, beautiful and comfortable, and it had the most fantastic views over Table Mountain, with open space immediately outside as well, making it tranquil and quiet, though still very close to the life of the city. Breakfast downstairs at a gorgeous big table in stunning room was perfect for us: fresh fruit and juices, good coffee and tea, and a lovely selection of meats, cheeses, breads, smoked salmon and pastries. Best of all, though, was the genuine hospitality given so generously by Lynn and Jacques, who could not have been more helpful with all manner of suggestions and help, from directions, to making dinner reservations for us, listening to what we liked and making fantastic suggestions for what to see in the city and surrounding countryside, to helping us get set up with Uber, and buying bus tickets for us online. Jacques even took care of turning our car around everyday so it was easy to get out of the secure parking area. Everything Lynn and Jacques suggested was absolutely wonderful, beyond every expectation, and perfectly tailored to our interests. Primrose and Grant were lovely and helpful too, and we could not have felt more comfortable, secure or welcomed. Our hosts were beautiful people, and this was a beautiful place. It was our first time to South Africa and Cape Town, and we really felt incredibly blessed to have lucked into staying at Devonport House, and hope we can return someday.

Erholsam, ruhig und angenehm um Cape Town kennenzulernen.
Alles sehr geschmackvoll und gut abgestimmt in diesem Guesthouse. Frische Milch für Nespresso Morgen Kaffee wird täglich neu aufgefüllt. Täglich frisches Wasser bereit gestellt. Die Gastgeber reagieren sehr zuvorkommend und hilfreich. Geben Tipps und sind bei Restaurant Reservierungen unterstützend. Sehr nah zur City, alles gut erreichbar.

What a lovely gem of a guesthouse
Jaques and his wife are the perfect hosts. We were looking for a last Minute Option for New Year´s eve and ended up staying two nights in the lovely luxurious new rooms. The view of the city at night and the table mountain in stunning. Thank you for your great hospitality.
everything was simply perfect
The hosts of Devonport house are wonderful people, who make you feel at home straight away. The location is incredible - peaceful and beautiful views overlooking the city, while still being very close to Kloof street with all its bars, restaurants and shops. The room was very modern, incredibly spacious and immaculately cleaned. If we go back to Cape Town, we would definitely stay there again.

raumhaftes Kleinod mit tollen Gastgebern in super Lage!
Die Gastgeber Lynn und Jaques sowie die Mitarbeiter sind unglaublich freundlich und zuvorkommend. Man fühlt sich wie Zuhause bei der Familie... Jaques kennt seine Heimatstadt wie seine Westentasche und gibt einem tolle Insidertipps und reserviert auch gerne Tische in wundervollen Restaurants für seine Gäste. Als wir ihm sagten was wir für den nächsten Tag planten, überraschte er uns beim Frühstück mit einer Karte auf der er genau vermerkt hatte wie wir zu fahren haben, damit wir alle Sehenswürdigkeiten direkt finden konnten. Die Lage der Unterkunft ist super um die Stadt zu erkunden, zentral, sicher und trotzdem sehr ruhig und mit einem beeindruckenden Blick auf den Tafelberg. Die beiden Zimmer sind super ausgestattet, sehr sauber und absolut stilvoll eingerichtet. Wir wüssten nicht was man bei dieser Unterkunft noch verbessern könnte und werden auf jedenfall wiederkommen!

We would love to come back!
My husband and I had a fabulous 7-night stay at Devonport House in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town, and would highly recommend it. This beautiful property is located on the slopes of Signal Hill with stunning views of the city and Table Mountain. There is parking on the property if you need it. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was a TV with Netflix access. One of our favourite parts of the day while in Cape Town was having breakfast at the guesthouse. Breakfast consisted of pastries, yogurt, granola, fruit, toast, fresh squeezed juices, coffee, tea, and some meats, and it was served on the deck. Lynn was such a friendly hostess and made our stay very comfortable. She had great suggestions on restaurants and shopping, and genuinely cared that we had a great experience.
Felt like a home away from home, but located in the most beautiful part of the city.
The location is so close to the city, yet being up on the hill with the most spectacular views, no buildings in front of the property, it’s simply stunning. The owners Jaques and Lynn, and the staff, Grant and Primrose could not do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Lovely breakfast each day around the pool, great coffee, and quiet neighbourhood. Best BnB by far!
It was all fabulous!
An amazing and luxurious place to stay, with attention to detail. Beautiful views from the room, which is very private and comfortable. The hosts were extremely friendly, hospitable and accommodating! Cannot wait to go back! Highly recommended!

Amazing place...amazing people...thank you very much and see you soon 😉
Sehr gute, ruhige schöne Lage und trotzdem zentral gelegen. Lynn und Jacques sind wunderbare, herzliche Gastgeber. Kein Wunsch bleibt offen! Sie haben uns jeweils die Restaurants organisiert und wir konnten einfach hinfahren und geniessen. Geheimtipp!

Die Lage der Unterkunft ist perfekt, d.h. absolut ruhig am Rande der Stadt und trotzdem erreicht man das Stadtzentrum in wenigen Fahrminuten. Die Zimmer bieten einen fantastischen Ausblick über einen mediteranen Garten auf die Stadt und auf den Tafelberg. Alles ist absolut neu (Die Unterkunft hat erst im Herbst 2018 eröffnet.) und sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Lynn und Jacques sind sehr herzliche Gastgeber, die einem stets das Gefühl geben willkommen zu sein. Das Frühstück ist überwältigend! Nochmals herzlichen Dank an Lynn und Jacques für alles.

Had an awesome stay at this gem of a B&B. Both Jacques and Lynn (and their adorable little dog, Noodle) were amazing hosts and the place was located in a great part of town near Kloof street for tons of dining options. The room was extremely clean and comfortable and had a stellar view of Table Mountain. It was a downtown location, but the little garden area and peaceful neighbourhood provided a serene getaway with the perfect blend of action and relaxation. Our favorite part was the beautiful breakfast spread in the morning, where we ate on the patio overlooking the garden and Table Mountain. So relaxing! Thanks for everything! We would definitely stay again.

Wow! What can I say? This stay was just incredible. From arriving in Cape Town and finding this place with ease, to getting my room and the property information, to getting helpful tips on what to do in Cape Town, and the quality of the room and its amenities—this stay was such a pleasure. The room was spotless and everything you could want in a guest apartment. There was a coffee bar, a TV, and even a desk with USB charging stations for my phone and devices. The bathroom was extremely clean with ample soaps and other products and towels for my stay. There was even a lovely breakfast for my stay with fruits and granolas and cereal and more. Jacques and Lynn were most helpful and delightful to work with. They made my stay in Cape Town so much easier and enjoyable than I could have hoped for. If I could give this place six stars, I would. I highly recommend the Devonport House to anyone wanting a gorgeous stay in Cape Town, with beautiful views of Table Mountain and Devil’s Peak and the city. So easy. So great. Will do it again for sure! Thanks!

Jacques' and Lynn's place was one of the most unbelievable stays we've experienced! They welcomed us warmly and provided us with insight of the area and helped us to get settled in. The room we stayed in was exceptional and very luxurious. Huge comfy bed, tv with ample entertainment, lots of space, wonderful clean bathroom, good WiFi. Everything was spectacular. The views from the room were second to none, and sitting out on the balcony in the morning listening to the quiet surrounds and birds was a treat. The breakfast that was provided was generous and delicious, and so great to be able to sit out on the deck surrounded by nature and the mountains. Would highly recommend a stay here!
