What our guests have to say

Above and beyond

Wonderful guest house. The host Jacques and his team went above and beyond to make our stay very special. We stayed over Christmas, which was made extra special staying in such a beautiful place. We even received gifts.

South Africa

A wonderful place for a stay in Cape Town. The hotel is located in a calm neighborhood with a splendid view on the city and Table Mountain & Devil's Peak. Rooms are very nicely decorated. A very warm welcome from Jacques and his staff (Prudence & Grant). Jacques gives many good advices for you to enjoy Cape Town at its best. On one evening, we were invited by Jacques and one of his friend to join them for a braai (local barbecue). There is a family atmosphere in this hotel which was very much appreciated. A wonderful place with very kind staff!



. Dieses Guesthouse ist der richtige Ort in Kapstadt, um sich zu erholen und die Stadt zu ergründen. Es liegt direkt am Signal Hill umgeben von toller Natir in Tamboerskloof mit einem traumhaften Blick auf Devils Peak und den Tafelberg. Der Gastgeber wohnt hier selber auch mit seiner Frau. Beide sind sehr hilfsbereit, wenn es um Tipps in Bezug auf Essen und Aktivitäten gilt. Die Angestellten sind sehr sehr nett, es ist sehr sehr sauber und einfach schön hier. Parkplätze direkt am Haus. Zu Fuß erreicht man sehr viele tolle Restaurants. Wir würden immer wieder hier wohnen wollen.

Dirty Dozen


The staff (Isu and Prudence) and Jaques and Caroline were extremely welcoming. Stayed here for a week and immediately felt like my home away from home. You have the most amazing view on table mountain from Devonport house as well. Our room was very spacious and very clean. Just book it 😊



Incredible view on Table Mountain. Devonport House is located in a very quiet area and still very close to the city (it takes about 10-12 min walking.. at least into the city. The way back would go all the way up, so one should rather take an Uber). The Breakfast Prudence made was one of the best which we had during our 3 weeks stay in SA. About our host: Jacques was a great host! Thank you Jacques for all your great tips and helping us out at any time! We are looking forward to come back to you again.



Our favorite in Cape Town.

Devonport House is in a great and quiet location in a nice residential area on Signal Hill. The perfect base to explore the city and surrounding area. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. There was a delicious breakfast to start the day.
Unfortunately, there was no omelet at breakfast.



Perfect little gem in the city

We had a wonderful stay at Devonport House! Jacques was extremely accommodating and helped out with all our requests. The view was incredible. Would definitely be back soon. Thank you Jacques!

Durban South Africa

We felt very welcomed right from the beginning. It was the perfect start of our Capetown trip. Ideal place to calm down, best view on table mountain, very comfortable rooms, beautiful garden and pool area, friendly owner and staff, yummy food.. nothing to declare.



De tudo! Funcionários excelentes, amáveis, prestáveis. O Dono Jacques é uma excelente pessoa, sempre disposto a ajudar, muito simpático e humilde. O quarto era super espaçoso, cama óptima, frigorífico com bebidas, casa de banho ampla e bons produtos de limpeza e limpeza do quarto impecável. Vista para a table mountain para despertar é a melhor vista possível. Com Piscina, parque de estacionamento e com pequeno almoço e café ( expresso) óptimo.



This place is stunning, every room is the highest of standards, the staff super friendly and helpful and Jack kept us up to date throughout this tricky time. When we return to South Africa to continue our trip we would love to base ourselves here, it’s magnificent. Thanks for the hospitality.



Wunderschöne Unterkunft mit direktem Blick auf den Tafelberg. Gutes Frühstück und sehr freundliches Personal (Prudence und Grant). Jacques ist ein ausgezeichneter Gastgeber. Er gab uns gute Tipps für Ausflüge in die Weinregion, Golf usw. Wir haben uns extrem wohl gefühlt und werden mit Sicherheit wieder kommen.

A must stay in Cape Town! 11/10
Excellent location in Cape Town, safe and quiet. Beautiful guesthouse, warm and inviting. Modern and comfortable clean room, water and chocolate everyday. The view from the window towards the city and table mountain is gorgeous. Breakfast is rich with a huge variety. Jacques is an amazing attentive and kind host. He is extremely friendly and helped us plan our days activities and offered excellent restaurant recommendations, better than what my husband has chosen previously :)) He even made bookings for us and also directed us with recommendations where to buy some souvenirs we have desired...thanks Jacque! We had a great time in Cape Town and would definitely recommend Devonport House. Looking forward to visit/meet again! Era and Ari



Super freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber, die uns viele Tipps gegeben und Restaurants gebucht haben. Die Lage ist sehr gut, da ruhig, mit tollem Ausblick auf die Stadt, die Berge und trotzdem zentral. Mit Uber waren wir in wenigen Minuten in Zielen in Kapstadt unterwegs. Das Mietauto haben wir nur für weitere Ausflüge gebraucht. Netflix ist vorhanden. Wir haben uns in den 14 Tagen schnell wie zu Hause gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.



Luxus-Leben mitten in der Natur, mitten in Kapstadt
Die tolle Lage mit wunderschönem Blick auf den Tafelberg. Die freundlichen, entgegenkommenden Gastgeber und das Personal, Das leckere kleine Frühstücksbuffet mit Avocados, Lachs..... Das schöne Zimmer und der kleine private Liegenbereich am Pool Eigener Parkplatz im geschützten Areal Am letzten Tag durften wir so lange bleiben wir wir wollten und uns im Gästebereich aufhalten, es gab Tee, Kaffee, Bücher, Obst..... Man bekam Zitronenwasser und Kekse serviert

Would definitely stay again when next in Cape Town ,



Ruhige Wohlfühloase
Die Zimmer waren super sauber und sehr schön eingerichtet. Es gab kleine Aufmerksamkeiten wie eine Kaffeemaschine, eine kleine Flasche Rotwein, Kekse zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit, usw.. Das Frühstück war qualitativ exzellent, das Beste bisher von allen Unterkünften in Südafrika. Die Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und haben super Tipps für Restaurants und Ausflüge gegeben. Wir kommen gerne wieder und können die Unterkunft jedem wärmstens empfehlen.



Amazing stay in Cape Down at Devonport House
The property was exceptionally clean, felt extremely safe and secure and is in a great location within approx 10 mins from the V&A Waterfront. Jacques (the owner) was super helpful with local restaurant recommendations and activities to do in the local area. Jacques staff were attentive but not intrusive and extremely smiley every morning which was fantastic. Breakfast was fresh and delicious with a variety of options from cereals and pastries to avocado and salmon. The bedrooms are large with a great view of table mountain. We would highly recommend staying here and put it on a par with top hotels in South Africa such as Strandloper and The Rectory.



+++ zeer zeker de moeite waard 😊
Locatie was top, rustig gelegen in degelijke buurt. Rustige mooie tuin met zicht op de Tafelberg. Lekker ontbijt. Vriendelijk personeel en zeer aangename gastheer. Zeer gezellig verblijf om vandaaruit excursies te doen zowel als even thuis op adem bij te komen. Aanrader!



uneingeschränkte Empfehlung!
Wir waren 5 Nächte im Devonport House und können dieses Guesthouse nur empfehlen. Ruhige Lage mit Blick auf den Tafelberg. Die Zimmer sind super sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Wir haben ruhig und sehr gut geschlafen. Das Frühstück war reichhaltig und gut. Es gibt keine warmen Speisen wie Eier etc. - dafür leckeren Nespresso Kaffee. Im Frühstücksbereich/Aufenthaltsraum steht ganztägig frisches Obst, Kekse, Kaffee und Tee bereit. Das Personal ist durchweg super freundlich und hat immer ein Strahlen im Gesicht. Jaques, der Inhaber, steht mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und hilft wo er kann - gerne wieder!



Prachtige uitvalsbasis met zicht op de Tafelberg !
Prachtige kamer met terras en mooi uitzicht, alle comfort en superrustig! Overheerlijk ontbijt. Privé parking. Jacques, de heer des huizes, is super begaan. Hij geeft goeie tips, zonder opdringerig te zijn, informeert hoe je dag is geweest, reserveert je restaurant 's avonds, betaalde zelfs onze taxi toen UBER ons niet lukte de eerste avond om 23u. Dankjewel Jacques! Devonport House was een mooie start van onze 4-weken durende reis.



Incredibly warm home away from home
It felt very much like staying with at a good friend's house. Every morning, Jacques (the owner) came to the breakfast and would advise interesting places to visit, restaurants to stop at, and even the best scenic routes to drive. The breakfast itself was super fresh and tasty, with great fruit mix salad, fresh yoghurt, selection of cheese, etc. The staff were very friendly. The house is located in a very quiet safe neighbourhood up on the hill, with a great view of Cape Town and Table mountain. There was a very convenient parking space. Bathroom had nice high quality shampoo, soap, etc. The room itself was spacious, very clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend this to be your home away from home.
