The Trevoyan Guesthouse is a stunning building that oozes Victorian style and charm. It has a great location with several restaurants and cafes in the nearby vicinity but it benefits from the peace and quiet of a residential neighbourhood. It's a great base for exploring the Mother City and surrounds. The house is surrounded by manicured lawns and a majestic 95 year old oak tree provides an impressive welcome.
There are seven rooms in total, 5 in the main house and another two suites in the garden villa. The rooms are individually decorated in a variety of elegant and muted colours and original Oregon wooden floors. The stylish furniture and fabrics blend well with more modern African artefacts strategically placed about the guest house. All rooms have king or queen size beds, satellite TVs, telephone, minibar and WiFi.
The shady veranda provides a wonderful setting for relaxing as does the rooftop terrace with views of Table Mountain. Here on the rooftop terrace is where scrumptious breakfasts are served each morning. Enjoy your breakfast with views of the magnificent Table Mountain as an accompaniment. Inside is the inviting lounge with comfy chairs and sofas. Outside the beautiful gardens provide some pleasant shady spots to spend a little time, and there is also a solar-heated pool at your disposal for a relaxing dip after a hard day of sight-seeing.

"Lovely guesthouse in a brilliant location, The service was wonderful, the breakfast perfect and there was a real sense of thoughtfulness and caring here. We stayed 3 nights at Trevoyan and our room (room 3) was quite central within the Guest House. It was a little on the small side and quite noisy in the morning so my advice would be if you're staying longer than one night, ask for a bigger room and away from the dining room. "
