The Walden Suites in Fresnaye is probably one of the best boutique guest houses in Cape Town. It is located within a lovely residential road in Fresnaye within a 20 minute walk of bustling Seapoint with its great shops and restaurants. On arrival we were met by the lovely and vivacious Melanie,one of the owners along with the very helpful and multi tasking Shadreck. All the rooms a spotlessly clean, spacious and very well presented including fresh flowers, there own branded shower gel, soap and room spray. The swimming pool area has views towards the sea and Robben Island. Their is a great breakfast with plenty of choice including bacon and eggs, fresh fruit and lovely bread and croissants. I could go on and on how good The Walden is but the best thing to do is come and experience it yourself, you won't be disappointed, we certainly will be back for another visit.

The accomodation was great, the host was really nice, rooms were clean, breakfast were delicious, pool was just the right temperature and it was close to the main street where you can find all of the restaurants (around 15 min walking, by taxi 5 min )

an absolute dream, the guest house is very child-friendly, my two children felt at home and the host Melanie did everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. I can recommend the guest house to anyone who is looking for something special. This will definitely always be our first choice when we are in Cape Town, we are already looking forward to our next stay.

This is a very nice place to stay in Capetown. It’s clean, the room is comfortable and there is a lovely garden with a nice pool. Good breakfast. We arrived very late(01.30 am) but we were very kindly welcomed. Neighbourhood is safe. I would strongly recommend this place.

We loved our stay at The Walden Suites and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation. The pool and breakfast were highlights! Staying here was much more personal than a large hotel and after a week we felt like part of The Walden Suites family.

Had a fantastic 4 night stay in the suite on the ground floor. Very comfortable and authentic guest house. Rooms are clean with lots of focus on detail. Highlight is the small garden patio were you can have your breakfast in the sun. Honesty bar available but you can also go fetch a wine from the super market around the corner and leave it in the fridge provided for guests. Service is super friendly and Melanie + team are great in providing recommendations for the area. Area is safe and lots of restaurants in walking distance. Highly recommend The Walden Suites.
