I visited Cape Town for a conference and booked my stay online with hotels.com, same-day because my flight had been cancelled. Payment made, I rang the number for 2 hours (mobile number) to confirm I was coming. No answer. I got there in the evening and rang the bell, and I had to deal with a woman who says she is the owner and who was extremely rude. I have to say I only dealt with lovely people in Cape Town, so I was so shocked. She sort of treated me as if I was a thief and said I hadn't booked the room, that I was not welcome, and I should leave now. She sounded like she was going to call the police on me. Woaw. Basically, the gate never opened and I was properly kicked out of the door front. She wouldn't let me say a word and kept on asking me to leave. She kept on saying said I had not done the booking but my bank statement said otherwise. The taxi was kind enough to lend me his phone and suggest other places and before midnight, I found another hotel, more modest but humane, which really is what counts as far as I'm concerned.

Good Day, Thank you for your feedback. We are terribly sorry that we were not able to host you, as we had no record of your reservation in our system. Due to security reasons, to ensure the safety of our guests, we were not able to grant you access at such a late hour. We have not processed any payment for your stay, as you did not stay with us. However, we recommend that you make contact with the agent that you used to make the reservation, to arrange a refund of the money that you paid them. We hope to have the opportunity to host you in the future. Kind Regards Johan and Jenny

This is definitely a home away from home. Jenny and her staff went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We arrived early but felt welcome as they arranged for us to stil settle in. Breakfast was served early with a smile and the signature fruit an yogurt to die for. My daughter was playing in an tournament and received a delicious smoothie to be ready for her day with extra energy. Rooms are neat and comfortable. Location is key and we will definitely be back to visit this amazing guest house in a quiet area.

I stayed at the Knightsbury for 3 nights. When I arrived it was a bit grey outside (would you expect anything less for Cape Town winters) and Jenny had warmed up my room for me. How thoughtful is that?! It was my first time staying in Rondebosch and I had such a lovely stay! Jenny is such a wonderful host! So intuitive and attentive, always available to assist and super friendly. Johan prepared amazing breakfasts each morning and Jenny ensured I was proper [over]fed but satisfied. I absolutely recommend staying here when visiting Cape Town and I will definitely be knocking on their door again!

Hi Dr Riad, Congratulations once again on graduating with a PhD from the University of Cape Town. It was great having you and your wife, all the way from Mauritius, and we are best pleased that you enjoyed the quality that enhanced your guest experience. Jenny is a tremendous host, introducing everyone at breakfast with a friendly and fun atmosphere. It was fantastic to have you could chat to the other Doctorates and Professors, exchanging ideas etc. Our door is always open and we hope to see you both when next in Cape Town. Regards, J&J
