We stayed at On Pinewood Guesthouse for 6 nights and had an amazing time. Kelvin was incredibly kind and welcoming. Each evening he took the time to ask us how our day had been and gave us great suggestions on things to do the next day. We weren't able to have breakfast each day, but when we did have time the breakfast was gorgeous. The staff were also very sweet and made us feel at home. The room itself was clean and cozy with a spacious bathroom and a beautiful outdoor terrace. We really enjoyed staying here and will certainly stay again the next time we go to Cape Town.

I stayed at Pinewood for a couple of days, then left to explore another part of Cape Town before ultimately returning for the rest of my trip. I simply saw no reason to stay elsewhere. An entrance to Table Mountain National Park is a 5 minute walk, possibly the best pub in Cape Town is around the corner, you can get an Uber to Constantia winelands for 75 Rand, or equally reach the city for the same cost. Kelvin, the owner, will help you plan your days if required and is always on hand to make your stay as pleasant as possible. He's also great company over a beer or five...

We stayed here only for one night and were welcomed by the very friendly owner. We realy enjoyed the nice room with all the facilities and the soft matras was a very nice plus after sleeping 3 nights on a hard matras. Closeby a very nice pub where you can have nice lunches and dinners. Definitely recommand this place.

we liked the location and the decor and furnishings in the house were interesting. The hosts very friendly and the breakfast adequate. We were however not expecting to have to share a bathroom and never found the coffee machine in our room. Had to ask for a glass for water and parking is limited to one guest. Rates are good.
