The staff is very helpfull to give any suggestion for your stayng in Cape Town and around. Fantastic breakfast with homemade foodstuff. The area is quiet and parking close to the guesthouse are always available. The owner is investing to make the guiesthouse sustainable as much as possible. Rooms are very clean, but not so big.

We loved the location of Bayflowers and the warm and friendly staff. The breakfast was perfect to start off the day with a good fresh selection of various foods. No complaints about the room, clean and comfortable but nothing WOW. The lack of air con would be an issue for us in warmer months as we were lucky it was not that hot when we visited. The pool was very dirty and had a lot of leaves in the bottom of the pool - didn't make it very appealing to use.

We really enjoyed this short getaway! Thanks to Michael and Jeanne for being such wonderful hosts. The room was very comfortable and well-designed with a nice outdoor balcony. Very thoughtful overall. I liked the water saving, energy saving and gardening ideas. The breakfast was delicious, especially the yummy omelette and the homemade yogurt with fresh fruits.

The guesthouse is located perfectly with great sightseeing, restaurants and coffee cafes close by. The hosts are amazing people: when I got sick the last day they have given us the opportunity to stay in the room the rest of the day since we had a flight late at night. Good hospitality and also the breakfast was tasteful, fresh and proper. Can highly recommend!

Apart from the fact that the guest house is superbly located, extremely comfortable and well appointed, what made our stay extra special was the fact the the owner/managers Jeanne and Michael went out of their way to ensure our every need was catered for. Nothing was to much trouble for them. This is what makes Bayflowers so special and highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed out time at Bayflower guest house and would recommend it to most. They did have fans in each room but with load sheding the room was a little warm.

Breakfast was also very good.
Thank you Michael for the hospitality.

The hosts Nick and Sharon were very hospitable and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Homemade bread, yogurt and pastries were a delight. The location was convenient, near to the mall, restaurants and other attractions. Thanks for a great stay!

The hosts, a husband and wife team, are lovely and very hospitable. They are multilingual (fluent in German) and are both hands-on, providing the personal touch that makes one feel at home. I was most impressed by the breakfast particularly the homemade butter, yoghurt and bread which was often still warm as it was freshly baked. The location is ideal and the room was comfortable. I had a private patio with a view which I really enjoyed. Overall, I had a lovely stay and highly recommend Bayflowers Guest House.
