I have stayed at Mountview twice now. This is my first choice when I visit CapeTown. It’s convenient because you are close to waterfront and many popular places and the sea is walking distance. Joe is great and Lebo the housekeeper is a ray of sunshine.

Joe is a very nice, friendly and helpful host ! 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The guesthouse itself is situated on a reasonably busy street, parking opts near by, but not on premise. Breakfast was served and very good, Müsli, fresh fruits, eggs, bacon, … toast, etc. There is a small pool but nobody seems to use it. Our room had more or less no window, at least not a window with a view to somewhere, which I personally missed. Good and well situated guesthouse, good for short stays.

My stay @ Mountview Spa and Guest House came after 3 nights in a hostel in Green Point - Just what the Dr ordered! A fantastic property with excellent service from start to finish. Joe was a great host and nothing was too much trouble (he is clearly committed to making sure that every guest has a positive experience) The breakfast and coffee were particularly good, and the property is well positioned for access to plenty of restaurants, shops etc just down the road.

The guest house is ideally located within easy walk of many restaurants. Pool area very nice and well maintained. Rooms and bathroom very clean. Joe and his staff were very good at assisting with locally recommended restaurants and places to visit. Breakfast was tasty and well presented.

Welcomed by Joe who provided a map and pointed out areas of interest in relation to Mountview. My room was a good size, clean and was nice to have fresh milk in the room's fridge for tea and coffee. However while the property is lovely and well located, I thought it was a bit cold and damp. It was chilly in Cape Town during my visit and the room was cold so a bit unwelcoming in that respect. There is a heater/AC unit in the room so it did heat up eventually but generally a feeling of damp. The bathroom was clean but needed updating as the grout around tiles in shower was black in places from mould, although I am sure it wasn't dirty the black colour looks unsightly. There are power cuts in SA generally and Joe directed me to download an App which would outline the hours to expect them. I felt this info could be written down for guests to refer to rather than saddling travellers with this extra responsibility. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment.

The location is close to the waterfront - just two blocks back which was good. The property had a damp mould smell which was not so good. Hopefully it was just due to the excess rain the previous month. Unfortunately reality did not meet expectation with this property. Probably closer to a private room in a hostel than what I was looking for.

Such a lovely place. Only stayed for 1 night but I would have loved to stay longer! Lebo and Joe are so friendly and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend it to everyone I know!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Mountview spa and guest house. We had no expectations except for the fact that we needed a break even if it was for 1 night. We have been raising our 3 kids for the last 9 years and they all 3, 3 years apart so we didn't have much US time and this little trip was just what we needed. From the moment we stepped through the doors we just felt peace. Lovely guest house. Great place to get away to. We dubbed it our hide out and will certainly return. I have already recommended to friends. We loved it.

I enjoyed my stay at mountain view so much, even before check in the owner was communicating with me to make sure everything went smoothly. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The room was great nice shower and bed, AC and Wi-Fi worked great. Breakfast was lovely and customized for you every morning. The location was perfect you’re in between the waterfront/downtown and the suburbs with beaches plus the sea point promenade is a lovely walk in the evenings. Very good restaurants nearby and felt totally safe as solo female.
