Have stayed here twice and would repeat the experience with alacrity. The friendly personal attention is accompanied by spacious characterful accommodation and the best breakfast in town. Location perfect for central Cape Town and for lively and relatively safe Kloof Street. A bit of extraneous noise but that's a small price to pay for such a central location.

This was my second stay at Tintagel and I will definitely stay there again next time I go to Cape Town! It’s a beautiful little guesthouse with very comfortable and clean rooms, in an area with lots of restaurants, shops and a magnificent view over Table mountain outside the door. But still very calm and quiet and you could sleep very good. And the people who work there are the nicest and you really felt taken care of. Utah in particular was a very pleasant person. I highly recommend this place and I hope to be back as soon as possible! ⭐️ /Lisa

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay at Tintagel! We were greeted by Utah and Ivan, who provided extensive history on the lovely Victorian home and the Cape. They gave helpful sightseeing suggestions and made all the necessary arrangements. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in the garden and had a very comfortable spacious room. The location is safe and centrally located. We can highly recommend it and hope to return in the near future.

Response from Ivan Flint, Owner at Tintagel Guesthouse
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Shelley and Bill, It was a great pleasure to re-establish such a lovely connection with fellow folk from directly across the Atlantic Ocean, and to especially to reminisce on the historic similarities and cultural legacy that existed between between our two worlds, now straddling three millennia. Contact with New Orleans and Alabama has indeed left its indelible mark on our Cape culture, not least in our local music, its instrumentation and carnival dress! We are pleased that you felt at home with us during your stay, and look forward to remaining in contact with you. Best wishes to you both from Utah, Martin, Zondelia, Maria and Samantha. Sincerely Ivan

Stayed here on a girls trip and everything was seamless from the communication beforehand, service, breakfast each morning, rooms, Utah and Martin do a wonderful job running this Guesthouse! Would recommend to all, we even walked all around safely on Kloof Street for dinner and bars at night!

A friend gave me the steer on this place and I owe him a beer. This place is superb. Well located with parking places secured by electrically controlled gates within a few minutes of the myriad bars and restaurants of Kloof Street, this little gem is equidistant to everywhere of interest in Cape Town and easy to find when coming from the airport. The hosts are charming, helpful and full of little touches to make your stay special. Super breakfasts and calming shaded outdoor seating areas make for a great place to stay. Loadshedding ( set power cuts ) which affect everyone in SA are a pain but the hotel can do nothing other than communicate clearly when these events take place. My only regret is that I was only there for 2 nights!

I stayed at the Tintagel Guesthouse for three weeks in January 2024 and it was so lovely. It was super clean, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing. Utah was very welcoming and made me feel at home, Ivan was friendly and welcoming and also Martin, who was always so friendly and helpful. The housekeeping ladies are really kind and helpful too. The location is very close to Kloof Street and a drive away from Camps Bay. The team are just like a family and it felt like my three weeks went too quick. I would definitely recommend Tintagel Guesthouse if you are looking for somewhere relaxing to stay after a long day out in the mountains. Thank you to Utah, Ivan, Martin and the Housekeeping team for making my stay memorable. I would definitely visit and stay there again!

Had a wonderful stay here 1 week ago. The guesthouse is a stunning period building with beautiful internal gardens. An Irish flag awaited me at reception; a lovely touch. The owners were extremely attentive in their service. A great value stay; highly recommended.

I had a delightful stay at this guesthouse! The room was impeccably tidy, creating a cozy atmosphere in a safe location. The scrambled eggs at breakfast were a highlight, prepared to perfection. The personnel were exceptionally friendly, offering valuable advice on local attractions and excellent dining spots. Overall, a top-notch experience that made my visit memorable.

We had a lovely stay for one night and were made to feel very welcome in a beautifully appointed guest house. Very central and a quick trip from the airport with friendly and helpful staff who pointed us in the right direction with regards to restaurants and sightseeing. We loved our stay!

We were welcomed in a very personal manner by the host and were having tea and biscuits. Wonderful rooms in old style were clean and spacious. We got good recommendations of where to eat and other information. Thanks for this stay - we regretted moving to another place the next day!
