A wonderful place to stay with super-attentive host (Glen) and staff. My friend and I arrived very late in the evening after a long flight and we were welcomed and checked-in by Peter who showed us our rooms, led us to the very comfortable lounge/bar, went and filled an ice bucket for us then lit the fire for us whilst we relaxed with a drink. Both our rooms were large, clean and comfortable with effective aircon units. Breakfast was great with a wide choice of cold and hot food and very attentive waiting staff. The guest house itself is located in an affluent area in which Glen assured us it was very safe to stroll around. We walked the next day to the beautiful Vergelegen winery (highly recommended) which took us about 20-30 mins each way. My luggage was unfortunately lost in transit from Amsterdam and as we were only stopping for 2 nights in Albourne before commencing a tour of the Western Cape, Glen kindly offered to look after our luggage in our absence when it eventually arrived. This is the kind of personal service which is much appreciated when things don't always go to plan!
Thank You, Glen & Staff

We stayed at Albourne for the second time and it was as pleasant as the first visit. You feel welcome from the very first moment. Great, clean rooms, nice pool, very good breakfast.
When you are at the pool you can also get water and coffee or a muffin (for free).

You can also ask for things to do in the area.

We felt very very good at the Guest House and will def. come back.

We can recommend it 100%, not only for the great rooms and garden plus pool, but also because the people at Albourne makes it special!

Wonderful guest house within easy reach of Cape Town airport. We had an really large room that appeared to have been recently refurbished. Lovely gardens around the swimming pool. Breakfast was really good. Hosts were really attentive and recommended a great restaurant (Henri’s). Only disappointment was that we only stayed for one night to give us time to recover from our flight.

Last time we were in Albourne was in December 2019. We returned to this guesthouse in December 2022, based on our perfect experience. This time we were in a garden room. A specious room with kitchen facilities. Glen and his staff are very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast on the terrace, with a large choice of fruit, juices and hot items. We will not hesitate to return in the future!

Upon arrival immediately felt welcome. Reception was friendly and helpful. Room was spacious and well appointed - not only aircon, fridge, tv and kettle, but a Nespresso machine which I thought was a nice touch. Bathroom lovely. Breakfast was superb and service was fast. The whole setup is brilliant. Beautiful garden next to the pool and I just enjoyed my stay as a whole. Cannot recommend enough.

Stayed one night and will be back. Owner is very hands on and greet each guest by their name. Property is very nice, the bottom rooms against the road can become busy.

Breakfast was out of this world and was upmarket restaurant quality.

Guest services and attention to guest needs is 5 star. Stunning place

I stayed in one of the Garden cottages and everything was better than perfect.
The location of the Guesthouse is great and the staff and Glen made me feel right at home.
Everyone went out of their way to make me feel welcomed.

I will definitely be back on my next trip to SA.
Highly recommended!

We were in the Cape for a wedding and booked several rooms at the Albourne Guest house. It is hands down one of the best guest houses we have ever stayed at. Glen and his team are simply wonderful. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the place was spotlessly clean. The garden/pool area was beautiful with pool loungers and fresh towels. The breakfast was truly world class with a huge selection of wonderful food. Our favourite part had to be the extensive honesty bar. Glen and his team couldn’t have done more to make our stay perfect. This is a home from home for us
Many thanks to Albourne Guest House
