My wife and our 2 sons stayed at Mbalentle guesthouse for 5 nights in one of the self catering units called Elonwabeni.It was the most memorable experience of our whole trip to South Africa.
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the location is central so all attractions and activities in Cape Town are easily accessable.
The owner is a wonderful Xhosa lady called Florence and she went out of her way to make sure that we all felt at home.Breakfasts and dinners are offered as optional extras and Florence is a wonderful cook and hostess don't leave without tasting her dishes.
I would recommend any person travelling to Cape Town to stay at Mbalentle it offers an African experience of a lifetime.

We stayed at the Mbalentle Guest House for 5 nights during on a Mission Trip in Cape Town. What can I say? The guest house is perfect! The staff was hospitable and welcoming. Comfortable and clean rooms. The breakfast was fantastic along with the refreshing tea served every morning and evening. It is close to other Cape Town attractions like Victoria's Wharf and shopping centers. When we return to Cape Town this is where we will stay again!

Affordable yet with expensive taste.
It's a beautiful place yet missing some things; I believe it is fairly new.
A male worker checked me in and I met the manager the next day. The current manager, Florence is very kind and helpful.
Due to me, a solo traveler, being there during slow season, food is not included, however, there is a small fridge in my room and microwave in the communal kitchen.
Transportation is not included, however, Florence can refer a taxi if you are not an Uber user, as the lodge is quite a distance from the touristy locations.
There were no printed rules or given rules upon check in, so I just went with my instinct. The wifi information is not available for public use just yet.
It's very clean and the bed was comfortable.
It's a self-catering guest lodge. It is also very quiet and safe and secluded. I recommend this place for couples looking for a romantic time away.

I'm a Canadian woman who travels all alone on business quite frequently. This BNB is a place to remember. Perfectly clean, quiet, spacious, and safe. The owner, Florence, is very kind and helpful as are her staff. The food is good. Breakfasts are hearty and the dinners are plentiful. The tap water tastes good too :) The place is a little far from town but Florence can help you hire a safe taxi. I will absolutely stay here on my next trip to Cape Town.

First of all, this hotel is located close to Capetown Airport but in an unsafe area. Don't use this hotel when arriving after dark because the taxis will refuse to take you there since it's too close; not worth their effort unless you overpay a lot.
Secondly, the hotel did not honor my prepaid reservation (Expedia). They claim they didn't work with Expedia anymore and ignored prepaid reservations. Luckily, they gave me a room after I arrived at 11PM (and had a lot of trouble getting in) but I had to pay again.
Expedia was incompetent in figuring out what happened with the original reservation and the hotel was evasive in their communications with Expedia.
I would not use this hotel.
