“Fantastic guest house”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Stayed here for a week during a business and pleasure trip to South Africa. This is a fantastic hotel/guest house! It is a converted colonial-type house, with high ceilings, wood beams and a general airy feel. The rooms are huge and very luxurious. Some rooms (2 & 3) have amazing views out over Cape Town and Devil's peak. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the breakfasts are cooked to order. I can think of no negative points about this place.

Room Tip: go for rooms 2 & 3 if they're available.

This is the perfect place to start a holiday in Cape Town and the Garden Route, and one could not fault Floreal House in its position at the foot of Table Mountain. The staff are exceptional and the facilities perfect, the breakfast is superb and the daily snack menu very suitable for during the day. Our only criticism is that without a car it is a long walk down into Cape Town and even more of a hike back up hill!!! It really is necessary to have a car at Floreal House from Day 1. It is an ideal base for any holiday in the area. We could not recommend it more highly.

Room Tip: We had a room on the ground floor which was fine, very well equipped. Other rooms in the building a...

Truly a home away from home. I have been staying at the Floreal House for the past 7+years during my business trips and every stay is always better than the previous. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious, modern and extremely cosy. Each room is equipped with a fully stocked bar fridge as well as a snack basket (honesty bar). What makes the place extra special is the main lounge area where you can either sit back relax and watch some TV or just mingle with the other guests and make conversation. Breakfasts are always good, serving the best of local. My home away from home.

Floreal House is situated right at the foot of Table Mountain. Actually, you cannot get much closer! Beautiful views of Table Mountain and the harbour right in front of you. The guest house has such a warm and inviting character. Luxurious and very pleasant.

With a fantastic view of Table Mountain from our room we couldn't have asked for a better base for our time in Cape Town. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was the perfect start for a day site seeing. Great little B&B.
