The Cape Colonial is an established Guest House in a residential area at the foot of Table Mountain.

It is a Victorian town house which has been restored with great care and attention to detail situated in a quiet side street behind the famous Mount Nelson Hotel and just 10 minutes' walk from the city centre through the beautiful Company Garden. The Table Mountain Cable Car is 5 minutes' drive away and the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay and the V & A Waterfront are 10 minutes away.


They are all en-suite with TVs as well as tea/coffee making facilities.

We are a room-only guest house and do not serve breakfast. Just around the corner, in Kloof Street, there are numerous coffee shops and restaurants serving great breakfasts from as early as 6.45am.

Kloof Street is also ideal for an evening out with its many bars and restaurants ranging from “easy eating” to “fine dining”, all within safe walking distance.

Wireless internet access is available.

We also arrange airport transfers on request as well as giving help in arranging tours and booking restaurants. We accept all major
credit cards.
