Cape Town Bed & Breakfast Accommodation Kenilworth

Valley Heights B & B Guest House

Cape Town Bed & Breakfast / Guest House accommodation in Kenilworth

Reviewed: August 2003

Valley Heights Bed and Breakfast Guest House is a true "home-from-home" retreat, situated in the peaceful, leafy area of Upper Kenilworth in Cape Town's Southern Suburbs. The Guest House is close to some major tourist attractions, including Newlands cricket and rugby grounds and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. It is also within easy reach of Cape Town City Centre, the V&A Waterfront and Atlantic Seaboard.

Bruce and Jeanie Lane, the charming owner-hosts of Valley Heights, ensured that our overnight stay was comfortable and relaxed in every possible way from the minute we arrived at their triple-story home, which has been converted into both bed & breakfast and self-catering accommodation units.

We were given the very spacious Honeymoon suite, complete with newly renovated bathroom (as per all the suites and rooms) and a separate room for the children. The elegantly decorated room had an extremely comfortable King-sized bed, TV with MNet, tea and coffee making facilities and other thoughtful little "extras" such as cosy hot water bottles and a complimentary bottle of wine.

After settling in, Bruce took us on a tour of the property and showed us the other family unit, the four comfortable double bedrooms and self-catering facilities that Valley Heights provides. The Guest House also offers a large, sunny lounge for guests that opens out onto a patio area with wonderful views of the secluded garden, an outdoor BBQ and garden furniture.

That evening, we decided to take the 5-minute drive to Cavendish Square Shopping Mall for dinner and later returned to enjoy the offerings from the Valley Heights honesty bar (very reasonably priced!)

After a fabulous night's sleep we enjoyed a huge, hearty full English Breakfast in the dining area and met some of the other guests staying with Bruce and Jeannie. All too soon it was time to pack up and thank our hosts for a super stay and for looking after us so well.

Bruce and Jeanie have created a wonderful haven at Valley Heights - ideal for business and holiday accommodation, singles, couples and families. For friendly, personalised service and a comfortable, relaxing stay in Cape Town, we highly recommend Valley Heights B&B Guest House.
