The local tourism office directed us to this B&B, and how lucky we were! It was from this location that we explored the Winelands - Franschoek and Stellenbosch - very easy to do. This home is truly beautiful - decor is so nicely done, I could simply move in! Breakfast was served from a lovely sideboard upstairs. The view is spectacular. Very deserving of 5 stars!


A mere "5" rating does not do Room with a View and the owners, Hanli and Danie, justice. My wife and I stayed there for three weeks in March and April and were very reluctant to leave. Our room was a beautifully appointed suite surrounded by a balcony with astounding views over False Bay, Gordon's Bay and Helderburg Mountain. Our hosts were warm and friendly, always concerned with our comfort yet discreet. We enjoyed perfect privacy and security and felt truly at home. The "Continental" breakfast was a delightful spread with fresh fruit and juice, meats,eggs and fresh rolls warm from the bakery and Hanli was very willing to meet the requests of guests.
The location is great for touring around some of the most attractive countryside anywhere - mountains, vineyards and sea wherever you look.
We will return!

My family and I recently resided at this establishment. We were most impressed. Excellent service and hospitality. The views are unparalleled. Dani and Hanli have done well to create a top level b&b, but still maintain a warm homely ambience. Highly recommended.


I recently stayed over on way back from Cape town at this fantastic B&B, The rooms are beautifully decorated and all have the most amazing views of the mountains, Oceans and City. I was made to feel very welcome by the ownersHanli & Dani who are doing a great Job.
It was a great experience and I only wish I had stayed longer.

I will be back.

I book a room for a German colleague of mine on a business trip, everything was made easy by Hanli and she really made you feel welcome. My colleague was not happy that I only booked one night here, and said that she will be back with her family in nereby future. Highly recommended.

A warm welcome! All rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and all have stunning views from Table Mountain, all around the bay to the mountains behind. Hanli and Danie provide wonderful hospitality in a friendly atmosphere, nothing is too much for them. Thank you Hanli and Danie

Every room is a representation of the name, "Room with a view" over the False Bay area and the famous Helderberg. This is a true "home from home" experience. I will make sure to visit again

What a wonderful place "Room with a View" is. We stayed with Danie and Hanli for 10 days, it was a very special time. Their home is perfection, lovingly cared for by these 2 delightful people.Nothing was too much trouble for them, their hospitality is second to none.. We have made friends for life!!!

Peace and quiet was what I needed and this was the perfect place to get just that. Beautifully decorated room with crisp clean linen made me feel like a queen. Thanks for the blessing Danie and Hanli!

We were in early December after a motorcycle trip through South Africa, the last 4 nights in Room with a View B & B. We had reservations and were given a lovely room overlooking Somerset West to the sea. The room has a small kitchenette and good facilities. The pool is located in front of the rooms in addition to a covered seating area. The B & B is located on the outskirts in a well kept neighborhood. Breakfast is served upstairs in the owners as a buffet. You can have breakfast on the veranda with a wonderful view. The bikes were way too safe. The owner offered to use a garage for this purpose, which we gladly accepted. Overall, a successful completion of a fantastic trip. PS ... It was Harry ... ;-)
