It was wonderful

I liked the accomodation but would be nice to have bigger rooms so I can meet more people. More options on the breakfast menu would be nice too.

The establishment is very run down and the breakfast was something to behold. Two scrambled eggs and 2 pieces of toast plus coffee. That's it - full stop. No choices, you get the eggs scrambled and that is it. If you ask for sunny side up the answer is no, it is not on today's menu.

We needed an overnight stop before flying to Jhb. It met all our needs. Staff all friendly and extremely helpful. Wish U Were Here is quite a quirky property, basic but clean, comfortable and close to town. Secure parking and a small restaurant offering light meals.

What an in incredible gem! We have two little children and we all loved our stay over two nights. Lourens and his staff are very helpful and generous. Rooms are spotless. We will definitely be back 😀

We were pleasantly surprised by this little gem in the middle of this neighbourhood. We had a good stay and staff are friendly and helpful. Lovely breakfast.
Looking forward to our next visit to Cape Town
