It was very convenient and neat.

Very nice stay. If there is a bar fridge in the room I would recommend it for longer periods too. Very neat and clean with good service.

Dit was baie gerieflik en netjies.

Baie lekker gebly. As daar 'n yskassie in die vertrek is sal ek dit kan aanbeveel vir langer tydperke ook. Baie netjies en skoon met goeie diens.

Esther is the perfect hostess whose aim is for her guests to be comfortable and all needs met.

My stay was very comfortable. Especially with Esther available for all my requests including some unusual ones - she was kind and nothing was too much trouble. A perfect hostess.

Top class accommodation at affordable rates.

As business travellers I would stay at The Backyard again. The host and hostess made me feel welcome and were so helpful. I really appreciated the clean linen and the neatness of the place.

Topklas-verblyf teen bekostigbare tariewe.

As sakereisiger sal ek beslis weer by The Backyard tuisgaan. Die gasheer en gasvrou het my welkom laat voel en was ook baie behulpsaam. Wat ek besonders baie waardeer het was dat alles kraakvars skoon en netjies was.

Great place to overnight!

My wife and I travelled to Cape Town for the day only and needed a place to stay. The host, Esther, was extremely helpful and willing to make arrangements for us to clock in late at night. The room was clean, the bed sheets were fresh and the bed was super comfortable. I would definitely recommend The Backyard to anyone!

Thank you, Neall. Hope you will be very happy in CT! Best of luck.

The best place to be just to get away if you want to be alone.

Esther is the best host you can ask for, she is friendly and very helpful I would go back there anytime. Even though it was for one night but it was the best, peaceful, quiet and just lovely to relax.

Thank you, Samantha!! It was lovely having you and your partner.
