I spent a week in le Bijou, my own little corner of this gracious, old home. It felt like I was at home! I came and went as I pleased and at no time felt unsafe or uncomfortable as a single traveller. I would recommend Auberge Therese to anyone needing accommodation in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town. As a smoker, I had my own little private terrace where I could sit outside to enjoy my morning tea.
I first chose the Auberge because of proximity to family in Cape Town, but would definitely return because I had a marvelous time there! The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated (I was in the Bijou). It had all the utensils I needed in the kitchen. The shoulder of Table Mountain was a lovely backdrop as I enjoyed the fresh air with my tea and rusks every morning in my private yard. Towels were changed daily except Sunday. The bed was very comfortable. At my request Theresa left me shampoo in the bathroom but there was also body lotion, cotton wool and lovely liquid hand and body soap. A warm welcome note awaited me, along with a lovely arrangement of lavender flowers and some wine for a sundowner! Theresa has a hands-off, non-interfering approach, which I liked, but was always immediately responsive whenever I communicated a request or had a question and gave me spot-on touring advice (even lent me an umbrella). When I left hand made biscuits awaited me in the room with a warm farewell note and a little branch of rosemary. I highly recommend staying here, I had a wonderful time! It is centrally located and the free Wifi worked very well.
My wife and I spent 3 months there. We had a wonderful comfortable stay which we thoroughly enjoyed. Theresa and Walter the owners made us feel at home from day 1 and we would certainly plan for another stay in the future. The accommodation is in a nice residential area with close proximity to some of the major places of interests in and around Cape Town. Thanks for making our stay so great.
What a wonderful setting in beautiful Cape Town. We were made to feel very welcome and the rooms were lovely and cosy. The accommodation is very central and all of Cape Towns sites are easy accessible. We would definitely go back when in Cape Town again.
Our family spent the Easter weekend at Auberge Therese. We were welcomed eventhough we arrived early and were able to drop off our luggage. It was very well situated with easy access to shopping centres and main roads. Theresa recommended places for us to eat lunch, taking into account we had a small child with us, and advised us on takeaway places for our evening meal. The accommodation is very comfortable with a fridge, crockery, cutlery, tea, coffee and milk supplied. It was serviced daily, including Sunday, and always had clean, dry towels available. We were made to feel very comfortable in very relaxed surrounding. On Easter Sunday, our granddaughter loved her Easter egg hunt in the beautiful courtyard garden. It felt like home away from home and definitely worth another visit.
Wonderful position in Claremont - stunning mountain views and easy walk to Cavendish Shopping centre. Owners very friendly and extremely helpful for our needs. Loft apartment big enough for 2 adult AND 2 little kids, only snag are the steps outside to get to the door (not good with a pram!). Otherwise a peaceful and comfy place when visiting Claremont!
I stayed over for 2 nights in the Le Grenier room. Beautifully decorated room with ample space and lovely views of the mountain. Theresa was very friendly and helpful. It is centrally located in Claremont with easy access to all main routes.
My husband and I spent a wonderful long weekend at Auberge Therese. We received first class treatment from the time we arrived to the time we left. From a beautifully stocked fridge with all sorts of tasty treats to helpful advice on wine farms and restaurants. The loft room is tastefully decorated with all amenities, and we genuinely lacked for nothing. Thank you Theresa for making us feel more like family than guests, we had an amazing time and will definitely be back
