Welgelegen Guest House Review

In Afrikaans, welgelegen means "well situated," and this classy guesthouse in two beautifully restored Victorian mansions is just that: it's nestled under Table Mountain and just minutes away from city attractions. Each room is individually and stylishly decorated. The look is a mixture of African chic and romantic whimsy, and the pretty courtyard is a good place to relax after a busy day. If you want more independence, you can opt for a two-bedroom, self-catering cottage down the road.
