Jambo Guest House is within easy walking distance of the V&A Waterfront and restaurants offering luxurious and comfortable accommodation with true hospitality. The guesthouse was the winner of the AA Travel Accommodation Awards for six consecutive years.

Jambo Guest House offers style and old world charm, but most of all, sincere and friendly hospitality by the owners Barry and Mina Thomas, who will also gladly assist with airport shuttles, car hire, tours, or just friendly advice on places of interest to visit.

Jambo Guest House features five uniquely decorated, luxurious and comfortable double rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. Each room is equipped with a safe, TV (M-Net), mini-bar-fridge, telephone, tea/coffee, fan, hair dryer, radio-alarm-clock and top-of-the-range beds. Winter guests will enjoy electric blankets, down duvets, heaters and heated towel rails in the bathrooms. Two rooms have fireplaces.

Guests can relax in Barry’s Private Bar (much like an English Pub), where everyone meets, chats, listens to music, or plays a game of kerem. A koi pond, and an open-air, heated Jacuzzi Spa are situated in the charming garden surrounds, and is available for the enjoyment of all guests – the ultimate relaxation. Free Wi-Fi is also available.

Jambo Guest House is an oasis of peace and tranquillity, yet situated within 10 minutes walking distance of the V&A Waterfront. The Waterfront is built around a working harbour offering bars and restaurants on the waters edge, a large shopping mall with many more restaurants, shops, cinemas and craft markets. Many sailing tours leave from there, as well as helicopter tours. It is an interesting and exciting place to visit and very safe to walk around.

There are five good restaurants only a two-minute walk away from Jambo Guest House and the city centre is a four-minute drive away. In the city one can find the Castle, Green Market Square Flea Market, the Company Gardens and Parliament, National Gallery, Museum and the Planetarium. The world famous Table Mountain provides a magnificent backdrop to the city, and a five-minute drive takes you to the Lower Cable Station.
