Gilmour Hill is a superb retreat at the edge of the city. Relax and rejuvenate in style in this perfectly located bed and breakfast. Nestled between Cape Town’s city bowl and Lion’s head is the quiet suburb of Tamboerskloof.

Gilmour Hill stands at the slopes of Table Mountain and is a beautifully appointed Victorian home with 4 en suite bedrooms, a central dining area, living area in winter, a big outside patio with a potted garden, which like the house brims with character and life.

Gilmour Hill is situated in the very heart of the ‘10-minute suburb’ of Tamboerskloof, everything around the city is a mere 10-minute taxi ride; the vibrant city centre, the Convention Centre, Camps Bay & Clifton beaches, the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain and Lion’s head. The bustling Kloof Street with its countless restaurants and shops is within walking distance of the house. We are close to public transport and have off-street parking too.

Gilmour Hill is brilliant for business people as access to the CBD and international Airport is so easy. This home is also ideal when looking for accommodation for the whole family for events such as weddings because you can take over the whole house.
