Jambo Guest House

At your hotel

Barry and Mina Thomas have welcomed guests from all corners of the world since first opening their doors in December 1995. Many of these guests have become close friends and many return frequently.

Mina speaks English, German, Hungarian, Hebrew, and Afrikaans and Barry speaks some French.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the guest house free of charge. Smoking is allowed in the garden. All the rooms are non smoking, as per SA legislation. Our guests are welcome to enjoy our lounge, breakfast room, our sunny courtyard, and our tranquil garden whenever they wish.

We can help with car hire at very competitive rates. Mina’s history as a registered tour guide means that she can show you the best routes to take to enjoy all the Cape has to offer. We can also arrange scheduled tours (which fetch and return guests to our door), or private tours.

For special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, honeymoons, birthdays or any other excuse, Barry will do a `Sabrage` and open the Champagne bottle with a ceremonial Machete, the one he used on his adventure driving from England to Cape Town.

Breakfast is served from 8 AM to 10 AM in the Breakfast Room and Courtyard. It is a buffet breakfast consisting of cereals, yoghurts, a selection of cheeses and cream cheeses. A platter of cold meats, a platter of freshly cut seasonal fruit, home made stewed fruit, fruit juice, Ceylon tea, herbal teas, freshly brewed coffee, muffins and a variety of seeded rolls, brown rolls, croissants, low GI seed loaf, and white bread. Barry goes to the local Bakery every morning to fetch freshly baked bread, rolls, and croissants.

The Victorian style home was originally built circa 1885. It stretches between two streets – Pine Road and Grove Road in Green Point. Green Point main road runs nearby, allowing rapid, easy access to us. However, Jambo Guest House nestles in a quiet, cobbled cul-de-sac at the foot of Signal Hill and is very quiet and peaceful.
