We only stayed for one night but it was great value for money. Barry and Mina are a lovely couple, always there to help and Barry's English style pub is great. We all had an enjoyable stay.

I would just like to thank Barry and Mina for making our stay absolutely wonderful! From the delicious breakfasts, to the charming rooms (the Bay Room is very cosy and romantic), to Barry's wonderfully quirky singing - we loved every minute of our stay at Jambo. Thanks so much to everyone who made our trip to Cape Town memorable!

Jambo is a wonderful little Cape Town bed & breakfast. Barry and Mina are extremely helpful, and the most friendly people you will ever meet. They were definitely one of the highlights of my stay. The others would be the superb contemporary accommodation and scrumptious breakfasts. Jambo is possibly the best Green Point accommodation I have ever stayed at. Thank you to Barry, Mina and the rest of the staff for a terrific holiday!

We had a fantastic experience staying at Jambo! Barry and Mina were fantastic hosts and the place is beautiful. Should you be stopping over in Green Point, please make this your number one choice of guest house, not only because it is within walking distance of the waterfront and the stadium, but because it feels like home away from home. You won't be disappointed!

Our definition of cape town's "big five": A view from table mountain, a trip to Robben Island, the drive to Cape Point, tea at the Mount Nelson and an extended stay at Mina and Barry, where the welcome is as warm as the weather.

Barry and Mina, Thank you so much for everything! The Jambo really put a "magic touch" to our visit to the cape and made it that memorable stay we were hoping for. We'll love to see you again! Lots of love.
