Welgelegen House, RETURN Africa’s acclaimed guest house in Cape Town, has achieved the #1 ranking in its category out of 80 properties on TripAdvisor. This milestone comes shortly after Welgelegen House received the 2023 Travellers’ Choice Award and was listed #2 out of 189 accommodation providers in the city.

Nestled in the tranquil Oranjezicht suburb, and combining two renovated Victorian houses, Welgelegen House has excelled across categories including location, cleanliness, service, and value for money.

“We are truly humbled that our guests have rated Welgelegen House as Cape Town’s #1 guest house,” said Ayanda Prince, General Manager. “This recognition is a proud achievement that speaks to our team’s hard work and dedication to exceptional service. At RETURN Africa, we strive to create experiences that make guests feel so welcome that they’re eager to return to Welgelegen and to our other properties.”

Complementing the Pafuri Collection in Kruger National Park and the newly-opened An African Story in Camps Bay, Welgelegen House exemplifies RETURN Africa’s hospitality vision.

Prince added, “The Welgelegen team takes immense pride in this accomplishment and continually raises the bar on guest experiences. We’ve recently added a private guide to further elevate our hospitality with enriching local insights and personalised service.”
