    great room, well maintained, clean, hands-on owner / manager

    Steep access stairs, no secure parking.

    Located near the restaurants and beach of Camps Bay and only a short drive towards Cape Town. Very clean, comfort and friendly guest house. As a service we could stay the whole day extra and take a shower because of our late flight back.

    Nothing- a pleasant stay!

    Location - beautiful views and Camps Bay is great for young couples and more mature couples/ travelling families. Room was very nice and the cleaning/ domestic staff were excellent.

    Lack of some basics such as a hair dryer and wifi access in the room (it worked in the passageway) - for the rates being charged I would expect those things to be a given. Cooked breakfasts were noticable in their absence and if they were available we were not made aware of the option. We stayed in a "lodge" in Plettenburg Bay a few days later which cost similar money but was 100% better in every way.

    Very good location in Camps Bay. 5 mins to the beach, good restaurants and the bus stop for the city sightseeing tour. Massive comfortable bed. Balcony & Pool with a nice view of the beach and mountains.

    We had a bathtub with shower which we had to sit in to shower (as there have been leakage problems in the past). This isn't usually much of a problem except that the bathtub was very narrow and it was very uncomfortable for me (average size man) to wash properly. The picture on the TV was fuzzy. The remote control for the DVD player didn't work (which was annoying as we had brought DVDs with us to watch). Upon arrival at check in time there was nobody to greet us other than a maid, who was very friendly but who struggled to help us with where to leave the car parked and with other general questions and formalities. Did not meet the owner/manager untill the next morning (this felt strange as we had received such wonderful hospitality everywhere else on the Garden Route!).

    Spacious room; beautiful view; convenient location

    Towels: there were no bath sheets, just standard size and they were not fluffy. Also they were not replenished every day. We like fresh fluffy towels. There was no hairdryer. The toilet seat was loose. The M-Net channel did not work and there was a particular programme that I wanted to watch.

    Interior was excellent. Sheila the maid was lovely. Location is excellent. Pool table was fun.

    Poor internet connectivity in the room, which I would expect to be better for the price. Breakfast did not include anything cooked, but was nice.

  • Single

    Superb. Room with a view: mountains, forest, beach and ocean. Beachside town and Foreshore with shops and restaurants are literally a 5 minute walk away. Hiking and nature reserves with mountain streams nearby including cableway to famous Table Mountain. Beautifully furnished and well maintained. Delicious continental breakfast. Cape Town city 15 minute drive away.

    Not pram or wheelchair friendly since there are many steps.

    We really loved this place! Its a big house with 5 guest rooms and a big lounge and kitchen area and terrace downstairs. All the rooms have an amazing view over Camps Bay and the mountains. The two smaller rooms are very cozy but if you like a bit of space def go for the deluxe rooms. The best views are from the rooms on the top floor (nr. 4 and 5). Most of the time the house is very quiet and it feels like you have the place to yourselves. The breakfast is simple but has a good collection of fruits and pastries. The pool is small like in almost every hotel in Cape Town but the terrace has sun almost the whole day and there is a big tree if you prefer to be in the shade. The walk down to the boulevard is about 5 min and the place feels very safe, also in the evening.

    It would be nice to have a hot option for breakfast, like eggs.
