Staff service was good with help forthcoming in the lift without requesting. Has potential. Needs more attention to guest care and room readiness in general. The room is cold with the wall heater insufficient. Recently refurbished with ceiling not properly done. Water wasted when the hot water takes at from three to five minutes to start flowing. Management need to... More

Basic lodging, nothing fancy. Hotel at the end of long beachfront. Our room was quite small, the wifi is verrrrrry slow. Not really a placy to plan your holiday around. There is safe parking in the basement. Although there is a fish restaurant downstairs there is no other restaurants in the area.

The upmarket price was not reflected by Management by name Colin that promised to get back to us regarding the duty manager at reception when we booked in the evening. The sub-standard room that was linked to another room. The real bad breakfast experience. The hotel is not worth more than R290 pp breakfast including and not R1400.00 as paid.... More

Not good. Arrived and followed the sign to the basement hotel parking area. Tried to use the lift, but where I would have pressed the button to go up, there was only an open hole with electrical wires dangling about, so I had to take the stairs instead. Reception not very well organized - took about 20 minutes just to... More

This hotel is in serious need of attention. It is quite modern, but the facilities are very badly maintained. Even the switches for the lifts were broken - the all-important ground-floor one had only a "Down" switch, and others had unsafe-looking holes that you poked in hope. In the conference centre, one of the two toilets was broken, the electric... More

The rooms are very nice. We had a self catering unit and it was spacious and had everything you need. From your balcony and bedroom you have uninterrupted sea view, which is awesome. Parking in the basement is very small and we could not park in our allocated space. Ocean Basket being on the ground floor of the hotel makes... More

Had four of my guests who were visiting Capetown & they had an awesome time at Ocean View Hotel. There were staying in the penthouse & the staff was very friendly & the food was awesome,. The penthouse has an awesome sea view, i would definately recomend staying there.

Hotel room is ok, but the beds are terribly uncomfortable. The smell from the Ocean Basket is disgusting. Rooms are only cleaned very 4 days and the rate does not include breakfast. The parking allocated to us was given to someone else, leaving us with no-where to park. Service levels were totally unacceptable. Overall a really disappointing experience. There are... More
