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

Although the view from the Room was to die for - The rooms were grubby, the food was not really anything to write home about and the Lift worked on occasion and I preferred to walk up the flights of stairs as two differing people had advised that they got stuck in the lift. I was there on a conference... More

I took my husband for his birthday to Ocean View Hotel. When we made the reservations they told me that there is a new owner, so I didn't know what to expect. When we came there we had great service and the staff was very kind and helpful. Our room was clean and the view was amazing! The food was... More

My husband and I really looked forward to time away with our toddler for the weekend and the fact that we were on the beachfront made us even more excited.
