What a delightful place to stay - beautifully appointed yet still felt like a home. The view is exceptional and the guest house is positioned conveniently close to all the amenities but is still peaceful. The only "niggle" was the precipitous stairs and I was just glad that I had younger travel companions who could take my luggage up down... More

The owners and staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and the small 'cafe' on site is a great idea. The location is only a couple of minutes walk from Kloof St for shops and restaurants and...

Our experience at 5 Camp Street was above what we could have expected. Emmy and Ignette gave our family a very warm welcome. Having just arrived in SA our queries regarding a family stay in the area were answered professionally and personally. They are experts at making people happy!
