This was our second trip to South Africa and we spent little time in Cape Town but needed to stay our last night there. We had stayed in Camps Bay on our last trip and loved it so it was a no brainer to go back there. Accommodation was hard to find but we managed to get a room here.... More

Based on the room we had for five days, I have to say that I think they rely on their position in Camps Bay. The staff are very nice and again the location is great. Our room however was tired and in desperate need of a refresh. The carpet was stained, the white washed furniture was grotty and it was... More

Dear Guest sjbm from Perth, We thank you for your response to your stay at 61 On Camps Bay. We will certainly look into the overall appearance of the whitewashed look of the rooms. However this white washed and crisp white and turquoise look does have a great deal of appeal for many of our visitors who are keen to... More

beautiful place with terrance with ocean view and Tamara was so nice...she suggested and booked daily trip and resturants! The breakfast was Amazing! The only inconvinience is that you don't have the ocean view in the breakfast and you need to walk 15 minutes to reach the city with resturants and beach

Lovely clean, tidy guest house, friendly reception with stunning views from the upstairs rooms, only unfortunate aspect is the location right at a busy 3 way intersection which is very noisy at night.

Generally 61 on Camps bay was great! Very friendly and helpful staff and the room was comfortable and always clean. Fantastic location! Unfortunately there were issues with the wifi and the television was the size of a of small microwave oven so if you plan on hiding from the sun for a day, staying in is not an option.

A perfect place to stay for my first visit to Capetown. The location was in easy and safe walking distance to the beach, handy for exploring the city and the room was lovely!

61 on Camps Bay gave us what we were looking for. A great room, excellent and convenient location, good service and friendly staff. It is within walking distance of the sea front which is great.

Well positioned but the traffic can be a bit noisy as it is situated on a 3 way stop. Walking distance to Camps Bay beach and many restaurants. Very friendly host although she does not live on the property.

The staff was really nice especially Tamara the manager who was lovely to deal with and very helpful. The B&B is only 5 min walk to the waterfront so it's close to all restaurants.
