I travel often and I stay at five star establishments, routinely. Just before we were in Cape Town, I was in the Intercontinental in Dubai. Let me tell you that I have never ever received customer service from anyone of the level Ocean View House staff provided during our stay in Cape Town. Their staff is absolutely amazing, each and...

Fabulous location overlooking the sea and ideally located in a quiet part of Camps Bay only 6 miles from Cape Town's V&A. Also very easy access for Table Mountain. Room 17 is one of the best rooms at the facility with a fabulous shower and loads of fresh soft towels. The staff are very attentive and caring and pay attention... More

We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast, the staff was always very helpful and nice. The garden and the environment was great! We liked the room and enjoyed sitting on the Terrasse . It is about 1.5 km from Camps Bay , where you find many restaurants and a wonderful beach. It is possible to rent bicycles so you can do nice... More

The location is excellent! Between Capetown and Cape point. Nice beach nearby. Quiet. Nice ocean view! Good breakfast and once a week a nice buffet. Enough parkingplaces for the cars. We will be back, one day, I hope!

We stayed at Ocean View House for just one night as we live locally but the room was amazing. The whole place was lovely and clean, lovely decor on the room (including the glass bottom bathroom floor). The room from our bed was lovely. All in all - Great view, lovely service and a great breakfast!

Very enjoyable stay. Fantastic rooms, facilities and meals. Staff were very friendly. I will recommend Ocean View House to any business traveller. Proximity to Cape Town CBD is also ideal and perfectly located to enjoy Hout Baai and surrounding areas.

We returned in 2014 with high expectations and were not disappointed. The room we stayed in had been refurbished to a very high standard and the food (breakfast and optional lunches) goes from strength to strength, making for excellent value all round. We were genuinely saddened to say our goodbyes to the fabulous staff - and can't wait to make... More
