Rude and offensive management staff. Staff were not welcoming or warm at all. The bath tub was dirty. Good location with a nice view. Decent sized room that was fairly comfortable. Walking distance from camps bay promanade.

We stayed at Balfour Place Guesthouse for 2 nights during April 2015. The view from Guesthouse is amazing. Location is perfect as you can walk to beachfront and enjoy the restaurant buzz Just want to personally thank the staff at Balfour Place Guesthouse that accommodated our family and really went the extra mile (not asked for) by upgrading our room...

Maybe it was only our room (no. 2 standard room) but for the price it was a bit too small and unimaginative especially the bathroom. Bits and pieces were not to our satisfaction such as some loose handles. The pool was good, although a bit small as well. Breakfast was good and Portia very nice, but again not the best... More

We had a wonderful stay in Balfour Place. The staff were extremely helpful and kind to us. The breakfast were gorgeous. We loved our comfortable and cool bedroom and sitting at the pool. Special thanks to Portia and Dominique.

This place is one of the best place for your holiday. An amazing view, delicious breakfast, lovely and helpful staff...Also, it's always full-up. So, don't forget to book 5 or 6 months before your holiday.

Thanks for a wonderful stay for 4 nights in March. The Guesthouse is Lovely, the staff are super friendly, location is perfect with just a couple of minute walk to the beach and bars and supermarket. We stayed in room 5 which was great, very quiet of an evening and stunning views of the bay and the mountains.

We had the most wonderful stay at the guesthouse. From the moment we arrived felt so welcome and at home. We had room number 1, a very large lovely room.Beautiful sea view and great location. Great breakfast to start the day!

We stayed in the standard room (2), which by South African standards is tiny, but is fairly average by international standards. There was a large living area downstairs which was very nice and allows those that want to spend time at the hotel, not to be stuck in the cramped room. The mattress was quite thin and wasn't ideal. The... More

Stayed in the Honeymoon Suite with my fiance and loved it. Very reasonably priced considering the space and room quality (except dodgy sliding door lock) and would not hesitate to stay again. Very nice breakfast, great view, great location with walk to beach front two minutes. Parking outside a plus as this can be tough in Camps Bay. Cannot really... More

Unfortunately, we had only booked in at Balfour Place for 3 nights - we wished it had been more. The location in Camps Bay is exceptional, back from the noisy beach front on Victoria Road, but only 5 minutes walk away, and with fantastic views from the terrace. The room was very spacious, not too cluttered and very clean and... More
