Finchley guesthouse is lovely and quite away from the city hustle, yet close enough to enjoy the beach front and the beauty of camps bay, south africa. The guys at the guest house are very attentive, very friendly and ready to assist with everything a guest could need. I will definitely stay there again!

Hotel is in a good location, close to all the restaurants in Camps Bay but you don't hear all the hustle and bustle. Restaurants were also open on Christmas day. The room was neat and tidy. There was a bar fridge in an open cupboard, hence was very noisy at night. There are only 3 TV channels, so always plan... More

Thank you so much for staying at Finchley. We enjoyed having you around. We appreciate the comments which will make us improve. We have already fixed the shower heads. The fridge was not properly sited, it was adjusted. It's unfortunate, the egg was not done the way you expected, this has been looked into. We hope to host you again... More

We stayed here in October when it was very early in the season and we were the only guests. Finchley House is in a good location in Camps Bay being only a 10 minute walk or so to the bars and restaurants situated by the beach. The house manager Dominique was very friendly and helpful and cooked us a good... More

The Pros: Nice house, well located in Camps Bay, close to the beach with nice see view, room OK. The cons: The owner seems to be always on travel overseas, so this is more an hotel than a guest house, in terms of interactions with the personnel. Moreover, the swimming pool was dirty but nobody seemed to take the decision... More

The room was superb, it has a little swimming pool in the front. The staff was really friendly, and the whole house was beautiful and confortable. The beach is just 10 minutes walk.

Lovely place to stay if you're in CT for a few days, very close to Camps Bay and beautifully furnished. Staff could not do enough and run by owners, which is always the way to go.

My stay at FH was absolutely amazing. The most impressive of all the view from the Swimming Pool deck and Terrace its absolutely breathtaking. I can with no doubt advise anyone to go and experience a Sundowner on the deck chairs next to the pool. And thats only the start. The Interior design and decoration is very tastefully done and...

Had heard and read some mixed reviews, decided to give it a go anyway. Am I glad we did. Found out that there has been a change in management. If there were problems before, they have all dissapeared. The location is STUNNING, rooms are awesome, and a breakfast second to none. Staff all very friendly and helpfull, and a lovely... More
