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.

Spacious rooms and bathrooms, beautifully decorated, very classy, excellent location, management and staff friendly and funny! You will not find better value for money anywhere else in Cape Town. Wonderful ambiance and relaxed atmosphere, you are really made to feel like it's your own home.

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

Although I had several emails back and forth with the guesthouse when we arrived at Finchley House they had no record of our reservation. We were shown to the room I had reserved and it wasn't clean so we had to sit out on the balcony while it was cleaned, sheets were changed etc. Apparently the guesthouse had been sold... More

Perfect setting but pool out of commission. Security very lax indeed - safes in rooms were burgled. Any one could have access to the place as it was left open all day with no manager to supervise who came and went - including new guests!! Could be perfect with proper management - take note Martinet!!!
