We had a delightful week staying in this Guest House. The views from our window over Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean were stunning. The owner (Merryl) and all the staff were all extremely helpful during our stay, with advice on where to go and what to see. They organised car hire for the end of our trip. The room... More

Great location, right by the restaurants and bars. Our room was lovely, great views, very comfortable and stylish. Great breakfast! The best aspect was the service, unobtrusive but very efficient, lots of advice and recommendations regarding what to do in and around Camps Bay and personal touches which made our stay very special. A big thank to Merryl, Steve and... More

Fantastic guesthouse! Great views overlooking Camps Bay and conveniently located a short distance to the beach front and all the restaurants. Meryll has to be the nicest hostess we've ever met, amazingly friendly and has loads of great tips on places to eat/drink and things to do. The guesthouse itself is lovely, really well decorated and our room was immaculate.... More

Look, you can see all the other 5 star reviews... what can I say? This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. And as of October 2010, if you ask Meryll nicely she will show you the new puppy!

Great location, attentive service, fine attention to detail. Ask for the front room, it costs a little more but is a lovely space. Just up the road from Camps Bay beach. We loved our time in Cape Town and 51 was a big part of the reason why. Also great in the Cape are Bravado's for pizza and Boo Radley's... More

'We stayed one night at this place - the view over the coast was incredible. The design of the room can only be described as a vision - the walk-in bathroom, great lighting and small touches like fresh petals on the towels meant that our visit was amazing. We will definitely go back.
