We have stayed at various places in Camps Bay but this is my favourite. The room was spacious and tastefully furnished, we had a wonderful view from our patio and we liked the convenience of a short walk to the restaurants. The Continental breakfasts were very good also. This is the second time we have stayed at Balfour Place and... More

Had a very enjoyable stay here while in South Africa for a wedding. Handy location for the excellent beach and restaurants/bars along the seafront. Great choice for breakfast too and very helpful staff.

Great location close to the beach as well as local restaurants. Staff on site was very helpfull and friendly. Good value for money considering the Camps Bay location. Luxurious accomodation - not a full english breakfast but was quite good.

Beautiful place to stay in with amazing views of Camps Bay. The location could not have been better. The staff were very nice and helpful and the house was quiet and peaceful. Definitely recommend staying here for your trip to Cape Town as convenient to drive to most tourist spots from here.

This was our first visit to Cape Town and we couldn't have chosen anything better. The accomodation was clean quiet and comfortable. We had a beautiful sea view from a very spacious balcony. Staff were helpful friendly and extremely polite. What more could you ask for. Wish we could have stayed longer, but without doubt will return.

For the true guesthouse experience you need to look no further. The welcoming and homey feel provided by the guesthouse and staff was second to none. Janet, Dominique and Porsha were excellent. Janet helped us with most of our activities during our stay by recommending great white shark tours, a wine tour and guide as well as restaurants and day... More

We stayed at Balfour Place recently and were warmly welcomed. As we couldn't check in due to our early flight, the team were helpful in arranging the room as quickly as possible and allowing us to shower and leave our things. The price is very reasonable for the quality of the room, good size room and the bed was enormous!... More

Balfour house was perfect for a quiet night away on the beach. Very close proximity to promenade at Camps bay. The views of the mountains and beach are outstanding. The minute you walk outside you relax.
