We stayed for two nights at the end of our holiday and found the girls at reception very welcoming but no parking available outside our guest house. Note there are two properties here both with exceedingly steep drives and parking was definitely an issue. Its also a fair distance to hout bay not walking distance for sure but the views... More

We spent a fantastic 4 days at Dreamhouse in Hout Bay. The staff were very friendly and attentive, service was excellent and the breakfast one of the best we have had in any hotel or B&B. We initially had an issue with our room, as it was not a suite with a balcony as we thought. Still not sure whether... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed @ the Dreamhouse. It is an exceptional property with wonderful views of the mountain, Chapmans Peak and the sea. Our room ( the silver suite ) was spotlessly clean and well laid out. Only downside was the lesser view,on our previous visit we had booked one of the rooms at a higher... More

A B&B is not where we would normally stay when visiting Cape Town. However, we are so glad we came across this one. Stunning location nestled on side of mountain with amazing views over the Bay and across the valley. The staff were very friendly and excelled in customer service nothing was ever too much trouble. The room (Orange) was... More

The Dreamhouse was fantastic. While the room itself was not spectacular (a little pokey, we were in the green room), it was well decorated and functional. The staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable, with "good night drinks" served to our room, chocolates on our pillows, and other small things to make our stay as positive... More

Dreamhouse B&B was a fabulous guesthouse with stunning views overlooking Cape Town. The staff were all friendly, and they gave excellent advice when asked. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Best of all, however, were the wonderful breakfasts, which our family voted best in Africa, as we didn't have nay quite as good at any of the other hotels we... More

We had a delightful two day stay at the Dreamhouse. A warm welcome from our hosts and a good explanation of the facilities provided. Breakfast is a highlight with the best bread basket I have ever come across. Cold platter very nice presented. We did not even bother to take the offer of a cooked breakfast as the bread and...
