I booked a week at Hout Bay View on a trip down for a friends birthday. I had a room at the front, which had views over the valley to the mountains from the windows and there we also great views from the main sun terrace at the front over to the mountains and to the harbour. The location is... More

This guesthouse boasts a fantastic view over Hout Bay (the Atlantic ocean and the mountains)... The building is modern and situated in a peaceful suburb. The room is cosy (in opther words not very big) and the bathroom had a basin toilet and shower. No bath (which was unfortunate for my wife)... There was no aircon in the room, only... More

Wow, what an awesome trip to South Africa, with our final week guests of Andrew & Brian at Hout Bay view. Fantastic and friendly service. Comfortable rooms and exquisite views. They really added the cherry to our stay in South Africa. Thanks so much for everything.

We loved our stay at Hout Bay View, Andrew, Brian and their staff were very friendly and welcoming, the rooms and guest areas were very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. There is a lovely patio were you can light some candles and enjoy a drink overlooking the fishing village and bay. There is also a large spa with lounge chairs... More

I discovered this B&B a couple of years ago and have stayed there at least 8 times now. The location is ideal. All the rooms are meticulously maintained and the hosts and staff are simply fabulous. The breakfasts (included in the rate) are 5 star and the breakfast menu rotates daily. The facilities are outstanding and the gardens are beautiful.... More

A large group of us stayed here for a few days - we occupied more than half of the guesthouse rooms. The rooms were disappointingly small, apart from the 2 main ones (ask for these if you stay there - number 1 and 2), and they were also very sparsely furnished and basic. The views may be spectacular, but there... More

We stayed for 5 days in March 2010. It was very clean and Andrew and Brian were very knowledgeable and helpful indeed. It is located in a quiet street but within easy reach of all the attractions in Cape Town and Cape Point. There is also very reliable wireless internet access in the rooms.

The sign at the entrance says 'a view with a room' however it should specifically say that the view is from the front terras while the guest rooms are on the back, very small and have opaque windows facing a wall at 1m distance! Very small bathroom with basic sliding door to bedroom.

Before booking this place, we searched the internet, and the foto's were beautiful. They showed a wonderfull view and great rooms. What a disappointment. There are large rooms, but you have to demand them when you book, because afterwards there is not much help to expect from the owners. Booked and prepayed we were offered at first a room without...

Me and my husband stayed at the Hout Bay View for ten days in January 2009. We wanted to relax and just take it easy, since our next ten days would be on the road. In South Africa B&B's in my opinion is the best stay you can get, and I normally prefer large hotels. But the B&B's are cosy... More
