Lovely decorated, every room has a own little story to tell. And the best breakfast in town. Hand made with love by the one and... More

Lovely setting, Trevor and June are very welcoming hosts and the room really comfortable. Breakfast is good enough to set you up for the whole day. Excellent base from which to explore everything the region has to offer, if you can get yourself to leave the pool deck!

Very friendly and helpful hosts. Nice atmosphere with a big and comfortable room. Great breakfast, you could wish for nothing more! Wonderful setting above Hout Bay. If we ever get to the Cape Town region again, this would be my first choice.

Amblewood was just wonderful , fantastic views and just a five minute walk to town. Trevor and June were wonderful hosts and dropped us at the market and picked us up again. If you stay in Hout Bay then there is no better place to stay, great breakfast too !

We can't say enough about our wonderful week at the Amblewood. The friendliness and professionalism of Trevor and June was outstanding. The accommodation was lovely with views that you can only imagine in a dream! Breakfast on the deck each morning (overlooking Hout Bay and Sentinel Rock) were outstanding. Every detail was seen to....from the music playing in the background... More

A wonderful stay in a great room with the most spectacular views. Thank you Joan & Trevor for the lovely breakfast each day. The house is in a nice quiet, safe, off the beaten track spot. Their beautiful Labrador passed away whilst I was there and I know it will leave a huge hole in their and their visitors hearts.... More

Fantastic reception, location and making me feeling welcome followed up by wonderful service and quality accommodation. Trevor and June were great hosts and gave me space but were there when I needed them. It must be one of the most beautiful locations in South Africa

June and Trevor are excellent hosts - warm, friendly and knowledgeable, with lots of good advice on where to eat and visit. The property is in a quiet spot with great views. Our standard room was large and comfortable.
