From the moment you arrive you sense the great hospitality of Trevor and June who are such perfect hosts. Our room was stunning as was the view down to Hout Bay. Breakfast cooked and served to perfection after having started off with a great selection of tropical fruits from the buffet. If passing through Hout Bay again would definitely make... More

Fabulous big clean room, with own terrace and glorious view. Comfortable bed and wake up to an excellent breakfast. Ideal for Cape Town, the amazing countryside and the bay visible from the bedroom. The owners Trevor and June are so kind and helpful; truly nothing is too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending Amblewood as a wonderful... More

Amblewood is a jewel with top quality accommodation and fantastic views across Hout Bay. Trevor and June are the ideal hosts, very welcoming but never intrusive. Hout Bay itself is a charming fishing village and ideally located for visiting both Cape Town and the whole of the Cape, provided you have a car. We had a great time, in short... More

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

Trevor and June provide wonderfully friendly service from a superb location in Hout Bay. Rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. A really good breakfast is provided and the common area and pool deck provide a lovely setting in which to relax. The location is perfect for exploring Cape Town and the... 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
