“Dreadful!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2008

we found this place on the internet and they gave us a quote changing rooms half way through our stay. there was no other accommodation so we gave it a go.
there is a catch...... there are two bateleurs guest houses! one looks lovely with big spacious modern over priced rooms and the other is in a 70's time warp, with small rooms that look like something out of an old people home.
we arrived at the first of the two guest houses and were sent to the old peoples place. Perhaps they didn't like the look of our money!!!!
we the discovered that they had booked us into the second place against our wishes but had already deducted the money from our credit card so we ended up here at bateleurs on Rontree.
the place is over priced in typical camps bay style, the pool area is ok, breakfast not bad, rooms dated..... if you can block out the whining voice of the guest house manager constantly buzzing in your ear like a mosquito you may well have a plesant stay here. We didn't!

  • Liked — free internet access on the guest house laptop
  • Disliked — the dreadful over the top manager
