“It OK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

It's a great B&B with very friendly staff. I did think it was rather pricey, but then again it was over a school holiday and it is a prime location. Staff are friendly and breakfast pretty good. Location is pretty central, a bit noisy as there is a busy intersection in front of the lodge. It is clean and has nice maps and info available to guests and staff are very helpful in this regard.

Room Tip: Not close to the front reception area as it is noisy when other guests come in late at night

This is a really nice option if you want to stay in Camps Bay. It is within walking distance of the beach and main restaurant strip, and offers excellent value for money by Camps Bay standards.

We had a lovely bright, comfortable room, with a balcony and a wonderful view,perfect for watching the famous Camps Bay sunsets.

What really sets this place apart is the wonderful personal service and the really relaxed atmosphere. The emphasis here is on ensuring you enjoy your stay,and nothing is too much trouble.

Top class,highly recommended

Great place to stay. Well above your usual B&B. The rooms are lovely, everythings well thought out. The staff can't do enough to help you with advise and maps and booking hire cars, excursions and cabs etc.

Without a doubt we'll be using this place again when we next go to Cape Town.

Thanks again to Tamara & Yvonne :)

stayed for 6 nights - lovely and clean, and great breakfasts. Good sitting area with internet (and wi-fi in rooms), and a nice sitting out area at the side. Good security. The room was equipped with a ceiling fan, which with open windows (barred) front and back kept us cool at night.
many thanks to all the staff who were wonderful and helpful. good parking area at the front, and a view over the sea.

This centrally located, elegant guesthouse offers a hide standard of accommodation and comfort.
Management and staff are exceptionally friendly, helpful and efficient. Rooms are tastefully furnished with high-quality linens and careful thought in respect of occupant comfort. The addition of air conditioning would create a five-star environment. Breakfasts are superb and the entire experience invites a revisit.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have a view but the ground-floor rooms facing on to the pool are nevertheless private...

The guesthouse is located within walking distance to camps bay beach front and shops. It's very clean and the staff are helpful. We had a sea facing room, which got extremely hot during the day as it is in direct sunlight for the better part of the day, aircon would be really great. The room was clean and the decor is really beachy feeling. Breakfast is really good and the chairs on the balcony are a really nice touch.

Room Tip: Choose the non sea-view facing rooms which are not in direct sunlight.

We only stayed 1 night here but it suited our needs perfectly. It was within easy walking distance of the beach and all restaurants in Camps Bay. Our room ( Sea View room) had wonderful views over the sea and the sunset was magical. Highly reccommended.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view. Perfect for a sundowner.
