We were warmly welcomed by the hosts and shown to our suite with two balconies, a view of the beautiful garden and the ocean, as well as Lions Head. The interiour is lovingly decorated African style and very clean. There are all the usual amenities, e.g. mini bar, TV, DVD player and safe, but also a luxury bathroom with a large tub (that unfortunately can't be used due to water saving regulations). For all guests there is a cosy communal living room with lots of books. Breakfast is a fusion of German (warm rolls, bread, cold meats and homemade jams) and South African (eggs to order). The host are tremendously friendly and helpful - this is a home away from home!

To start our South African holiday we treated ourselves to a wonderful stay at the Ambiente guesthouse in Camps Bay. Beautiful location close to Table Mountain and Lions Head, beautiful rooms with an ocean-view and a lovely couple caring about you with the help of Jackie - the little Jack-Russell. All-you-need breakfast with Home-made jams that will prepare you for your daytours.

This guest house is run by a super friendly German couple who have lived there for 15 years. They are helped by great staff, including Jacky the dog and the lovely German intern Maxi ! It was a very relaxing place in a beautiful location and we really enjoyed staying there and speaking to the hosts – it felt like a home from home. The rooms are spacious and beautiful with private balcony and have everything one could want (including beach bag and towels and honesty bar). The communal areas were also really nice with plenty of things to read and available drinks. The only minor comments I would make is there is no Tea/Coffee making facilities in the room (maybe that is an SA/UK ‘thing’ but not German, as it was usual not to have in SA) and is was extremely hot when we were there and the rooms are not air conditioned. To emphasise, these were minor points for us and we had an amazing time and were made to feel very welcome and also a very generous welcome drink with the hosts – we would love to stay there again sometime soon and finally best of luck to Maxi for her future – she will do very well – thank you Peter and Marion!

After a delayed flight, horrific queues at Cape Town passport control and then the First Car hire desk we were relieved to arrive at Ambiente house. The welcome could not have been warmer from Jens who sensed our stress state and immediately offered us a welcome drink. Sitting in their secluded garden with a glass of Chardonnay in our hands we soon relaxed. Then Jens showed us a room and what a room. Enormous with a huge patio door overlooking Camps Bay. We also had our own private terrace overlooking the bay one way and table mountain the other. The bathroom too was big with a lovely sunken bath and shower. The room had everything a discerning guest could need (except maybe a shower cap!!!!). Breakfast the next morning was a work of art. The table looked beautiful. Jens was the perfect host offering a cooked breakfast if required. Also included was lovely fresh fruit salad, cold meats and cheeses and a variety of jams made by the owner Peter. Delicious and set us up for the day - we seriously didn't need any lunch. If you are lucky enough to get a room here you will be forever grateful.
