Coming back after 10 years for 8 days has been a pleasure! Rooms are modernized, Breakfast variety has improved. The Breakfastroom has full glas windows now and a modern style. Staff is well trained and very helpfull. Services come with a smile and make one feel the SA hospitality.

There was a mix up with our reservation with a third party but Ocean View House ensured that we were taken care of. Our room large, modern, and very comfortable. The views are stunning and the reception service from all the staff was commendable. Thank you for a great stay.

We can highly recommend ocean view house. Stayed here for three nights, excellent location to discover Cape Town from. Near to beaches and plenty of nice restaurants. Property looks lovely, very well kept. Helpful staff, excellent breakfast. We can recommend room 8 and 9 for families; connecting doors and very large space.
