We stayed in the honeymoon suite here for one night and we regret not having spent more time here! The views are fantastic from the top floor, the pool side is a nice relaxing spot and the breakfast was very tasty. It does not have a lift, so be prepared for lots of steps to the top of the building....

Enjoyed a two night stay. The room was spacious and clean with great views. The swimming pool area was good thought he pool was chilly. There wasn't a massive choice for breakfast but what there was was good and the individually cooked breakfast excellent. Very convenient for the seafront - restaurant sops etc.

We spent one night here at the end of our trip but I could happily have stayed longer. Our room was on the small side but perfectly comfortable and well appointed. Only a couple of minutes down to the restaurants and beach area. The breakfast and lounge areas are spacious and comfortable with a decent size pool and deck area...

Good location near restaurants ,beach and shops. Walking distance. Also affordable to take taxi to Cape Town. We could also take the city hopper bus just down the street Tips: The Clifton 4 beach and restaurant Bungalow was a very nice experience !

We had a nice room with a large balcony and views of the beach and the mountains. The breakfasts were good. Portia, David and Dominique were really friendly and helpful. Unfortunately,we hadn't been aware of the set up for parking- the property is at the end of steep hill , in a cul de sac. We found manoeuvring the hire...

We had originally booked to stay in Sea Point but the hotel we chose some seven months earlier made life so difficult when it came to making payment prior to travel. We booked into the Balfour at short notice and the booking process could not have been made easier by the helpful and friendly staff. We asked the hotel to...

Spent 3 nights in your beautiful Guesthouse with my husband. All the staff were wonderful. Our room was so clean and spacious. Fabulous view from the balcony. It was very close to sea front and restaurants. We would highly recommend it.
