We walked in and were amazed, it took a while to shut our mouths! Domonique, Jane and Portia were so helpful and went far beyond to assist us. The room and views were fantastic. We sat and sipped wine on the balcony and watched the sun go down and one night we had a bit of rain and it was... More

This was the ideal place to have our long awaited second honeymoon! We obviously had the Honeymoon Suite, which was so large and had a magnificent balcony to lounge and soak in the beautiful views of the sea and the mountains. The bed was large and comfy and the bathroom very big and spacious. Dominique, Janet and Portia were all... More

Balfour Place was our first stop on our Honeymoon and it was the best. The location is perfect because it's quiet and beautiful with fantastic views and within two minutes you can be in the hustle and bustle which we loved. The room was very neat and well equipped with everything we needed, the staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed here there last few days in the beautiful Camps Bay Area. The house and rooms are all excellent and very clean and staff are very friendly and helpful in arranging trips / taxi etc. Just a 2 minute walk to the beach to watch amazing sunsets. would definitely recommend this place

There was a badly chipped glass jug that was used daily for fruit juice. Also, the one lady that served us breakfast on the second day, Wednesday 25th May, was really not helpful and was more interested in reading her cell phone than serving us breakfast.

This is an excellent location to stay if you wanto visit Cape town and the surrounding. It's calm, but in two minutes you will find the beach, shops and restaurants of Camps Bay. In the house you have to climb some stairs, but this offers you a beautiful view to Camps Bay and Lions Head. The service is excellent and... More

The place itself is great, near the beach and the pick and pay if you want to buy food. We booked the honeymoon suite and it was great!, hottub and everything, nice view as well. It has too many stairs, in case you have some leg problem think about it and the breakfast it's not as complete and varied as... More

Balfour Place is a good "value for money" accomodation in Camps Bay with a friendly staff and a favourable and rather relaxed location. It offers enough possibilities to explore Cape town by car or by bus. Parking space is public and more or less limited by other inhabitants. Due to the lack of an elevator i.c.w. quite some stairs, not... More

What a gem this amazing accommodation is, the kind and professional caretakers and staff members make you feel right at home and are always willing to assist. It's location is perfect as you are within walking distance from the viby street's of camps bay and its welcoming beaches, but yet in a quiet private residential area which seems far from... More

Stayed at balfour place the morning of my wedding day and two days thereafter. The staff were kind enough to let me have my photographer, make-up artist and bridesmaids there to help me prep for the day. The room we had was spacious with beautiful lighting and a stunning view. Everything in the house was extremely clean and tidy.. I'd... More
