A most enjoyable few days was had at 51 Camps Bay. Merryl is a wonderful host and willingly assisted us with any queries we had with suggestions, making bookings and the like. The staff too were lovelyl The location is very pretty and only a 5 minute walk to the beachfront and restaurants. A gorgeous spot.

We stayed here for 3 nights and wish we had stayed longer. The owner is fantastic and made us feel very welcome. The location is perfect and the rooms were very nice as was the pool area. We will 100% be going back next year.

We visited Capetown in April 2016 for our honeymoon and chose to stay at 51 on Camps Bay for 4 nights. It was the best decision we made. The location is picture perfect. It is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach front and the restaurants. It was such a pleasure being hosted by Merryl. She was extremely... More

There was a good choice of delicious fare for breakfast. Merryl, the very cheerful owner could not have been more helpful, booking restaurants and a trip to Robben Island for... More

In addition, both Merryl and Corrie (the on... More
