Check-in / room: We've booked 7 nights in the sweet ocean view guesthouse. When we arrived they checked us in another house (selborne road, lower level). We were confused as we've booked the house in barkly road but we didn't complained as the apartment was nice. During the night we've recognized that it is impossible to have a nice and... More

Staff were very friendly. Room was very comfortable and we loved the large bathroom. What a treat not to have to squeeze into the bathroom area. Breakfasts were great. I will use that Bed and Breakfast again.

The sweetest guesthouses are some of the finest places to stay if you're in Cape Town. They're not expensive, offer great services, and the very friendly staff is helping you with whatever problem you have: if it's organizing a township tour, or game drive thingy in a reserve near CPT. The breakfast is really good compared to what we got... More

A beautiful setting and comfortable guesthouse, loved the upstairs lounge and patio with great views! The service needs upgrading. We asked for the extra DSTV and WiFi in both rooms on Friday and had to remind the staff on saturday to do it. The staff is very noisy in the kitchen and we had to ask them to be quiet... More

Sweetest guest house ocean view is a great choice. It is well located, close to the water and restaurants. The breakfasts are great and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are good size with nice bathrooms. There is a great lounge and deck area on the second floor for gatherings and relaxation.

Simply said, we regretted having booked another guesthouse for our second three nights in Sea Point after our roundtrip! It's not luxury, it's taste in food and furniture, with a self service bar and german Bierschinken, it's friendly staff and it's quiet. We enjoyed!
