This is absolutely our favourite place in South Africa. We stayed in february 2011 and then again in december 2011. The first time we stayed in the poolside-room. Room was cosy and comfortable, the second travel we got to stay in the loft suite. The loftsuite offered more privacy and had a large balcony with a view of the most...

We had nice stay at Amblewood. We were in the area for a wedding and Trevor was very helpful with directions and suggestions on what to do in the surrounding areas. Our room was rather public as everyone has to pass right by our door and window to get to their room or to breakfast or to their cars ext,...

I was fortunate enough to stay at Amblewood for 10 days and had the most enjoyable time at what is a wonderful Guest House run by Trevor and June. I was so sorry when it came time to leave as we had so enjoyed our stay. From the comfortable rooms with beautiful views over the Hout Bay and the mountains...

From the time you arrive and experience Trevor and June's warm and open hearted welcome until you sadly leave at the end of your stay you will feel that you are at home, part of the family, and they have been waiting for you to finally visit. Amblewood is splendidly situated with an eye for the magnificent views Hout Bay...

Certainly the perfect place to stay near Cape Town. Very conveniently located, very quiete and fantastic views. Trevor and June are perfects hosts, very friendly and welcoming.

Trev & June are hosts that make a difference- they are genuine and considerate and they run a B&B that makes you feel like you're at the top of the world- both in location and comfort! The location is a quite a way out of Cape Town so your own transport is recommended, but we wanted to be near Chapman's...

Trevor and June were the perfect hosts for our first trip to South Africa. We felt right at home in this beautiful place as soon as we walked through the front door. Amblewood's location is excellent. Hout Bay is a lovely village and the drive to and from the Bay is wonderful. Trevor's breakfasts are amazing - we certainly didn't...
