“Excellent stay good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We spent a week here in late January a beautiful big room with our own private balcony. It was great to have the little mini kitchen in the room and everything was spotless. The en suite was a good size but unfortunately the wash hand basin took an absolute age to empty and this became very irritating after a while, so much so that we used the kitchen sink for teeth washing etc

However Hans and Annmarie were very nice hosts, most helpful in everyway, booking restaurants, giving tips where to go etc etc.

The breakfast was delicious and the views from the terrace were spectacular, also it was lovely to plunge into the pool on return from a day out

The nearest restaurant Hussars Grill a mere 2 minutes walk away serve the best steaks ever and it is not too far to drive downhill to the main area of Camps Bay to visit the other many good eateries.

All in all a lovely calm and well run B and B which I can certainly recommend

We spent 11 nights here as a base before and after our sons Wedding. The room,superb views,excellent location,good breakfasts all contributed to a very memorable stay. However the warmth and effort that Hans and Annmarie showed to us was often beyond general expectations including help which was outside the usual for a guesthouse. Certainly we got value for money and would wholeheartedly recommend!

We spent a week in a suite at this guest house and, even by the end of the stay, were overwhelmed by the views. We had two balconies, one overlooking Camps Bay and the ocean, the other facing table Mountain and Lions Head.
The suite was spacious and our hosts very helpful in suggesting sights to see and places to eat. The only fault we found was the plumbing. The shower was dated with very poor water flow and a couple of taps were loose. However, our suite also had a large bath and ample hot water.
Overall, a fine 4* guest house in an ideal location.

We were referred here by a friend who recommended we get Room #4 (The Albatross room) because of the extra balcony and it's more than just that - it's a full patio with chairs to look out on the ocean and the bay. We had the most incredible sunsets there with the affordable wine in the minifridge. The room was updated and looked even better than the photos online.

Breakfasts were great and prepared just to your liking. Hans and Annamarie helped us book a rental car and reservations for dinner as well. The service and care was impeccable.

You do need a rental car to get around if you want to avoid walking uphill everyday but since we had one the location was fantastic and it's right around the corner from two of the best restaurants in Camps Bay (Hussar Grill and the Codfather) and just uphill from the strip on Victoria road. We really couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Room Tip: Get #4 (even it it costs more) you'll be grateful for that patio overlooking the ocean!

A delightful venue for our first few days in SA! A very warm welcome from Annamarie and Hans to very comfortable accommodation in a perfect location . The views from the terrace are breath-taking! Annamarie is a tremendous source of information that allowed us to make the most of our stay in Cape Town. The guesthouse is situated about 15 minutes walk uphill from the main road but we discovered the red Hop on Hop off bus would stop at the end f the road if you spoke very nicely to the driver!

We had a great time staying here over New Years eve 2013, the weather was terrible but this didnt hinder our stay one bit.
The room was beautiful with lots of lovely little touches to make you feel welcome - like homemade rusks and a south africa keyring and some chocolates :)
Breakfast was lovely and the atmosphere was peaceful and luxurious.
We would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

This is a wonderful place to stay! Camp's Bay is an excellent location to stay in Cape Town and this guesthouse is up hill from Beach Road, the main street. That might seem to be a disadvantage but it's not. It is removed from the noise of the main street and you have a spectacular view from the deck of the guesthouse. Annamarie and Hans are wonderful hosts and could not have been more helpful when we asked for guidance in planning our activities. We'd move in if they let us!
