“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I stayed at 3 on Camps Bay the last week in January, 2013 and absolutely fell in love with the place and the people. Very cozy and homey. George and Maria were wonderful and the staff was friendly and nice. Breakfast was awesome! We never missed it! I can't say enough about Camps Bay. Location is perfect and allows easy access to all the sites. Maria was particularly helpful in getting us set up with day trips to the vineyards, safari and Cape Point. Cape Town is an amazingly beautiful place and 3 on Camps Bay was perfect for us. This was my first trip to South Africa and we could not have chosen a better place. I have travelled extensively around the world and Cape Town and 3 on Camps Bay are at the top of my list. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 9. Spectaculr view.

We spent a few days in February 2013, and had a wonderful stay. The location is exceptional in Camp's Bay, with stunning views. Lovely breakfast and area. Our hosts were friendly and assisted us in recommendations for parking for the concert we were attending.

Room Tip: The view is so stunning so pay a bit extra and book a sea view room.

We had been let down by another B&B when travelling with friends and needed a place to stay. Called at reception and were met by Maria, one of the owners. She could not have been more helpful and gave us a lovely room with sea views. The terrace has uninterrupted views of the ocean and there is also a nice outdoor sofa area as well as a small pool.
The room was big with bath and shower and sliding doors onto the communal terrace. Other guests use the terrace but we had a small private area if needed. The location is great just off Camps Drive ans close enough to walk to the main restaurant areas. Free wifi and use of a PC and the breakfast was varied and nice served by friendly staff.
Recommended!

Room Tip: We had a sea facing luxury room but there are more economical rooms without the sea view.

i stayed at 3 on camps bay together with my friend for one week in jan. 2013.
the owner and the staff were very helpful and friendly. i loved the cozy feel of the hotel and truly felt at home during my stay there.
the breakfast buffet was fresh and they would even serve a different breakfast dish every morning. the view from the breakfast room and the pool area overlooking the ocean is stunning.
the negative aspect about the guest house was that our room was a bit small for two people. also, the patio doors would slam against the frame during heavy winds. we had to buy ear plugs to get a good night sleep.

I loved spending my late afternoons at the pool and walking down the hill into camps bay in the evenings.
downtown camps bay is only a 7 min. walk away from the hotel and offers great restaurants and bars. no clubbing though!
the sandy beaches are great. the vendors however can ruin your peace! find your own little secluded beach along the streets towards cape town and you will be fine!

we would definitely highly recommend this guest house!

In November 2012, my family and I visited South Africa for the first time and stayed at this hotel for a week, besides being very well kept hygiene wise and all it was a very welcoming place to stay. since it was our first time in South Africa we had a lot of questions and felt we were in good hands with George and Maria who did everything in their power to help us out and end some. This hotel is set up in the perfect surroundings, close to the beaches and all the life of the bars and restaurants, yet not to close that its you hear all the hustle and bustle. they offer a delicious breakfast and lovely views from all over the hotel from the lush ocean views to the breath taking table mountain views. the four of us would definitely HIGHLY recommend this hotel and plan to go back ourselves in the near future. be sure to speak to George and Maria as we found their advice very helpful from restaurant suggestions to further help for tackling the garden route!

Room Tip: since it was a family trip we opted for the cottage which was highly recommendable!

We had good days i Camps Bay and were glad we had choosen 3 On Camps Bay as our base for tours in the region. Owner and staff were allways helpfull and smiling. Since our stay was at a time of rather cold see, it would have been nice with a pool of a size invitng to swim, not only to dip into for beeing cooled.
