The house has 3 apartments A,B and C. We stayed at apartment C. The first night we could also use the dek from apartment A. Mark is a friendly guy. The pictures on the internet look fantastic but these are from a long time a go. Lets start with safety. To get in apartment C you have to open 4 locks on 3 different doors which means in case of a fire you have to the same to get out. The steps down to the garden and pool were dangerous espesially if you have kids or a suitecase or both with you. To get to apartment B you have to take these steps and you have go trough the sittingarea of apartment C. We saw a family with to small children struggling to get down and up. Lets go to health. The apartments A and C were increadible dirty. The bathrooms were full with mold. In apartment C you enter the bathroom through the kitchen. You can not close the door from the bathroom completely.Bathroomsize was 2 meter by 0.7 meter. Try to shower in a 0.7 by 0.7 shower. The floors in the apartments were concrete an the last time someone cleaned these was probably in the last century. The kitchen in apartment C was selfmade as lots of furniture in this place, probably also in the last century. The place however has potential but neads renovating. The last day Mark was asking if we liked the place and we answered, NO. He said that he bought a steamclaener but that it was broke. This place is a shame for Camps Bay. He is better off turning it in to a cheap backpackers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Campsbayglen is a little gem on the edge of a nature reserve "Glen". A beautiful rustic, down to earth natural setting with a unique river & wild waterfalls flowing through the garden that has a leafy green forest feel at the river which is a great place to cool down after the heat and sun of the pool area. We also have a rustic hammock lounge at the giant pool to laze around in and relax and with sun beds around the pool. There is an easy walk to the beach and to do Table mountain hikes. An exquisite and unique feel of nature and beauty is Campsbayglen. we are a rustic earthy place with no Stars.
