We stayed in Studio B - Lisa for 6 nights. It was poorly equipped with home-made furniture and a maze of electrical wires - see photo. Anyone who gives a 5-point rating (and there are many), lives on another planet. The studio was scruffy rather than dirty. The shower room had tiles overpainted in brown and white paint! The garden furniture seems to have been cobbled together with driftwood. The barbecue facilities were terrible - in the land of the braii! - they could not be made to function properly. Bearing in mind the appallingly difficult and dangerous steps to our studio, with no handrail, the obligatory signed waiver against any claims whatsoever should be considered very carefully. Whilst some people seemed entirely pleased with this mediocrity, I have never seen a visitors' book with so many adverse comments, none of which seem to have been acted upon. Clearly the proprietors do not care to address these issues. On the plus side the pool is great, the view to the sea is magic as is the garden itself. The feeling of a crazy, jungly garden is quite fun.
- 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. We try to give a sense of maximum privacy by breaking the garden and pool areas into different parts and places for people. We even have a sleeper day bed over the river.
