“Friendly staff, great views”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Staff was very friendly and helpful will all my requests. Very comfortable room with view of the sea from the lounge area (but not from the bed). Nice pool (for relaxing, too small for swimming laps). Generally a very good breakfast, but the omlette was too salty. The location is a bit far from the restaurants in Camps Bay (15 minutes by foot) but the views are stupendous.

We stayed at Ocean View for 2 nights in one of the suites - it was very spacious and beautifully done with great views of the ocean. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ocean View as a great place to stay and we felt very good value too.

This is very delayed however stayed here for 4 nights with my partner. Everything was perfect. Views were stunning next to 12 apostles and looking out to sea. We often opened a bottle if wine on the patio in the evening after a long day of sightseeing and just chilled with spectacular views.
Breakfast was fabulous and wonderfully fresh food. Rooms were very spacious and airy. Lovely decor.
Thank you all for such a great start to our trip. We will definitely be back.

A wonderful retreat - peaceful and beautiful place to return to at the end of a busy day touring the area or visiting in the city. Stunning view of the sun setting over the sea from our room - wish I was still there

Kind staff, very nice surroundings, exceptional breakfast!
The only little negative experience was the difference in room decoration and equipment. Some bathrooms are much smaller than the new Garden Suites but price is the same
