“pure peace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

I spent 10 nights at this delightful small family run hotel. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the service was first class. I had a panoramic suite; and it had views right out over the ocean and also the magnificent hotel gardens. My room was very spacious and extremely comfortable....and peaceful.The breakfasts were better fantastic; a huge range of options. The location underneath Table Mountain and the 12 apostles was spectacular. It was easy by car to reach many wonderful places for day excursions. Local Camps bay restaurants were very good and varied.

Beautiful location, friendly top-notch staff. Stayed a couple days in a Panorama Suite in Oct 2013 as part of my honeymoon. Perfect spot for enjoying sunsets and Camps Bay while still generally convenient to other attractions in town.

We stayed in the ocean view house for two nights directly after our arrival from the airport. Thanks to the best equipped appartment and the great breakfast as well as the very service focussed personnel we decided to shorten our Garden Route trip and to stay for further two nights before leaving SA.

We stayed here for a few nights either side of a motorcycle tour, what a great location! The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms excellent - we stayed in two types of room and both were fine - the dual aspect garden room was particularly good. Great base for Cape Town and climbing Table Mountain.

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.
