“Outstanding service”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Spent 4 nights here and would highly recommend it! Amazing hospitality and service including excellent recommendations for local restaurants (Codfather and Hussars!). Huge thank you to Dawn who made us feel so welcome and was always on hand to answer all our questions and recommend the best spots. We loved the luxury sea view room - it has an incredible bathroom, where you can (privately) shower looking out across the bay/ocean!

I have stayed in 51 Camps Bay three times and it has been consistently excellent. Highlights:

- Great location, 5 mins walk from the main street
- Lovely property, rooms are very stylish and comfortable with great views of the sea
- Merryl and Dawn do everything they can to make your stay as nice as possible. Whether it is early breakfasts, advice on local places, arranging ironing, or just bringing an impromptu cold beer - nothing is too much trouble and they take a genuine pride in looking after their guests.

I would not hesitate to recommend 51 Camps Bay.

We finished off our 3 week South African trip in Cape Town and stayed at 51 for the last few nights. Agree with all the other comments, the location is great, and the service really was good. Meryll (the owner) and Dawn (the manager/housekeeper) went beyond the call of duty to be helpful, and on our last day when we overslept (!) and nearly missed our pick-up, they pulled out all the stops to help us out. Really lovely and kind people, great views, and service - you'll not be disappointed.

I recently stayed at 51 on Camps Bay with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. It is a boutique B&B with fantastic rooms, amazing views of the sea and mountains, great breakfasts and lovely hosts. Merryl was incredibly helpful in providing restaurant recommendations (would def try The Codfather and Hussars) and all round tips. Highly recommend.

We stayed at this gorgeous guest house at the end of summer and a long trip around south africa. What a wonderful end to a truly amazing trip. The room was stunning - Deluxe suite is an understatement!! The views were memorable from the private balcony wrapping around the room. Special mention of the staff who made tired travellers feel 'at home' and totally relaxed. A highly recommended home away from home! I will definitely return to 51!

5-stars to Meryl & Steve for this B&B. When we arrived from Jo-burg and there was lavender sprinkled all over our room, which made the whole rooms smell AMAZING. We had the luxury sea-view room which had a great view of Camps Bay from the room. There was a balcony that we were able to enjoy, while sipping a glass of pinotage in the evenings. The breakfast was made-to-order every morning, which was a great way to start the day. The owner of the B&B was such a gracious host and made sure that our stay was perfect from start to finish.

The location of the B&B is great for accessing the restaurants on the water and the owner of the B&B gave great recommendations. The bed was so comfortable so we slept wonderfully every night. All-in-all a wonderful experience - if you go to Camps Bay, you must stay at 51 Camps Bay.

My husband and I, being busy parents, left planning our 7th Wedding Anniversary to the very last minute. I made an enquiry for accommodation via e-mail with 51 On Camps Bay and received a prompt response. Booking and paying was hassle free and quick. We received great directions and arrived with time to book in and enjoy complimentary champagne on the deck to watch the sun set. The rooms are absolutely beautiful. The bathrooms are gorgeous - we especially enjoyed the double shower in our room - it made getting ready for our night out so much easier. Meryl, the owner, made us feel right at home and gave us alot of info on the surrounding restaurants and sights. We thoroughly enjoyed our home cooked breakfast the next morning from the dininng area looking on to the beach. All round a wonderful experience - thank you to Meryl for making us feel at home while away from home.
