51 On Camps Bay Guesthouse
Ranked #11 of 54 Camps Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We were greeted by Merryl, the owner. What a lovely, friendly lady. Dawn, the Manager also a lovely lady - very friendly and helpful. Both myself and husband felt very comfortable at 51 on Camps Bay. We had the room with ocean/mountain views and private balcony. Loved the huge shower. The location is brilliant, just a short stroll to the sea front. I agree with all the other reviews - breakfast was delicious - am particularly missing the fruit salad - lovely! Thank you both to Dawn and Merryl - we would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: We liked the Deluxe room - very private.

We stayed in 51 on camps bay from 23rd to 26th March 2013. This is a delightful spot up on the hill with great views to the ocean. Our room was very comfortable and airy and the breakfast was home cooked to order. The manager was friendly,efficient and helpful during our stay. I would heartily recommend this establishment for a quiet few days. DerekM

I would recommend this accommodation to all my friends and family . They have the nicest people working there. The cleanliness and customer service is a 10/10. It is a 5-10 minute walk down to the beach. If you are looking to stay in Camps Bay, this is the place to be. Great value , service, and location. Not to mention the fabulous breakfast every morning. Hot or cold or continental.

51 is a very comfortable three room guest house with great views over the beach at Bakeoven and Camps Bay. Our room also featured a view to the Lions Head.

The room had a large comfy bed, with good linen and a large bathroom with a huge walk-in shower and loads of fluffy towels. Bathrobes are provided and there is a turn-down service (with a chocolate :-), which we really appreciated. AirCon and WiFi are available in all rooms.

There is a small pool and deck area, overlooking the Bay, on the property. Only three loungers however. Breakfast, which is served overlooking the pool, was excellent.

Dawn, who manages the property, could not have been more helpful throughout our stay, and we were made very comfortable at 51. We will definitely be back.

We spent two wonderful nights at this guest house and it was magical. The warmth of Dawn and Merryl. The extraordinary attention to detail. The exquisite breakfast. All sum up to a really wonderful experience. We want to come back!

We stayed here in December and had the room with wrap around balcony. The sunsets were gorgeous and we were very comfortable. What made this trip so special though was Dawn who was so warm, friendly and very informative. It was due to her that we bought a lovely engagement ring in Camps Bay and experienced some of the best restaurants around. Thank you Dawn for giving us a wonderful experience in Cape Town and the lovely champagne, strawberries and chocolates on our bed to celebrate our engagement.

We spent 4 blissful nights at this guest house. It is ideally located on the sea front at Camps Bay with stunning views of the ocean. It is a short walk to the beach and centre of Camps Bay but far enough away so as to be removed from any potential noise. The guesthouse itself is exquisite. We had a large bright room that had both a shower and bath and also a dressing area with plenty of storage space. The breakfast was delectable and included both a cold buffet with fresh fruit, yogurt and cheese and also a cooked breakfast. Our hosts went above and beyond to make our stay just perfect and that is what it was-perfect. We were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived and nothing was too much trouble for them. We cannot wait to return to this amazing place.

Room Tip: We had the "Deluxe Suite" which had its own private balconey
