We only spent one night but thought it was a delightful guest house. Our rooms were lovely it was just a pity that we had asked for two twin bedded rooms and one was a double and as there were no other rooms available one of our party had to sleep on the sofa, but this was not too much of a problem. Breakfast was very good and presented very well.
I would not hesitate to recommend this guest house as everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Lovely guest house, very clean and very friendly. Do think the pool area needs an upgrade and the garden needs a good clean up. It is very calm atmosphere but an upgrade would make it that much better. The rooms were very adequate, but lighting outside could be improved, one has to be very careful late at night walking to one's room.

Room Tip: 4 rooms are next to each other, and 2 around the other side, so quite honestly it would make no difference.

Nice hotel with a charming classic cape dutch style main house (with a thatched roof and everything) and a lovely garden. It's a nice 15 min walk to town, which happens to be along a gorgeous cliff with stunning views, so we didn't mind the distance at all. The rooms are a little old/musty feeling, and there was a little bit of a weird vibe. I don't know how to explain it, but the staff seem a bit on edge and breakfast was a bit tense feeling-- we weren't as relaxed as we could have been.

We stayed one night at House on Westcliff on a weekend trip to the fantastic Hemel en Aarde Valley wineries. The bedroom was spacious, clean, well decorated and quiet, facing out onto the garden with pool. From just outside the B&B there are magnificent views of the ocean and surrounding mountains. The centre of town, new harbour and cliff-side walk are only a short distance away. The breakfast served in a lovely lounge was very nice: fresh fruit, juice, tea/coffee, fresh breads and cheese, cereals, jams and cooked eggs/tomato/mushrooms. Plenty of safe gated parking available.

I'll definitely recommend and return

Our first choice was Harbour Vue Guest House, because we stayed here 2 years ago and had a wonderfull memory of Barry. But there wasen't vacancy and Barry send us up the street to the House on Westcliff.
The place is also very good, a woderfull garden with pool and relaxing areas, the lounge/breakfast room with an honesty bar (a thing that would never worked in Germany) very big and comfy
The room we got was a king size, good shape and decorated with a heart for africa.
Breakfast was very delicious, fruit salad in a half pineapple, cereals, yoghurt, all you need for a long day.
