Hout Bay is a little out there, but not an issue at all if you are driving.
Rooms are cozy and generous with a large bed, and the bathrooms are grand, complete with a free-standing bathtub. I had the Aloe room, which opens into the garden and the mountain ranges. Only problem was electrical outlets are a bit scant, so you may have to unplug the tv! Breakfasts in the lofty breakfast room are scrumptious with a very nice selection. The photographs on walls are very nicely done, and most are available for sale as well.
An additional benefit of Hout Bay is that it is near Imizamo Yethu township, where you can get a 3 hour tour with local guide Afrika Monik. Imizamo Yethu may not be the grittiest township in Cape Town, but definitely more real than other townships like Soweto. The Constantia vineyards are also around the corner.
