  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Beautiful setting, excellent staff and venue.

The guest house is located about 5 minutes walk from the main strip, with coffee shops, bars and restaurants of Camps Bay/Bakoven within 5-10 mins walk. The setting is stunning with The Apostles just behind the guest house and the sea view in front. The owners and the staff are all friendly and welcoming, with a well stocked "honesty bar", and a buffet breakfast with freshly cooked choices of additional menu items. Camps Bay itself has possibly the best fish restaurant I've ever been to (The Codfather) and a good mix of bars and restaurants, plus a small shopping mall. I stayed in the centre of Cape Town for most of my stay in the area, but enjoyed the couple of days in Camps Bay immensely, and the guest house was an integral part of that.

Great view from our room and shower!!! Private balcony with bean bag loungers was great. Good location - very easy to walk to restaurants and beach. Delicious cooked breakfast available. Honesty bar was nice although it had run out of white wine when I wanted a glass!!! Staff very amenable although not sure how knowledgeable they were about local information/tips and hints on what to do or where to go/weather forecast etc Really enjoyed our stay here though - lovely contemporary and comfortable accommodation with a small but perfectly adequate pool for cooling off in. Also secure parking was available after prior arrangement.

  • Liked: Room comfort

Could be a stunning place to stay, but it is not super clean, art work is poor, feeling is of a semi-abandoned gorgeous contemporary home that could, with little effort, be made to be utterly stunning and superior with better on-site management and focus on details. Owner are absentee and it shows.

Honeymoon in Cape Town

My wife and I stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our honeymoon in Cape Town. This hotel was amazing. The room in absolutely incredible. The balcony in enormous with a nice hot tub on it and the view is stunning. The service here is first class. We had a late flight in and they had no problem accommodating a late check in for us. We loved the honor bar and the breakfast was excellent. Next time we are in Cape Town we will be staying here again in the same room.

Stayed 5 nights in Jul 2019
