Score from 116 reviews Excellent
Friendly, smiling staff. Beautiful views of both Table Mountain and the beach. Ideally located a few minutes walk from the beach and restaurants. Only 15mins taxi ride to the centre of Cape Town.
The staff, helped carry cases up over 50 steps to bedroom, very polite The pool area and views were lovely, you can watch the sunset. Nice cooked breakfast and close to shops and restaurants.
No mention of steps on website when booked, we were in bedroom 1 right next too the office, the room was small as was the bathroom. Room 1 has a tiny balcony (other rooms have much larger ones) plus ours had a massive cactus plant on it! Area outside by the car parking was frequented by drunks and smelt of urine.
The location the view the friendliness and how helpful were the managers and the staff espicaly Portia thank you very much
the wifi was very slow and they should have more tv channels
Enjoyed the Sea view and the closeness to Camps bay restaurants and beaches. The pool was refreshing.
The breakfast was very disappointing. It was the worst we had on our entire 4 week trip in the Western Cape. The bed was not level and there were bed bugs. The large cactus plant on the small balcony was most annoying.
Off the main road so traffic noise was minimal, great views of Lions head and beach
Lots of steps! We were on the top floor so 4 flights of stairs to climb.
Great Location after busy days in Capetown, great restaurants nearby peaceful,quiet. Good breakfast
Steps! But ok thanks to David.
Nice,modern and well furnished house. Good position,very nice view,awesome breakfast with very friendly staff. 3 minutes away from the beach(and Citysightseeing Stop)
Pool Large room Balcony Location very close to town Room safe
-decoration -size of room and bed -ocean view -staff
Large room, perfect Balcony , well furnished(our room had the best view overlooking whole Camps Bay) with the evening sun. Nice sitting area in room Restaurants on walking distance. Close to all the highlights.
Lot of stairs! Bed room couldn't be totally darkened because of glass separating it from the night hall. shower
Very close to town, spacious rooms and decks, friendly staff. Relaxed but luxurious atmosphere, with wonderful views.
We had honeymoon suite it was very nicely furnished and very spacious. Freshly made breakfast Short walk to the strip Quiet Free wifi
Climb up the stairs with luggage from car park level to top of building. But not much you can do about that if you want a view.
Restaurants are nearby in walking distance and a walk at the beach is always nice.
In contrast to other B&B places where we stayed, the atmoshpere is here more hotel-like than that of a B&B. Parking could be a problem as Balfour Place is at the end of a cul de sac. Another guest argued about whether the rooms are facing seaside (he expected a room with a straight view onto the sea = parallel to the beach): the rooms are sea-facing but more from a side view.
The staff are really helpful and add to the relaxed atmosphere. There are numerous restaurants just a few minutes walk away and the location makes it easy to get to the table mountain cable car or into Cape Town on the coast road. It is right next door to a Primi hotel, where you would expect to pay quite a lot more if you booked via your travel company rather than via the internet.
Not a 'dislike' but there are quite a few steps up to the hotel and again inside as there is no lift. Having said that we had help with the bags on arrival and checking out.
we just stayed here for one night, very nice people, big room with nice view
The views, the decor, furnishings etc
A bit noisy, especially at weekends as close to three main roads, but quiet enough at night. There was very little choice for breakfast, with not a cereal in sight.
Absolutely amazing view! Delicious, made-to-order breakfast in the mornings from very friendly staff. Staff was accommodating. Walking distance from the promenade in Camps Bay, the hop on hop off bus, and the beach. Would definitely book again.
Wifi was in and out and connecting to different routers in the guesthouse. Sometimes the staff was hard to find when we had questions or needed help with something. There was no phone or fridge in the room.
The location and view. Room #5 is the biggest one. It is beautiful and spacious. The location is an easy and very short walk to the beach/restaurants/shops but feels removed and is quiet.
I didn't like that guests could smoke on the balconies so you had no control if you were next to a smoker.
Perfect location to go to the beach and the restaurants. Free parking
Location. Manager. View from Veranda.
I thought Breakfast was so-so. Shower was also a bit strange but acceptable.
* good breakfast, * Friendly staff * great location.
Reception very close to the room that we stayed in.
3 min walking to camps bay beach and good restaurants.
