Score from 15 reviews Wonderful
Most things!! The decor; huge comfy bed with good quality sheets + duvet; view; that everything was so well organized; close to shops/entertainment; although a guest house it has a hotel 'feel'; super garden; daily choccie; privacy; spacious; honesty bar on verandah; friendly helpful host; daily servicing; wifi; everything we needed was there!
A full length mirror would be nice; Colour of cupboard isn't right; bathroom door - a proper door/one which closes completely rather than the sliding one
Excellent guest house!!!!!!!!
Very welcoming. Definitely will return!
Mark was a really great host.
good service communication tranquility it met my expectations
Everything! Our stay was most enjoyable and just perfect. Location was excellent and the service was world class.
The magnificent view, cleanliness and no interference with privacy. An amazing accomodation experience and will definitely spread word of mouth about this experience
The room was spotless, as was the whole facility. Although my stay was short, it was very comfortable.
The noise from the fridge in the room but it was only a minor irritation!
Very helpful and accommodating staff. Let us leave our luggage after checkout to pick up later - thanks! Also, no charge for a glass we broke - small amount but it made an impression. Gardens and other facilities very well maintained! The 'honesty bar' was a nice touch - even though we didn't use it, it was heartening to see you trust your guests. We will definitely recommend your establishment.
a Braai area / communal kitchen would have been convenient (for those times you don't want to eat out every meal of the day and you don't feel like a sandwich). Wi-Fi was a bit sporadic at times but nothing major. These are really minor issues and not really of concern.
I was 100% satisfied!!! thank you for a great stay!!! Philip, Caledon
The extra mile the owner walked in order to accommodate my physical restriction The view, the space, the luxury and the friendliness of the owner and staff. The safety environment with secure parking Good quality coffee and milk and water for free - not only two sachets of coffee like in most places. I loved that. The wide selection of drinks and snacks, at reasonable prices, in the honesty bar. If ever i have to stay somewhere in that area in the Cape, Bayview will be my first choice.
Booking was handled very efficiently. Friendliness and helpfulness of management.
Liquid soap dispenser was empty and had not been refilled. Small point: fridge compressor motor switching on is a bit noisy.
Proximity to Virgin Active gym and the shops. A good view from the upper terrace. Comfortable bed and excellent TV. Friendly, efficient management and staff. Good parking arrangements. Convenient for Cape Town.
I would have preferred an upper room, although I have no issues with the room itself. Also, during my stay the soap dispenser ran out of soap and this was not noticed by the chambermaid. Really, these are minor points. Overall, the Bay View is an excellent value for money hotel.
Friendly helpful owner. Very clean, comfortable and well stocked with all the bits and bobs you might need. Nice thoughtful touches. Very well stocked honesty bar on the terrace. Great views. Good mall with shops and restaurants a short drive or 15 min walk away.
If staying longer you might want a bigger pool but fine for a short stay.
Big room; lovely view and nice bathroom. It matched the description which places don't always do. The small light cooking area was very useful especially as there was no breakfast. Very good value for a night's stop.
Nothing really. It was good having the room at the end of the balcony and I wouldn't really have liked one of the others.
I was particularly impressed with the fact that everything you might possibly require is available in the unit eg. hairdryer, cutlery, scissors (I coincidently needed a pair), mini bar, snacks, complimentary mineral water, etc.
Efficient and warm staff.
The room is very well equipped Has a small pool A/C units are quieter than in other places Good selection of TV channels Secure parking Honesty bar has many good drinks
Could hear the traffic a little bit
It was clean and apart from the other rooms not like in a hotel - crowded. Warm water, soap, shampoo, blowdryer, microwave fridge ect. Stuning view and awsome hosts. TV channels are "clear" and there was no "snow".
Water took a while to warm up.
Beautiful view on a peaceful setting.ownervery welcoming and helpful
Everything else was very nice!
I would have loved a 2pt plug in the room for charging of cell phone etc
Our host Mark couldn't have been more helpful and obliging. An excellent base to see the sights of the area.
This is a First Class establishment offering guests everything possible and more. The Bay View is centrally located to various entertainment and shopping facilities. The Hosts, Mark and Eugene are very friendly and welcoming and will go out of their way to assist you. Lovely touch is the goodnight chocolate not offered anywhere else anymore. Congratulations, keep it up. I will be back.
Absolutely nothing. My stay was perfect, well done!
Good location for a few nights if you have to do in that region. Ideal for stop-over to CPT airport. Very nice view over false bay day and night. Perfect parking. Very clean and friendly. Bar in the upper flour with great stuff and view!
