No one to welcome guests to breakfast. Tables not re set quickly enough. Thoughts -do I wait for someone ?-do I get my own tea and coffee? Most unusual.
nice location and nice and lighty rooms
lots of things have not worked properly: Towels in the bathroom were missing, took my private towel because they thought it is a hote towel, ants in the room, reception was not occupied (especially after 7pm) Never book a private Spa treatment, it is not professional, people are not reliable and not worth the money
Great first night accommodation clean airy and comfortable Short car trip to camps bay
Nothing was to much trouble and always a smile Very clean and comfortableJ

Staff are second to non
Leaving to come home
Excellent location sea views
The Guest House is superbly situated in Bakoven with stunning views across the ocean. The staff were helpful and friendly and the rooms were very well appointed
Given the price and the proximity to Cape town, the poor WiFi facility was an unexpected disappointment. Apparently their wifi system is so stretched that the guests' access is cut off when the hotel management need to use it! This caused considerable irritation not just to us but also to other guests. They need to invest in a much better system. Frankly, we had better wifi connection in guest houses in the Karoo!
The location is just fantastic, the view is amazing. Very nice and helpful staff who immediately offered me another suite which I couldn't accept since I loved the Garden Suite too much!
I occupied the Garden Suite which I loved, but the strong smell of mold in the room obliged me to leave the room open at all times.
I spent five nights at the end of November at the Ocean View House. The guesthouse is located in a good location in Bakoven - about a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute MyCiti bus ride to Camps Bay. The room price included a breakfast that included both cold items as well as a selection of hot items that you could have individually prepared to your tastes which was nice. The personnel at the guesthouse are all extremely warm and friendly and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable - I especially liked the nightly cards that came with the turn-down service that had information about the next days weather and wind forecasts
Wi-Fi in the room (#2) was poor but worked well in the dining room
The view. Shower offered on our last day at the reception for free, prior to our night flight back to Europe. Camps Bay is anyway worthwhile a stay! Friendly receptionists.
Breakfast space much too small, like a school cantina - substandard. Expensive. Insufficient privacy for the deck's rooms: everbody can see you in your room, unless you have the curtains drawn. The Wifi did not work at all - the excuse was: "due to heavy wind" - as if it were never windy at the Cape! (ridiculous). Parking a little crowded at times.
We just loved everything about this guesthouse - its location, its views, the gardens, the fantastic breakfasts, the really friendly helpful staff who couldn't do enough for us. We were even upgraded to a brand new suite as we were booked for 5 nights. Would definitely return.
Nothing - it was all brilliant!
Top service and friendly . bookings for restaurants , taxi's , recommandations for visits , secure environment , VIEWS ,garden &pool .
View of the Ocean, staff is very professional. security good
Honesty bar not very well stocked , ice machine didn't work, it was very hot !
Everything - a wonderful place to stay !
Everything was just great
We stayed 2 nights at the ocean view house and really loved it. The breakfast and the service were extraordinary. They took very good care of us, recommended us a fantastic restaurant and booked us a table. Even at the restaurant we got special treatment because we came from the Ocean View House. It was one of the highlights of our honeymoon!
Hard to find because the house numbers keep on repeating.
The view is great. Hotel is very close to Camps Bay beaches.
This location is a bit far from city centre.
Our room had an outstanding view of the ocean. Wifi was reliable, breakfasts were good, they would custom make omelettes, cook your bacon to your specification, good shower, spacious room.
Restaurants in area were too far to walk to.
What a great place to stay in cape town..the attention to detail is fantastic..chocs on the pillow..next days weather on little cards..the rooms are spotless..the breakfasts are unbelievable and the staff are fantastic..ten out of ten.
Nothing to dislike here
Just loved everything - breakfast was divine!
Excellent location, clean, comfortable rooms, spectacular views, good food, staff very friendly and efficient.
We stayed three times in the hotel It is in a wonderful position, you have the view of the ocean and of Table Mountains from any room, we slept in the panorama suite, the best one ever seen! thank you to the staff very nice professional helpful people.
Only stayed 1 night. Staff very friendly. Good cooked breakfast and pancakes. Room very comfortable. Would stay there again. Parking for your car.
5 to 10 minute walk to the hub of Camps Bay. Pretty walk along the beach front but not sure if it is safe to walk it at night.
