Thank you for the feedback. I beg to differ: There are NO broken loungers at the pool and the restaurant next door that all our guests use for breakfast, is very nice with good food. The staff are always very helpful. Kind regards Marlie

Converted house tucked away at the back of Place on the Bay. Unfortunately, no bar and no restaurant in Fairways or hotel. Breakfast was by voucher at a busy café next door. Room was rather warm even with AirCon on.

The location and the price cannot be beaten. If you want to be in Camps Bay, it's almost worth it just to have a convenient place to park, but you also get a wonderful hostess and a room that is clean, spacious, and comfy. The room was a bit cold, but the bed was plenty warm, and you should be...
