What a disaster The rooms where not available that we had booked. The place was dirty and in poor repair. No one seemed to care. We stayed one night and then checked out. I had stayed here in 2017 and had a good experience. Do not be fooled by the pictures I think I forgot to mention the bar and music venue below. Hoping for a nice nights rest not here you won't. Camps Bay is wonderful this place needs to be refurbished. I want my money back!!

A beautiful, atmospheric, old building with the kindest and extremely attentive staff. Attention to detail and general care in the fixtures is lacking, and yet, that said, slept well in beautiful bedding and a comfortable bed and thoroughly enjoyed my stay, with an early morning swim in the turquoise ocean, a 3 minute meander from the guest house.

We had a huge appartement with two bathrooms, one with a ancient whirlpool. The bed was also very big and comfy. The view to the beach from the balcony was the highlight. Place was very clean and staff always helpful. Walking distance to beach, shops and Restaurants. 15 minutes drive to downtown Cape Town. We d love to come again.
