Reviewed 9 December 2015

The physical facility was excellent and some of the management was very professional, but the manager of the place was a real boor. The location is not on the shore; an impression I had before arriving, yet the breakfast is truly prepared by a chef and is served in a great little dining room. I checked out quite early to...

The room offered a lovely patio with view of the ocean. The breakfast buffet was delicious. All the staff members I met...

This was our first stop of our 2.5 week holiday and it certainly did not disappoint.

Ocean View House offers spacious, view rooms in a natural setting. The view from the pool or garden of the coast and Table Mt is exceptional. The property is secure and private yet within walking distance of Camps Bay restaurants and beaches. An inexpensive cab ride is 15 minutes from the V & A Waterfront. It is ideal if you...

We stayed here for four nights at the start of our honeymoon. We were in one of the rooms just down the hall from reception. The room was spacious and comfortable with a sitting area (both indoors and outdoors) and a big, comfy bed. It's about a 15 minute walk into Camps Bay from the hotel, which we did most...
