We had a most enjoyable stay here, thanks to the beautiful garden, tasteful and very comfortable interiors, delicious breakfast and in particular the courteous, friendly and attentive staff, headed up by Ayrton who was most helpful and gracious. We would've loved to stay in this beautiful corner of Bakoven for longer - perhaps next time! Till then, Thanks once again,...

I'm a bit of a cricket fan and stayed here during the England test match. Everything was just about perfect. The guest house was about a 15 minute walk from the main bars and restaurant in Camps Bay. We had a room with a beautiful view overlooking the sea with the twelve apostle mountains behind us. The grounds are attractive...

My family (Myself, husband, twelve year old twins and my mother) stayed for 4 nights - it was a great stay and we felt very comfortable. We had two connecting rooms on the ground floor near the reception. The rooms offered a lovely patio with view of the ocean. The breakfast buffet was delicious. All the staff members I met...

We spent the first 4 nights of our honeymoon here and couldn't have wanted for more. Great location, good breakfast, attentive but not intrusive staff (Ayrton is particularly excellent at restaurant recommendations). We had a lovely room (16) overlooking the sea with our own entrance and carpark space. If you're looking for the big characterless hotel with endless facilities this...

Ayrton at reception was especially helpful when we arrived ensuring a smooth and quick check in process, offering to make a reservation for us in the evening on the Camps Bay strip, and answering all our questions about the area. Our room was lovely, looking out over the pool view to stunning coastal views of Backoven. Symon was very attentive,...

Our overall experience of this lovely hotel was positive. Our room was at the back of the Hotel - other rooms provided a spectacular panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean but we were not disappointed by our room; it was clean, capacious and restful. Access to the room was not straightforward but it was manageable. The staff at reception were...

The physical facility was excellent and some of the management was very professional, but the manager of the place was a real boor.
