We enjoyed our stay but feel it's time Finchley guest house had a make over, the room we stayed in needs it badly, the bathroom is mess and the dining room has mould, damp, cracks,and paint peeling off not pretty to see. The staff where lovely though always smiling.

This airy place is perfect for staying near the beach and restaurants of camps bay. It's a little bit noisy when other people come in and out of their rooms but that's because it's quite intimate. The breakfast was lovely and the staff are really friendly and kind!
