I booked my brother and his wife in at Sweet Ocean View Guesthouse. Their service from day one was impressive! When my family arrived we found that they were to stay in Sweet Berries (the blue house). So neat, clean, fully equipped and newly renovated with the staff assisting us every step of the way! We could not believe that...

Good location in Sea Point, but "ocean view" is very euphemistic (800 m far away). Mamangement charges 39 Rand per day for WIFI although this should be free (website). Good breakfast, but all customers are jammed together at one big table.

We booked with Sweetest Guesthouses for 4 nights prior to going on a trip into Namibia and Botswana. We stayed at Ocean View and our friends stayed at Sweet Berries across the road. Ocean View was great - we had a room upstairs, so a good view particularly of Lion's Head. Lovely sitting room and balcony upstairs as well. Breakfast...

We originally booked at Sweet Olive but due to the quiet winter season we were asked to move to Sweet Ocean View. This property is a quaint old terrace house that has been beautifully restored. It is a three bedroom house and we had one room with a private bathroom. There were no other guests so we had the place...
