The hotel is very suitable for relaxation especially after a long trip to Cape Town. The place is very quite and clean and the staff is very helpful. It locate on a top of a hill and has a panaromic view of the Bantary bay. The only problem is that you have to have or get a taxi to go...

Dear Badr, Thank you for leaving us a review, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Sadly our views do come at a price and ours is that you either have to walk, be it up or down, quite a steep hill to get to any amenities or take a taxi, thankfully taxi's here in Cape Town...

Located in the lovely hills of Camps Bay, gorgeous view overlooking the Atlantic! Staff is friendly and you feel at home the moment you get there... Good location to go explore the rest of Cape Town, the staff have good knowledge of local restaurants in the area!

Very beautiful hotel with warm and friendly staff. The house doesn't give the impression of a hotel...It's like living in an apartment where you have your private bedroom and share living room, terrace and pool with the other tenants. The service is excellent and very personal. Enjoyed staying there and wish it would have been a few more days.

Stunning property and views, enjoyed putting my feet up to enjoy with a glass of wine. Staff were very attentive and friendly. The breakfast was the best I've ever had at a hotel - great variety, very fresh and tasty. Extremely clean - perfect for solos or couples travelling. Highly recommend staying here

Marnie, Russell, and the entire staff are simply top of class. Every need and request was attended to. Russel's culinary flair is evident with the meals, and Marnie's warmth and thoughtfulness is equally evident with a surprise drawn bath and candles upon our return from dinner. A true Cape Town Gem. I just wish we lived closer in order to...
