My wife and I stayed at 51 on Camps Bay Guesthouse for a few days of our honeymoon. The owner and host Merryl was extremely welcoming and helped us book some of the restaurants we wanted to go to. The area is beautiful and the room we had was extremely spacious. Breakfast was two courses and very tasty. Very fairly...

The B&B is well positioned (5min walk) close to the main street along the water. The bed is comfortable, the room large, breakfast nicely prepared and plenty of it. Merryl is very helpful in providing information on the local activities and attractions. Parking is available outside. I would happily stay there next time we visit Cape Town

My husband and I recently stayed at 51 on Camps for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. It is in a great location- just a short walk (5 minutes or so) to the Camps Bay promenade with all the restaurants and the beach. We stayed in the deluxe suite and the views are amazing. Two full walls are windows with...

If you are looking for the ultimate place to stay in Camps Bay this is it...far from the normal "B&B" expected this is just luxury. The attention to detail is unique and the staff clearly love being here. Merryl makes you feel so welcome and I just wish it could have been a longer stay.
