We finished off our 3 week South African trip in Cape Town and stayed at 51 for the last few nights. Agree with all the other comments, the location is great, and the service really was good. Meryll (the owner) and Dawn (the manager/housekeeper) went beyond the call of duty to be helpful, and on our last day when we...

I recently stayed at 51 on Camps Bay with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. It is a boutique B&B with fantastic rooms, amazing views of the sea and mountains, great breakfasts and lovely hosts. Merryl was incredibly helpful in providing restaurant recommendations (would def try The Codfather and Hussars) and all round tips. Highly recommend.

5-stars to Meryl & Steve for this B&B. When we arrived from Jo-burg and there was lavender sprinkled all over our room, which made the whole rooms smell AMAZING. We had the luxury sea-view room which had a great view of Camps Bay from the room. There was a balcony that we were able to enjoy, while sipping a glass...
