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...
