Fabulous place!! Highly recommended!
We were booked here for 7 days to attend to the wedding of my daughter. So glad we picked Ocean View House to be our home the enitre time. The place was fantastic! we loved the landscaped gardens and the views of the ocean and the mountain. The superior room and the milkwood suite were both spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and kind. we felt well taken cared for. Breakfast was something we looked forward to every morning. We loved the hot croissant and newly cooked omelletes. Each morning, they had a chef's special ( eggs bendecit, 3 cheese omellette, etc) which we enjoyed sampling. Cant wait to come back to this beautiful property!!

Wow nestled right under the 12 appostols mountain range with a sea view to kill what more could you ask well the breakfast was amazing it is about 15 min walk into the bay center. The grounds with its ponds and landscaping is simply breath taking. We will be staying here again.

Nice hotel, great view !
Great service, everything you neef but not overdone, good value!
The hotel is just around the corner from camps bay, with à great ocean view from the pooldeck. Service is great; warm & efficiënt withouten overdoing it. As an example the 24hr honesty bar sets the tone; it.s all there but informal. Breakfast is great. lots of fresh fruits, homemade muesli, choice of cheeses and eggs. good quality! Room we had was directly on the pooldeck, tour won sliding doors! Room was super clean, bit small, but had everything you need. We Will definately go back here if we travel to ct, and thuis surely recommend the place.

Beautiful view of the sunsets on the ocean
Great breakfast, helpful staff
Our room was on the pool deck and had a beautiful view overlooking the ocean. We found it very quiet and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast had many selections of fruit and breads as well the chef would prepare eggs to your likening. Each day there was a breakfast special. Lunch was available for a charge however we were always out and did not eat there. As is commom to most of South Africa we were encouraged not to walk after dark and to take a taxi if we were in Camps Bay for supper.
