A five star place
Staff food location
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.

Breakfast, pool, honesty bar
One of the best holidays we have had. Bakoven is 1.2km east Camps bay which is a lively beach area with many restaurants. Great hotel with friendly, helpful staff. We hope to return next year.

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.

Great b & b overlooking ocean
Location, Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and clean room. Good breakfast.
Stayed 3 nights in September. Initially told we would have to change rooms after 1st night. Staff were extremely helpful and juggled things around so that we didn't have to move. Enjoyed our stay immensely and would definitely stay there again.

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.

Price/quality ++++
My stay was very short but I would definetely come back tospend a holiday here. The guest house is big, has nice gardens and is close to the sea side and the nice neighbourhood of Camps Bay. Katrin and her husband are very friendly and helpful.
