We really enjoyed our stay at Balfour Place Guesthouse. From our room on the 1st floor we had a great view on Camps Bay beach which is only 5 minutes walking away. Also the breakfast was great - eggs were freshly prepared by the friendly staff.

We were lucky enough to book the honeymoon suite and I must say we weren't disappointed. This place is a hidden gem and within only a few minutes walk to Camps Bay. The room we had was huge with a balcony , sitting area and an enormous bathroom with jacuzzi bath. The views from the balcony looked out over Camps...

Overall acceptable but no attention to detail. Stayed in the honeymoon suite - shower was dirty, towels were replaced next day but left dirty towels in the room. The kettle in the room doesnt reach a plug so has to be moved to use Standard not aceceptable for the price you pay Loads of stairs, nobody offered to help

We stayed recently at Balfour for a wedding and from start to finish is was great. I am a fussy sleeper and before we arrived Janet was great about sorting out a room with an extra large bed for us. The location is great, just a short walk to the front with lots of restaurants and a little supermarket. There...

We had the most amazing stay at Balfour, the views were stunning from every balcony, the location was perfect just a 2 minute walk from the sea! We had the whole place with a group of friends for a wedding and we couldn't have asked for a better suited place to stay. Would highly recommend x

Everything was great! The room was very big and clean, the balcony has more beautiful sightseeing. Service and breakfast was excellent. Location was easy to walk at Camps Bay. More restaurants and cafes so close to the hotel.

We got what we have booked. The view from our balcony was awesome (Honeymoon Suite). We had sun the whole day and a beautiful view of the beach and the Lions Head. The only thing i could not understand was, that the water in our Minibar was not included. One bottle per person per day would be enough.

My wife and I have just stayed in this wonderful guesthouse. We should have been here for 5 nights however owing to the Joburg passport control issues we missed our connecting flight and therefore it was only 4 nights.

Spent the second half of my honeymoon there, enjoyed the balcony view (pic attached) and the friendliness of the mangers and staff. It's 3 minutes walk from wide variety of FnB beach dinners. Recommended for couples who wants to get away from boring commerical hotels.
