As soon as I arrived, I had the feeling of dread and I wanted to run away. Unfortunately, I had to stay for one night. This place is soulless and dirty. My fridge had crumbs and a hair in it and the basin still had old shaving stubs in it. Hair on my pillow! The carpets have obviously not been...

No Tea or Coffee Broken Furniture Air in Shower and Bathroom Filthy Bins Peeling and old Toilet Broken skirting boards empty fridge We felt very disappointed paying at the high end for a room for one night in Camps Bay. If it wasn't for the view I would have been very embarrassed to say I stayed there.

No management or staff in sight, no greeting on arrival. Staff member dropped keys and left. No breakfast as advertised, facilities very run down and no tables on the terrace. Broken chairs and tables lying around. Terrible overall! Supposedly self catering but not advertised as such - and no facilities to self cater in the room. The kitchen is marked...

Stayed here over the Cape Town Jazz Fest. Great location, beautiful view. A lot more needs to be done. Toilet at the entrance is beyond NOT amazing. I don't understand the concept and it is not easy on the eye. The cleaning can be improved, A LOT! Bathroom was not up to scratch, quite filthy. It was okay because well,...

This place is in a good location. It has beautiful views of the sea, the beach, and the mountain. The linen was great. With good management, or knowledge of hospitality, it can be great. The room has no mirrors. The room is supposed to have a queen size bed, but it had a double size bed. The shower / bath...

It's a guest house. Friendly welcome. Table Mountain behind, Seaview. Great location. No food etc. Around, car is mandatory. The house itself appears somehow not ready. Or partly broken already. Pool dirty. OK, owner started cleaning the other day. Furniture at balcony broken or shaky at least. Breakfast was a special experience. Just put the eggs at a plate and...

The views are superb from the balcony but they are not private as stated on bookingsites. The pool area is ok but could benefit from some decorations and cosy details. You will need a car to go to the Beach - you can walk but the walk is steep and a b bit boring. The owner is very friendly and...

We were looking forward to our stay in Cape Town and it was great apart from where we stayed - it was filthy, the brother of the owner was disinterested in us, no supplies in the rooms, pool dirty, no room cleaning, miles to walk to beach, would not advise staying there

Definitely not deserving of its stars: Apart from the 22h lock-up of the gate, the fake green and not really well-adjusted grass carpet on the wooden deck (which is then covered by it…), the TV not working, no breakfast offered, the strangely deserted establishment-not romantically quiet! just odd), not even a cup for our toothbrushes (when you start noticing those...

I'd love to say it was ok as the view of Camps Bay and 12 apostles was amazing and the room we had was great, but there was too many other issues to rate it higher than poor - Pool was actually more like a fishpond (no way would you swim in it!) - Nothing stocked (no coffee, milk sachets...
