Great staff. Made us feel welcome from arrival to check-out. Lovely views. If possible try to get a room with a ocean-facing view. Great sunset on the pool deck. Had a very nice breakfast the morning. Will definitely join them again.

Great place to stay. Would happily stay here again. Lovely room (no2) great views. The bathroom let the room down even though the shower was very good. Only 4 beds on the decking area for possibly 10 guests - need a few more !

Perfect stay, one disadvantage: there is nothing in the neighborhood where you can buy some wine or beers and the little honesty bar of the guesthouse was not always filled up. But very friendly and helpful staff + the room and terrace were perfect!!!

We really had a lovely time stay at Finchley Guesthouse, it is out of the hustle and bustle of Beach road but close enough to walk to. It had a lovely pool and stunning views. We were received very friendly and as we had to leave early the next morning we were pleasantly surprised when the manager woke up early...

We enjoyed our stay but feel it's time Finchley guest house had a make over, the room we stayed in needs it badly, the bathroom is mess and the dining room has mould, damp, cracks,and paint peeling off not pretty to see. The staff where lovely though always smiling.

This airy place is perfect for staying near the beach and restaurants of camps bay. It's a little bit noisy when other people come in and out of their rooms but that's because it's quite intimate. The breakfast was lovely and the staff are really friendly and kind!

Average guesthouse. There doesn't appear to be any staff available at any time of the day. Basic room which could do with freshening up. Our particular room had a really odd smell of like paint that hadn't dried properly. There is also no air conditioning in the rooms which is the main reason why we would not return. We visited...
