51 on Camps Bay Guest House is great! Beautiful view from the balcony, lovely room, lovely breakfast and with the centre of Camps Bay within easy walking distance. The owner, Merryl, really made us enjoy our stay!

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Nov-16. The owner/host, Meryl, was incredibly helpful with recommendations for Camps Bay, Cape Town and broader SA. Location was perfect and the accommodation was just what we needed. Would definitely go back!

My wife and I stayed at 51 on Camps Bay Guesthouse for a few days of our honeymoon. The owner and host Merryl was extremely welcoming and helped us book some of the restaurants we wanted to go to. The area is beautiful and the room we had was extremely spacious. Breakfast was two courses and very tasty. Very fairly...

The B&B is well positioned (5min walk) close to the main street along the water. The bed is comfortable, the room large, breakfast nicely prepared and plenty of it. Merryl is very helpful in providing information on the local activities and attractions. Parking is available outside. I would happily stay there next time we visit Cape Town

A lovely small guest house, 5 minutes form camps bay beach. Great large rooms, and views, a balcony that overlooks the 12 apostles and the sea. Great omelettes at breakfast and what the host does not know about dining in Cape Town, Camps Bay, Houts bay and Constantia is not worth knowing. Also, a great same day laundry service.A lovely...

My husband and I recently stayed at 51 on Camps for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. It is in a great location- just a short walk (5 minutes or so) to the Camps Bay promenade with all the restaurants and the beach. We stayed in the deluxe suite and the views are amazing. Two full walls are windows with...

If you are looking for the ultimate place to stay in Camps Bay this is it...far from the normal "B&B" expected this is just luxury. The attention to detail is unique and the staff clearly love being here. Merryl makes you feel so welcome and I just wish it could have been a longer stay.

A most enjoyable few days was had at 51 Camps Bay. Merryl is a wonderful host and willingly assisted us with any queries we had with suggestions, making bookings and the like. The staff too were lovelyl The location is very pretty and only a 5 minute walk to the beachfront and restaurants. A gorgeous spot.
