Reviewed 7 April 2017

Stylish, professionally run guest house, with magnificent views of Hout Bay and the ocean. Very comfortable accommodation, friendly yet professional staff, and a good range of breakfast options. There is a small pool and a comfortable guest lounge with TV, books, etc. For a mid-price guesthouse, this gem of a place offers terrific value.

Spotless accomodation well situated with a great view over the bay. As described by other guests, the host is incredibly helpful and friendly. We stayed just one night but could easily have stayed longer. Rooms are immaculate. Breakfast very good. For 3 star rating, surpassed expectations. Will stay again and recommend.

We stayed at Hout Bay View for a night, and the place is beautifully maintained. One can get a wonderful view during sunset/sunrise from the balcony and breakfast was served to order too. However, we can't help but think that the rates have been slightly overpriced, as the rooms were rather basic (no open windows, shower amenities or air-conditioning).
