Reviewed 10 February 2015

Several families stayed at Ocean View House prior to traveling to Franschhoek for our daughter's wedding. The oceans views were beautiful and the grounds were great for relaxing. We enjoyed the good food at restaurants nearby in Camps Bay. Try out Baked Bistro in Bakoven, Camps Bay for coffee and pastries in the morning. We loved our stay here.

We stayed 2 nights with our 2 yr old son and enjoyed every second. Great room, great views, very nice gardens with hammocks and extremely friendly staff who also enjoyed entertaining our son. Great breakfast, too.

Terrific hotel close to Camps Bay. Not cheap but Camps Bay is an expensive place to stay. Clean modern rooms with ac. Nice pool area and sundeck. Friendly staff. Long walk back from the town centre after dinner and a few drinks- better take a taxi😉

Fine little hotel in nice grounds, within easy walking distance of Camps Bay beaches, restaurants and shops. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Cape Malay style dinner prepared by enthusiastic staff a highlight. Overall, an excellent base for exploring Cape Town and surroundings.

Very pleasant place to spend a few days. Walkable distance from centre but better by car due to steep hill on way back. Pool area great to relax although like most places in SA the pools are not heated so more of a plug in and jump out pool!

Dear Peter C Thank you for taking the time to review Ocean View Guest House! Very much appreciated. It is very true, that South African pools are not heated due to our great weather.

Spent the last five nights of our three week tour of the Southern Cape here. Great choice as we could not only explore Cape Town itself but relax in great surroundings. Views are great and all the staff are second to non. Rooms are spotless and nothing is too much trouble. We will return !

We stayed here for two nights in late December. The location and views are perfect - close to Camps Bay, but not directly in the business. The room was comfortable and clean.

Thoroughly enjoyable three-night stay at Ocean View House towards the end of our drive down the Garden Route. Our room and adjoining bathroom were well appointed and comfortable and the view over the ocean was magnificent especially at sunset. No complaints either about the breakfast - loved the colourful crockery - which we were able to eat outside every morning,...
