This is a lovely little spot, 5mins walk from sea point, which is full of nice little restaurants and coffee shops and practically on the promenade. The guest house is very homely, i stayed in the house opposite the reception, which is a gorgeous little yellow home, decorated with an old 'skill english feel to it. It was clean and... More

Good location in Sea Point, but "ocean view" is very euphemistic (800 m far away). Mamangement charges 39 Rand per day for WIFI although this should be free (website). Good breakfast, but all customers are jammed together at one big table.
