Reviewed 20 January 2014

very comfortable stylish house with spacious rooms, which gives you feelings of home and privacy. not far from the ocean and short driving time from main city attractions. Friendly and competent staff. Negative - we could hear our neighbours from the upper floor.

We booked this charming guest house at the last minute based on excellent reviews and were not disappointed. great breakfast, great pool, long enough to actually swim. One of us had to leave at 4am for a flight and was met by staff to see him off. Restaurants were suggested and reserved for us.

We stayed for 5 nights and were really pleased with our choice - secure parking, and good access by car to Camps Bay, Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront. The welcome was very friendly,, and accommodation and breakfasts were excellent.

Room Tip: We had the ground floor room facing the pool, so enjoyed the late afternoon sun on the terrace.

The walden Suites are well located and offer secure parking. However this was not a 5 star experience. The room allocated wasn't ensuite, bathroom was across the hallway, and we were asked to pay extra to upgrade although we were the only people in the house. Bedding was insuffiecient and we had to look for blankets in other rooms. There was no service to book an early breakfast or give feedback. This is surely a must with a 5 star establishment?! Also no coffee or tea facilities in the room. Walden suites has a great charm to it, which was ruined by a lack of service and attention to detail.

if staying in fresnaye, cape town meets your travel plans (located 1/2 way between cape town waterfront and camp bay), walden suites is an excellent choice. from superb front desk service and arranging for all pick ups and activities, large, comfy rooms and bathrooms with ocean views and balconies, friendly, relaxed, and quiet family style b&b with a real espresso machine for your personal use - this small hotel was terrific. highly recommend

Room Tip: ask for ocean view room, or upgrade from montain view to ocean, if available

The hostesses were warm and helpful. Our rooms were sumptuous, spacious and light. We occupied the suite (what a lovely fireplace, and the bath can "seat" a small village) and another room on the ground floor, and loved the openings onto the pool area and a magnificent view down the hill towards the sea, and up towards Lion's Head. The breakfast was fabulous - tasty, with goodies for vegetarians and carnivores alike. My mom was ready to move in. We booked parking on site as an extra, rather than parking on the street. Fresnaye is very well located for access to Cape Town itself, and to restaurants close by for dinner. If you want to go for a run, then it will give you some great hill training.

Spacious and well kept rooms, friendly staff & Camps Bay is a great location. Our room had a nice view of the Ocean. Parking is available and to top it off you get a nice Continental Breakfast to start your morning. Hope to go back there between Nov and Feb when Weather is South Africa is more pleasant ...
