“Great value at Primi Sea Castle”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

My husband and I took advantage of the discounted winter special rate to get a large sea-view facing room. We had a minor snafu checking in (but this was due to Telkom issues and not hotel issues.) Breakfast was good in the morning and hot items were promptly prepared to order. I could see our room (which was on the lowest level and facing the ocean and street) being noisy in the high-season, but in general, with the windows shut, there was little to no street noise at night. Amenities were wonderful and the bathroom had a very large shower with great water pressure. The bartender (whose name I forget, which makes me feel bad because he remembered mine!) was amazing and very attentive and nice. Parking on the property is limited but there are many spaces in the neighborhood and the neighborhood itself is very safe. It was easy to walk to restaurants in Camp's Bay. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay at Primi Sea Castle again.

Michael was incredibly helpful and friendly during the booking process and our stay. Our sea-view room was stunning and had its own balcony and hot tub! It was nice to stay someplace where there are so few guests and you feel very valued by the staff. Also, an incredible deal for the money! I'd recommend this to anyone staying in Camps Bay.

False advertising - Rooms as shown on website does not correspond to the actual thing.
Shower floor was horribly dirty with mold, which surely accumulated over weeks and was not cleaned properly. The over cluttered entrance with old unused canoes and surfboards stacked against the wall, gives a bad first impression for what is rated to be a four star establishment. Some of the furniture is old and weathered and should be replaced. Other than that the staff was very friendly and efficient. The view was spectacular. The breakfast was great. All in all a nice stay.

Room Tip: Make certain that the room as shown on the website is actually still furnished and arranged in the s...

This hotel is located in a prime area the views overlooking the ocean and beach are fantastic especially while eating breakfast on a clear morning. The rooms are spacious and the service is good. Excellent value for money.

Our trip to cape town was a memorable one and primi seacastle is one of the main reasons for that. Flanked by the 12 apostles behind and the ocean in front, the guest house is situated right on the camps bay beach - a great location.
The room - classic suite was delighfully spacious and wonderfully furnished (with two televisions!!, bookshelf with books, music system, comfortable couches - you name it). It had a large balcony overlooking the ocean - where we ended up spending considerable part of the mornings and evenings. The bathroom had a huge bathtub and a nice separate shower area.
Their breakfast area had a nice information corner with many brochures and an ever smiling and helpful person behind the reception desk.
The many restaurants, mall and bus stop of camps bay are within a minute's walk from the hotel and even cliffton beach 4 takes about 5 mins on foot.
Staying at Primi, we were never bored even when we were confined to the room due to inclement weather a whole day, and given a choice, I would surely like to stay a second time and for a longer duration.

Room Tip: Rooms 9 and 10.
