We stayed with 2 children and found it very convenient. The location is great and the folks here are very friendly. The ocean views are fantastic and rooms are spacious and clean. We can highly recommend this place and would come back.

Pro
The staff was superb. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
The view was fantastic.
The location was great. It was right next to Camps Bay so that you're close to the action but your not in it. You can choose to have a quiet night drinking on the balcony or live it up in Camps Bay. It is also easy to get to town.
I only attached pics of the room because I think there is enough pics of the view on Tripadvisor.

Con
NONE!

Note: I would suggest the pool deck rooms (there are only 2). You get to walk right out to the pool and the pool deck. You also get the ocean view. ( see pics)

Room Tip: The pool deck rooms

We stayed over the 1st week of December for 3 nights and we absolutely loved the place. Situated in the amazing Camps Bay area, the hotel is a nice 10 mins walk from the Camps Bay beach. The rooms are clean and nice and we had a good ocean facing room. A very quiet and safe area.
Staff are very friendly and help you with any taxi bookings and day tours. Delicious buffet breakfast spread and the chef is also very friendly and can cook up something as per your requirements. We were vegetarians and he did cook us some baked beans with lots of vegetables. Loved it.
Our first visit to Cape Town and we loved the stay here and a great start to our South Africa holiday.

I have been staying at Ocean View for over ten years and it remains my favourite hotel in Cape Town. Far enough from the city centre - this is a hidden gem! Close enough to Camps Bay's main attractions to be in walking distance this guest house has it all.

I stayed on business on this trip and nothing was too much trouble. Don't let the entrance put you off once inside the main gate you are in for a special treat. The views from the rooms are stunning and from the terraces you can see from Lion's Head to the 12 Apostles.

Breakfasts are hearty and the honesty bar remains a nice touch.

The staff are simply the best around - helpful, informative and completely unobtrusive. I took colleagues there on this trip and they are talking about when can we go back.

We arrived at the guest house at 8.30am on Saturday morning and fully expected to just drop our bags and return later when our room was ready. However, although our room was not ready, we were shown around the guest house and then offered breakfast in the lovely dining room overlooking the sea. Our room, when ready was lovely with large confortable bed, sea view and large, smart bathroom.

The guest house is set in beautiful gardens, has a small pool area with loungers and serves a great buffet breakfast with a special cooked menu each day. The staff are very obliging, scurrying off to telephone places to book trips for guests, make enquiries, etc. There is secure parking within the grounds. You are about a 15 minute walk along the scenic promenade to the centre of Camps Bay - an easy drive in the evening or short taxi ride. All in all our stay here provided a great start to our wonderful two week stay in South Africa.
