I'm afraid I have to agree with the review below. We also had the misfortune to stay at this guesthouse earlier this year and the complaints below mirror our experience. What was more worrying was that 3 other groups we spoke to also had major complaints and felt they had been mis-sold their room. When we broached our problems with the manager (once we managed to track her down) she totally agreed - she told us that complaintswere very usual from customers and she couldn't diagree with any of our points (dirty room, torn and stained sheets/towels, a bizarre bathroom where absolutely nothing seemed to work and the fact that the room hadn't even been decorated - you could still see the pencil measurements the workmen had written on the plasterboard). One of the most worrying revelations was that they had not replaced the towels/sheets since the place opened 6 yrs ago. If true, and I've no reason to doubt, I find that pretty disgusting.
As for the free internet access - be very careful, the computer is riddled with viruses.
maybe things ahve improved but if I was going back to Camps Bay (amazing place), I certainly wouldn't stay there, particularly given the array of accomodation on offer.
