The location of this place is great, staff/manager very helpful and welcoming, gave a couple of good recommendations and the the ladies who come in and clean are very friendly and discreet if you are around in the rooms, not intrusive at all. The place feels very safe secure and relaxed. A couple of things to be worked on include the plumbing, both the toilets broke persistently with the flush getting disconnected from the handle so you have to open up the top and manually lift it...this was really annoying. Also the kitchen lacked a few essentials, scissors for example, no hand soap and no towel, though I have to say it also came with a few extras which we appreciated...milk on first day, tea, coffee etc. Enjoyed our stay here, but did find it a bit expensive given some of the basics in the apartment weren't quite up to standard we were expecting.

Great place! Very friendly! Helped me and mum with our bags< as I had foot surgery 2 weeks before. Went for my first check up the next day.
Close to the city. Safe area and very quiet.
Will recommend it to other people!
Thank you for making us feel at home!

We just finished staying 7 nights at this guesthouse. Overall we had a great stay and the location is great, within walking distance of many restaurants and shops on kloof and long - and very safe to walk to as well. It wad also less than 10 mins to drive to camps bay, Clifton, and the waterfront. The staff were helpful and the little pool was nice for a refresher. The only very minor things that would have been nice would be for the rooms to have shampoo and conditioner available and for the soap and instant coffee refilled after they were done - wifi was also quite spotty and bathrooms dated. Overall, great stay though and would recommend for the price.

My children, husband and I had the pleasure of staying at 5 Camp Street for 9 nights and cannot fault the location, premises or staff.

The pool area was great, the accommodation was spacious and clean and the premises felt very safe and secure. Nothing was too much trouble for the management who were so helpful and really friendly. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to return.

My brother, myself and our partners stayed here last week and we can 100% vouch for this place! The apartment was clean, central, close to cool restaurants and bars and met all of our needs. The best part about the place was the hosts - a truly wonderful family. They could not do enough to help us and were so delightfully charming. Thank you Emmy and mum for being such beautiful people!
