“Great Guest House Fab Location”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

Stayed at the Beach House Guest House in Jan 2012 for a few nights. The location is absolutly brilliant. Just a 2min walk if that to the beach which is just lush. The rooms her are basic but really nice and spacious. There is a lovely court yard to sit out and enjoy the sunshine and a small pool to take a wee dip if a bit hot. Breakfast was lovely with loads of choice and was fresh. All in all a great plae to stay and would definatley stay here again if returning to Hout Bay.

Room Tip: Our room only had a ceiling fan which was fine but got a bit noisy but you get used to it.

Large rooms and some with a beach/harbour view. It is on a busy road so you will get some morning road noise as the local town gets on with the day. It has secure off street parking and a great common area with and outdoor relaxation space next to a sparkling pool.

Very friendly service staff serve superb breakfast and are very helpfull to offer advice and help re travel & attractions.
Fantastic location in the dunes on the beach.
Quite secure parking and facilities once inside the fence.
Rooms could use extra maintenance, bathrooms need to be renewed and get an adequate door to the bedroom .
The Beach House is located at a roundabout with rather intense trafic (also at night).
Bring earplugs if you book rooms 4 or 1 which are the most noisy ones with windows facing the roundabout!

A lovely place to stay at if you are planning a couple of days in Hout Bay. The rooms are clean and nice and the rooms on second floor have got a lovely view ocer Chapman's Peak and the mountains. Wonderful breakfast, especially the continental - with fruit, muesli, a big fruit platter and a lovely muffin.

We stayed here for 5 nights. We loved it. The rooms on the top deck have a great view of the sand dunes and mountains. We loved sitting outside on the deck watching the birds. Thomas and Vick are great hosts and the rest of the staff are lovely. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are large with lovely decoration.The shower room is a little small but fine. The website has very honest photos. The dining room and lounge are very elegant and the parking is secure. Breakfast was great - you need a healthy appetite for the cooked breakfast and the continental breakfast was perfect The beach House is easy walking distance from the beach, good restaurants, boat trips to seal island and shops. It is safe to walk. This is a great base for exploring - Chapman's peak drive is stunning and the Constantia wineries are only 10 minutes drive. We had a wonderful time and we recommend it.

I stayed in the hotel for about 2 weeks during Christmas and New Year holidays. It fully deserved its 3 stars and can pretend to more! The most wonderful things are: magnificent views on surrounding mountains (especially from upper floor), level of service and hospitality of management and personnel (superb), interior, location (city sightseeing bus stops closely, lots of restaurants and a shopping center, harbor).
There are things to be considered while choosing this hotel (depends on your trip's goals): no sea-view (huge dunes block it even from upper floor), no snack-bar, quite busy road nearby, cold sea water (never warm).
All the best to Thomas and Vick! Thank you for great holidays!
