Small Guesthouse in elevated position in a quiet area of Hout Bay. Convenient for local restaurants and the beach. Very friendly and helpful owners who serve an excellent breakfast by the pool.
Convenient for visit to Cape Point via impressive Chapmans Peak Drive and still handy for Cape Town by car or local bus.

Room Tip: First floor rooms with balconies overlook the pool and have fabulous views across the bay

We had a great stay at Amblewood - 2 nights at the start of our holiday in the Inglenook room. The room is huge with its own veranda overlooking the bay. The view was stunning. The bed was large and extremely comfortable leading to excellent nights' sleep. There is every amenity you could need including a large safe, fridge and TV plus a very good bathroom. Breakfast is taken overlooking the bay and is delicious. We had been worried about lack of air-conditioning but the guest house is high up and has a breeze which keeps the temperature moderated and we would never have needed it. There is an honesty bar and delightful area to sit with books by the swimming pool. The drive into town is short and there is a very good choice of restaurants and an excellent beach. What makes a stay here even better is the delightful owners who provide advice on what to do and are amazingly helpful. Amblewood is a really good Guest House and is strongly recommended - we will definitely return..

Room Tip: We loved the Inglenook room for its size and view

We just love this place - just stayed for the 6th time and we still love this place.
Its so handy for everything but the best things besides the owners and the dog its only 20 minutes from the airport.
June and trevor welcome you as old friends and its nice and relaxing from the minute you arrive.
This time had a room upstairs which was superb. Great views and just a great start to a 3 week holiday.
See you in December 2014.

Room Tip: All rooms have fantastic views but overall the upstairs ones - take the biscuit!

We saved the best until last and spent the last two days of our trip to SA in Amblewood. It is a haven of peace & tranquility, with beautiful bedrooms, a lovely deck and pool, and magnificent views across the bay. Trevor and June were perfect hosts - friendly, attentive and professional.
We enjoyed long lingering breakfasts on the verandah while chatting with Trevor, and we came back in mid-afternoon each day to make the most of the pool and all that Amblewood has to offer. Wifi internet access was available throughout the house and verandah, which our daughters appreciated! The restaurants and town weren't within safe walking distance unfortunately, but Trevor was always able to offer advice and make bookings for us. Amblewood was one of the highlights of our trip to SA, and we have already recommended it to our friends.
