Stayed for 1 night March 2016. Faultless except for a little building noise nearby which of course is out or the hotel's control. Great room, small balcony but good view of Table Mountain. Very well stocked room mini bar included. Small but well presented bar, lounge and pool area. Helpful and very pleasant staff. Just a 5 minute walk to...

A fantastic boutique hotel with lovely interiors and close proximity to beach. Serves only breakfast so one needs to take care of the other meals at the adjoining camps bay Street which has enough options. Many bars line up the beach as well though I was surprised with how early they close. The beach is stunning with clear water and...

Really enjoyed our stay in Sea Five, beautiful room, very comfortable, we enjoyed the great views and smells (fresh flowers, sea and mountain air). Check-in by Rose was excellent, other staff seemed sometimes a bit disengaged, phone was rarely picked up and in the afternoon we twice had to wait ages for sun mattresses and to order drinks. Lovely furniture,...

Our first stay in a boutique and up market guest house. Simply wonderful. Arrived to be shown to their underground car park and from that moment on we were just looked after to the highest standard. A few minutes downhill walk to the strip, with all the bars and restaurants anyone could wish for. Do however take the staff's advice...

Sea Five is quietly situated in the heart of Camps Bay but only a a few minutes walk from the restaurants and beach. The attention to detail and comfort are well beyond most small properties such as this, with only five rooms and a suite the property also boasts a well stocked bar, a lounge with plenty of space to...

We stayed here for four nights over Christmas 2015 as part of a three week trip for our honeymoon. It was a really lovely guesthouse to stay in and I have only good things to say about it. The location was superb, just two blocks back from the main street and the beach. There are views of Table Mountain and...

We spent four days to celebrate a friends birthday on different parties and venues in and around Cape Town. And what a bliss to come "home" to Sea Five. Very stylish, huge rooms, great staff, perfect location. Pricy yes but... We only have praise for this place.

This hotel is a gem. It is up the hill but nevertheless close to the beachfront and within easy reach of bars and restaurants. The staff are unobtrusively efficient and extremely polite. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts are a delight. The hotel is modern in design and full of artefacts. It is airy and open. We thoroughly enjoyed...

Can't fault this small hotel. Small but perfect. Breakfast fantastic, everything you could want. Short walk from the b each and fab restaurants. Tea/coffee with biscuits or cakes in the afternoon . Small but perfectly adequate pool area. You really do have luxury here and in a homely environment. Not cheap but worth it.
