It is very accessible from the airport and close to the Table Mountain cable car. Also easy access to the... More

We spent three nights at Ocean View House in early July of 2016. We were very impressed with the professional service that we were given, as well as the delicious food that was provided at breakfast every morning.

We were contacted by the establishment to advise us that we would have to change rooms during our stay, which was not acceptable.

My partner and I were guests in the Panorama suite (room 18) for 4 nights. Impeccable, friendly reception and service. Stunning sunset views and were even fortunate enough to spot some whale action from our deck! I would like to personally commend all the staff for making our stay so special. I give Oceanview guesthouse my highest recommendation
