As all reviews state the location is superb with rooms overlooking the sea and extremely well kept gardens. We had a garden room with outside area in New building. Very minimalist and modern but could have done with a second comfortable chair and adequate crockery for two. The walls have evidence of damp particularly in the bathroom which spoils the...

Although the views are breathtaking, the customer service is far beyond average. We stayed in the Panoramic Apartment - we payed a lot of money and expected great service, however, the toilet was broken; the shower handle was broken; the jacuzzi was not in working order ( the jacuzzi being the reason we went) and when all these faults were...

Ocean View House has a fantastic location overlooking the ocean with the majestic twelve apostles behind you and a tranquil stream running next to you. Within a few minutes drive from all the restaurants in the town center. They serve an amazing breakfast. Very clean.

High spec and well managed small hotel with superb views of both mountains and the the bay. Staff were great and the breakfast was excellent. We would definitely return to stay when next in CT. Nice to be within a mile of Camps Bay restaurants & bars, but quieter with amazing views
