Spent 3 nights in your beautiful Guesthouse with my husband. All the staff were wonderful. Our room was so clean and spacious. Fabulous view from the balcony. It was very close to sea front and restaurants. We would highly recommend it.

Thanks Balfour for a lovely three nights stay-over. Apart from the fact that you're situated ideally on the western side of the peninsula close to Clifton Beach, Llundudno, Houtbay and Chapman's Peak. The fact that one can access so many of Cape Towns attractions such as Lions Head, Signal Hill, the Cable Way and the inner city with its multiple...

We really enjoyed our stay at Balfour Place Guesthouse. From our room on the 1st floor we had a great view on Camps Bay beach which is only 5 minutes walking away. Also the breakfast was great - eggs were freshly prepared by the friendly staff.
