We immediately Felt at home at the Sweet Ocean View Guest House. Everybody was extremely friendly and helpful. I really loved the setting. Stunning decor, and one of the best pool areas my husband and i ever encountered!

We arrived and I fell in love with the decor and homely feel. It was spotlessly clean and security was good too. Unfortunately didnt get to sample the breakfast as was up and out before it was served. Air-con would have been great but still very happy with this accommodation.

Great service, convenient and very comfortable. Our family really enjoyed staying there and we would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting to stay in sea point. The staff went out of their way to provide good service.

We stayed here for two nights and was not pleasant. They charge for internet, do not have a good breakfast (reuse yesterdays food), very small rooms and bath rooms, shared TV. There check-in and check-out times are rigid.

Room was clean and looking good. Our room had no view on the Ocean and some noise in the morning of the people eating the breakfast. Great breakfast though and nice people. Location 200 meters up the Hill. Hottub could only be used with 8 hours notice in advance. Overall good stay.

We spent a wonderful week at the Sweet Ocean View Guest House in Sea Point in December. The guest house is charming, and the staff (Memory, Bobby, Belinda and Paula) added to the charm! We had the two upstairs rooms for our family, and they were both comfortable and spacious. They adjoined a (public) sitting area, kitchenette and patio which...

Such a nice guesthouse! We had our own little 'house', very much room and nicely decorated. The breakfasts were very good, and the staff was friendly! When we arrived at 6 pm, the gate was closed, and we had to call someone to come and open, and check us in. Waited a couple of minutes. After all; Worth every penny!

I made a booking through a booking system thinking I would be staying at Sweet Ocean View Guesthouse but upon arrival I was directed to a house across the road from Sweet Ocean View. I checked in around 5.00pm and although two ladies were there they could not check me in as the Supervisor was not there, I had to...
