the Gueshouse is located at Sea Point, high enough up the hill to have a good view, but close enough to walk to many restaurants and shops in main street. The rooms are decorated very nicely, every room is different with African Art and a lot of attention to details, very special. The bathroom was stunning with huge walk in...

We stayed at the Ocean View Guesthouse for three nights. It is a lovely quiet place to relax after a busy day in Capetown. For us a good way to start our trip in South Africa. Just one 'downside'. The booked-in-advance- Airport-transfer wasn't there to pick us up. After a long flight not exactly ideal, because we had to wait...

Dissapointing. Great place, but poor service! Although we love this location, and this was our second time at this property, we will be going elsewhere next time. The decor of the place is amazing, but it really is let down by the lack of customer care.
