We stayed at Hout Bay View for a night, and the place is beautifully maintained. One can get a wonderful view during sunset/sunrise from the balcony and breakfast was served to order too. However, we can't help but think that the rates have been slightly overpriced, as the rooms were rather basic (no open windows, shower amenities or air-conditioning).

Did not spend long here but glad I did not miss it. It's smells and looks like an authentic fishing village well known for its... More

Our private taxi was arranged by Andrew and Bryan, it was a great start with no hanging around and a lovely talk of all the places we drove through.

I highly recommend this gem in the heart of Hout Bay. Beautifully appointed, spacious rooms with tea & coffee, extremely comfortable beds, clean linen and fresh towels.

Misrepresented online - no pictures of the room we were given. Sub-standard room even though it was called a 'Standard' room. Hardly enough room to walk around the bed. Cheap melamine cupboard that could barely fit one persons clothes in for a couple of days. Clothes cupboard contains a bar fridge as well as coffee/tea tray so even less space!... More

I had the pleasure of staying here for a few days. Upon arrival you are warmly greeted and immediately made to feel relaxed and welcomed.
