Wonderful experience. Especially Dawn, the manager, is excellent! Nothing is too much to ask and she pampers and spoils the guests. The breakfast is a feast you like to wake up to! (We miss it already...). Our room was the mountain view room, but we liked it since it is very quiet at the back of the house. (No traffic...

This was our second visit to 51 on Camps Bay and we will definitely be visiting again. The accommodation is fantastic, large rooms, some with sea views and everything supplied that you would need during your stay. The hosts are very welcoming and offer any advice that you might need when planning day trips or choosing a restaurant. The location...

The best B&B we have ever stayed in. Beautiful accommodation with sea views, lovely breakfasts, and helpful but unobtrusive hosts - we felt very well looked after - thank-you! Location is excellent, within walking distance of several really nice restaurants and the beachfront.

My wife and I stayed here for her birthday in January 2013 and it was a great romantic getaway for us. We live in Cape Town, but it still felt like we were far from home while we were staying here. Meryl is a wonderful host and was very accommodating - even with a personal request of mine to make...

Having read reviews on this guest house prior to arrival we knew it was going to be great, however our expectations were far exceeded. Dawn and her staff were absolutely amazing, making our stay very personable and comforting. With great attention to detail and 5* touches, the hospitality will be very memorable. The room had an excellent sea view, outstanding...

What a great place to stay in Camps Bay! Dawn knows her stuff and is like a concierge. I did not see the other rooms but our room had an amazing view, was luxury, and felt like a top boutique hotel. This is amazing value for camps bay and walking distance to Cod Father. We are early 30's couple that...

My wife and I were well received by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. We chose the deluxe suite with the sea view and were not disappointed. This suite spoils you with all the creature comforts, views of Camps Bay below and the ocean beyond. It is located in a quiet part of the establishment with a private balcony so we...
