The breakfasts were great and the Hostess was very knowledgable about good restaurants and spas in the...

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...

She gave us really good recommendations about where to go and what to do in Cape town. For the last 2 nights of our trip we came...

We finished off our 3 week South African trip in Cape Town and stayed at 51 for the last few nights. Agree with all the other comments, the location is great, and the service really was good.

I recently stayed at 51 on Camps Bay with my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. It is a boutique B&B with fantastic rooms, amazing views of the sea and mountains, great breakfasts and lovely hosts. Merryl was incredibly helpful in providing restaurant recommendations (would def try The Codfather and Hussars) and all round tips. Highly recommend.
