Our experience was wonderful! Corey (sp?) really made every effort to make sure we felt at home the entire time. The room was spacious and comfortable and the bathroom was huge and modern. The location is fantastic, the downhill walk only about 4-6 minutes from the main strip (the walk back is uphill). The breakfast was awesome and the pool... More

My experience was amazing! The place is incredibly clean, very well located ( it's uphill so elderly people be aware), walking distance to the beach and the Main Street. The customer service provided by Cori (not sure I'm spelling his name properly) has just excedeed the expectations. Awesome view with a nice swimming pool and great breakfast. I totally refer...

This was our third trip to CT and despite the fact that it was nearly 4 years since our first stay at 51 on Camps Bay we were treated like the prodigal sons by Corrie and Merryl. They could not do enough for us in terms if booking, arranging or advising on what to do and where to go. The... More

We have only stayed one night in this B&B, but had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It really feels like a home away from home however in quite a very special location. We had the bedroom with shared balcony, overlooking the ocean. Its a very good sized room, furnished to a very high standard together with the open plan en suite.... More

51 has to be one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. We arrived straight from a 12 hour flight and the manager, Corrie, immediately made us feel at home. He took us to our room, which was massive and had spectacular ocean views. It was absolute luxury - with a huge (and comfortable) king sized bed and a double... More

Fantastic location - walking distance to beach, popular restaurants and the Hop-on Hop-off Bus service. On suite rooms are spacious & luxurious with fantastic views of either the ocean or mountains. Breakfast is of the highest quality. Both Corrie and Merryl were tremendously warm, thoughtful and the service first class. Would highly recommend 51 on Camps Bay if you visit!

51 on Camps Bay is a lovely and convenient place to stay. The view is spectacular, the room spacious and welcoming, with sweet touches, like lavender on your washcloth and pillow, the location is great for visiting beach and restaurants, and the owner and manager could not have been more helpful. We were warmly welcomed by Corrie, and then Merryl,... More

Located just a short walk from the beach, many great restaurants / bars and a hop-on bus stop, this B&B made for a perfect base during our stay in Cape Town.

After a 4 day safari in Kruger and 4 days in Zambia, 51 on Camps Bay is just what we needed. Cape Town itself is one of the most amazing places. Great food, wine, people and scenery. 51 on Camps Bay did not disappoint. We arrived and were immediately welcomed by the B&B owner Merryl. She was so accommodating and... More
