We had a warm welcome and a lovely (but short) 2 night stay at Dreamhouse Guest House. The setting was quiet and tranquil with lovely gardens and surrounds and views of the sea. We particularly enjoyed the breakfasts, crisp white table linen and glorious fruit salads and yoghurt and juices as well as meat and cheese platters and plentiful bread... More

First timers to South Africa and the standard of accommodation always amazed us once we got used to seeing Armed response Security, electric fences and infra red beams! The Dreamhouse was above what we had been expecting having come from the Waterfront in Cape Town which we also enjoyed.. We were upgraded on arrival to a room with a view... More

I have got to give them praise for their amazing spread they provided at breakfast - was that much and more! Loved it. The staff were really welcoming and friendly. The pool area was lovely to relax around. BUT We had a room sort of at the back of the house (not sure of the name of the room) but... More

The Dreamhouse has an indisputable great view of the city. The sparkling pool was irresistible. We found the backyard garden to be so peaceful and relaxing. We particularly liked the meticulous service and presentation provided at breakfast by the staff. We found the daily evening weather forecast and chocolate candies to be a sweet touch. However, we were disappointed about... More

Superb quiet location just 20 minutes from Cape Town. Our accommodation was very comfortable with great views of Hout Bay and beyond. The breakfast was excellent and well presented in a comfortable dining space either on the patio or inside both with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

Overpriced. The most expensive stay during our 3 weeks trip in SA and not the best at all. Far from CT and Hout Bay. Had to park in the street. Got a so-called "secluded herb garden" but was asked to let the light at night for other customers... The room was tiny and dark. Kingbed consist in 2 single bed... More

Very comfortable and good attention to detail. Staff very helpful and informative. Our room had the bathroom as part of it which was a bit different and the view from the bath was spectacular! The gardens below the house were lovely and the caged birds added some interest. Being set high up above Hout Bay gives the most wonderful views.... More
