Come guys - you are great hosts but that doesn't always cut it. Room was tiny and hot hot hot - no aircon with the teeny tiniest fan in 36 deg heat.

Hout Bay View was a very comfortable stay to end our holiday in South Africa. Brian and Andrew were very pleasant hosts, full of humour and only too willing to help wherever possible, including printing our boarding cards for us as we wished to check-in our flight online.

Advertised as the "View with a room" yet no one tells you that there is no view from the room or any windows or aircon or even space for that matter.

No widows or air conditioners in the rooms, No soap dish in the shower. No off street parking. Had to request the washing of cutlery at breakfast. If you have a disability then this place is not recommended due to the numerous steps to reach the rooms. Will definitely not stay here again or recommend to anyone.

My room was a standard room because, as I was told, it had a queen size bed. The fact that the bed only just fit in the room was irrespective, the bed size determined the quality.
