Poor 2,0
No privacy and overpriced
Worst experience ever! Hereby I would document my experience to help others make the right decision. We checked-in in November to a well paid room (150 Euro per night) which should have Ocean view and private beds in a private balcony. What we got was far below the spent money and the provided description. The room was located on ground floor with a view to a common area with several beds (check the attached images). The common area was next to the pool and next to the breakfast area. So technically unless you want that everyone passing in front of your room see what you are wearing and what you are doing the curtain shall be closed. The beds were public and the common area is open for anyone who was in the hotel. Obviously this also had the noise problem and we had no chance to have an afternoon nap or a longer sleep in the Morning (after 7:00 am when breakfast is served). Moreover the bathroom was looking to the same common area and had strange window with glass that are completely transparent at borders. Anyone passing by can take a look inside the bathroom. The attached images are captured in the room to show the mentioned problems. Talking with the management also didn't solve the problems as according to them it was the Holiday season and they have no other room. In general poor management with unprofessional behaviour and very bad experience.

Beautiful guesthouse by the sea
Service was good, housekeeping was impeccable while discreet at the same time which I loved. Beautiful location by the sea but far from the city center. The room was good, comfortable with good facilities. Very nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean. Highly recommended if you want to stay in Camps Bay.
