Amazing Property / Sketchy Maid(s)
We stayed in the penthouse and the room/view was absolutely amazing. It's a beautiful property. BUT I made the mistake of leaving 3 of my credit cards in a semi-secret compartment of my suitcase one day while we were out. All 3 cards I left in the room that day now have had fraudulent transactions attempted on them. The head maid wasn't the nicest to us and made us a bit uncomfortable while we were checking in. Now knowing they went through my suitcase and copied my card info would most likely keep us from staying with them again.

Amazing view of the cape and away from tourist
Place has amazing view. Its away from v&a waterfront so its not for everyone. Our concern was the bedsheets and towels. There were stains on the sheets and towel were old and worn. The manager was able to address our conerns the next day.

Amazing boutique hotel in Camps Bay!
Wonderful stay at Houghton view. The place is absolutely stunning with an immaculate finish. Amazing views and also great amenities. There are only 5 rooms so most of the time it feels like you have the place to yourself which is fantastic. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

Nice views and not more
We stayed for 4 nights. As the property had such high review scores we expected a 5 star property. We had been staying at guest houses around cape town for the previous weeks and this was a disappointment relative to the other places we stayed such as Cape Cadogan. When we arrived our room was a disappointment. It was a Mountain View room which was really a main road view and was noisy from traffic and small. It was not as per the pictures. There was also no bottled water provided in the room throughout the stay which considering we can’t drink the tap water is unacceptable. Facilities like the ironing board and iron were poor quality and the towels and robes weren’t changed enough. There was no turn down service. The two managers running the place sat in the kitchen all day which is awkward for guests. There didn’t seem to be many staff around at all and those that were didn’t really speak or engage with guests. One morning there was no one at breakfast to take our orders. We also had to ask to have the pool opened as it was covered. The pool area was very small and could only comfortably fit 4 people despite the capacity of the place being 12 I estimate. One day we had to go to the beach and pay for beds as none were available at the pool. Overall a disappointing stay.
