Beautiful setting, excellent staff and venue.
The guest house is located about 5 minutes walk from the main strip, with coffee shops, bars and restaurants of Camps Bay/Bakoven within 5-10 mins walk. The setting is stunning with The Apostles just behind the guest house and the sea view in front. The owners and the staff are all friendly and welcoming, with a well stocked "honesty bar", and a buffet breakfast with freshly cooked choices of additional menu items. Camps Bay itself has possibly the best fish restaurant I've ever been to (The Codfather) and a good mix of bars and restaurants, plus a small shopping mall. I stayed in the centre of Cape Town for most of my stay in the area, but enjoyed the couple of days in Camps Bay immensely, and the guest house was an integral part of that.

Honeymoon in Cape Town
My wife and I stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our honeymoon in Cape Town. This hotel was amazing. The room in absolutely incredible. The balcony in enormous with a nice hot tub on it and the view is stunning. The service here is first class. We had a late flight in and they had no problem accommodating a late check in for us. We loved the honor bar and the breakfast was excellent. Next time we are in Cape Town we will be staying here again in the same room.

The Best!!
Checked out yesterday and this is certainly one of the best places that I have ever stayed in which is saying something as I am on the road around 50% of my time. A very warm welcome from the property manager Calvin so thank you for that. All the staff were so pleasant, immaculately dressed and highly engaging. My room was outstanding with one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. Rooms are huge and very well appointed with all the amenities you would expect of a 5 star hotel anywhere in the world. There are plenty of seating areas dotted around so perfect for business travellers and holidaymakers alike. Breakfast didn't disappoint and I didn't make full use of it because my appetite was beaten! However, the range of food and breakfast was quite incredible and the quality, simply outstanding. Security-there is an individual up and over garage for each resident's are anyone worried about this issue needn't. I was very impressed with the security on the property. As for the location, elevated views right over Camps Bay from where you can see the most incredible sunsets and have a glass of wine (trust bar) at your leisure. I would have no hesitation of recommending this place to all of my friends and will certainly endeavour to stay here again next time I am in Cape Town. I hope my photographs do this some justice I would like to close by thanking all of the staff for making me incredibly welcome and looking after me during my stay. Thank you

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!
