We had an amazing two night stay at 61 Camps Bay. David and Nelson were absolutely delightful, helpful, friendly and so polite. The room was lovely and spacious with a great sea view. The bathroom was also really big with two sinks, double shower and bath tub. The large sliding doors lead onto a lovely balcony overlooking the sea and the pool below. David was kind enough to even lend us beach towels. It’s about a 15 minute walk to camps bay beach, a lovely, wide, sandy beach where you can find a whole range of shops, restaurants, chemists and a pick and pay. We had a lovely stay and will surely be back!

This guesthouse did nothing to lighten loadshedding, not even a rechargeable light in room. Road noise very bad. Good sea view. Some kind of divider will be good between verandah areas. Outside furniture needs to be replaced.

The rooms and bathroom were dirty with a funny smell. There is no aircon, only a noisy fan. The breakfast was stale. The sea view was barely a sea view. This was not value for money and if you are a female solo traveller I would not recommend booking here as there are foreign men running the guesthouse and no security and even if there is no real threat, your safety is always number one priority.

1. If you look at the website and the pictures, the place is pretty run down and slap-dash in reality. The pictures are about 10 years old maybe.
2. NO enclosed parking available.
3. The Pool is not welcoming, nor private.
4. Lock of room door and the sliding door is broken.
5. Balcony is shared, It is not private, this should have been advertised.
6. Bathroom and toilet have no window, only an extractor fan.
7. The amount of noise that affects the room, can hear everybody out the door. At the reception. The doorbell, the gate bell, the phones, the phone notifications.
8. Bar fridge in the room makes so much noise and is really loud.
9. The wifi is not great.
10. No generator if loadshedding.
11. Kettle was broken in another room.
12. Bed is hard, and springs are gone, not comfortable.
13. water to drink is only available from the tap.
14. Glasses are not replenished in room.
15. You can hear the neighbouring room talking or shower.
16. Contact numbers on page is not correct.
17. Front desk usually empty when you need help on a concern.
18. Towels do not get replenished.
19. There was no luggage stool to place luggage bag, have to put it on floor or bed.
20. Got cold tea for breakfast, loadshedding.
21. Got bad milk for breakfast.
22. Breakfast area quite dusty with wilted flowers.
23. Due to the extractor, there is always a damp smell in the room.
24. Agoda customer service is OF NO HELP AT ALL and do not understand English.
25. Misleading communication of the accommodation advert, beware.

A lovely place with great staff.
The rooms are very large with a very large ensuite. We had room 3 which looked onto the ocean with amazing sunset views
Breakfast was plentiful
Location..approx 15 minutes walk to beach and restaurants..may take longer on return up the hill
Comfortable beds
Hot water for shower
All together a great start to our stay in SA.

Rooms were very nice and the staff were great. Breakfast was also good. Only negative was the pool was a little small and grubby - nobody in the hotel used it once whilst we were there. Saying that, the beach is barely a 5 min walk so wasn't a big deal.

The guesthouse has a great and quiet location in Cape Town. The small pool is in need of some renovation though
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast small but nice always with freshly baked muffins. We had a very good time.
