I booked Ocean View House after I decided on a last minute Easter weekend trip to Cape Town. My young son chose the hotel online after the main hotel we had planned to stay in was fully booked. He said he just had "a good feeling about the place" and that it "looked like the owner really loved it". I...

Room was spacious. Service was superb. Guys really made the wife and my 2 kids feel extremely welcome. Turn down service great, and the fact my boys could feed the fish each day and Lawrence handed responsibility for feeding them to my boy for the week - was class. Rooms clean. Breakfast was yummy. Nothing more to say but THANKS....

After reading many positive reviews of OVH my husband and I were eagerly looking forward to our stay - we were not disappointed! The hotel exudes style, service and super staff. The breakfast area is bright and relaxed with candles flickering between the plentiful fruits, cheeses and cold meats. A cheerful chef cooks your breakfast to order as you relax...

Stayed here for a week before heading up the garden route. Rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Staff were more than helpful. Situated about 15 mins walk out of Camps Bay but safe to walk to at night. The Hop on bus can be caught from just besides the Camp Bay Hotel which is handy. Ideally situated to head...
