    Nice view on the Bay. Close distance to restaurants and shops. Very close to table mountain and Lions's Head. Very good service, great support with table booking at Restaurants and tickets for table mountain. The carpets would need some renovation.

    Balfour is spacious, welcoming and very comfortable. The views are breathtaking. The staff warm and accommodating. We feel very fortunate to have found this guest house. If steps are not a problem it is THE place to stay.

    Hello Aashish, I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us :) And your wife's birthday. Camps Bay should get some vegan or veggie restaurants though. Perhaps there is a business opportunity. Kind Regards and safe travels Dominique and Balfour team
