We loved our stay. Our room had a gorgeous sea view with a balcony that we used to watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. Room and breakfast area were clean and tidy The staff were friendly, polite and willing to help at anytime. Our late check-in was no hassle and we were greeted warmly the staff. COVID-19 protocols were adhered to with temperature screening, screening forms and sanitation. We had a wide range of breakfast choices to choose from. . We look forward to returning.

We had a great stay at Finchley Guest House. They were very kind in allowing us a late check-in when our flight was delayed and landed late in Cape Town. Our room was just as we expected. Breakfast was excellent. Location was fantastic with beautiful views and an easy walk to the beach. A great welcome to Cape Town.

I stayed at Finchley Guesthouse and I totally enjoyed the experience! The Oceanview rooms were worth it during Sunrise, Sunset and throughput the day.
The staff was better than great! Everyone was friendly, helpful and professional!
The big dinning table was wonderful if you were in a group. Breakfast was made to order and on point!
There were provisions for load shedding so you were never left in the dark.
The location was on premium Real Estate… I love Camps Bay.

I will highly recommend!!!

It feels a lot like how home should be; welcoming and comforting. The staff is really helpful, the location is superb, being only a drive away from Camps Bay with stunning ocean and mountain views. Just an all-round good experience.

This was a lovely bed and breakfast. It is located in a very nice area of Camps Bay only a 10 minute walk from the beach, restaurant and shops. If you don't want to walk taxi's we're very cheap. The room we had was gorgeous, ground floor with the pool right outside and an amazing view. The staff were lovely so helpful and polite, nothing was a problem. Great breakfast. I loved this guesthouse and would definitely recommend a visit

Finchley Guesthouse is a lovely, welcoming and comfortable place to stay. The staff were really friendly and helpful (especially about things to do), the location is ideal, being only a quick drive from the promenade. We had a beautiful ocean and mountain view from our room. Overall, it was a lovely experience.

The location is really good, the view from the balcony is amazing, the size of the room is good, staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast is good, too.

There were only a little things to criticize. The safe was really small, the bathroom could use little repairs and the windows aren't properly sealed/compact - wind is coming through. So it's very loud when it's very windy and we could imagine that it could be cold in winter.

But we would definitely stay there again!
