Beautiful setting, nice clean and spacious rooms. Staff helpful and friendly. The hot tub on the Atlantic room's balcony was a huge treat. Property just need a bit of attention, but we all know it was difficult during lockdown.

Dear Melanie, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I am delighted to see that you fully enjoyed your stay. Can I kindly ask you to please get in touch with me at manager@houghtonview.com so we can discuss where you feel that property needs attention. I am a bit surprised by the comment as the property where closed for Maintenance during the 1st two weeks of April 2021. We repainted the entire interior, replaced the deck in the Penthouse, service all our sliding doors, did a major service on all our AC's, these are all just to name a few of the items we have completed a week ago, so your comments are concerning and I would really love to discuss there with you. Thank you so much. Calvin

Worth mentioning I did not know about the place until the morning I booked. I did not know what to expect. Houghton View exceeded expectations! The view of Camps bay beach and The mountains is superb! Truly lived up to the pictures. The room and facilities and spacious and modern, with beautiful finishes and touches. The jacuzzi iutside my room was a cherry on top! In addition, the staff was very kind and helpful. Everything worked! I highly recommend booking, whether solo, couple or business, this place will cater for you.

I had an opportunity to stay in the guest house in the Atlantic room. What an amazing experience. The room was well appointed with ocean views from the bedroom, shower and even the bath. It was also very private far from the other rooms on the floor. All the staff were very friendly and the management made the book in process very easy. Breakfast was great with allot of choice. will definitely recommend this guest house to friends and family.

The Houghton View Boutique Hotel is what it promises to be: a wonderful place -with breathtaking views (if you book the Ocen View room), quiet almost private atmosphere and a high class furnishing. Enjoyed every of my four days there and come back soon hopefully. Thanks to Calvin and his staff making my stay unforgettable.
