We stayed in the "Deck Suite" - a spacious, light room by the pool with the amazing view of Hout Bay in the background. Trevor and June couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating and the breakfasts were as good as ever. Highly recommended.

About
Description
For those visitors looking for the unusual, the warm and the welcoming in bed and breakfasts look no further than Amblewood Guest House. This bed and breakfast offers traditional hospitality and charm. ...More Surrounded by mountains and with a profusion of mature trees and shrubs, Amblewood is a tranquil escape from one's day-to-day routine. Owners, Trevor and June, live on the property and are therefore always on hand. Amblewood’s charm and sense of spaciousness are perfectly blended with a homely, comfortable atmosphere. ALL rooms have unique views of the ocean, Hout Bay harbour, beach and the Sentinel Mountain. Each room is styled in a quirky, original or personal style, which seeks to avoid the box-like, mass-produced feel of the hotel chain. The rooms invite one to come in, relax, put your feet up and sleep well. The emphasis at Amblewood is on relaxation. Less
