Amblewood is set at the top of the red which gives it amazing views across the bay. It’s a place that does it right but misses something. I think it’s something around the energy or warmth. This is a little undefinable but there is something...More

I have taken a long time to reply as I find your comments confusing and contradictory. Almost every other TripAdvisor comment compliments June and I on our warmth, hospitality and personal attention. After owning and running Amblewood for 16 years, we have come to realise...More

Response from Trevor K, Owner at Amblewood Guest HouseResponded 18 September 2017

Thank you for your great review and we hope to see you again soon! Hout Bay is very much in the centre of most attractions and therefore a great base. We hope we add the cherry on top that makes it 'home from home'.
