This boutique hotel was beyond expectations. The staff are friendly and helpful, the beach is across the road and the view is to die for!!

This is our first time in Cape Town and we’re so happy we booked, easy access to the beach and the local restaurants/bars. The rooms are very nice and clean, and the staff helped us book multiple trips out and restaurant reservations (Thank you Andrew and team).

I’m currently sitting on the balcony, beer in hand and looking at the stars and listening to the waves. Such a great place.

Primi Castle is located right at the beach in Camps Bay, Capetown. Our rooms/apartments were facing the ocean, each with their own terrace/balcony with, in our case, a table and chairs and 2 sunbeds. If it gets too hot you can open the umbrella.
The room we had was spacious, well equipped and above all very clean. And, as an exception to the rule in South Africa, everything was in working condition and in one piece. We always bring some small tools with me, just in case, but we did not need them.
The fridge in the room and the little kitchenette were also a welcome feature.
The one thing I could not fix was the scheduled powercuts (called loadshedding) by the National Power company ESKOM. Although we have stayed at locations where they installed generators to cope with this, Primi Castle does not have one (yet), or only a small one for the office, because the WIFI kept working (our room was situated near the office). They do supply portable lights and also place them in the corridors. Being on holiday this was not a big deal for us. Made us appreciate the fact that at home there is always power.
Breakfast was served in the breakfastroom/bar/pool-deck and had plenty options to choose from.
But the best at Primi is the friendly staff. Especially Andrew and Gloria from the reception are great and make you feel welcome.
In short: we will definitely be staying there when visiting the Cape.

Room tip: Go for the rooms with sea view, worth it!

Camps Bay is also where people from Cape Town come for the nightlife and Cape Town’s celebrities hang out. We greatly enjoyed Camps Bay staying at Primi Seacastle - nice B&B close to the town and beach with comfy rooms and gorgeous views of the beach.

The whole establishment looked sloppy.
The room was not clean there where brown stuff on the wall. And the staff was looking bored and uninterested. The manager Michael has left and I assume with him the soul out of this establishment. As I can’t understand how otherwise this place would have got so good reviews. We actually packed our thing and went into another hotel as we were not willing to spend our last days in SA uncomfortable.

This was my second visit at Primi Seacastle.
It is a clean, calm and well organised establishment!
All the staff members are friendly and very helpful.
I want to point Michael out and compliment him.
It was yet again wonderful to see how he interacts with his guests, making sure everyone is happy and enjoying their stay!
He is truly the heart and soul of Primi Seacastle.

This was our first visit to South Africa and Camps Bay was our first stop on a 2 week vacation.

From the very start of our week stay at the Primi Seacastle was the warm and friendly welcome from Michael. This was a constant theme throughout our stay from Michael and the rest of the staff.

Our room was a junior suite with fantastic views to the beach and ocean. The room was exceptional and the standard of service was ideal.

we took breakfast on the balcony overlooking the beach each day. The choice of continental and cooked breakfast was really good and was a great relaxed way to start our day.

the primi seacastle is such a nice, warm, quirky hotel that i would recommend to anyone visiting Camps Bay and Cape Town.

Michael, thank you for your hospitality and making our stay in south africa such a wonderful experience.

Room tip: rooms to the front offer antastic views of camps bay and the beach
