My wife and I booked 6 nights at Amblewood in order to see the Cape Town area, at the start of our recent holiday - we couldn't have made a better choice. In fact, our only regret is that we didn't book the last 6 nights there at the same time!
Everything about this place is spot on - accommodation, food, stunning views, proximity to Hout Bay and it is very obvious that guests' comfort and enjoyment really matter to hosts Trevor and June who were delightful to stay with. Oh, and of course Max the dog!
I'm sure many guests return here time and time again, and we shall be joining them. Thank you both, and your staff, for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Upper rooms have private balconies so sitting out is more private. All have great views.

This is situated in a secure and quiet hillside location overlooking Hout Bay. The fantastic views over the bay would sell the place on their own, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable too. I stayed in a small room opening onto the deck , this was more basic compared to the upper floor rooms, but good value for money. The owners Trevor and June go out of their way to help in providing a personal service for guests. Many of the guests were repeat visits, and I am certain my wife and I shall visit again in the future.

I loved this adorable bed and breakfast, and we will definitely come back next year. The house owners June and Trevor are very friendly, the breakfast is perfect, everything is perfectly clean, the view is unbelievable and the house has a very nice "spirit" and personality. I felt very well during our one week stay. Very recommendable!

We stayed at Amblewood for 6 nights and Trevor & June could not have been more obliging hosts. We had the Inglenook room which had a very private balcony. The breakfasts were as good as you would get in any 4 star hotel and we had superb views. What more could you want. They also have a lovely swimming pool and a very friendly dog called Max. They even printed off our boarding cards for us when we moved on. Now that is service!

Would we return - quite simply in the blink of an eye. Thank you Trevor and June for an absolutely wonderful stay. Your friendliness is wonderful, the breakfast so tasty (watch out if we do return as Clive will want 3 sausages! :) ) and our room just perfect (loft room). Little details have been thought of which we so appreciated, candles along with matches to light them, plates with knives and forks to be able to enjoy some cheeses or such like, hospitality bar if needed and of course Max, the most adorable doggy we've yet to meet.
We wish we were back with you and not in the dreary cold UK.
Hope to see you again in future, meanwhile heartfelt thanks for a superb stay.
Debbie and Clive

Room Tip: All look to be good, from a personal perspective to have an upper room with a deck makes the views even more spectacular.

Wow! What can we say about all that praise? Thank you seems so inadequate but thank you anyway! We're so glad that you enjoyed yourselves and we would love to welcome you back anytime. PS Max says woof, woof (hi).
