The Amblewood is a beautiful place with a stunning view. We had a big, beautifully decorated room with a lovely balcony. Breakfasts are big and very tasty. Trevor and June are very helpful and nice hosts. If you do not have a car you can walk down to town even if is a bit sweaty going back upphill. However, it may not be advisable to do it after dark. A great and friendly B&B!

Trevor and June greet you like old friends upon arrival and do everything possible to make sure your stay meets all of your needs. The rooms are charming, clean and comfortable, the breakfasts are delicious and the view of the harbor is stunning. Some of the rooms have balconies, which are great features. Great value as well.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony for great views.

Great place to stay with fantastic views.
This was the 6th stay with Trevor and June.
Very quiet area - nice and relaxing.
All rooms are lovely.
A great breakfast served outside if the weather is nice.
Lovely to meet Max - the friendly 4 legged friend.
See you next year .

It's like stepping back in time when you go to Amblewood. Trevor & June do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you have an upstairs room, like we did, you get magnificent views of Hout Bay. There is an extensive library of books & four sunbeds to relax on during the day. Breakfast prepared individually as you want it. A lovely place to stay, fridge to put your beer & wine in what more do you need! If you live your life at 100 mph this might not be the place for you. If you want relaxing break with attentive hosts then go to Amblewood.

From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warmth and felt relaxed. The view is stunning and Trevor and June could not have been nicer or friendlier. The rooms were very pretty and well appointed next to the pool and gorgeous view of the Hout Bay beach and harbour. The room was very clean with nice touches including fresh flowers. It is so easy to get it wrong but also so easy to "get it right" They have "got it right" at Amblewood. Delicious breakfasts served on the pool deck overlooking Hout Bay, everything was very fresh and cooked and served personally by Trevor and June. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back for more!

Room Tip: Upstairs a bit more spacious and even better views!
