We stayed here for a week. The owners Trevor and June are so welcoming and friendly. They will book you into restaurants and advise on places to visit. Ideally situated for exploring this part of the Cape. Just what we needed at the end of our hectic trip.

Stayed for 3 nights in the Victorian Room. We had a relaxing and comfortable stay. We were met by Trevor and Max the dog - who operated the electronic gates as we approached - he had spied our arrival. June fixed us a cold drink which we needed as it was very hot! Then Trevor helped us to our room with the luggage and arranged for a table at a local Italian restaurant in Hout Bay. Welcome complete. The room was bright, bed comfy and ample storage for our bags. But the best has to be the view from our balcony - Hout Bay sparkled! Breakfasts were enjoyable and cooked to order. Hosts were attentive, helpful but respected our privacy. Their home is beautiful.
Beware if you have issues with steep inclines - the approach through the electronic gate is very steep as is the path to the front door - but parking is easy and we had no problem operating the gate.
We have visited Cape Town before - Hout Bay is a very good choice if you want lots of eating places close by and local craft market is a good way to while away a couple of hours. We spent a fantastic day out with The Fynbos Guy - a local chap who took us birdwatching and on a lovely walk explaining the fynbos. Kirstenbosch Gardens are close by and again worth a visit. Chapman Peak Drive great for more fantastic views! Can recommend you stay at Amblewood.

Room Tip: Victorian as we wanted a private balcony! My guess is they are all great. Our room was as stated on website.

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.
