A great gated hotel in an exclusive part of Cape Town, it's coastal location is spectacular with outstanding views. The rooms are modern and exceptionally clean, the surrounding gardens are beautiful. Breakfast is great, served by friendly, helpful staff, although the hotel does lack lunch and evening food service, nevertheless, there are numerous excellent restaurants nearby.

Super stay after safari holiday
We stayed at the hotel for three nights at the end of a safari holiday in Botswana. The room was spacious, comfortable and overlooked the sea. Breakfast was excellent with good choice and friendly staff. The location at Camps Bay was good as it was away from centre of Cape Town and with a hire car we were able to visit the Cape, Table mountain, Lions Head and the winelands very easily.

8/10 Very good

This is a beautiful location with an amazing garden and great ocean views. Staff are extremely friendly and the breakfasts were very enjoyable. This place really does feel like home! The only negative thing I have to say is that we had a couple of towels that were stained, but we were able to have them swapped out

Amazing Place to stay.
Ocean View House was an amazing place to stay on our recent trip to Cape Town. The staff were all so friendly and helpful, especially Supreme who helped us plan an incredible trip around the Cape with Gary our brilliant driver for the day. He showed us everything we wanted to see and more. Highlight of the trip for us. The rooms have the most amazing views and all of our requests were followed. All of the staff were so welcoming including Jeffra and Precious. Also many thanks to Lambert who helped me feed the fish! We will be back.
