it is okPosted Jun 10, 2012 on Hotels.com
The house is nice, but it is not a hotel. You need to bring your own laptop and phone to be able to have access to the outsise world. You are pretty much on your own. I will not go back there. It will be a nice place if you bring your whole family and friends with you, so you can have the whole house to yourself.

Beachside Camps BayPosted Mar 5, 2012
Pros: The attentiveness of the staff. Convenience for Capetown without being in the city. Proximity to the beach.
Cons: Shared bedroom terrace
Location: Superb position overlooking Camps Bay, Table Mountain and the Lion's Head.
Beachside appears to be a private villa which has been converted to use as a self catering guest house. Whilst in a superb position with an excellent staff the accommodation has some drawbacks. The bedroom which we were allocated opened onto a terrace shared by other rooms. The adjacent room had patio doors at right angles to ours and had an open plan bathroom. This effectively meant we could step onto the terrace as someone in the next room was in the shower on full view. Potentially embarrassing! The manager and his staff were superb and were incredibly helpful in all aspects of our visit. The lounge,pool and communal facilities were excellent. Parking was good in an area difficult for parking.

Beachside - A fantastic place to stay!Posted Sep 29, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed 2 nights at Beachside and completely fell in love with the place. It's more then just a room it's a whole house that you can utilize! They have a kitchen, a garden, a pool and TV/living room/dining room areas you have full access to, and all of this just a few blocks from the beach and fantastic restaurants. In addition it's very close to downtown Cape Town (10 minutes drive). Only downside was the surrounding work that was going on on neighboring houses. Kind of loud during normal business hours.

Near the water, with very helpful managementPosted Jul 10, 2011 on Hotels.com
We stayed a week in July 2011, in the Atlantic Ocean suite. The view is very nice -- not 180 degrees, but plenty of beach and mountain. Room was cleaned well every day. The construction next door, referenced by another review, seems finished on the outside, and the inside work going on now did not disturb us. However, beware the Penthouse above, and make sure no one intends any late parties there (we had to complain one night, but management took care of it immediately). Location is very convenient (walking distance to the quai) to excellent restaurants, a breakfast place, and a hotel with a very good spa service. Bathroom large but not well designed. Lots of closet space. Three people slept comfortably, one on a fold-out sofa bed. The shared common area is well fitted out and extremely spacious. Large living room with gas fireplace, comfortable furniture; two separate dining areas; smallish pool with barbeque area; very nice sized and reasonably equipped kitchen. We were able to cook meals without any problems. Best feature, however, is the manager, Robert, who could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Overall, the website may make it look more luxurious than it is, but it's a good value. We will definitely return.

Beachside, Camps Bay - like your own flatPosted Jan 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
Beachside is more a self-contained apartment than a hotel. It's self catering, with decent standard of rooms situated a couple streets back from the main street in Camps Bay. A good value option with a lot of privacy and good location.

ExceptionalPosted Dec 18, 2010 on Hotels.com
The hotel staff could not have done more for me. They went above and beyond in every respect. I won't go into everything they did for me in case others then expect similar but I could not be more grateful. The hotel was also exceptional. Excellent quality, excellent occasion. I know where I will be staying next time I am in Cape Town! Many thanks again.
