Good location but the room needs TLC....old towels, replacement of light globes. Having to struggle with street parking, the extremely small shower and constant thumping of footsteps from the upper room made it an unpleasant experience.

Terrific Camps Bay stay in Cape Town!Posted Jul 20, 2016
Pros: I think the best part was that it is just 2 blocks form a selection of restaurants and cafes along the waterfront in which one is better than the next
Location: This place turned out to be the perfect staging place to plan and visit everywhere in and around Cape Town.
I had 8 days to spend in Cape Town and chose Beachside in Camps Bay as my stay. That choice turned out to be the best choice of my trip! An incredible place to stay in an incredible town. Wonderful people working at Beachside, so very helpful and willing to answer all of my questions. My room was named The Atlantic, and as a corner room had breathtaking view of of the Atlantic up the center of Camps Bay beach and of the 12 Apostles mountains. The room was clean and well kept and very comfortable. Sitting on my large balcony having morning coffee looking out over Camps Bay will be missed very much! Thank you to Gift and the rest of the staff at Beachside for making my stay a memory of a lifetime.

We really enjoyed our stay. Gift is very friendly and welcoming. The room was small but adequate but there was no air conditioning, which would have been a huge factor in summer. The only thing I didn't like was that there was no door on the bathroom. So although the lo tucked around the corner, one doesn't feel comfortable using the loo while someone else is in the room.

Good locationPosted Oct 15, 2014
Thought was a little expensive in relation to hotels previously stayed in during this trip along the garden route, but guess you paying to be near the city of Cape Town. Was clean and spacious, with a balcony - however the people staying in the room next door were unaware they were sitting on our part of the balcony i.e. outside our balcony door. Large shared kitchen and lounge (which were lovely) came as a surprise to me - I obviously did not read the room description adequately! And for that reason would not stay again - but other people could well be really happy with that kind of set up, but not for me. Overall good place to stay in Camps Bay and close to the bus stop for the red tour bus.

Great LocationPosted Jun 20, 2014 on Hotels
Just 2 blocks from the beach in a safe neighborhood. Friendly staff. Guests have use of a large kitchen and patio area. Some excellent restaurants/bars within walking distance.

Great hotel, but...Posted May 26, 2014 on Hotels
This was a great hotel, but it wasn't maintained so well. Five other friends and I took the 3 bedroom penthouse and were impressed with the room, the location and the view. But we had some issues with how the place was maintained. The door handle on the bathroom door of the master bedroom was broken and entirely fell off at the first pull, then the door wouldn't close. Aside from that, one of the rooms didn't have air conditioning, which wasn't mentioned before. Otherwise a great place.

Great location; Superb ViewPosted May 5, 2014
Pros: Location, view
Cons: Beginning to show age. Needs to be updated in order to justify top of the market pricing.
We stayed in the Beachside Penthouse Suite. The view was superb and the three bedrooms suited our family well. It's proximity to restaurants and the beach was also a huge plus. Beachside staff was helpful and available whenever we needed them. The property is starting to show some age and needs to be updated before it gets too far out of condition.
