Customer service above expected
I had an amazing experience at Houghton view. Wayne the manager was more than helpful in every situation. He went beyond the expected to accommodate us. I highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! If you can afford the penthouse, splurge. By USA standards - it is very cheap and worth every penny. Beautiful! The service was impeccable. Loved it!

Amazing boutique hotel in Camps Bay!
Wonderful stay at Houghton view. The place is absolutely stunning with an immaculate finish. Amazing views and also great amenities. There are only 5 rooms so most of the time it feels like you have the place to yourself which is fantastic. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

Nice views and not more
We stayed for 4 nights. As the property had such high review scores we expected a 5 star property. We had been staying at guest houses around cape town for the previous weeks and this was a disappointment relative to the other places we stayed such as Cape Cadogan. When we arrived our room was a disappointment. It was a Mountain View room which was really a main road view and was noisy from traffic and small. It was not as per the pictures. There was also no bottled water provided in the room throughout the stay which considering we can’t drink the tap water is unacceptable. Facilities like the ironing board and iron were poor quality and the towels and robes weren’t changed enough. There was no turn down service. The two managers running the place sat in the kitchen all day which is awkward for guests. There didn’t seem to be many staff around at all and those that were didn’t really speak or engage with guests. One morning there was no one at breakfast to take our orders. We also had to ask to have the pool opened as it was covered. The pool area was very small and could only comfortably fit 4 people despite the capacity of the place being 12 I estimate. One day we had to go to the beach and pay for beds as none were available at the pool. Overall a disappointing stay.

Must stay luxury penthouse in Camps Bay
This hotel far exceeded my expectations!! Wow!!! If you can book the penthouse unit. You need to see it to believe it. MASSIVE rooftop; 2 decks; unobstructed views of the ocean. The house itself is stunning,modern design, great breakfast room with fresh meal cooked for you. The penthouse room has a gorgeous bedroom and living room. Views of the ocean while lying in bed. Stunning bathroom with glasssa shower wall that opens for indoor/outdoor shower. Wayne and max were great. Location was great, short walk to the beach and tons of restaurants and bars and table Mountain/ lions head 15 min away. Seriously 10/10 this place is stunning!
