Conveniently located near everything but far away enough from the main road not to be disturbed. Great breakfast, lovely pool, excellent rooms and lovely helpful staff. What more could you need? You just can't fault this boutique hotel.

We stayed here in October as a family (teenage children) & had the penthouse suite. We could not have asked for a better base to explore Cape Town. It is a beautifully decorated hotel (very small) and excellent helpful staff who couldn't do enough to help us. The 2 bedroom penthouse suite is huge - gorgeous views from the wraparound... More

Stayed here for a week. Liked the fact it only had 7 suites so not full of noisy crowds. Easy stroll to Camps Bay restaurants. Fab views to the 12 Apostles, Lions head and the ocean. Breakfast was fantastic will many options. Ocean suite & bathroom was large & spacious.

From the warm welcome we received on arrival, our whole experience staying at Seafive was a delight. The staff are exceptional, going out of their way to ensure your comfort and satisfaction, and always asking if there was anything else they could do.

The staff have been a delight from the moment we arrived. The room was immaculate and very unique. The view of table mountain and the sea combined has been breath taking from the balcony! The rooms are huge and have been carefully placed with the essentials and many homely features to keep you relaxed
