We had a great stay for two nights. Liked the interior beach style. Great service, rooms great when ocean view, some rooms have no view. Located in second row close to beach and bars. Great - car park. Very good breakfast and good wine selection.

My husband and I visited Sea Five in March 2017 on our honeymoon as part of a trip around South Africa. Sea Five was by far our favourite hotel of the holiday! It is a complete Oasis whilst being in the perfect location to explore Cape Town. Our room had a lovely view of Table Mountain and was big, spotlessly...

We spent 2 nights here and have only praise for this delightful boutique hotel. The staff were friendly and efficient. The location is great - about a 5 minute walk down to the beach. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The added touch was a complimentary minibar.

Stayed for a week here and from beginning to end, wonderful service, stunning room, beautiful breakfasts and staff second to none! Hotel has a contemporary feel, bright, airy and large windows giving the public and rooms a very bright sunny feel. Just a few minutes away from Camps Bay central, easy walking distance to all the bars and restaurants. Secure,...

We stayed 5 nights and prefer the smaller hotels with the more personal service they provide. This was an excellent choice with a huge room with a view of the 12 Apostles from the small balcony. The service and staff were brilliant though if we are honest we felt that the owner could have made himself more known. This is...

Sea Five was a great small boutique hotel to stay at.They had a very friendly staff. Beautifully decorated lobby and guest rooms. We had a lovely room and it was quite large. Location was excellent. 5 minute walk to the beach and lots of restaurants. I definitely recommend this hotel and would gladly stay here again.

Marco, Rose and all the team make your stay in Cape Town absolutely perfect. I cannot fault Sea Five. It's not just the lovely surroundings, the delicious breakfasts and great location close to lots of bars and restaurants, it's the warm welcome which got our holiday off to a great start. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed here from 29th January to 1st February 2017 - 4 nights. The hotel is located in Camps Bay, about 10-15 minutes by car or taxi from the heart of Cape Town. Our daughter had stayed here in September 2016 on her honeymoon and had very strongly recommended it to us. We had a Mountain Junior...

A wonderful welcome by Marco & Rose, was made to feel comfortable straight away. Lovely location - close enough (walking distance) to the beach and hustle and bustle of the bars/restaurants in Victoria Road. Private car parking which was great. Large suites with all the amenities you'd care for. We had a mountain view room which was really pleasant, although...

We have stayed here before, that said the service just gets better and better. All of Marco's team without exception are brilliant in their approach to customer service. Nothing is to much trouble. Listen to Marco when it comes 'where to dine' on Cape Town. We will return again soon.
