It is a good place for someone travelling on holiday. It is in Camps Bay and within a walking distance from the beach. It is very peaceful and has a homely atmosphere. They offer breakfast which has a good variety.

This has been my second stay at the Balfour Guest House. Both times, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is very nice in Camps Bay and the house itself is beautiful. It has become the first place that I check when we are planning a trip to Cape Town.

The location is perfect because it's quiet and beautiful with fantastic views and within two minutes you can be in the hustle and bustle which we loved.
