“A wonderful stay with the most amazing views”

Most wonderful view over Hout Bay. Breakfast overlooking the sea from the pool decking was lovely. The owners were very friendly and most helpful We would love to go back another year and would throughly recommend it to our friends. Many thanks for a lovely stay. X

“Lovely stay with amazing view all over hout bay!”
The hosts Trevor and Julie were lovely. We enjoyed breakfast on the pool deck and had a great time in the guesthouse. One day we spent at the pool...the house was fully booked, but everyone was out, so it felt like a private pool...perfect service with towels and sunscreen. We would definitely come back again
“Amblewood - you stole my heart!”

There is nothing to NOT like about Amblewood.

Our host Trevor was AMAZING! Attentive, helpful, he went out of his way to make my niece and I feel right at home. Amblewood Guest House has breath-taking views, with a beautiful pool deck that invites its guests to sit back and relax, take in the sights, and leave the stress behind. Our room was spacious and tastefully furnished, with the MOST comfortable king size bed - I haven't slept this well in years! The smell of fresh bacon and delicious coffee welcomed us the first morning, easing us into the day. With a wide variety of breakfast options (both hot and cold), fresh fruit and juice, there's something for every taste bud. I fell in love with Amblewood, and will most certainly return. Thank you Trevor and your amazing staff for making the weekend a most memorable one!
