This bed and breakfast offers traditional hospitality and charm. Surrounded by mountains and with a profusion of mature trees and shrubs, Amblewood is a tranquil escape from one's day-to-day routines.
Amblewood’s charm (family photos in the foyer), and sense of spaciousness (unique views over Hout Bay beach and harbour) are perfectly blended with a homely, comfortable atmosphere.
Each room is styled in a quirky, original or personal style, which seeks to avoid the box-like, mass-produced feel of the hotel chain. All rooms say come in, relax, put your feet up and sleep well and all rooms have spectacular views of the ocean, Hout Bay harbour, beach and the Sentinel Mountain.
The emphasis at Amblewood Guest House, is on relaxation and restoration. One can lounge on the pool deck under shady umbrellas, swim in the cool waters of our pool or simply relax with a good book from our well-stocked library.
On the long summer evenings a glass of wine may be enjoyed on one's private balcony or patio while watching a vivid sunset over Hout Bay harbour, and the Sentinel Mountain.
Tours of Cape Town and surrounding areas, car rentals and restaurant bookings can be organized and Trevor and June are happy to offer information, help and advice if desired.
A generous full English breakfast is served on Amblewood's pool deck each morning. Highly recommended for friendliness, cleanliness and hosts who give value for your dollar.
