We stayed there for a week, after a 1.500 km discovery journey we did from Joburg to Cape Town. The Clarendon is a former private residence - still privately owned - turned into a small luxury boutique hotel, located in one of the most upmarket and expensive areas of South Africa. We had one of the two rooms on the...

No better way to start our journey in South Africa! Room was very confortable and large with a beautiful view onto the sea. Very large bathroom. Great staff. Breakfast overlooking the bay. Just a few km from Cam Bay and its restaurants.

What a fantastic stay my wife and I had at this amazing place. Our suite had the most incredible sea views where we sipped cocktails and watched the sunset. The position is great but you need a car to visit the winelands and out lying areas. The breakfasts were delicious with a great variety of cheeses, fruits and fresh breads....

We stayed at the Clarendon during our first trip to Cape Town. It is a stunning hotel. A lot of thought has clearly gone into the interior design. The service was impeccable, the staff couldn't do enough to help and left us wanting for nothing. The breakfasts were delicious and served looking out at one of the best views in...

Great service, amenable, attentive and always with a smile. I always felt like I was home. I did not enjoy the breakfast much but it was above average. Love the Tamzam, Andrew and the staff in the kitchen.... Will definitely stay again.

Very poor breakfast, not even croissants on the very small buffet. Even in mango season no mangos. If something finished of the buffet it is not replaced, so you better go early for breakfast. The staff is very friendly but can not coop when nothing in the fridge or pantry. I think the owners are trying to get rich in...

Good location for Cape Town, Table Mountain, Constantia, V&A Waterfont, Camps Bay. Uber readily available, and very cheap. Far easier than driving and parking anywhere locally. Limited on site Parking available, not a problem when we were there, but if fully occupied it may be more tricky. On initial check for one of our rooms we were given keys to...

The highlight of our stay was the staff who are just so friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautifully equipped with fantastic views of the ocean albeit over the top of other properties. The location is ideal if you have a car, otherwise there are a few hills to tackle and a taxi is the best bet. It is only...

We spent our last 4 nights of our holiday here and what a view! We chose a premium room so we had a fantastic view of the ocean and what a view it was from the glass balcony. The room was huge and the beds were 2 double beds, perfect as we were 2 friends sharing. Bathroom equally huge with...

This is a five star place which is let down by 1 star internet service. The breakfast is fab with a great view over the ocean. We watched whales just offshore. Incredible Staff were helpful.
