Beautiful, spacious, comfortable rooms with fantastic views from the suite. Quiet. Great service when we were in the rooms. Didn't find the rooms dated at all. In fact I thought the suite was gorgeous and cozy. The lobby is nice and airy but nothing particularly special. Breakfast was plentiful with good variety. Room service food was GREAT. We loved it....

Lovely hotel overlooking the stunning beach. Its a great place to stay if you want to be in the middle of everything with restaurants, shops next door. However, if you want peace and quiet this isn't the place as there is a road in front of the hotel and the main strip gets quite busy. The pool areas are lovely...

Recently went on honeymoon to S.A. from Ireland and started off in the Bay Hotel in Camps Bay. The hotel was really nice. The rooms were clean, spacious and modern. Nice breakfast, cool pools and great location on the beachfront. We were especially sorted out by Sedick who really made our stay extra special. He had some great suggestions of...

From absolutely shocking service at lunch to horrific massage service our massage ladies phone rang with a gangster rap tune mid massage the hour massage we booked was only 45 minutes and they mixed up where we had booked. No water was given. Beautiful location but I'll never set foot there again.

We come to Cape Town every year and have stayed in a number of quality hotels in the area. The Bay is our favorite by a long shot. The rooms are contemporary, with nicely appointed features for comfort. Made even better this year by an upgrade for one night to their Penthouse and one night to their suite!! No idea...

The Bay hotel is an alleged a 5 star hotel that is situated right across the road from the beach with great views. Arriving at the hotel we were given a luke warm welcome. The interior of the hotel is tired and could do with a face lift. We had booked a suite as it was my partners birthday. Room...

We Recently stayed in this hotel for 7 days and this was a tad too long, the owners are missing a trick here as hotel is in a prime situation in Camps Bay with very good restaurants within minutes. Unfortunately reception area is uninviting as really tired and dated, breakfast restaurant and one by the pool have white plastic chairs...

We recently stayed here for 2 nights and were not impressed. The staff on reception were rude. The only place to eat is what they call a restaurant we would call it a snack bar and on speaking to a couple we met earlier in our holiday that were also staying here they advised us not to go. There are...

The Bay Hotel is an old hotel, perfectly situated in the middle of Camp's Bay with a lovely view across the busy road to the beach. There are no gardens - the outdoor areas comprise a large deck with sun loungers in serried ranks, a small swimming pool abutting the building, another two very small pools nearer the street and...

Great location, slap bang in the centre of Camps Bay you can't get a better spot. In saying that it's not noisy at all which is surprising considering the location. Sideck is superb, he's an absolute superstar nothing is too much for him. I was in CT for the Argus cycle race (which unfortunately got cancelled due to high winds)...
