Lovely, modern, clean rooms and walking distance to the beach, restaurants and bars in Camps Bay. We had a mountain view room which was great, but the views were amazing from anywhere in the hotel. Highly recommend.

The decor and amenities in the rooms are just superb! The breakfasts were also absolutely fantastic, and there...

We have spent the last 6 days staying here and have a lovely relaxing time. We had the garden room ,12, and it was as though we were in our own private paradise complete with fish pool and waterfall. Breakfasts were delicious with plenty of choice and staff went out of the way to be helpful. Thank you so much....

We stayed here for 3 nights 2 weeks ago. It is just idyllic. 45 minutes taxi from Cape Town airport just outside Camps Bay. The rooms are spacious, light with all the facilities, a jacuzzi on the balcony, a full kitchen with a full mini-bar or fridge to put your own SA wines in. The staff were all friendly and...

We had a great stay here. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Our room was large and clean, with a terrace overlooking the ocean - but do note this hotel is not on the beachfront. The breakfasts are to die for - up there with the best we've had in forty years of travelling. It's a safe daytime walk...
