This place is just about perfect. Everything is clean, the food is great and just a short walk to the bars in the evening if you want to go out . If you want you can just relax in the grounds. Go see.

Although I have rated very low for the review, this was due to a bad experience having money stolen from our safety deposit box and not the overall experience of the accommodation. I will elaborate further. Upon arrival staff very personable and friendly and we were shown around the Manor House part of the hotel which was built in 1929...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camps Bay Retreat Luxury Boutique Hotel is a sanctuary for the soul, set on four acres of lush green nature reserve. With a mountain meditation pool, thickets of trees, waterfalls and streams, it is a peaceful paradise, where meditative moments are waiting to be had. Views stretch across the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean and along the peaks of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, from the Deck House and The Villa. The estate has features such as four pools, a tennis court, a spa and a fine dining restaurant. Dine in the old world splendour of the original manor house, where The Retreat Kitchen's executive chef creates a daily menu of gourmet fare, combining a symphony of fresh ingredients from local markets. Food is paired exquisitely with celebrated wines from the region, best experienced as part of a candlelit three course affair! Spoil yourself with a choice of massages, treatments and facials at the spa. Spend the day luxuriating in the spa, relaxing in the sauna and being revitalized with a deep tissue massage. A refuge for the body and a haven for the mind, you'll unravel and surrender to the tranquility. ... more   less
