Cannot fault this hotel in any way. Liberty, Jerry and all the staff were just a delight. Room 1 with the plunge pool and sea view and room 9 with the stunning views of Camps Bay were just superb. Breakfast was good and a freshly cooked omelette was a great way to start the day. The location was perfect with...

Great location close to beach and restaurants, friendly helpful staff, fantastic room (the de luxe one with spa bath on the balcony). We would definitely stay again. Only glitch was intermittent problem with the lift, but staff were happy to help with bags and I expect this is fixed now!

If you are looking for a place to really chill, away from the busy city centre, you can't beat Camps Bay and a stay at the Primi Royal. The hotel manager, Zane is a true local and her knowledge and advice was invaluable in helping us to plan our 5 day stay. We benefited as honeymooners from Room 10 with...

The hotel is a few minutes walk from the beach and restaurants, and just a short drive from the main route into Cape Town or The Cape of Good Hope. All the rooms have a lovely view, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again if visiting this part of South Africa

I had a wonderful stay at the Primi Royal. My room was superb and the view was spectacular. It is the best room I have ever stayed in ever. Woke up and just opened my eyes and had this amazing dawn over the ocean just in front of me. Did wonders for my soul. I hope to come back again.

The best thing about Primi Royal is its location. Located at the end of the Camps Bay strip, it's a short walk down the hill to all the bars, cafes etc. Our room was nice with plenty of space and we had a great view of Camps Bay. Breakfast is ok and the pool is tiny and pretty much in...

Hello Eoin, thank you for your kind review. Much appreciated! PS: The pool is only in the shade in the very early mornings. Otherwise it has full sun until sunset. :-) Best regards

Reviewed 12 January 2017

Pool is tiny so didn't bother using. Main reason for choosing this hotel besides location. WiFi was intermittent, breakfast was okay, and the hotel had free parking. The room size and furnishings were very good.

PrimiRoyalHotel, General Manager at Primi Royal, responded to this review

Thanks for your review Dale. Although we do advertise that the pool is a splash pool on our website, we have no control over the wording on other sites. They simply ask "Do you have pool or not?", and so of course we tick the Yes box. May I suggest that in future, if a large swimming pool is important...

Hotel is well situated but, not owner run. Could only order from the restaurant after 6pm, so no pizza next to the pool for lunch. Bar didn't have bitters for the basic cocktails. Willing staff. Breakfast only ok.

PrimiRoyalHotel, General Manager at Primi Royal, responded to this review

Hello Anne, thank you for reviewing us. Your comments all noted as we always value guest input which we could improve upon. However we have zero influence on delivery orders of any outside restaurants. And in fact Primi Piatti is the only restaurant that does deliver in Camps Bay, but only after 7pm = out of our control. Best regards

An unusual entrance up either one flight of stairs or the lift to reception. I went up to check we were OK to park under the hotel before checkingin. No help with luggage was offered nor when we checked out. The room was good with nice views across the bay. Not fussed on the balcony open to the next room....

Hello Hilda, thank you for the 4/5 review. Much appreciated.
