Minutes from Campy Bay, but "out of the way". Excellent sunset, excellent service at the Leopard Bar. Try their end 80s R60.000 Bordeaux in the restaurant?

We had a three-course meal at Azure Restaurant. I enjoyed the Malay chicken curry - the presentation was excellent and the selection of sambals made the meal even more enjoyable. The staff member was knowledgable and made sure any queries we had were seen to. The view is gorgeous.

What a lovely treat - the spa, the restaurant, the coctail bar/lounge overlooking the Ocean - is simply magnificent. You have both worlds woven between you - the ocean and the twelve apostles. Pet-friendly and luxurious rooms to choose from.

This is a spot for a few good photos only as your time shoudl be better spent elsewhere. The scenery with enough sunshine was magnificent and a quick stop at the large carpark overlooking the Twelve Apostes will be more than sufficient.

We have visited on a number of occasions for dinner, lunch, breakfast and just coffee. Our lunch was good but breakfast not so. Our food was overcooked and barely warm. Our coffee was weak and cold. We returned all the coffee s and even then it wasn't hot. The waitress got our order wrong but we didnt bother to change... More

Although they initially lost my booking, they made it up by hosting my friends and I in the lovely library. It meant we were not rushed and was able to stay longer than the standard 2 hours. Was a lovely afternoon.

The 12 Apostles are lovely, almost anyone visiting Cape Town will see them and will be blown away by their beauty. Basically if you are looking at Table Mountain from Clifton/Camps Bay, you can see them to the right hand side of Table Mountain. There is a lovely drive you can do from Clifton down the beach front at Camps... More
