My wife and I stayed at Cape View for a weekend getaway. We had a fantastic time, the staff was excellent, breakfast on the deck was scrumptious, views of the Twelve Apostles and the ocean to die for and short walk to the beach. Tasteful decor throughout and comfy room. We used Uber to get to the city which is... More

This is a real find. It must have one of the best views of the 12 Apostles in Cape Town and you can spend hours watching the table cloth clouds cascading over the edge. Clifton beaches are a 20 minute walk away down a long fllight of steps a couple of hundred metres from the hotel. The staff are all... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Cape View Clifton. From the amazing views over the beach and the stunning sunsets, to the beautiful decor throughout the property, to the divine breakfasts on the sunny terrace, and finally the warm and wonderful hospitality provided by everyone at the Cape View Clifton. We had a 2 bedroom suite with balcony facing... More

We just had a quick 5 night trip to Cape Town and found this treasure of a hotel. The staff were really helpful both prior to and during our stay, our room was ready ahead of the check in time and we were not leaving until an evening flight and they kindly gave us access to an empty room to...

We loved staying here and will return. The hotel has an intimate feel to it with outstanding service and most of all, great design in a spectacular convenient location in Clifton. The views of the 12 Apostles are unforgettable and we will have lasting memories. Great little pool and beautiful sun deck. We lived Celeste's cooking and Mandy and her... More

If heaven existed on earth, I think I may have found it; a home-from-home where you can still enjoy 5 star luxury overlooking Cape Town’s Clifton beaches and the relentless Atlantic waves. But this is no hotel, oh no, far from it in fact. The Cape View Clifton is single handily redefining the concept of relaxed luxury travel and getting... More

This guesthouse is wonderful! We felt like at home! The staff is so friendly! The deco is very elegant and cosy! The view on Clifton, Camp Bay and the 12 Apostles is a real dream! Last but not least, the breakfast is like in a Sunday brunch in familly! We can only recommend to stay in and we will back... More

We recently spent Easter weekend at this incredible piece of heaven. All home comforts in 5 star style with a view that steals your heart. Kobus and his crew give service a new meaning and we almost packed Celeste, the consummate chef, in our bags to take home. What a special weekend we had. Thank you Cape View!

We stayed in the 3 bedroom suite and cannot recommend the Cape View highly enough. The views down the 12 Apostles and down to Clifton beaches cannot be beaten. The suite has its own terrace and jacuzzi. The service is very good and the breakfasts individually prepared delicious, with a real effort made. I hope we will be back!

The newer crowd head to Camps Bay, but those who know stay in the shelter of Clifton. His is a great place. I would try and avoid our room (2A) even though it was huge, as the balcony had no view. But all the rest looked great. Anyway, the place is made by the fantastic communal dining/drinking area with huge... More
