Fabulous stay at the Clarendon. We had read all the reviews and wondered how our experience could live up to others. However, the entire team led by Enny, were fabulous. Everyone was so concerned that our holiday got off to a great start - helping us access the room early, making restaurant suggestions and reservations and booking guides for us.... More

Excellent boutique hotel. Very friendly staff (reservations restaurants; tickets Tafelberg etc.). Nearby (walking distance) very nice restaurants and the breakfast is briljant with a view at the garden. Our room was very specious with a great bathroom. From here with a taxi to the waterfront takes only about 10 minutes. We had a very pleasant stay for 4 days. Baie... More

My new wife, Lizzy, and I stayed at The Clarendon Fresnaye on the first three nights of our honeymoon in June 2014. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome by all the staff who genuinely couldn't do enough for us! The room was stunning with distant views of the Cape Town bay to one side... More

We stayed there last week with our five children during our visit to South Africa. The entire team was amazing in responding to our very request and need. It is a beautiful old estate with pretty gardens that once belonged to the Earl of Clarendon who was the governor of the Cape. Have travelled the world and stayed in the... More

We recently spent four nights at the Clarendon Fresnaye as part of a South Africa/Victoria Falls vacation. The location of the hotel is convenient. The guest rooms are charming and comfortable. The common areas and grounds are lovely. Best of all, every member of the Clarendon staff was incredibly warm, gracious and hospitable. Capetown is beautiful. We would return to... More

Stayed 4 nights as a family & really loved our room (23!): v bright, separate children room, nice b-room, just 5 steps down to the pool. Service was incredibly nice & helpful (Emmi, Mavuto notably but not only) to fill ur stay with restaurants & activities. Nice & cosy atmosphere. Only slight issue: street noise.

Very comfortable rooms and well kept garden. Breakfast plentiful and varied. Staff more than helpful and seemed genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our stay. Good location with an easy walk to the beach. Felt a secure setting.
