The location is perfect - walking distance from the promenade, Sea Point, Greenpoint, Clifton, and Camps Bay. The staff are excellent - so attentive and so willing to help. Breakfast... More

Emmy, Nikki, Hayley and the team have got a magic formula. The accommodation, pool area and breakfasts are fantastic all served by a team of staff who are consistently attentive and friendly. 'No' was not in their vocabulary and really couldn't have tried harder to make our stay more enjoyable. Family rooms are so spacious and it didn't take us... More

The hotel is cozy with sumptuous breakfasts overlooking the courtyard and is located in a quiet neighborhood that is within walking distance so shops and restaurants. Emmy greeted us when we arrived. She was so sweet... More

After a long flight from the UK we arrived at The Clarendon Fresnaye a little tired to say the least. We were greeted by the wonderful Emmy who arranged for our bags to be taken to our room which wasn't quite ready and given wonderful reviving coffee. We were then shown where breakfast was available - what a spread! Sumptuous,... More
