Great place to stay with superb views and lovely, welcoming staff. Only downside for me was that there was no hot water for the two days that I stayed there, hence four stars. The hotel is about 20 minutes from the CBD but there are plenty of taxis.

The hotel was very nice, big rooms and what a VIEW! Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit every morning just got our taste buds popping. There is a chef that will prepare a meal for you with 24 hours notice. Pool was very great.

Stumbled into the Clarendon after a gruelling flight and met a standard of service that makes a traveller fell like they are staying with a good friend. Nothing was every too much trouble and the view and dedication to cleanly perfection made our stay nothing short of a highlight. These guys know what they're doing and customer service is king.

This was the first place we stayed on our honeymoon in South Africa and what a place it was! The room was beautiful and by far the best room I have ever stayed in (the view was fabulous)- we are now back from our honeymoon and I have to say that this was truly the best accommodation of the whole...

The greatest compliment to the Clarendon is that the friends we came with stayed at the Cape Grace and when they saw our room and the fantastic view, they said they wished they would have stayed here. We can't say enough about the very helpful staff, the room and the entire experience. It was a total delight.

My husband and I started off our 2 week honeymoon by staying here for 5 nights. We didn't choose this hotel ourselves, but it was highly recommended by our travel agent. She had never met us in person, but after exhanging a few emails about what we were looking for, she could not have picked a better place. The staff... More

The Clarendon Bantry Bay is an outstanding location, with great views. The staff are superb and ensure everyone has a great experience. The breakfast is served hot and fresh, straight from the kitchen and afternoon snacks are very tasty. Two of the lower priced rooms have drawbacks. One of them is located at the same level as the parking area... More

i was part of a group of 11 that began our Tour de South Africa in Cape Town, and more specifically at the Clarendon. 4 days and nights of absolute bliss! The rooms were beautiful, bright and pristine and the staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and genuinely cheerful. They attended to our every request with a smile.... More

The Clarenendon is beautiful in ever way. Rooms are beautiful decorated and have been thoughtful stock with extras that make your stay a luxurious retreat. Afternoon tea with homemade cakes and cookies makes you think you gone to heaven. The staff is truly delightful, warm , caring and kind...something you don't find very often in the hotel industry. When I... More
