This was my third stay at the Clarendon in Bantry Bay, my very favorite hotel. The setting is perfect, the views are gorgeous, the rooms are lovely, and the staff is truly exceptional. I loved everything -- from having a delicious breakfast every morning on the terrace overlooking Cape Town and the sea to being greeted by the friendly staff... More

We stayed in this beautiful hotel with amazing views for 10 nights. Unfortunately due to a late booking by myself we had to move rooms 4 times. The rooms are all fantastic with great views. The staff were fantastic and ever so helpful. Breakfast was great and what views we had, saw whales from breakfast most mornings. We even saw... More

The Bantry Bay Claredon is stylish, beautifully situated, centre of where you want to be as well as private. Breakfasts are delicious and all the staff are friendly and discreet!! Totally perfect for the fantastic walk every morning or evening to Camps Bay and round Victoria Road and then back up again. Cannot wait to go back there!!

My husband and I stayed at The Clarendon Bantry Bay for 8 nights in January, 2015. We had a great stay. The staff are extremely attentive and try to be as helpful as they can (Noel in particular was a huge help while we were there). The hotel is also beautifully appointed. The rooms are beautiful and luxurious and well... More

It was my husband's first visit to Cape Town and I wanted to spoil him on his first night in the city. Staying at The Clarendon was such a great treat. Amazing staff, lovely and attentive. Gorgeous ocean views and spacious, bright rooms at Bantry Bay. I booked Fresnaye, but Emmy was wonderful and upgraded us to Bantry bay. Our... More

The hotel has a great view. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They really tried to assist on our requests. E.g., we could have breakfast in the room (and plenty of things to choose from) or ask for the left-overs of the 4-o'clock cake even if we came late after dinner. We also found the parking and tea-making facilities... More

Great location with a lovely sea view, caring & attentive staff and great food. The rooms were spacious, well designed and bright... The backroad it's on takes a little getting used to, but once inside it's all gold. I'd love to re-book if I get the chance to visit Cape Town again, if anything just to have another breakfast with... More

After lots of indecision we finally chose to spend our Cape Town honeymoon stay at The Clarendon - what a fabulous hotel! Noel greeted us with cakes and tea which we ate as we took in the spectacular views. The room and bathroom were very luxurious and they'd put a few lovely touches in there for our honeymoon stay.
