This is a small boutique hotel with stunning views of the Atlantic situate in Bantry Bay approx 15 min from Cape Town City Centre. The hotel is a small luxury one with attentive staff and great food. The rooms are large and have their own patio with amazing views. Highly recommended

This signature hotel is perfectly located to capture a magnificent sunset on a warm autumn's day (or any other day for that matter). South African's would call it a "Top Billing" destination. Others would call it world class. Beautiful view, beautiful decor, attention to detail, bathroom bliss. Did I mention the view?!

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!!
