We stayed for 3 nights at the end of January, hotel is beautifully decorated and so peaceful. Views from the dining room and the balcony were great, especially at sunset. We first booked in to a superior suite but upgraded to the penthouse which was to die for. Didn't want to leave!! Hotel was a in a great location for... More

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. Bantry... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of beginning our honeymoon in SA at The Clarendon and what a start it was! Cape Town is such a beautiful city and we were so glad to stay here away from the waterfront, as it was such a lovely home to arrive at after a day out and had all the charm... More

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.
