This was our second visit to the Clarendon following our trip in 2013. We were welcomed back by all the staff like family. We arrived just before 10 but our stunning room was quickly prepared for us and heralded a most enjoyable 5 nights in this luxurious boutique gem. Breakfast was as enjoyable as the stunning view across the bay.... More

Excellent as advertised; like having a perfect studio apartment overlooking the Atlantic. Comfortable, safe, beautiful. Food at breakfast could be a smidge better, otherwise this really could not be improved. We were very happy here.

When we arrived at this guesthouse, we thought we might have come to the wrong place - it just looks like any other house, no name, just a street number - with a few cars parked outside. How wrong we were! We walked down the stairs and into the reception area and there before us, spread out a beautiful light... More

We spent 2 nights in the Penthouse Suite for our silver wedding anniversary. The service, reception, tea time and breakfast was great. Very helpful were the street maps that we got on enquiry as to where to drive to on our daily excursions. For my husband and me, the views from thr room and Dining (breakfast) area are always most...

Clarendon Bantry Bay was the first stop (4 nights) for our honeymoon and we could not have picked a better place to stay in Cape Town. Although we arrived way before check-in, at about 8am, they offered us a delicious breakfast (overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with views of Robben Island!), had a chat to us and provided ideas and maps...

The rooms, the setting, the views, the staff . . .all culminating in a fabulous boutique hotel! If you have a bad stay at this hotel, it is your fault as the staff are unbelievably helpful and truly want you to enjoy every moment of your stay. The Penthouse is purely stunning (NICE SHOWER), and falling asleep outside was perfection.... More

Excellent location with stunning views, this Boutique Hotel provides superb accomodation matched with great service from a polite, caring and capable team. We loved our stay and were grateful to the team for making our experience very special. Breakfasts and drinks on the terrace were great.

Exquisitely chic and well managed by the owner and her great team. The penthouse is incredible and at a reasonable price (for this sort of value). The breakfast on the terrasse is great, with views on the Atlantic ocean from Bantry Bay. The superior suite are also fantastic. The standard room are not the greatest assets of this place. Overall... More

The location is perfect - just 2km from the city centre. Rooms amazing, but go for the staff: Noel, David, Regev, Bernice, Isaac, etc. We were a rowdy, demanding group of 6, and they were always thinking three steps ahead about how to deliver flawless service.

Truly stunning views from gorgeous, spacious rooms. Caring, lively staff, and great breakfast buffet! Perfect location too. As a demanding Parisian, trust me when I say that this hotel is your best bet for an unforgettable travel experience to South Africa.
