We wrote a review last year on the 21st Jan 2014 - this note is simply to echo our views. This 'home from home' was welcoming, luxurious, friendly, safe and we enjoyed every second of our visit. This place is a haven amidst the bussle of Camps Bay. I don't believe I have ever stayed in a hotel (and I... More

We stayed here for the final 3 nights of our honeymoon and we're pleasantly surprised! Our room was lovely, with a sea view, which was beautiful for watching the sunset from our Bed! The reception staff were helpful and friendly, and breakfast in the restaurant was nice. The hotel is easy walking from all of the bars and restaurants along... More

Everything was ok. We stayed four nights. The location is nice. At the corner of victoria and fairway – near but not quite in the hustle and bustle of the promenade, The place is clean and pretty well kept. The restaurant il cappero provides breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast buffet is basic - at 80R value.... What do you really... More

Did not stay in the Fairways but went there for dinner only. Outside tables are great in the evenings with a glimpse of the sunset over the sea. had a pasta meal was great and we enjoyed the gnocci special - smooth and soft as it should be. I also appreciated the one-price approach to some really good quality wines.... More

My son and I spent three nights at Fairways on the Bay. We had a lovely room with a view of the ocean. The price was reasonable ($200 a night) given that we were across the road from the beach. The staff at reception were incredibly warm and helpful in helping us rent a car, get a cab and advising... More

Having read the other reviews for Fairways on the Bay I felt compelled to write. Myself and my husband stayed here from 2nd Jan to 11th Jan and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. I would say that Fairways itself is more like a boutique guest house and testament to that we were made to feel right at home immediately. We arrived... More

Fairways website is thin on information and relies on that provided by its sister hotel Places on the Bay. The view is extremely limited, there is no lift and having to climb 3 or 4 flights of stairs to your room every time is not pleasurable. The wifi voucher system is poor. The kettle was located on the carpet as... More

Other then having a great location in the heart of Camps Bay, this is not a 4 star property and Fairways does not offer many amenities that other 4 stars in Cape Town do (neither breakfast nor wifi were included). When we got to our room and called downstairs since nothing in the room seemed to work (tv, some lights,... More
