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

Very good italian restaurant. Good food, good wine, good service, nice vibes! The oWners are italian which gives it authentic feel. Its just 100 meters away from yhe hussle and bussle from the centre of camps bay, which gives it a more relaxed feel.

We spent 5 nights here at the end of our Cape Town tour. The hotel has a great location, close to plenty of bars and reataurants. The room was very clean and we found staff to be friendly and helpful at all times. Located on a beautiful beach and we recommend a stay here.
