We were staying at the Retreat and decided to try The Bay for dinner and to feel the lively ambiance of the area. Dinner was good and service was ok. The hotel has a nice beachfront location with a classy Jaguar transfer.

I visited this hotel on the recommendation from friends and it didn't disappoint. I had a room that led straight out to the pool. Good size rooms and had an amazing nights sleep! The hotel is opposite the beach and has great places to eat on its doorstep.

Billed as a four star but felt more like a five star hotel. The staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful (even running to the local supermarket to buy my husband a lighter when his ran out) The room we had was huge (room 311) with an outside deck and jacuzzi. The room itself was beautifully and tastefully decorated -... More

great location. Sea views. Good service. Restaurants on your doorstep. Booked a mountain view room, but was quite disappointed with it, as it was more a view of a bowling green and rooftops. I thought I'd be getting a picturesque view. Room was nice and big, with a separate sitting area. Plenty of storage space. Had wifi, and a little... More

We stayed at the Bay Hotel for (4) nights at the end of Feb. Our room was a suite overlooking the water, which was gorgeous. The room itself was nicely appointed and comfortable with (2) balconies and loungers. The pool area was nice, but we spent most of our time at the beach. The scenery behind the hotel is phenomenal...

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the overall experience. The pool area was very nice and you have the most amazing view of Campsbay and can lounge all day enjoying the sun. Besides that, there isn't a lot to do at the hotel self, but I guess they don't have to offer anything else as there are... More

Always treated well. Particularly enjoyed the wonderful sundowners on the deck which is helped by the exceptional view over the bay. Great attention to detail by Sean Geyser, the manager, and his staff. Would definitely return on my next visit to the Cape.
