Stayed here on our honeymoon and had a wonderful time. Returned to our room on the first evening to find scattered rose petals along the floor and bed, a bottle of champagne and a chocolate cake-a lovely touch. Rooms were clean a stylishly decorated. Great views from our room overlooking the pool/sea-amazing sunsets whilst sipping delicious cocktails. I will definitely... More

To start with they did not pick us up at the airport with the hotel Porsche as had been pre-arranged. Then I booked the hotel car to take us to a restaurant. The driver did not show. I asked for the manager, Sean Geyser, and I was told he was busy then saw him hanging out with friends. The hotel... More

We stayed 6 nights. The hotel facilities are clean and nice. Personel is kind and professional. The spa is top notch!! We most appreciated the big pool (better for the kids). But there are 3 other more quiet, "adult" pools right up front. Restaurant was great along with wine list. We had a gorgeous suite (top floor) with 2 terraces... More

This was our first trip to South Africa and we loved it. The hotel made a great impression from the start. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a beautiful and spacious room overlooking the bay. From our lovely balcony we could watch life on the beach but the road between it and the hotel was largely hidden from view.... More

A great hotel in a great town spent relaxing in the SA heat after a few days in Cape Town. Having previously rented an apartment this was a very wise choice and good value. Will not book anywhere else when in the area

Having been to Cape Town before I knew that I didn't want to be city centre again and our travel agent, Escape Worldwide, recommended the Bay Hotel.

This is a hotel with a perfect location. If you going to stay a few days in Cape Town in business or pleasure you should try this hotel It is very relaxed, soft and cozy but with a high class standard. It is worth the extra miles compare to stay in the centre of Cape Town.
