The breakfast was possibly the worst selection I've encountered anywhere in the world.There was no chicken,lambor fish for Hindus.The hot meals had to ordered from the kitchen and the service was terrible.Had to buy chicken colony from Pick and Pay supermarket next door and take with approval to breakfast :ridiulous. Location and hotel staff Great.

We stayed here for 3 nights after a trip down the Garden Route.The hotel is right on the promenade and our room overlooked the bay,well worth paying the extra for a sea view.Beautiful room ,very spacious with sitting area and great balcony.Good breakfast.The hotel has clearly been re-furbished in the last few years and we loved it and can't wait...

Excellent service. Beautiful surroundings and well furnished rooms with all the amenities you could possibly ask for. Pool area is gorgeous and the breakfasts were pretty good. Will definitely be back when I'm next in Cape Town. If possible get a room with a jacuzzi on the balcony. You won't regret it.

We booked into the Bay Hotel and because of the low occupancy (being the middle of winter) we were upgraded to the suite on arrival. What a treat. The suite is discreetly back from the road so privacy is not an issue but when you open the doors from the bedroom your balcony cuts out the road and you only... More

The hotel is in a beautiful location with stunning views, we didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment, but have to say the breakfast was a huge disappointment over the week we had stayed in various locations eating wonderful freshly served food unfortunately Bays breakfast was not to the standard suggested. We stayed in the Cabana room with great... More

Stayed here for a week on business in July. The views of the beach and mountain were amazing. The staff could not do enough to help and went way beyond the call of duty - that included repairing my broken shoe at 7.30 in the evening leaving a perfect shoe back in my room whilst I went out.
