Dear Leanne211 Thank you for the review - you right we have so many bars and restaurants in Camps Bay - it will be difficult to choose one. Best is to stay long enough to test all of them. Have a great week!! Kind regards Marlie More

The parking is secure, and the staff friendly. We arrived a little late as our flight from Heathrow was slightly delayed. The staff helped with luggage, we enjoyed the view and the rooms superb. We love our 3 days here, and the beach and the location close to Cape Town centre. We travelled and explored from here. Breakfast was lovely... More

Wonderful stay, but sadly the lift wasn't in use, so the penthouse was a bit of a climb. But oh boy, was it worth it! Three individual pools, a superb gift basket on arrival, no less than four wc's and luxurious bathrooms and bedrooms....we luxuriated in the panoramic views as well. We didn't eat in, indeed we weren't even shown... More

I was happy we picked the Place on the Bay as it was great value and well located - right on the beach with plenty of restaurants within a stones throw. We opted for an ocean front studio and I'm happy we spent... More

This hotel is all about the view and hospitality of its front desk ppl. We stayed on the 3rd floor sea facing room with a small kitchenette. The room is large enough to accommodate 2 ppl, however it looked a bit tired. The glassdoor in the shwower was not completely sealed, so water puddled on the floor every time we... More
