Friendly helpful reception, stylish room with great view of the ocean and ideal location for restaurants and shops. It's a fine alternative to the big city centre hotels, yet closer to Table Mountain. .

We spent 4 nights here and had a great time. We splurged and rented the penthouse suite for our stay. If it is in your budget--do it! It was a beautiful place and bigger than my first house when I got out of college. The views from the plunge pool were just spectacular and we had more than a few... More

We stayed for 4 days and had a great experience. The hotel itself is in the perfect location, you just walk outside the hotel, cross the road and you are on the beach, and what a gorgeous beach it is. The room was very clean and well equipped with a nice bathroom, comfy bed, TV and a cute little balcony... More

The hotel is in the center of Camp's Bay and directly across from the beach. We had a 2 bedroom apartment with a view of the ocean. Overall the stay was fine however check in and out took longer than it should have and the rooms are dated but clean.
