The Primi Royal has superb views over Camps Bay and from our room we had a great view. The staff were so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful whenever we asked for anything. The room was lovely as was the breakfast. Great start to our honeymoon.

We enjoyed our stay at the Primi-Royal, especially the lovely view of the bay. We booked the Superior Room with Seaview and it was totally worth it. The view from our room included gorgeous sunsets, and we enjoyed the spacious room and comfy tub. The staff members were friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were very tasty. The only negative...

We totally enjoyed our stay at Primi Royal, a small boutique hotel - loved the location and our room with a view of the bay. Convenient to beach, shops, restaurants & public transport into Cape Town. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful; breakfasts were ample & prepared to order. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever, & would heartily recommend.

When we arrived the room we booked was unavailable. They up graded us, for 2 nights, we had to be moved 3rd night. Got in late, to find that the room they had moved us to, stank of smoke, wasn't what we had booked. After 10 at night we were moved to their sister hotel....not very nice, that's why we... More

Hi Mrs Tomaselli, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you were not happy and I'd like to comment on a few things to clarify to both you and our readers. 1) TWIN BED OPTION: When you made your online booking for one of our Standard rooms, you neglected to tick the box indicating that you needed separate Twin Beds....

We stayed here in January and were so bitterly disappointed that we moved out the next day even though we weren't sure of getting our money back, To be fair the owner did after 2 days refund us in full but he was full of excuses. The curtains were torn, the furniture broken and the drains smelled bad. He told... More

The hotel was very handy to the city sightseeing hop on hop off bus and very easy walking distance to wonderful restaurants and great atmosphere of Camps Bay.
