This is how hotels should be: clean, efficient, lovely staff, excellent food, modern decor and rooms, great wifi ( a big plus in SA where wifi at hotels seems patchy at best) excellent view ( I had an ocean view room), access to the beach, good mix of locals and international guests and secure parking. Having stayed in a number... More

Making the reservation was effortless and staff responded efficiently via email. All my queries prior to arrival were answered in a timely manner. I had a mountain view room, which was quite large, clean, quiet and had a comfortable bed. There is ample parking below the hotel. Wifi signal in the room was good. The price was reasonable and included... More

Just had one night here .. Accomodation amazing with sea view over Sentinel peak, rooms comfortablle.. Lovely linen bedding and amazing bathroom. Even had calamari and squid starter, although we were going to dinner party later.. Best in the world! Looks a bit old wordish from the outside, but really wonderful! Fireplaces cosy and huge breakfast.

Chapmans Peak Hotel is delightful mix of elegant old world pleasures with modern accommodation in the new wing. The dining area and bar are old structures with plenty of wooden finishes. But it works well with fires blazing in the old fire places. We found the service to be very good. The waiter that served our table, Terry, is excellent... More

The recently refurbished hotel with a new wing offer comfortable, beautifully designed rooms with all the amenities. Room service was delicious and not overpriced as one often finds in hotels. Staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

We stay in the Northern Suburbs of CT. While training for the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon, our local club decided to have a training run on part of the two oceans route. The race started at 5:30 in the morning at the foot of Chapmanspeak. We decided (wisely) to book into the Chapmans peak hotel. Had an early dinner in... More

We were on a two day business trip. Prior to booking we had enquired about wi-fi in the rooms and were told that there was indeed free wi-fi in the room. When we discovered that it was not working and reported it we were told that it would be fixed the next day. Not so - this obviously created major... More

Great place to stay in Hout if you want a hotel. As a single traveller I needed an in-house evening restaurant and Chapmans fitted the bill. Great views and just cross the road in the morning and there is a superb 30 min walk across the beach and back. Choose a sea facing room and you will not be disappointed.... More

We had an enjoyable stay at this small hotel, the view from our room was lovely and the room was exceptionally clean, being a clean freak this was a pleasant suprise. The staff are helpful. On a negative the walls are paper thin so instead of falling asleep to the sound of the ocean you will fall asleep to the... More
