Stayed here two years ago and revisited in January 2015 to find not much had changed really, which was good as we loved our annexe room with sea view. Cleanliness excellent, staff friendly and accommodating, views fabulous and being at the bottom of the world famous Chapmans Peak Drive it was easy to drive over this breathtakingly scenic route most...

We had been to the restaurant before and enjoyed the food and the scenery - but with the price we paid for the room we had expected more than just a nice view! When we checked in they were quick to take our credit card details for payment but failed to tell us about the complimentary breakfast. Instead we were... More

It is clear from all the reviews that the calamari is this hotels signature dish so naturally we tried it. Driving over the awesome chapmans peak and ariving at this place felt like i sm in Greece. Stunning! The calamari really lives up to the hype. Thick soft and well dusted. Will nog find better. Go try it!

Our room was lovely, with a sea view that was gorgeous, but the rest of the hotel was disappointing. Some of the staff were not very friendly, breakfast was average, chipped cereal bowls, sticky tables, and a waitress who wasn't very helpful. NO decaffeinated coffee at breakfast at all, not even instant, and when we were asked if we wanted... More

I've stayed at Chapmans Peak Hotel a number of times now, recently tried some City Centre hotels but much prefer Chapmans Peak and this time I checked out of the city early and managed to get a couple of rooms for my colleagues at Chapmans Peak. Since my last visit, there is a new menu (my biggest moan before was... More

Stayed here for a week during February after a week business trip in Johannesburg. I was looking forward to getting away from the City and to the views and beaches. The location of this hotel certainly delivered that, a fabulous location for exploring the Western Cape (with a car). I rented the penthouse and it was glorious. The view over... More

We stayed at the Chapmans Peak over Christmas whilst visiting family in Cape Town - 6 nights. We took three en suite rooms in the new wing (we travelled with Granny, and two 20 plus year olds). We each had a beautiful room with en suite bathroom and sep shower and loo! The location is fabulous as you are almost... More

We stayed here in December 2014 for 4 nights. We had a lovely modern room with great views over the beach and it had a nice size balcony. This is a good location in Hout Bay as you can walk across the beach from the hotel and walk into the town. The restaurant food is excellent and the outside terrace... More

Very friendly reception staff. We got a room in the new section of the hotel. The rooms are quite large, plenty of storage space. Excellent bathroom with bath & seperate shower. You can open up the bathroom for more views from the bath or close it. Breakfast is ok. You can sit outside or inside. The outside terrace is next... More
