Last hotel of our honeymoon and we had the penthouse. The room was massive, great views and location was perfect opposite a lovely beach. Breakfast wasn't the best but the food in the restaurant for lunch and dinner was probably the best seafood we ate in Cape Town and amazing value!! Perfect location to do the chapmans peak drive.

Beautiful hotel. Staff excellent..from night guard to waiters, to front desk. Restaurant was outstanding. We were here in the winter, and temps averaged 68 F and sunny. Bed was extremely comfortable. Ask for ocean view. Well worth the extra money.

Went there this week end because we were given a voucher bought at an auction. Good location and the view from our room was gorgeous. It was clean, quiet, the staff were very nice. Room was nicely decorated. We tried the calamari at the hotel restaurant, they were very fresh and tasty.

Recently stayed at hotel for a couple of days as I was attending a business meeting at the hotel. My initial view and thought of the hotel was not very good as the first thing you see is this historic building which seems to have not changed much over time! however as you step into the hotel itself, there is...

We've been coming to Hout Bay as both a family and as a group of cyclists for 18 years. Our tradition has always been to visit Chappies on our first (and to be honest 5/7) nights. The menu is the same as it was but why change a tried and tested formula - fresh oysters, legendary calamari and great steaks... More

Stayed here for the first time this trip, owing to the fire having wiped out Tintswalo, just up the road. I took a mountain view (back) room, and it was superb, spacious, comfortable, and impeccably clean. Don't get me wrong; I love a sea view, but would I pay double for it? Especially as you can hang on the terrace... More

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
