I chose the Bay Hotel as I wanted somewhere safe as a solo female traveller and I had stayed nearby previously (at the primi royal - good choice if you don't want to splurge) and knew that the bay was in a good location. Camps bay is lovely and a very good choice in capetown. The Bay has a Great location right on camps bay beach, fantastic views, lovely small pool area and decking, nice bar at the pool area. Great room with balcony (I first had a room with a private terrace but moved to one on a higher floor for peace of mind security wise), good restaurants nearby. Nice extra touches e.g they bring cupcakes to your room at turndown and fresh fruit on arrival. some other guests lone travellers, not made to feel uncomfortable, seem to get a lot of repeat business. Hotel have a driver who took me out and about I felt more comfortable using this service than getting a taxi and the driver was very reliable. Hotel can book trips for you which is handy. Room very nice indeed and I had a great night's sleep. Only criticisms - staff were not always on the ball e.g giving alcoholic drinks when had asked for non-alcoholic versions., waiting for service, had to wait a long time to check in on arrival striaght off a 12 hour flight also they had some nice changing rooms with shower facilities where you can freshen up whilst waiting for your room but these were not offered to me until I had been there for a couple of hours. Tides restaurant a let down - dinner was mediocre at best - some odd combinations - the restaurant was empty when everywhere else in camps bay was packed and i can see why. Breakfast excellent though.
Overall Bay Hotel is a great choice if you want to splash out but eat elsewhere!
