Away from bustling Cape Town and nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, is this gem. We stayed in an ocean view suite which was wonderful. The hotel staff were so hospitable and nice; the food was excellent; the ocean view was so beautiful.

Set against the stunning backdrop of the 12 apostle mountains, this boutique hotel commands a dramatic view of the sea. It specialises in being small but perfectly formed and the staff are there to indulge guests' every whim. Food is excelent and there is a great mountain walk from the hotel.

Views along route to and from the the Point take you thru high-end towns, quaint fishing villages, lovely beaches, penguins etc., but it's the majesty of the mountains that will remain your lasting image of all the is beautiful about the Cape.

This hotel was part of a South Africa tour package, so we didn't know much about it other than the reviews on trip advisor and the praise that our travel agent gave. The location is a little out of the way, but not that far from Cape Town if you have a car (about a 5 minute drive to Camps... More

We spent the afternoon at Camp Bay and watched the sunset, on one side you have the sun hiding behind the sea, and on the other you have this incredible mountains all dyed in red making an incredible scenario. Afterward we had dinner at one of the many great restaurantes there.

We enjoyed a food and wine pairing evening and weekend stay at the hotel with excellent choices of pairing, food was very delectable apart from desert accompanied by liquid nitrogen foam finish which it not to my personal liking. Otherwise great dining experience with fine dining options and incredible view. Great hotel to spend a weekend indulging in delicate food... More
