We arrived to the property late in the evening and the sun had already gone down. At this point only the security guards were still on site and they check us in and escorted to the top floor room (1A, I think). My wife did a wonderful job checking in advance for the best and largest room on the property... More

This hotel is beautiful, right on a cliff...over looking the ocean. The rooms were very comfortable. Our room had a beautiful jacuzzi out side on the patio. Each night we enjoyed sitting there with a glass of wine.... The breakfast were enjoyable. They made anything we wanted.

Don't be too consumed by the stunning views (as great as they are)! The guest service and quality level of the rooms that you would expect from a place like this just wasn't there for us. Our particular room suffered from what was obviously long term lime scale build up in the shower, smelly drains and a serious damp problem... More

This accommodation is even better than it looks online. We stayed in suite 6 - a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom suite with a lounge, kitchen, balcony with lounges and jacuzzi. The balcony, lounge and bedrooms have unobstructed views of the ocean. You hear the crashing waves while you are lying bed admiring the view. The service was 5 start... More

This hotel exceeded all my expectations. It has the most amazing views of the sea. We had two rooms. One being quite larger than the other. They were modern, spotless and had stunning views. The made to order breakfast was also great. We had omelettes everyday. Plus wonderful cookies during the day. It was too cold to use the pool... More

To begin, the views are breathtaking over Camps Bay and the wider expanse of the Atlantic with a view up to table mountain. The waves and the naturally changing skies from sunrise to sunset are stunning. This is a special boutique hotel as you feel part of the family and you live life in colour in an interiors magazine.

Cape View Clifton is a home away from home. It is the perfect combination of holiday and home in one. The interior is so stylish and cosy that it is an inspiration for your redecorating plans. The staff is so warm, welcoming and helpful that they feel like family. And the view... That is just the cherry on the cake.

We stayed in one of the two bed apartments. Mandy and her team looked after us very well, organising cabs and restaurant bookings. The honesty bar is a great feature. Staff all great. Lovely lunches. Views to die for. Can't think of a better place to stay on this beach.
