First time trip to Cape Town

Can someone help me with advice on where to stay in Cape Town?

We have 4 nights before we hire a car to do the garden route. I found a lovely hotel at seapoint but now I have been told it is unsafe to walk around cape town at night. Would this mean we would only be able to get a taxi to a restaurant in town and then back again. Would it therefore be better to stay in a hotel around Long Street or Green market sq with plenty of restaurants and night life close by?

What is camps bay like? Is this a more lively place to stay?
