My wife and I had the distinct pleasure of spending three nights at the Cape View in early July. The property is immaculate, quiet, intimate, and far from hotel-like. Quality touches abound including a turndown surprise that we still laugh about. Mitch and his staff were professional, friendly, discrete, and very, very helpful. We wanted to take the "breakfast ladies" home with us. Restaurant recommendations were spot on as were shopping suggestions. The pictures don't do the CV justice, especially the views of Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles, and incredible sunsets over the Atlantic. Other than the animals in Kruger NP, the CV was the highlight of our trip to SA. You can pay a lot more for a place in Cape Town, but you won't find a more pleasurable one than the Cape View.

We have just spent ten days staying at Cape View in Clifton, Cape Town. We came to watch our son play rugby and our tour company recommended Cape View. Think of any superlative and it will apply to this wonderful, beautiful, place. The views over Clifton beaches, Camp Bay and the Twelve Apostles are stunning. The decor is white and fresh with sumptuous bed linen and cushions but with touches of warm African design that make the atmosphere homely and welcoming. The bed was deliciously comfortable, the towels soft and fluffy and as the weather was chilly at night we even got hot water bottles at turn down. Jess, the owner is young and eager to please. She spent six years training in London and is a talented business woman and interior designer. Mitch, the manager acted as our personal advisor on what to do and where to visit. He also organised a wonderful mystery tour of restaurants each night and booked numerous taxis during our stay. Breakfast was a feast of fresh juices or smoothies, muesli concoctions, deliciously fresh fruit and every possible combination of cooked delights. All the food was cooked to perfection by our lovely breakfast ladies who also made us packed lunches when we needed them. Although Cape View doesn't provide formal lunches or dinners a chef can be arranged if required. However, we only had one night when we didn't eat out and we ordered an excellent takeaway to be delivered. We felt very safe at Cape View as the security staff were on duty day and night. Parking was convenient directly opposite the property. The staff were the friendliest and most consistently helpful that we've ever encountered and the cleanliness of the whole accommodation has to be seen to be believed. We were so sorry to leave a group of people who we feel have become friends and what was one of the best locations we have ever stayed. We were tempted not to write a review and to keep this place to ourselves but that wouldn't be fair to Jess, Mitch and all the fantastic staff. We just hope there will be space for us to come back in the future!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 1 which was huge with a large terrace looking over the ocean. But we were given a guided tour of all the rooms and the apartments. They are all very similar with wide views of the Cape and sea. We would be happy to stay in any of them.

We are on the third day of a long and privileged stay at Cape View Clifton. Room 5 is exceptional with views that you would never tire from. Each staff member has a unique personality that when combined serves to exceed our every expectation. We will write again as our stay unfolds. Thank you, Warren, Delleni and Ocean.

My son and I stayed at Cape View Clifton for 4 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect - close to the beaches, town and the waterfront. The view was absolutly breathtaking. We had a delicious beautifully presented breakfast each morning.Cape View is tastefully and comfortable decorated. We will definitely be back as we loved the entire experience. Well done and many thanks for an awesome stay
