The Compass House Hotel is a lovely, quiet property, with great ocean views, a lovely pool, delicious breakfasts, and very attentive staff. From the moment we arrived, the staff looked after all of our needs and made us feel at home. Our room, No. 9, was dead quiet at night and very comfortable. The fresh fruits, local jams, fresh baked breads, and fresh squeezed juices were a great way to start each day. It's a short (10 minute) walk to the nearest Hop-on, Hop-off Bus stop, which is a great way to get an overview of Cape Town, the V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain, and Camps Bay. For longer distances, we used a Compass House recommended driver, Embrahim, who was fabulous. He was available whenever we needed to go somewhere and provided a great deal of background and history on Cape Town and the surrounding area.
We had two minor complaints: a lack of sufficient outlets for charging our electronics and the honor bar system. There was only one functioning outlet in the room, making it challenging to keep phones, camera batteries, etc. charged. The honor bar system allows other guests to charge items to your room. Upon check in, we noticed we had purchased a bottle of champagne and yet we had just barely come through the door. With the exception of those minor complaints, we would highly recommend this property if you are staying in Cape Town or the Bantry Bay area.
