We went there following voyageurs du monde advice, we booked the penthouse and the experience was incredible: great view, great condo and a wonderful experience; the owner did it all to please us: bbq setup on our terrace with no additionnal costs, cocktails free of charge etc. An amazing place!

We just returned (mid-Oct 2012) from 5 nights at the Clarendon Bantry Bay and had a wonderful time! The accomodations and service was truly memorable - we were a group of 5 and each of us felt like we were treated like family. Shirley the property owner was wonderful - as were the house staff, Noel, David and Annabelle. The breakfast served with the amazing view was something we looked forward to waking up to each day. The property location was perfect (close proximity to all we wanted to see and do) - we had rented a car and at first was a little unsure if it was going to be difficult to get around and park but with the help of the GPS and staff we were just fine! We would definitely recommend the Clarendon to anyone visiting Cape Town.

Room Tip: Pool level room was very private.

Over seven years I've had the pleasure of staying at the Clarendon Bantry Bay more than a dozen times -- yes, I *highly* recommend it!! The house itself seems to get more luxurious every time I visit, and my experience with the staff has been consistently positive. It's a warm, serene environment, yet very convenient to the bustling shops in Sea Point, as well as the beach and restaurants in Camps Bay. My only hesitation in giving it this well-deserved glowing review is that it might be fully booked next time I want to stay! :-D

What an amazing and unforgettable experience staying at the Clarendon Bantry Bay!! The rooms are large, clean, bright, modern and exceptionally comfortable. The view of the ocean is breathtaking. The staff are excellent. Service was attentive but unobtrusive and nothing was ever too much trouble. Breakfast was fresh, plentiful and made to order. We overlooked the ocean as we ate breakfast and/or had afternoon tea. The location is perfect. We stayed 9 nights in this amazing hotel. There was a mini fridge and kettle in our room. The staff would offer to make us coffee or tea in the dining area, or to prepare and deliver it to our room, even after hours. The location is very safe, near the seaside, with lots of restaurants and shops nearby, and close to the route of the two sightseeing buses. There are plenty of taxis and minibuses in the surrounding area. We regularly walked to Camps Bay, Clifton Beach and Sea Point. We can't say enough about this gem. We highly recommend it.

I recently stayed at the Clarendon and had the most wonderful stay. It is located conveniently, with amazing views of the ocean. It is within walking distance of beautiful beaches, restaurants and shops, and is only a quick cab ride into the city center. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you have a pleasant stay, and are really knowledgeable about the area and sightseeing you can partake in. Reading a previous post I see their was an issue with the internet, but I can say that when I was there it worked perfectly, and I was even able to Skype from my laptop (strong internet connection need to do this). I would stay at the Clarendon again in a heartbeat.

A quiet part of town with magnificent views. Staff are welcoming and hospitable. This hotel has been well thought out and attention to details shows. From heated floors in the bathrooms, to breathtaking views and private balconies, it is lovely.
