I booked a room in Bay View and one in their new guesthouse Atlantic Gold very last minute for a New Year's holiday. Alice and Gerald were wonderful hosts. They arranged a tour of Cape Point for us with an excellent tour guide, made many phone calls on our behalf for reservations, etc., and were full of helpful advice.
The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated. Bay View has a beautiful pool overlooking the ocean, an internet area and lots of space to lounge around. The Aquamarine Suite in Atlantic Gold is huge and modern with an amazing view of the ocean (a 15 minute walk down the hill). At the back of both hotels is an incredible view of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles. There are tons of great restaurants and bars nearby on the main road to the beach- it's very reminiscent of South Beach in Miami! We were about a 45 minute drive from a great wine tour in Stellenbosch and a ten minute taxi ride to the V&A waterfront and City Bowl.
It was an extremely windy week in Cape Town and the only downside is that the room in Bay View was very loud to sleep in. But the beds were so comfortable it didn't end up being much of a problem. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone- a couple, family, etc. and plan on staying here again. It was only 1/3 the cost of other guesthouses in the area and Alice & Gerald were **much** friendlier than any of the 30 people I spoke with to find rooms at such short notice!
