We stayed at The Bay Hotel for 5 nights over Christmas 2007 with our three teenage children and had the best time. Upon arrival we were a little bit disappointed with the rooms, although very comfortable and with fab views of the beach, the bathrooms were rather tired, and so were the towels and bathrobes etc. However, everything else made up for it. The staff were without exception lovely and very helpful, the restaurant was good and not too expensive, and the breakfast was outstanding. The bar prices were very reasonable, which meant we used them rather a lot ! The mini bar was very reasonable as well. The Hotel car and driver was also not much more than taxis. The views were great, and we loved the beach and felt very safe, but we aware that there is a busy road between the hotel and the beach. There are loads of good restaurants nearby, and Camps Bay is a very lively place, wonderful for people watching. As other people have said, perhaps not totally deserving of five stars, but still a hotel to be recommended. We would definitely go back there as opposed to staying at the Waterfront, though that is a great place to go for shopping and restaurants.
