“Just about OK”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a self contained apartment here. It was right by the road and quite noisy but very central for the beach and restaurants. The apartment was tired and a bit shabby, but everything worked. We didn't use the pool as it was a bit of a walk. The good thing was that the reception staff were really helpful with their advice and with booking taxis etc.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms by the road!

We stayed here in a studio overlooking the pool. It was o.k but not as nice as other photos showed but it was convenient for the seafront. However We are a retired couple and in spite of the lovely beach area we found it to be a young persons place. We were there over a weekend and the restaurants were so busy and noisy we could hardly get in or hear ourselves speak for the noise of excited young people.
The people at the resort were very helpful and friendly and the studio was cleaned every day except Sunday. Good value if you like a busy area with lots of bars etc.

I had such a great time in Cape Town and my week at the Camps Bay Resort made for a very relaxing start to the holiday. The room I was put in originally I didn't like (bit of a funny lay out) and so the staff moved me to another room straight away. My new room was amazing and the staff couldn't have been more helpful about it all. The room was clean and had everything you would expect and need for a self catering holiday. The pool and grounds are lovely and very clean and tidy and had such a nice vibe to the place. You are very close to the beach and all the great bars and restaurants Camps Bay has to offer. Nice touch with the delivery food service as well. Excellent all round and can't wait to stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view if possible, very nice to wake up to!

I stayed at Camps bay around two years ago, so my review may be out of date but we found the apartment perfect for our needs. It's right on the sea front, with Table Mountain behind.... the area really is incredible, and a great base point for touring the surrounding area's. Premi Piatti (sp) was lovely for breakfast lunch or dinner, and the cocktails in Jam Jars go down well too! The Raj is also very nice for dinner. The staff at the hotel were brilliant and really were a huge help!

Would love to be going back soon!

We stayed in a studio apartment with 2 young children , excellent location was right across the road from the beach & easy for the kids to get to. The bathroom was a bit old & taps difficult to use. Difficult to eat out at night on the main road as there is no entertainment area in any restaurants for kids. Friendly & helpful staff

The Park Studios run the group are excellent for couples, close to the beach, restaurants and shops, with a pool and area for sunbathing. They are cleaned and serviced very well each day (except Sunday) and the staff are extremely friendly and efficient. We have stayed there for three weeks each year for five years and have always been very happy. We do some cooking in the little kitchenette but the restaurants by the beach are such good value that we normally eat out. There is also a braai (barbeque) facility and it's wonderful when the staff arrive to do the washing up ! We recommend it but other people prefer the rooms by the main office, so each to his own.

Room Tip: Rooms 1, 2 and 3 at Park Studios are the best in my view, we have booked Studio 3 for next February...

We were booked at 12 Brighton Court. The pictures on the website were very deceiving. The style of the room was very industrial with a basin that was virtually impossible to use. The floors were very dirty upon arrival and had not been swept or cleaned. It was definitely not a 3 star grading. I did then find out that some of the other rooms at Brighton Court had been recently renovated, but not the one that I was currently booked to stay in. My view, is that until the apartment has been refurbished and renovated, the apartment should not be advertised. We upgraded to The Glen, which was so much more better. The Glen is rated as a 4 star and was worlds apart from so called "3 star" Camps Bay Resort. In this regard, I must complement the staff of Village and Life for making the move as hassle-free as possible. If ever you would like to stay in Camps Bay, please consider The Glen and The Crystal. for slightly more money you get so much more value out of these apartments. They are modern, and beautifully furnished with neat modern bathrooms.

Dear Kashmira

We thank you for your feedback and compliments on the service within our group. We do try our very best to satisfy all our guests.

The Glen (4 Star), The Crystal Apartments (4 Star), The Bay Hotel (5 Star), The Camps Bay Resort (3 Star) and Bay Villas was offered to the entire wedding party of which you specifically chose 12 Brighton Court (2 bedroom sea facing sleeps 6).

The apartment has been renovated and the interior and design of this apartment is “Industrial” with its open loft bedroom. The pictures as well as the description of the apartment are on our website and up to date. We will definitely be looking into the position of the basin which I gather is the basin in the loft room that you are referring to?

Your upgrade at a special rate to The Glen for your last evening would have been earlier if the availability allowed it.

Please do not hesitate in contacting me directly should you have any further feedback or suggestions on manager@campsbaycollection.com

Kind Regards
