“This is the Place to Stay in Cape Town”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Chapmans Peak is a gem. I stayed for 1 night for business, exceptional. Room 106's view is awesome... love the bathroom and veranda breezes. Recommend turning the AC off and opening the veranda slider to capture the fresh breezes... The breakfast is also a very rich experience and surprisingly the coffee was right up there in the best I have had in South Africa to date. Get out of the city and get yourself to Hout Bay for the real experience of Cape Town has to offer..... I can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Room Tip: Only book sea view room - it would be a crime to book a garden view when at this seaside hotel.

The room was beautiful with an amazing sea view, breakfast was delicious and not to mention the mouth-watering calamari we had for dinner! DEFINITELY the best in Cape Town!

I look forward to staying over again very soon!

We had a great holiday in South Africa in February. We stayed at Chapmans Peak Hotel for the whole trip. The accomodation was excellent - we had a room with a sea view and the busy gastro pub type restaurant was very good. There are lost of other places to eat in Hout Bay as well. The pool is quite small and there are only a dozen+ sunbeds but at that time of the year there were plenty of free ones available for an afternoon in the sun! There are lost of places in walking distance of the hotel and Hout Bay is a good base from which to visit lots of places in the Cape area. We had hired a car at the airport but another time we might get a taxi from the airport and just hire a care locally for a few days to do some sightseeing.
We will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are best although if you want to sleep with the window open you might be woken...

i love the location, the rooms are lovely, the staff are great and the food... well, it is the best calamari in cape town! as an old hout bay local, i just loved the feel of being at home again.
i stayed there with my daughter some weeks ago and we both enjoyed the visit.

Chapmans Peak hotel is a lovely place. What to start with ? The room ? Very cosy, contemporary, with a really nice view over Hout Bay beach.. The restaurant ? Simply the best of seafood, in particular the best calamaris in town (as it is usually described !), and also the lobster.. And, as we are french, we consider the wine part very seriously, and we recommend the Chenin Blanc with seafood.. The location ? Chapmans Peak Drive is at your feet, so it's easy to reach (with your own car, no public transport) the wine region (Stellenbosch, via Simon Town) and Cape Point..

Room Tip: Of course the best rooms are those with sea-view.

I travel to Cape Town on business quite often and, after experiencing other venues in the past, now always book in at Chapmans Peak Hotel.
Its location away from the CBD suits me in that Hout Bay has a tranquil, friendly environment in which to unwind after a busy day.
I have stayed in both the old & new sections of the hotel which each have their own special appeal to me.
Their room rates are very reasonable bearing in mind the many factors I take into account when away on business - for me this place has it all !

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room - its well worth a bit extra Rooms 1 & 11 are the best in the older s...
