“Fantastic place”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I stayed here for a week. It is first class. The place is very clean, the decor pristine, and the service wonderful. I was running a course here. Breakfast and lunch was very good, with the variety at lunch exceptional. If I remember correctly, they brought in a chef, Sean, to do lunch. Each day he would come out and explain what he was doing for us. Cracking!!

I cannot praise the place too highly. Given the security situation in SA, they have a system whereby you can eat at a selection of local restaurants and have it billed to the hotel. No need to carry money/ credit cards about after dark. As a conference centre, they don't do dinner.

It is right on the beachfront, good for walking about. I walked down to Simonstown to see the penguins at boulder beach. That is recommended.

I stayed here on business for about ten days. The hotel is spotlessly clean, run by wonderful staff, and with excellent meals. It's also about a two minute walk to the beach. If what you value is a quiet, well-managed hotel experience, then this is the right place. One can see that the staff take pride in their work, and it shows in every little detail.

This hotel is rated as four star and it would be difficult to disagree with this. By European standards the public space is less than four star but everything else ranks. The hotel is professionally run and the staff are friendly and efficient, possibly a bit overattentive at times but that is purely a personal preference. Rooms are immaculate, spacious and clean with some nice touches including coffee and free wi-fi. Bathroom is modern and nicely presented. The hotel only serves breakfast which is adequate especially on the days when it is cooked to order. There is an excellent restaurant across the road and two further restaurants within 100 meters. We stayed at the hotel for nine days and enjoyed every one of them, highly recommended if you visit Fish Hoek.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing False Bay, on the top floor

Our experience at Calders was perhaps the best we ever had at a hotel. The entire facility was spotless, food was great, and the service was unbelieveable! The staff became our friends over our two week stay and we look forward to seeing them again next year. The Manager, Martine, did whatever it took to provide us what we needed. She even recomended a place to get married!

Beach is right across the street and great restaurants in the area. Don't miss staying at Calders if your trip brings you to Cape Town!

The Calders hotel is one of the best places I have stayed at. The staff know you by name and treat you like one of the family. The rooms are clean and quiet and the quality of bed sheets etc. is first class.

I stayed here for 2 weeks and it was a sad day when I had to leave.
