We spent two nights at Compass House in Bantry Bay this past weekend. From the service, to the decor, to the food, level of detail in the hospitality and comfort of the rooms, Compass House was absolutely 5 star. I would recommend this boutique hotel to anyone looking for peaceful, stylish accommodation on Cape Town's coastline.

We spend three nights at this lovely hotel. We arrived and were warmly greeted by Lisa, with a welcome drink. Our room was fabulous with sea views. Compass House has a great pool and sitting area. Early evening, it is really nice sitting up on the terrace with a sundowner. Super breakfast. Very easy to get into town.
