I recently returned to the Clarendon in Bantry Bay. It is my Guest House of choice in Cape Town. A home from home. If you want to stand on a balcony or lay at the pool breathing in champagne air, then this is where to be. The sunrises and sunsets from your room are magnificent.

I am sorry but I cannot quote rates for Clarendon Bantry Bay. I am just a traveler, you will need to contact them directly. I did throughly enjoy my stay there and hope that you do as well. Safe travels.

You cannot walk to table mountain - better to have a car or use uber - stunning view of sea and could walk to beach but better to drive. The concierge service - very helpful as it is small and personable and they aim to please. You can view the rooms and request your room and there may be a price difference between sea and non sea view! Have a great time --
