Reviewed 14 May 2013

My son and I stayed at Cape View Clifton for 4 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The location was perfect - close to the beaches, town and the waterfront. The view was absolutly breathtaking. We had a delicious beautifully presented breakfast each morning.Cape View is tastefully and comfortable decorated. We will definitely be back as we loved the entire experience. Well done and many thanks for an awesome stay

Undoubtedly one of the best boutique hotels we have ever visited. The location and views were magnificent, the staff, food and service were exceptional. Beautifully appointed rooms and bathrooms. Highly recommended.

The hotel is more expensive than average but the experience is worth it. The rooms are exceptionally large. Our room had a walk-in wardrobe and a large and light bathroom with a magnificent view over the ocean. A very spacious balcony opens to the view of the atlantic and you feel like you could spend your entire life just enjoying the atmosphere. I assume it is the same for most, if not all rooms. Staff is extremely helpful and not intrusive. The overall feel is very home-like and relaxed, and the 360* endless view with the ocean rumbling in the background makes it very special.

We have visited Cape Town three times and each time stayed in different hotels or guest houses. For our third and longest visit (5 nights) we decided on Cape View Clifton and are so very glad we did! We were a group of four (two couples) and stayed in the self catering apartment. The apartment was furnished with everything we needed, was immaculately clean with lots of storage for our clothing and very comfortable beds. The moment we stepped on to our private deck we were stunned by the amazing view of the ocean, beaches and the Twelve Apostles mountains! Just breathtaking! Our first night there we actually cancelled dinner reservations so we could grill steaks on our deck, play cards and enjoy the sunset and a glass of wine. Mitch and the entire staff were very helpful. My husband and I had his parents with us from the U.S. and we wanted to show them as much of Cape Town as we could. At Mitch's suggestion we took them to the Cape of Good Hope, had a great time with lots of wonderful photo ops. We would not have known to go there if not for his good advice. If we get back to Cape Town there is no doubt that we will book with Cape View Clifton. Outstanding, just outstanding!

My partner and I spent four nights at Cape View and had the most amazing time. We have had the chance to stay at lots of luxury boutique hotels around the globe, but Cape View might just take the crown for our favourite place.

Even before we arrived, Mitch was really helpful. We had never been to Cape Town before so he sent a list of great restaurants and booked some tables for us during our stay. (This is definitely worthwhile organising as February is a pretty busy period). .

The suite we had was absolutely outstanding, huge and the most stunning, breathtaking views of Clifton Beaches and the twelve apostles! The suite was very well laid out with a massive walk-in closet so it doesn't feel like you're living out of a suitcase... Loved the luxurious but understated furnishings and nice big comfortable bed.

The staff were all really helpful and welcoming (lovely South African hospitality). Nothing was ever a problem for the staff and it was always "a pleasure" to help us. Breakfasts were delicious with a wide variety of drinks, pastries, and a warm special every day.. During the day and night a self-catering honesty system worked really well if we wanted drinks or snacks.

Congrats! Looks like the team has got off to a fantastic first few months. If we come back to Cape Town, hopefully they won't get too popular and not have a room for us!
