“Unbelievable Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in October and were so pleased. We also chose this place because of all the great reviews on trip advisor and we were not disappointed. We really loved this place. The room was spectacular, awesome views, and a lovely balcony to sit and sip some wonderful South African wines. There is no restaurant so you do have to go out or arrange for dinner/lunch ahead of time. You pretty much have to get a taxi everywhere but we found them very inexpensive and Mitch and the staff were very helpful in arranging anything you might need. A couple of nights, I just wanted to stay and enjoy this great place without going out, so they had a list of take out places that you could have something delivered which was wonderful. It was a very relaxing place, very beautiful, the breakfast was awesome and the staff was really excellent. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. It is a must stay if you are in Capetown. I would definately stay here again. Thanks Mitch and crew for a wonderful stay!

Our family of four stayed in the Clifton 5 Oct16-20. From the website and tripadvisor reviews our expectations were extremely high. And we were not disappointed.

Cape View is a beautiful breath of fresh air. From the stunning views of the Twelve Apostles that take your breath away, to first class breakfasts, to exemplary service and support from Mitch and his team... We will definitely return!

I must admit I was initially a bit surprised at the size of the Clifton 5. It seemed much smaller than it appeared on the website but once I got past this it felt like home away from home. We thoroughly enjoyed our personal hot tub sipping champagne as the sun set over the ocean.

This will be the place I hold in my memory whenever I need a zen moment. Sitting on the main balcony overlooking the ocean and those incredible peaks with a cup of delicious coffee in the morning.. Magic. Pure magic.

A good value for money although not cheap. Outstanding location, view and rooms. Need a car if you wish to enjoy the area. Enjoy specially rooms 1A 2A and 3A. Céleste's breakfasts deserves a special mention.

My wife and I had a exceptional two day stay. The experience from the staff was highly professional and friendly. The environment was a homely great treat. We definitely are coming back for more and more.

Probably the best boutique hotel we've stayed in anywhere. Decor, views, service all 1st class. My wife, 4 month old baby and I stayed in a deluxe suite and it was excellent. Didn't get to look at any other rooms but if I went again would book the suite again.

My Fiance and I stayed here on the night I proposed to her in March. When we think back to that day all she talks about is 'cape View Clifton', nevermind the fact that I proposed ;) but I think that sums up this hotel , It really is beyond anything you can think of, the views, the luxury, the service , it was worth every cent. We arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by a friendly manager who said ' you two look like you floating on cloud 9', we told him we had just got engaged and that promted cape View clifton to just go that extra mile for us by sending champagne up to the room that night and ensuring we had the most romantic room there. Thanks so much for that. So if you have the cash, dont go anywhere els in cape town.

My friends and I had the most wonderful two nights at Cape View. The website is beautiful and created such high expectations and all I can say is that it does not even begin to do the place justice. The views are out of this world, every room is immaculate and designed to perfection. Even the smallest details have been thought out to make guests feel comfortable and pampered. Each and every staff member was so friendly and eager to help at every moment and to top it all off the breakfast buffet and hot special was absolutely divine. The only fault to the entire weekend was that it did not last long enough. Well done Cape View Clifton! Superb!
