Amazing place to stay. Awesome views, beautiful rooms and every member of staff couldn't do enough for you. Sandy organised the most fabulous day trips for us and the breakfast team made sure we had plenty of yummy food for the activities that lay ahead. We will definitely be back.

We nestled into our favourite " home away from home" to prepare for our Daughter's Wedding which was taking place just outside Cape Town. Jess, Mitch, Mandy and the fabulous Cape View team pulled out all the stops to make sure our every need was anticipated and met….from printing last minute lists, to sending boxes to extra rails or sore feet…..whatever we needed. They dealt with our Visitors popping in for tea and delicious cakes and drinks and snacks…..All done efficiently and stylishly but most importantly always with a Smile.

Our Family, which ranged in age from 15 - 86 loved every moment of our 10 day stay….and in between the Beautiful Rooms and Outstanding food, we were all loath to leave the comfortable bubble of Cape View but after all was said and done we had to return to the real World until we find another reason to travel to Cape Town and stay at CVC.

Absolutely amazing place to stay! Great service, views and food. My husband and I have stayed here a few times now and it feels like a home away from home. Perfect place to relax in Cape Town and also very close to all the attractions if you feel like leaving the hotel!

Cape View Clifton is simply stunning - the views are to die for, the rooms are beautifully decorated and the service was fantastic - we wish we had been able to stay a little longer as 2 nights wasn't quite enough and were very sad to leave!

A fantastic little hotel sitting above the Clifton beac with great views across the bay. Really friendly staff and a fantastic Breakfast room with friendly and efficient staff every morning. Catering for Breakfast was suer and the location is half way between Ca,ps bay and Cape Town - parking for the car was simple and easy. Rooms were spotless if a little small but as we had a suite we did not really worry about that too much.

Cape View was our first port of call on our week long honeymoon in the Cape - and set the tone for the holiday that was to follow. From the champagne and chocolates in our room, the big vase of beautiful pink proteas and a view that makes all others seem average, we knew that we were in for a major treat. Often you find that a place promises more than it delivers and you can't help but feel a bit nervous that your expectations won't be met and you will be left feeling disappointed. I don't think that this could ever apply to CVC. Go there, safe in the knowledge that you will be met by friendly, warm and professional staff, beautiful views, exceptionally delicious food, extremely comfortable beds (not to mention heavenly pillows) and an overall feeling of comfort and style.

A massive thank you to Jess, Mitch and Mandy and all the kind and lovely staff for making our stay as special as it was - we will remember our holiday - and Cape View - for a very long time to come and will definitely do all that we can to visit again.
