“Excellent location -easy to get around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights on final leg of a tailor made South African family trip.
You cant go to South Africa and not see Cape Town - it is beautiful!
Chose the suites as they are on the wonderfully scenic coast between Hout Bay and Cape Town.
Could not fault the hotel - it was a perfect base for our needs.
5 minutes by car from the V and A waterfront ( or 4 stops on the hop on hop off bus)
We bought a 2 day bus pass which took us everywhere we wanted to go.
Ate at Sauls (just around the corner near the Spar) on the first 2 evenings- excellent value for money.

We stayed at this property on the first leg of our South African holiday and it was a brilliant start. The rooms were clean and cozy with great ocean views. The breakfast was quite good and the staff were especially nice, right from reception to restaurant to room service. The only two negatives: tight parking and compact size of rooms (considering we were in a room with 2 children).

All in all, great location, great facilities and great price. Will definitely be back here if we travel to Cape Town!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this property. Th size of the hotel meant a lot of personalisation and the staff were always so helpful and friendly. The breakfast which was inluded was excellent. The minibar was only stocked on request. What I found great was that they had built in plugs for all countries at the workstations so no adaptors necessary for my Australian plugs! I had a penthouse suite over two floors and two bathrooms. At the front I had gorgeous ocean views and at the back I had a sun terrace overlooking the mountain. Fantastic alll around, except perhaps that there was no gym facility? The food in the restaraunt for dinner was always of high quality and reasonably priced as well.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2010

We stayed here for three nights on our first leg of our holiday in South Africa and it did not disappoint. We had a large room, split across two levels. Downstairs was a bathroom, kitchen & dining area, lounge with a TV, a writing desk and a balcony. There was also a cupboard which offered ample storage space. Upstairs was another bathroom, a large bedroom with a dresser, wall mounted TV, and even more storage space. We found the space and layout very comfortable and having two bathrooms was useful.

The room was clean, but it could be cleaner...the window sills were quite dusty and had not been cleaned for a few weeks at least, for example. Fortunately that was as bad as it got, with everything else being spotless.

The hotel also has decent Wi-Fi and secure parking, as well as a pool area and a bar.
We were however slightly annoyed when we could not use the bar and pool areas during the last day of our stay because of a private business event. We understand this hotel caters mainly to business customers but since we were customers as well we expect to be able to use the hotel's facilities. We did speak with reception regarding this and they sent us room service at no extra charge, which was fair.

The staff were very friendly and very helpful (which is refreshingly common in South Africa), they were always arranging taxis and making reservations for us.

For the price we paid we feel it gives excellent value for money. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this to anyone looking for a hotel in the Bantry Bay area of Cape Town.

This is a really nice hotel, but unfortunately we found 2 roaches in the bathroom during our 3-night stay. The room we were in was on two levels, with full bathroom, kitchenette and living area on the first level, large bedroom and other full bathroom on second level. The room was nice, great view, but bathrooms looked a bit old.
The buffet breakfast was good. The hotel staff was very friendly. Nice, although small, pool area.
The hotel is close to restaurants and not far from the beach.
If it wasn’t for the bugs, I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

We stayed at the Bantry Bay Suites Hotel for our last 3 nights in South Africa. The rooms were large and included all amenities that we could want. There was both a tub and a shower in the large bathroom. There was a safe in the room and cooking facilities should you care to eat in. The hotel is only one block away from the ocean, where there is a lovely walkway. The hotel staff was very helpful and pleasant. There is a business center with computers - 50R for one hour (the time can be used over several days). We ate dinner at the Opal Lounge one evening and it was a fantastic dining experience. The taxi to town cost about 65R each way.
