Took a week off to spend some quality time with my wife, and I guess I couldn't choose a better place than this.
Fantastic view, right in front of the beach, friendly staff, good facilities, plenty of options for activities (indoor and outdoor), and the breakfast, was just.............. I guess amazing would be the word.
The rooms are quite big with a jacuzzi, which one could be in, while just contemplating the view outside.
The hotel has good range of activities to be done, and we chose to do a couple's massage, and that was indeed a pretty relaxing time while sharing it with your loved one.
Unfortunately Wi-Fi connectivity wasn't the best, and there are a very limited choice of TV channels available. It did not spoil our week anyway.
To close the week, we even had the pleasure of shaking hands and taking a picture with action hero movie star's Dolf Lundgren... So, a week to remember.

We ended up walking into the hotel at 6pm hoping for a room after turning up at our private villa we had booked which the owner had sold and didn't make us aware there was no private villa!
We took the last sea view room which was beautiful. The hotel is very nautical and our room was a lovely size with a huge bed and steps down to a separate seating area with a balcony over looking the beach.
Breakfast was lovely with a continental buffet and also waiter service for a hot breakfast.
We also ate in the hotel the first night which was truly beautiful food. It was one of our favourite meals in South Africa and we are lucky enough to travel to SA regularly.
The weather wasn't the best to try out the pool but the location is great to get into Cape Town or to travel east and explore.
We stayed in the last room on the right if you are looking at the hotel from the front which was a little noisy due to the bars next door but they did not last all night. The bathrooms were not the largest but did the job required.
The service we received from all the staff was also exceptional so pleased our first booking went wrong so we could stay here.

Stayed here for 5 days for a business conference. The room was opulant and the hotel facilities were good. I could imagine that staying here on holiday would be a very pleasent experience!!
Right on the beach, with the Atlantic Ocean crashing against the sand as a lulaby!

Room Tip: Go for one of the Cabanas - room 142 was mine, very nice!!

My experience was not positive. Our room was changed to lower ground floor with restricted view after I have requested a room on a top floor for photography. Champagne arrived 2 hours late.

Room was basic and bathroom below standard.

Cleaning staff were busy till the early hours of the morning on the floor above us....very noisy.

From arrival to departure we were looked after by all the staff at The Bay Hotel. On artival our room was not ready but the staff at the reception made us as comfortable as possible, offered us drinks and snacks but after about a 5 minute wait we were escorted to our room by one of the friendly staff members. The food is great, the views are great and the service is like none other and we thank you for a most memorable holiday. We will definately be back!!!!

Staying on the Atlantic Seaboard side of the mountain was an excellent choice for spring ... The other side of the mountain gets far less sun. We loved our stay .... Warm and friendly but left suitably alone to enjoy our own company. The breakfast deck is a highlight every day and the pool area well appointed. And walk out the gates into the buzz of Camps Bay! We had a mountain view which actually worked out quite well ... The sea facing rooms also face the busy road down below.

This is a beautiful hotel nestled between the twelve apostles and a stunning coastline in Camps Bay. The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were very nicely decorated with very comfortable beds and a stunning view. The selection of fruit in the breakfast buffet was vast and the hot breakfast was always well cooked. There is a good selection of restaurants in Camps Bay. It was such a pleasure to stay in a smaller hotel that is of such a high standard and that has its own identity. A really enjoyable stay and I would definitely return to this hotel.
