This was our first trip to South Africa and we loved it. The hotel made a great impression from the start. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a beautiful and spacious room overlooking the bay. From our lovely balcony we could watch life on the beach but the road between it and the hotel was largely hidden from view. It would be worth paying for the upgrade but I’m sure the view at the back would be good, too. We arrived early morning and the room wasn’t ready, but there’s a changing room so we could get out of our travel clothes and sit by the pool. The Bistro does lovely lunches and you can buy cakes to take to your room, which we did. We spent some hours in the afternoons on our balcony enjoying the cake, complimentary tea and coffee, and the view. This was particularly good on the windy days we had there – and it can get very windy (late February), but that didn’t interfere with anything we wanted to do. All members of staff were great and we had excellent recommendations for dinner (Codfather, Gold & Zen Zero), and there was no hesitation in organising trips for us. The breakfasts were lovely and the staff, again, brilliant. We were greeted by name and every effort was made to ensure we enjoyed our stay in the area. The hotel has two fantastic bars and a wonderful location, right by more excellent bars and restaurants. I could go on, but just read other reviews. Suffice to say, we don’t often go to the same place twice, but we do hope to visit the Bay Hotel again.
