Reviewed 16 November 2012

I had a most amazing time, walk to the beach anytime, jog along the beach, being part of the activies and really living CampsBay every minute and that in such great accomodation, spacious, very neat and clean with more than adequate facilites, space and friendly staff. A stay to remember and return to.

Room Tip: The room on the Beach font was just so amazing and I felt spoilt - 2 bedroomed unit - the perfect pl...

The welcome was very welcome and the room was more than we expected. Unfortunately the pool was under repair. Our stay was from the 19 - 22 October 2012, we were in room 302 at The place on the Bay which was self catering the security is very good and we were very impressed overall. Highly recommended.

Was my first time in cape town and I'm glad I chose this hotel. My wife was happy with the hotel too. We were at room 408 at "Fairways on the Bay", which is a bit different from "Place on the Bay". It's the next building. Fairways has a cottage feel to it. Carpeting, wall paper and nicely done interiors. This room probably has the best view. You can see the beach and Table Mountain. Also has easy and safe parking if you have a rental car. The restaurant manager in the mornings - Francesco is a very friendly and we got some helpful tips from him. The staff is very friendly and helpful in general. My only complaint was the wi-fi. The hotel is a hotspot of a company called Red Button that charges on amount of data used. I don't know how it happens, but I seemed to use up 100MB of data in a matter of an hour, whether it was on my iPhone or the Mac. Didn't download stuff, didn't youtube or anything like that. Also spoke to the customer service of red button but they were just diplomatic.

There were a couple of nights when it was very windy and the balcony door didn't seem to be secured tight enough . So it was rattling

However, I'd like to stay in this hotel again because the location is amazing and the hotel offers good quality rooms with good staff.

Room Tip: Room 408 at Fairways on the Bay is probably the only room like itself. Amazing view - you can see th...

We stayed here on the weekend of 12 - 14 October. On arrival, all staff was extremely helpful in booking us in and carrying our luggage to our room. The weather was perfect, the rooms were clean, everything was in working order and the beds were comfortable. oh yes....and a plus was the little security gate at the top of the stairs......preventing sleep walkers from falling down the stairs......

Perhaps the bigger rooms are better, but our studio room was small, did not have the promised view but did have lots of signs of wear and tear - no working plugs in the sinks, for example. The hotel is odd - no common areas, a reception that's tucked away and a real feeling of anonymity. With a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, we were rung to make sure we really didn't wan to be disturbed, waking us from a much needed sleep. But the staff we did see were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Avoid the studio rooms

It was my first time in Cape Town and the hotel impressed me, not only by the facilities but also by the well educated staff. I spent an amazinh week where the hotel staff supported me with all the arrangements for doing sightseeing and at the same time we had a blast using the swimming pool with a beautiful view of the bay. It's worth in all senses.

We stayed here for 3 nights early in spring and had an enjoyable stay. The location is fantastic - almost on Camps bay beach and not far away from the city centre and other attractions. We had a studio room which consisted of a large double bed, a well sized kitchen which was fully equipped, bathroom, lounge area and an outside patio. The views were great, beach on one side and the mountains behind us. The property is starting to look a bit dated. However there are good special offers that you can find which suited us well. There is also a restaurant on site and we throughly enjoyed the breakfasts there. The hotel is also just meters away from the numerous bars, cafes and restaurants in Camps Bay.
