“conveniently situated small hotel”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

Within easy walking distance of Camps Bay with its trendy bars, restaurants and shops this is an ideal place to explore both the city and the Cape peninsula. The comfortable rooms come with a sea view and are tastefully furnished. Breakfast (which was very good with excellent choices) can be taken in the dining room or on the small terrace. Helpful and friendly staff with good knowledge of surrounding area.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Hello Vivian
Your short & informative review is just perfect for potential guests - thank you.
Yes, Camps Bay is a perfect base for exploring Cape Town which by car is just 12-15 minutes away. And the Royal is really good value for money, plus having the added advantage of being located in a little village beside the best beach in Cape Town.
Best regards
THE PRIMI ROYAL TEAM :-)

The hotel was comfortable and clean and the staff went out of their way to be helpful in every respect. Cape Town runs a very efficient bus service and the bus stop was right outside the hotel. Our room had its own little patio which made the stay even more pleasant.

Ah Adrian,
Thank you for your review. Once you've experienced Camps Bay, you'll want to come back because it is a gem of a village! And thank you for your other heads up on the shower flow and noisy fan motor in the AC unit. Thankfully our maintenance team sorted it all out. Overall we're happy you enjoyed your stay and you're most welcome to come again!
Kindest regards

Hello Brenda!
Thank you for your review. We're thrilled you enjoyed your 2 week stay! And wasn't it great that we were able to offer you a different view, feel and perspective between middle of the range Classic room and then the Superior room? Almost like going on holiday twice! We loved having you and sincerely hope you do come back sometime.
Kindest regards

Wonderful warm hearted generous staff. Great position, near enough and far enough from City. Accessible to everywhere ... Rooms vary from very good to the excellent seaview with jacuzzi. Something for everyone

This was our 4th stay at the Primi Royal. It's a great location seconds from Camps Bay beach, but also quite high up so provides brilliant views. The staff are all very friendly, the rooms large and the breakfasts are good. We'll be back next time we go to Cape Town.
