After much thought, probably the best thing about staying at the Chapman's Peak Hotel was the fantastic service that I received from every member of staff throughout the duration of my stay. Whether it was reception giving advice on local attractions, the bar staff who soon learned my favourite drinks, or the restaurant team who made sure every meal felt like a special occasion.
Rooms were amazing; spotless, well-stocked, spacious, and the sea views from the penthouse were truly breathtaking, one of the best memories of my entire trip. As a solo traveller, the hotel was also a great location for meeting new people, and the friendliness of the locals and other guests really added to my overall enjoyment and made me feel quickly at ease.
Location was also perfect. Hout Bay provides the perfect haven away from the pace and bustle of Cape Town, great walks next to the sea (whale watching in season), and plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to explore. However, with the city centre and Constantia wine route only half an hour away, you will never have the opportunity to be bored!
I could not finish my review without giving specific mention to the restaurant. This served hands down the best food I had during my 2 weeks in Cape Town (which is high praise indeed), and the service, décor and ambience were also exceptional. No visit could be complete without sampling the calamari and Portuguese steak!
When I next return to Cape Town I will not be considering staying anywhere other than the Chapman's Peak Hotel.
