If you're looking for fabulous views beautiful rooms and amazing service this is it. Very helpful and friendly staff particularly Mandy who cannot do enough for you from booking restaurants, canceling restaurant bookings and arranging cabs she was fantastic. Thoroughly recommend this hotel you won't be disappointed

A wonderful stay, in one of the most beautifully located positions in the Cape. The views are spectacular. Tastefully decorated but the cherry on the top is the staff, all of them are friendly and helpful. Well worth a stay.

This was our second visit to this exceptional boutique hotel and if anything it was better than 2 years ago. The view from most bedrooms is stunning and the standard of comfort superb. Cobus is a very good Manager and it speaks volumes that most of the staff are the same as 2 years ago. Breakfast is varied each day...

All I can say is amazing. From the location overlooking Clifton beaches and Twelve Apostles to service to rooms and the beautiful deck and pool area off the dining room - this is like staying in a wealthy friends home.

We spent four nights at the CVC and I would hands-down recommend it to anyone looking for a special spot in Cape Town. As others have said, the views are jaw-dropping, and the rooms and common areas of the hotel are situated to take advantage of them. Probably the most amazing views I've ever seen. The rooms themselves are just...

My wife and I stayed at CVC for our honeymoon. When we arrived, we saw the dramatic cliff views and knew it was a great property. The hotel is decorated very tastefully- a beautiful beach vibe.

I was a little bit reluctant to book here at first, since you can find accommodation in Cape Town for much less than the Cape View charges. However, the stay was worth every penny. The rooms are very large, comfortable, clean, and beautifully furnished, with views to die for. We spent a lot of time just staring out the window...
