We recently stayed for four nights. Emmy was wonderful and helpful with her advice. The breakfast is excellent. The staff are very good and ready to assist. The gardens are beautiful. Afternoon tea was much enjoyed and always delicious. The standard of accommodation is excellent, however, I would suggest getting a room away from the road as ours was quite...

Despite having to move rooms after one night ( room 22 lovely balcony, quiet, nice bathroom) to 10, much bigger by pool but underneath breakfast room, we enjoyed a wonderful stay and echo other reviews. Emmy, super helpful and bubbly and advised on restaurants, taxis and things to see. Staff very polite and cheerful and smiley! Grounds and 2 pools...

Emmy and her staff provide first class service in a beautiful setting. The accommodations are very comfortable, spacious and welcoming, but don't plan on staying indoors often with so many things to do and see while in Capetown. We stayed in a family suite, complete with a separate bedroom for the children, a large modern bath and pretty patio overlooking...

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and the experience we had was more than we could ask for. The hotel is in a good location to explore the cape locations, such as Camps Bay and the Promenade, and a short drive away from the center of Cape Town. The staff was extremely friendly and professional, and they...

The Clarendon Hotel Fresnaye is perfectly situated for a Cape Town sojourn. Close to the 'boardwalk' for exercise, brief taxi-rides (essential at night) for many good restaurants and almost on the tour bus route for sightseeing. But what's best is Emmy's hospitality. Nothing is too much trouble and every guest's needs treated as a serious issue. Her personal approach is...

This is a great guest house / hotel made special by fantastic staff, especially Emmy. We have now stayed twice and hope to be back next year. Rooms are excellent as is breakfast. There is an honesty bar plus complimentary tea and cake in the afternoon. There are 2 small swimming pools and a lovely garden area with sun loungers....

Emma is the most helpful and wonderful manager I have ever encountered in a hotel, nothing is ever too much trouble. I would always recommend a stay here The Accomodation is always very comfortable and well appointed. The sister establishment in Bantry bay is also great with great views but Emma makes it worth missing out on the views just...

We were fortunate that the tour guide we booked recommended the Clarendon to us. The hotel was perfect. Our room was huge, beautifully decorated in an airy white, just right for a tropical climate. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom large and stocked with very nice, natural products. The hotel is small and intimate, great for couples and also...
