What an incredible way to kick off our South African adventure. This boutique hotel is an absolutely perfect place to stay in Cape Town complete with attentive and helpful staff, delicious breakfasts and a view that can not be beat. We chose to spend more time in the hotel just to enjoy some bubbly on our balcony overlooking the ocean...

We stayed here for 5 nights. As we walked into the reception area we were overwhelmed by the stunning view. Our room had the same amazing view so well worth paying for a room with an ocean view. The staff throughout the hotel could not have been more charming and helpful and went the extra mile to make sure our...

Very well located with a beautiful view in a quiet location. Vast and beautifully equipped rooms. Ground floor rooms have limited view. Breakfast choice correct, but nothing special. Staff are friendly and doing a professional work. The head waiter shared most helpful information on restaurants and leisure, visit options for the day. Unfortunately into such a beautiful place, the lady...

My wife and I stayed in the Neptune suite for 4 days during our first visit to Cape Town. It was perfect. Only 2 doors down from the main hotel but it felt very secluded. We had our own kitchen, lounge, walk-in wardrobe, garden and pool with loungers. The entire suite has been done up beautifully and was spotlessly clean....

We stayed there for a week, after a 1.500 km discovery journey we did from Joburg to Cape Town. The Clarendon is a former private residence - still privately owned - turned into a small luxury boutique hotel, located in one of the most upmarket and expensive areas of South Africa. We had one of the two rooms on the...
