The outdoor pool gets great afternoon sun & is refreshing after a day exploring Cape Town or chilling on the nearby beaches. Off-street parking and Wi-Fi is provided free of charge. Afternoon...

Stayed at the Clarendon for our 10 year wedding anniversary and the welcome we received was amazing from being upgraded to a better room to the level of service the staff give. This place is amazing and I highly recommend it. We would definitely return. Thank you everyone there for making our trip so memorable, x

This small hotel has lovely rooms and a wonderful outlook over Bantry Bay. We were able to spot whales and dolphins from our room with...

Small, beautifully designed with very nice staff and wonderful breakfasts. The room itself was really lovely, quite large with incredible views. Traveling on my own, the staff made sure I had all I needed and the location is very good. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

We were on the top floor, which (I notice from previous reviews) makes a huge difference. The view from there of the Atlantic Ocean is stunning, and the massive balcony lets you...
