We booked a last minute weekend getaway at the Bay Hotel and we got a huge room overlooking the pool deck and Camps Bay beach. Service was excellent and so was the breakfast. The hotel manager made a special effort decorating our room when he found out that we were recently married. We will definitely be returning!

A beautiful hotel on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Town, dwarfed by the extraordinary looming presence of Table Mountain on the other side. Camps Bay is beautiful, trendy and super cool.This delightful hotel is by far the best place to stay there.

Last weekend was our 3rd stay at The Bay Hotel. Service wasn't great - staff in serious need of training. We waited over an hour for a toasted sandwich at the pool only to be told that they couldn't do them at the pool as they were only on the room service menu. Surely the kitchens aren't that far apart...

An absolutely world class experience. From the moment I arrived and was greeted by Sedick, James & Hayden until the final departure. I was really impressed with every aspect of the Hotel. I celebrated my Birthday Dinner in the Bistro and would highly recommend Chef Warwick King's signature menu. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is done with care...

This is a great hotel for location and it had wonderful views. The staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel is worn and slightly grubby. The bathroom needed a deep clean. Tiles in the shower cracked and the loo seat marked and worn. The carpet in the room needed shampooing as there were dirty stains. Parking in the car park...

Not cheap, but a fantastic classy hotel right on the beach in middle of Camps Bay. Quality accommodation, quite chic. Not your modern glass and chrome, but style laden with professional and helpful staff, great food and wine. Nice rooms and sun deck with pools and bar.

The location of the hotel is absolutely fantastic for a base for seeing Cape Town. Set across a road from the beautiful beach, adjacent to a bus stop for trips into Cape Town. The rooms are clean and spacious though nothing particularly special. More than adequate though. We had a view of the lions head mountain, across a cricket pitch...
