We had a wonderful overnight stay. Beautiful views, super relaxing. I however did find the hotel staff's service a bit lacking, except for Amos who took great care of us while we relaxed on the deck.

Still a classic. Great positioning; good food and service. Dean's upstairs bar deserves a mention for great service.

Beautiful restaurant with an amazing view of Camps bay. The food is out of this world. I ordered Red Roof Sushi Compliments to the sushi Chef Ashley... Best sushi in cape Town by FAR. We also ordered chicken strips and chips with a fantastic sauce beef sauce, Greek salad and my son enjoyed his chocolate milkshake.... The restaurant Staff is extremely friendly and have great recommendations,adding to this we had a professional waiter Carlos, always had a smile and adds great service, awesome ambiance. BIG THANK YOU TO THE BISTRO @THE BAY. WILL BE BACK CAMPBELL FAMILY.

I was a guest twice but frequently go for brunch. Its a sickening view of Clifton and quite a good hotel. Its a pretty penny that will be very well spent. The rooms are good, the food is great and the beach is just across the street. You have bars, restaurants, supermarkets and everything you need around.Great spot and close to it there is a bar nowadays that in the old times was the oldest drugstore in the world.

Room was pretty cool it was very warm and comforting, very clean with a little seating area- beautiful view. Lovely breakfast buffet, buffet staff were great, specially the manager- she put in that bit of effort no-one else did. The general staff were not so pleasant to be around, they looked bleak mostly. Warning to all- if you do not wish to be disturbed, do not forget to put the "do not disturb" sign up :)

Lovely hotel situated in the centre of the beautiful Camps Bay area of Cape Town. Friendly, approachable and professional staff. Table Mountain view rooms face away from the pool and are peaceful. If opting for one of these rooms I would suggest requesting a room further down the corridor, not rooms 04 and 06, as the view from these rooms is hindered by the sight of an air con vent.Also, check out their sister hotel, Camps Bay Retreat, which hosts an excellent BBQ on Wednesdays and Saturdays. In short, good food, multiple pools, great staff, good cocktails. We would happily return to the Bay Hotel.

My Husband and I spent 4 lovely nights at the Bay Hotel as part of our honeymoon. We had originally booked the Table Bay Hotel by the Waterfront, but after doing some more research we wanted to stay in Camps Bay. We switched to this hotel and are so thankful we did. The staff are amazing, in particular Sedick. The advice he offered us whilst we were there was fantastic and his recommendations in restaurants were fabulous (my partner and I are quite the foodies too and we can be tough critics when it comes to dining and wine). The hotel has lovely generous size rooms, a daily buffet breakfast in a beautiful natural lit room overlooking the beach, a day spa, a bar with a warm fireplace to enjoy a glass or red or nightcap and a great pool (unfortunately the weather was drizzly during our stay so we were unable to make use of it, however we will be back to do so). It is also located directly opposite the beach, surrounded by some great cafe's and spots to enjoy a cocktail and watch the stunning sunsets over the water. I think Camps Bay is the nicest way to experience Cape Town and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. We can't wait to return to The Bay Hotel :)

Me and my better half Karen have just returned home to England after a truly memorable and wonderful time staying 12 nights.Having not been to South Africa before and only having a brief outline of what we wanted to do on our trip it was important for us to get the best advice possible.Hotel manager Sedick a great guy gave us so much good advice and went out of his way to make sure our itinerary ran to plan so we made the best use of our time.The staff are always lovely,nothing is ever too much trouble,service with a smile always.The Hotel is a pleasant environment to be and boasts many well known visitors for good reason.The artwork on display throughout adds a nice touch to the interior design plus the added addition of the many motorcycles on display might seem quirky but it works very well.Everything else has been thought through.The rooms are spacious and comfortable,i like the chill out area and balcony,the views over Camps bay really are breathtaking especially from the dining area. Every morning at Breakfast we really did feel we were in paradise,even on a couple of Misty mornings.Food is excellent with choice for even the most picky eaters.Again staff helpful and friendly.Outside there is a pool and deck area,plus a Gym and Spa, a couple of bars and the Bistro restaurant.The Hotel has conference facilities and on our final night we saw a Wedding party arrive with everybody happily taking pictures.We hope to return in the near future,we just fell in love with Cape Town.
