Profile: Camps Bay

Profile: Camps Bay

Camps Bay is Cape Town’s premier tourist hotspot, neatly seated between the sparkling Atlantic Ocean and the rough and rugged Twelve Apostles mountain range. Its star attraction is its palm-fringed beach, where bronzed bodies play volleyball, and swimmers frolic in the warm waves.

Just a short drive from Cape Town’s city center, the village-like suburb boasts its own trendy selection of bars, restaurants, and shops, many of which dot the main drag, Victoria Road. Come sunset you can unwind with a cocktail, and then take your seat for an evening of musicals, cabaret, or comedy, at Theatre On The Bay.

    Beautiful setting, excellent staff and venue.

    The guest house is located about 5 minutes walk from the main strip, with coffee shops, bars and restaurants of Camps Bay/Bakoven within 5-10 mins walk. The setting is stunning with The Apostles just behind the guest house and the sea view in front. The owners and the staff are all friendly and welcoming, with a well stocked "honesty bar", and a buffet breakfast with freshly cooked choices of additional menu items. Camps Bay itself has possibly the best fish restaurant I've ever been to (The Codfather) and a good mix of bars and restaurants, plus a small shopping mall. I stayed in the centre of Cape Town for most of my stay in the area, but enjoyed the couple of days in Camps Bay immensely, and the guest house was an integral part of that.

    Great view from our room and shower!!! Private balcony with bean bag loungers was great. Good location - very easy to walk to restaurants and beach. Delicious cooked breakfast available. Honesty bar was nice although it had run out of white wine when I wanted a glass!!! Staff very amenable although not sure how knowledgeable they were about local information/tips and hints on what to do or where to go/weather forecast etc Really enjoyed our stay here though - lovely contemporary and comfortable accommodation with a small but perfectly adequate pool for cooling off in. Also secure parking was available after prior arrangement.

    Could be a stunning place to stay, but it is not super clean, art work is poor, feeling is of a semi-abandoned gorgeous contemporary home that could, with little effort, be made to be utterly stunning and superior with better on-site management and focus on details. Owner are absentee and it shows.

    Honeymoon in Cape Town

    My wife and I stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our honeymoon in Cape Town. This hotel was amazing. The room in absolutely incredible. The balcony in enormous with a nice hot tub on it and the view is stunning. The service here is first class. We had a late flight in and they had no problem accommodating a late check in for us. We loved the honor bar and the breakfast was excellent. Next time we are in Cape Town we will be staying here again in the same room.

    I stayed 2 nights in the Atlantic room. It was fantastic. The room was huge, modern, clean and had the best view. The house had a sumptuous breakfast and was close to several restaurants and a Woolworth's. The beach was within a 15 minute walk as was the Hop on, Hop off sightseeing bus stop.

    The Best!!

    Checked out yesterday and this is certainly one of the best places that I have ever stayed in which is saying something as I am on the road around 50% of my time. A very warm welcome from the property manager Calvin so thank you for that. All the staff were so pleasant, immaculately dressed and highly engaging. My room was outstanding with one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept in. Rooms are huge and very well appointed with all the amenities you would expect of a 5 star hotel anywhere in the world. There are plenty of seating areas dotted around so perfect for business travellers and holidaymakers alike. Breakfast didn't disappoint and I didn't make full use of it because my appetite was beaten! However, the range of food and breakfast was quite incredible and the quality, simply outstanding. Security-there is an individual up and over garage for each resident's are anyone worried about this issue needn't. I was very impressed with the security on the property. As for the location, elevated views right over Camps Bay from where you can see the most incredible sunsets and have a glass of wine (trust bar) at your leisure. I would have no hesitation of recommending this place to all of my friends and will certainly endeavour to stay here again next time I am in Cape Town. I hope my photographs do this some justice I would like to close by thanking all of the staff for making me incredibly welcome and looking after me during my stay. Thank you

    Amazing Property / Sketchy Maid(s)

    We stayed in the penthouse and the room/view was absolutely amazing. It's a beautiful property. BUT I made the mistake of leaving 3 of my credit cards in a semi-secret compartment of my suitcase one day while we were out. All 3 cards I left in the room that day now have had fraudulent transactions attempted on them. The head maid wasn't the nicest to us and made us a bit uncomfortable while we were checking in. Now knowing they went through my suitcase and copied my card info would most likely keep us from staying with them again.
