We stayed at the Clarendon during our first trip to Cape Town. It is a stunning hotel. A lot of thought has clearly gone into the interior design. The service was impeccable, the staff couldn't do enough to help and left us wanting for nothing. The breakfasts were delicious and served looking out at one of the best views in...

Great service, amenable, attentive and always with a smile. I always felt like I was home. I did not enjoy the breakfast much but it was above average. Love the Tamzam, Andrew and the staff in the kitchen.... Will definitely stay again.

The staff is very friendly but can not coop when nothing in the fridge or pantry. I think the owners are trying to get rich in...

Good location for Cape Town, Table Mountain, Constantia, V&A Waterfont, Camps Bay. Uber readily available, and very cheap. Far easier than driving and parking anywhere locally. Limited on site Parking available, not a problem when we were there, but if fully occupied it may be more tricky. On initial check for one of our rooms we were given keys to...

The highlight of our stay was the staff who are just so friendly and helpful. The hotel is beautifully equipped with fantastic views of the ocean albeit over the top of other properties. The location is ideal if you have a car, otherwise there are a few hills to tackle and a taxi is the best bet. It is only...

The Clarendon Bantry Bay staff is professional, friendly, and provides outstanding service. Accommodations are elegant and spacious offering beautiful views of the bay. While the breakfast buffet has a variety of food options, the chef will accommodate special requests. Additionally, the concierge will help arrange tours and provide suggestions for activities and restaurants.
