We stayed here for four nights at the start of our honeymoon. We were in one of the rooms just down the hall from reception. The room was spacious and comfortable with a sitting area (both indoors and outdoors) and a big, comfy bed. It's about a 15 minute walk into Camps Bay from the hotel, which we did most...

As all reviews state the location is superb with rooms overlooking the sea and extremely well kept gardens. We had a garden room with outside area in New building. Very minimalist and modern but could have done with a second comfortable chair and adequate crockery for two. The walls have evidence of damp particularly in the bathroom which spoils the...

High spec and well managed small hotel with superb views of both mountains and the the bay. Staff were great and the breakfast was excellent. We would definitely return to stay when next in CT. Nice to be within a mile of Camps Bay restaurants & bars, but quieter with amazing views
