of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
An absolute treat to stay at Camps Bay Retreat. There is only great things to say about this place we just loved it. This hotel is a reason to come back to visit Capetown. Rooms are excellent, staff are so friendly and helpful. The location is superb when you walk through the lobby to the gardens the view is stunning. Our room was room no 1 it could not have been more perfect. Any other guests we spoke to while there had the same opinion. The hotel ran a barbecue evening on the first night and it was excellent. Breakfast on the terrace was living the dream. Loved the dogs Ben and Bailey they are such a lovely addition to the place and very well behaved so even those who don't like dogs don't be put off by that. Honestly the hotel is truly amazing but beware its sets a very high bar for the rest of your trip if travelling across South Africa. Thank you Camps Bay retreat we had the very best few days at your hotel. Staff are really friendly and helpful and I loved their info on places to visit etc. This place is very special.

"Perfect start to our honeymoon in SA"
We found this place to be a truly perfect start to an amazing trip in SA on our honeymoon. Loved our accommodation across the rope bridge, felt like we had a proper area of this paradise all to ourselves as it was so private. The beautiful golden retrievers just added to the experience as it felt so homely. The Manor House itself is just breathtaking and walking out into the sunshine onto the terrace the first day we arrived after coming off our flight was like walking into a dream with the butterflies and exotic birds flying around! Only wish we could have had longer to make more use of the pools etc and truly appreciate the wonderful surrounding this hotel provides. Food was excellent and we found staff service to be first class throughout. Can't wait to return!
"Underwhelmed, not worth the premium prices"
We splashed out to stay here. It was nothing to write home about. A nice enough room, but in an unimpressive block over the bridge away from the historic house. The views were not exactly over the sandy sweep of camps bay but rather some boulders at one end. Took dinner in the hotel, pretty average. Breakfast OK - but there's a tips tin in your face at each table. Might have put more in it if the service wasn't quite so surly and they had brought me the promised toast. Having seen prices for real estate in camps bay that maybe explains their room rates rather than any real offer of luxury or superior services' Don't understand the pictures of their dogs everywhere.
"Traditional South African Braai"
My husband and I went on our first night in Cape Town for a Braai at the Camps Bay Retreat (due to a wonderful suggestion from our staff at the Bay Hotel) We were exhausted from our flight and didn't really want to make reservations for dinner that evening but they told us the Braai is only done on certain days of the week- so we decided to muster up some strength and go... THANK GOODNESS we did!!! 1. The food was absolutely spectacular (endless appetizers of watermelon and goat cheese salad, pumpkin zepolis, chicken skewers that were marinated to perfection, then came our entree which was a huge fillet cooked to our liking, finished off by the most decadent desserts ie. chocolate mouse with fresh fruit or bavarian souflee with a white chocolate sauce) To die for! 2. The view was spectacular. You are in the back patio of the hotel with only a sprinkle of other tables dining... you feel as though it is a private dinner! 3. The best staff you could imagine is serving you- from the cooks, to the waitstaff, to the hosts/hostesses (which if you get Nadia as your hostess prepare yourself for THEE best experience ever! Double kudos to her for her amazing level of detail) We ended up making friends with almost everyone and going back again before the end of our stay in Cape Town. Very reasonable at R375 pp plus gratuity for all that you get!!! Make this one of your stops or you will kick yourself!!!!
