"Bay Hotel, Camps Bay "

5 nights Arrived 18 Oct 2019
"The Bay Hotel is a modern, light seaside hotel in the middle of Camps Bay near to many restaurants and amenities and directly opposite the stop for the Red Bus city site seeing tours.

Our room was large with a separate area for sitting and nice comfy beds. there was room to hang clothes and keep you suitcases out of the way.

Breakfast was very nice and freshly cooked and taken in the restaurant with panoramic views of the ocean" See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa

"Definitely Not a 5 star hotel!"

3 nights Arrived 11 Feb 2015
"The Bay Hotel was a choice we made ourselves and to be clear, was not favoured by Expert Africa when we asked to book it. Our choice was based on a friends recommendation.

Just for the record this is a very shabby, tired hotel in a noisy, busy position. The sun terraces and one of the swimming pools are situated almost on the pavement of the busy road that is situated in between the hotel and the beach.

The rooms - particularly the bathrooms are scruffy and poorly designed. The breakfast and in house bistro food is very poor and the service haphazard." See all these reviews: 8n in South Africa

"Great location hotel"

6 nights Arrived 18 Oct 2013
"We loved Camps Bay but had a few niggles with the hotel, invariably we would not have sufficient towels, we might get 2 hand towels and not bath towels. Very annoyingly the swimming pool was not heated as stated in their brochure. The first rooms allocated were next to the Traders Bar where a large group of people were partying, really noisy, we asked to be moved. Our next rooms were also noisy as the maids' cupboards were directly outside, woken at 7am every morning. Wi Fi did not work in room? TV very poor reception.

We were very happy with the Manager and staff who were always helpful, our niggles did not stop us having a fabulous time there, our last evening was superb at their sister hotel." See all these reviews: 7n in Botswana; 6n in South Africa; 2n in Zimbabwe
