Definitely Not a 5 star hotel!
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.
Great location hotel
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.
Bay Hotel review
This aprt of our holidays felt a little less well orgaanised in general than our Zambia/Botswana part. The hotel was great, cape town in a fab setting but misssed the bush!
Felt like an avetrage city kind of break altho in a beautiful place: table mmountain, camaps Bay.. but also barbed wire and shanty towns.. enjoyed it never the les. Had a few beauty treatments here which were OK. Hair dresser was not polite or nice.. Steven certainly would not go back!
