Quiet retreat

Camps Bay was a very quiet place to stay. The suite was lovely and large. Privacy could be a problem because of the open plan type bathroom in the bed room. When using it the blinds need to be closed but this then makes the bedroom dark.

Camps Bay is in easy walking reach of Camps Bay itself.

The food was very good we had one dinner as well as breakfast.

What a delighful retreat

What a lovely place this is. We stayed in the main house and loved our room.

The food was great and in fact it was the best steak we tasted on our whole trip. We would recommend Camps Bay Retreat although the view of the crane in the middle of the back garden vista in not ideal.

Tranquility under the Table

We very much enjoyed our stay at Camp's Bay. Comfortable accommodation, good food and wine list. Prime location too: sunset views across the bay; a short walk into Camp's Bay town proper (using the gate at the bottom of the garden); and just 20 minutes by cab to Cape Town Waterfront; and much more peaceful than the Waterfront area and Camp's Bay town. Pleasant walks in the hotel garden itself - with plenty of birdlife; and just to the north in the woods. We also commend the wi-fi connection for those who need/want it - better than most we encountered this trip.

Camps Bay Retreat in time warp

The main building (Earls Dyke Manor) at Camps Bay Retreat is lost in a time warp with antiques/junk everywhere which gave it a certain character.

Although it advertises as a five star establishment with a menu changing daily, the same four basic main courses were repeated over three days with only the accompanying sauces tweaked. We were provided with a courtesy car to be able to eat at a local restaurant after complaining on the third evening.

Although good, we find it hard to justify the fifth star.

Camps Bay Retreat review

Stylish and peaceful hotel a stones throw from the buzzing Camps Bay strip.

Lovely to be able to relax so much and yet be so close to the action.

Great service, allowed us use of the spa so we could shower the evening after we'd checked out before our flight back.

Loved it.

Another wonderful stay, this time in our own little stately home. Lovely, well appointed large room in the main house, complete with own lounge area and mini conservatory.

Location wonderful and the staff were absolutely top notch. Food wasn't bad either!

My husband is hoping to come into money so he can buy this place!

Camps Bay Retreat review

we arrived late at night after our transfer and were put in a room in the manor house - voucher stated a deck suite, we brought this to the attention of the manager the next morning and were offered the option of moving to the deck house which we did. there appeared to have been some confusion over our booking between their agent and that of expert Africa - as the deck house suite was occupied on the day of our arrival - the deck house was what we expected and we were disappointed at having to spend time negotiating and repacking. Great location thoroughly enjoyed the time there.

Lazy peace near the centre of Cape Town

An ideal place to finish (or start) a holiday, peaceful and relaxing with very attentive and friendly staff.

Very good food which we would say was probably the best of the trip - where the food was good at every location we stopped.

At Camps Bay retreat you can enjoy all the pleasures of Camps Bay in comfortable, peaceful and safe surroundings just a short walk from the beach and center of the town.

We even enjoyed some unexpected whale watching from the lawn.
