"Lazy peace near the centre of Cape Town"

4 nights Arrived 7 Nov 2008
"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." See all these reviews: 14n in South Africa; 12n in Namibia

"This place was a big error !"

3 nights Arrived 4 Oct 2008
"God place to be in summer.
Good will of hotel manager to change us to another place of the same group of hotels in the water front of Cape Town.
What we wanted was to be in the Water front and not in the Sea Front that by mistake we asked for !
Anyhow the Hotel was in bad conditions due to works that where going on.
Not recomendable for this time of the year." See all these reviews: 3n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana; 3n in South Africa; 1n in Zambia
