What a lovely little boutique hotel! We ended our holiday in South Africa here and thought our room was as nice or better than any of the bigger hotels we stayed at (it was a suite). It was honestly luxurious with a big sofa area, efficient air conditioning and a huge comfy bed plus wonderful direct view of the ocean with a big outside terrace and 2 sun beds. The poolside area was also really sweet and pretty with regular visits by staff if we wanted any drinks or snacks out there. We loved our stay and thank you to Shirley for helping us secure a harbour view dinner reservation at one of the top restaurants in Cape town at very short notice. This hotel has a really personal touch and great attention to detail, we loved it.

This is my favourite place to stay for a weekend especially if traveling solo and needing a quiet and comfortable space to relax and catch up on some work. No setting more beautiful or peaceful. Staff incredibly warm and accommodating.

What a wonderful location and property. Such friendly staff. And the included breakfast was delicious and generous. The penthouse is magnificent. The view goes on forever and it is close to beaches, walks, shops and restaurants.

We stayed for 5 days at the end of January /beginning of February 2024. The Clarendon Bantry Bay is a little way up the hill from its partner the Clarendon at Fresnaye, so its a short drive into town. Ideal for mid life or even older couples, The outstanding thing was the personal service we received from Shirley and the team. Breakfast offer enough to keep us going the whole day. We were sorry to leave.

My stay at the Clarendon Villa in Bantry Bay was truly enjoyable. Located in one of the top residential neighborhoods of Cape Town within a short drive of the center, this hotel offers a great mix of luxury and comfort. The warm hospitality from the owner and staff made me feel comfortable right from the start. The rooms are spacious with tasteful decorations. Waking up to the sound of waves and the sight of the sunrise over the bay was a peaceful start to each day. What I appreciated most about the Clarendon was the excellent and attentive service. The hotel's restaurant provided a good selection of tasty meals and offered wonderful views of the sea and the elegant villas around Bantry Bay. Overall, the Clarendon is a wonderful place to stay for those who want to enjoy the beauty of Bantry Bay in a refined setting.

The stay at this place is memorable und calls for repetition. Best of the class service. Very enjoyable breakfast. Friendly staff, all that you can think of and wish for. The location itself offers a spectacular view over the Atlantic and on the Table Mountain.

We spent one night at the Clarendon. Unfortunately, they seemed to be going through some renovations at the time and there was was just a very scruffy sign outside with it's name on which for us worried. Once inside though, we were happier. Our room was clean, a bit dated though. The view was amazing. Unfortunately due to the repairs we had sand running out of our bathroom taps and no hot water. However, the staff were fantastic and arranged another bathroom for us before our function. By the time we got back that evening, it was fixed and the bathroom cleaned. I really cannot say enough about ALL the staff in terms of their friendliness and helpfulness. They were brilliant. Our breakfast was top notch.

My husband and I were celebrating our 35 wedding anniversary on our first trip to Cape Town. We could not have picked a more beautiful luxurious hotel to celebrate in. We loved how nicely decorated our room was and it was very clean and comfortable with such an amazing view of the ocean. The breakfast options were delicious and we had the pleasure of meeting the chef. I can't speak highly enough about how wonderful, friendly, and accommodating the staff was; they made our stay even more special. My husband calls me a hotel snob and I was completely impressed and satisfied with The Clarendon.
