I just love this hotel. The rooms are fantastic and the location in Camps Bay is just superb. I love the size of the rooms with more than enough space and if you get one of their classic rooms, which leads into the pool deck, even better. We go back every year and are never disappointed.

I stayed two nights at the Bay Hotel and it was amazing. Great room, location and close to Cape Town. But what separates it from other hotels is there customer service. From the gate operator, vallet, front desk, and house keeping staff. They all wanted to make sure your every need is takening care of. Sedick, the Manager, went above...

The best and true safari clothing is to be found at a place called Safari and Outdoor near Stellenbosch. It is also an exceptional gun shop and hunting apparel emporium.
