Arrived after travelling 16 hours with 3 kids to be told we didnt have a reservation! Booking had been cancelled. Confirmation email received 8/11/2016. I have checked through my emails and have definitely not received any since 8/11/2016 which they stated. More effort should have been made to contact me. Took over an hour to sort but got 2 rooms...

Camps Bay Retreat was our first accommodation during our trip around Cape Town and it already set the bar very high. The rooms were great, the service was very kind and the location is a blast. Highly recommendable !

We spent 5 days here in the main house. The room was spacious and well maintained although we had an ant problem which took 2 days to get treated. The food at breakfast and lunch was very good and the staff in general pleasant and helpful. However if things get busy it takes a long time to get served and...

Very mixed. For my first night I had a deck house room which I loved - unfortunately arriving early in the morning after a very delayed flight no-one pointed out it had a terrace and I was too tired to take in that it did! I should have arrived at the hotel the morning before. I wish I had known...

We came to The Retreat for breakfast and we found a place with sluggish, indifferent service. On the buffet items had run out and not been replenished. Every time we needed something we had to go searching for the waiter. Luke warm cappuccinos, food taking forever to arrive in a place that was almost empty. I won't be back anytime...

We spent a lovely 6 nights at the retreat as the second part of our cape honeymoon. We were very well looked after by the duty manager Waseem and the team. The setting and style is unique. The grounds are lovely and the views tremendous. The only shame being the camps bay development work which means that a crane can't...

We stayed there in January. During our travel through South Africa we stayed in a mixture of 4 and 5 star hotels, but Camps bay was by far the best. The magic of the place hits you from the moment you walk in. The staff... I wish I had the memory to list them all by heart but each and...

Reviewed 18 March 2017

The web site describes Camps Bay retreat as a Luxury 5 star boutique Hotel perhaps my interpretation of this is incorrect! Having booked in for two nights for a combined business and anniversary stay my expectations were high but the resort and staff are nothing like the advertising. The grounds are unkept and serviced by poorly trained and in some...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camps Bay Retreat Luxury Boutique Hotel is a sanctuary for the soul, set on four acres of lush green nature reserve. With a mountain meditation pool, thickets of trees, waterfalls and streams, it is a peaceful paradise, where meditative moments are waiting to be had. Views stretch across the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean and along the peaks of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, from the Deck House and The Villa. The estate has features such as four pools, a tennis court, a spa and a fine dining restaurant. Dine in the old world splendour of the original manor house, where The Retreat Kitchen's executive chef creates a daily menu of gourmet fare, combining a symphony of fresh ingredients from local markets. Food is paired exquisitely with celebrated wines from the region, best experienced as part of a candlelit three course affair! Spoil yourself with a choice of massages, treatments and facials at the spa. Spend the day luxuriating in the spa, relaxing in the sauna and being revitalized with a deep tissue massage. A refuge for the body and a haven for the mind, you'll unravel and surrender to the tranquility. ... more   less
