The cutest little boutique hotel, 11 gorgeously decorated rooms. We were met with the nicest staff, who you soon get to know seeing as the hotel is so small. Located directly in the centre of everything, ocean views and across the road from the beach. Below the hotel are many restaurants, most of which are available for room service! Each...

Amazing location with great views from the front l. Small pool area. Not a regular hotel more like executive suites. Service is amazing but it's very expensive. The actual suite was gorgeous with great views but you are directly over diners.

We stayed at the Marly for four days. The bed room as well as the bath room were large and luxury. The room had a large balcony on the beach side with jacuzzi and outdoor sofa. The service was always friendly and helpful. We could park our car on room level nearly 20 meters from our room and right in...

We have stayed in a number of hotels in and around the Western Cape over the years, including some of CT's loveliest (and more expensive). This time we decided to treat ourselves and spend significantly more than we normally do when staying in Camps Bay but from the moment we arrived, we realised it was not worth it. This is...

We arrived in Camps Bay, expecting everything to be great because of the price but we shortly found out that you arrive on foot through the towns shopping centre in a lift which was dirty when we arrived, or if you come by car you get to enter on the third floor of the dirty car park.

We stayed here for two nights & thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Service is top notch with nothing being too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious & served on our balcony. Our suite was stylish & well appointed with a large balcony overlooking the beach. This is the prefect location to enjoy Camps Bay & we would definitely return.

We stayed here for the first two nights of our holiday to acclimatize from winter in London and get some rest before getting stuck into the rest of our trip - perfect place to chill out, service is great but very lais back and unintrusive.

We had a great week at the Marly. Great location at lively Camps Bay. Very large and well planned junior suite. But perhaps the best of all was the quality of service - the staff were so helpful and responsive. We would be very happy to return on another trip.
