We love small quirky and contemporary hotels. The Marly fits the bill. Finding reception is a bit difficult on the first time. The Marly is on the top floor of the Promenade. Enter through the parking garage on the beach road -- drive all the way to the top -- and there it is. The location is a wonderful bonus....

I am a regular visitor to Camps Bay and have stayed in numerous hotels and guest houses. This one just tops them all. Name it and its the best: the welcome, the friendliness, eagerness, efficiency and class of the staff as well as rooms to die for. The rooms are big, luxurious, 6 face the ocean and two of those...

Great location, friendly staff, delicious food and spectacular views. Even before arriving we contacted the hotel to plan some tours and airport pick up. Hotel staff were always helpful. We enjoyed our stay and we will certainly come back.

What a wonderful experience. From the moment you buss the private lift to when they load your bags into the hire car nothing is to much trouble. The quality of the surroundings is top class, having stayed at the Savoy in London many times I have to rate this experience as either equal or even better. In that context it...

The hotel accommodations were spectacular. The staff was amazing.. They went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. The location is perfect. Get an ocean view room and have your complimentary breakfast delivered to your room and eat on the balcony. It was a highlight.. I highly recommend this location.

The hotel is impeccable. Stylish decor, friendly staff and incredibly spacious rooms. The bathroom was stunning with marble floors, mirrored walls and a lovely roll top bath. The bedroom had a lovely sitting area to relax and the beds were luxurious. The pool area is fantastic. We were the only two use it which meant we had the whole area...

I returned to Cape Town and stayed at the Marly 12 months following my original stay. It remains my favourite hotel. Impeccable service, friendly and caring staff, beautiful rooms with gorgeous views. The terrace of my sea facing room gave the impression of having my very own private beach. The Marly is a boutique hotel in the true sense: luxurious,...
