We had a one-night stopover on our way back from hiking the 'Whale Trail'. We booked the family room which turned out to be two rooms and a separate bathroom. We desperately needed a good rest after a 55km hike over five days. Accommodation could not have been better and neither could the welcome from our host Mark. Mark's recommendation for a restaurant for dinner also turned out to be excellent. Value for money was as good as I've ever had, and the quality of the accommodation and overall stay would have been exceptional at any price. Five stars plus!

My wife and me would not expect such a lovely, charming and friendly Hotel in Cape Town where I was to attend an international Conference on electrical engineering. We spent 8 days in Cape Town with total support of Mark and Eugene, the owners of Bay View Hotel. They help us in all our requests, including transportation service, amazing breakfast, besides a pleasant and bright conversation. The Hotel is located in a hill where we saw incredibles sunrises and sunsets. We recommend this Hotel which has a high rate of benefit related to the price. Surely we will return to this hotel.
