The Clarendon Bantry Bay staff is professional, friendly, and provides outstanding service. Accommodations are elegant and spacious offering beautiful views of the bay. While the breakfast buffet has a variety of food options, the chef will accommodate special requests. Additionally, the concierge will help arrange tours and provide suggestions for activities and restaurants.

My partner and I stayed here whilst down in Cape Town on business and we really were taken aback by the quality of service and friendliness of the staff. The rooms were luxurious, with remarkable views. A 5 minute walk down to the promenade made 'The Clarendon' even that much more memorable. Will definitely be back!!

The hotel is intimate and one of the most friendly hotels in which I have stayed. With delightful views down onto Bantry Bay you are perfectly positioned for that Cape Town sunset. All of the staff and especially Adele, David and Andrew, were fantastic and the chef must not be missed out especially for the Malva pudding!

My wife and I stayed here upon our arrival in Cape Town for our honeymoon. We stayed 4 nights and if I had to sum it up in one word it would be 'spectacular'.
