Very pleasant accommodations. Good restaurants, although the menus are limited. Richard, the manager of the Bistro, is extremely attentive. We decided that we wanted Ostrich and left the Bistro, and Richard came after us to make sure we were not unhappy. When we told him that the dish we wanted was not on his menu, he called a local steakhouse,...

As they say "First impression is the last", The Bay hotel explains it all... the moment you entry this property you are delighted with the view of grand Table Mountain in the background and the vast ocean across the street.. the first impression of the staff is warm and very welcoming. Courteous and professional at all times. We stayed in...

Traveling to Cape Town for the first time on business, I decided to stay in Bay Hotel. It would seem, that there had been mix up with my booking whereby I was told that the hotel had not received my instructions for an airport pick up, so by the time I arrived at the hotel I was not in a...

Lovely location with our premier room overlooking the beach which provided us a spectacular view of amazing sunsets from a small terrace on our 3 day visit. The very helpful receptionist provided us with very good information about touring around Cape Town and the excellent tour bus service located directly outside hotel gates. She also booked our tickets for Tabletop...

Hotel has a nice vibe! Great location on the beach and very secure. They charge for parking, which we were not told about when we reached. They took it off the bill once we told them that so that was good. A nice functional hotel - seems that we were given a handicap room - not sure if all their...

Dear pappy_28, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It is great to hear you enjoyed our hotel. The parking in the front of the hotel is charged as there is limited space. However there is parking available at the back of the hotel with no fee. I will speak to my staff about informing guests about...

Spent the day at the Sandy B beach club situated in the hotel grounds. Very very small pool indeed and used mainly by the seagulls!! Staff need to keep the sides clean from droppings!!! Loungers good and waiter service great. Really good cheeseburger and drinks all at a reasonable price 👍 Sea view is also very good 😊

I was hoping for more from a hotel marketed as 5-star. It was all a little bit tired and frayed around the edges. Extra for Wifi, parking and cappuccino at breakfast, etc etc is not acceptable. The business model appears to be for day guests to pay to use the facilities for partying by the pool which stretches the staff,...

Had a fantastic few days here, needed a central Cape Town location near the beach and this proved to be the perfect location. This is a cool, stylish hotel with chic retro touches, a stones throw from the beach, walking distance to outstanding restaurants and bars, well placed to explore everything else in Cape Town - loved it.
