Loved it!
What a cool and unique hotel concept! A beautiful, old building makes up the core of the resort, with several newer houses around it that have been converted to hotel rooms. Multiple pools, nature paths, a pickle ball court... there's something for everyone. Plus, it's a very quick walk down to the beach!

Booked a room at Camps Bay Retreat for NYE - they told me my reservation was at Bay Hotel. That is NOT what I booked, but with it being NYE there were no other options around Cape Town. Bay Hotel is an entirely different property in an entirely different location. Not only did I have to stay at this property that I did not book, they would not provide any compensation for what they admitted was THEIR MISTAKE (a "system issue"). Beware of this bait and switch tactic they are using to show photos/descriptions of the Camps Bay Retreat to sell rooms at different properties. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Manor has a Old World charm. Room was clean, large and well thought out. Staff were extremely helpful when called upon. Allowed us to relax and explore Camps Bay easily with a short drive from location. Grounds are well kept and offer quiet. View of water from the grounds is great while enjoying a drink. Enjoyed the stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Beautiful retreat on the hill!
This property is stellar! Beautiful views, relaxing grounds and secluded, wooded trails to relax! We had a wonderful stay. The room was comfortable as well. We loved waking up and strolling through the property before enjoying the amazing breakfast overlooking the ocean below!

Fabulous hotel, great location but feels like a little escape from the hustle and bustle of Camps Bay as it’s in a lovely garden/ nature reserve. Large room! Lovely and clean. Great service and hotel restaurant was delicious. Andrew was super helpful
