Just a few minutes from Camps Bay it enjoys one of the world's most beautiful settings and boasts uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean. You may even spot a few whales! Admire the vistas from the Leopard Bar - the perfect place to unwind before dinner at the Azure Restaurant, which serves delicious international fare with a South African slant!

Room- 8/10 We were in a superior sea facing. The room was really spacious and the attention to detail/ small touches the hotel apply are amazing. The only reason this isn’t a 10 is the room in some areas is probably ready for a bit of a refresh but was more than comfortable for the 3 nights we stayed.

Room- 8/10 We were in a superior sea facing. The room was really spacious and the attention to detail/ small touches the hotel apply are amazing. The only reason this isn’t a 10 is the room in some areas is probably ready for a bit of a refresh but was more than comfortable for the 3 nights we stayed. Food- 10/10 Breakfast and the dinner we had at the twelve apostle’s was delicious. A great variety and plenty of it! Location- 9/10 The hotel is away from any town and the bus link is a taxi journey away. However, the Ubers are great in the area and the shuttle that the hotel provides is 5*! We personally liked the remoteness of the hotel as the walks/views etc mean more to us than a city vibe. Team- 100/10! Everyone we encountered at the hotel were absolutely fantastic. From Hlumi on reception the shuttle bus driver, waiting staff etc they were all brilliant. A warm welcoming smile and a true feel of nothing being too much really makes this hotel. Thank you team!
