Perfect stay in camps bay”

We stayed at the Reatreat Hotel 5 days and it was a absolutely outstanding. Beautiful view, friendly staff , very nice room ( deck 5 and 8) . Can recommend this to everybody who are looking for a very relaxing holiday. As my partner and I are vegans they made us a plant based breakfast in the morning. We combined our stay with a hiking tour at the table mountain and a 5 day hike at the cedar berg. One of the best local mountain guide we ever had is Nicholas Ashby, cape trekking.co.za He is well organised, knows the area very well and i can highly recommend him to anyone. For sure we will come back at the Camps Bay Retreat Hotel and combine this a again with a hiking trip with Nick.

Stay 16 March 2019”

Excellent service and friendly staff. Expected. Food excellent. Expected. Our picnic was fantastic and the Spa facility was brilliant. Room 4 - Bearing in mind the building is old and has kept its charm and authenticity, I did expect a more comfortable bed and quality linen. Our pillow cases had holes in them and bed was very squeeky. There were mosquitos that were an absloute pain. The smoke from the fire downstairs carried into the room and the smell did become a problem. We ordered room service for dinner and the plates werent collected when we called after leaving them outside our room. I will certainly come back but wont stay in the original house, will stay across the bridge at the Deck house or Villa.

TV wasn’t working, the bath wasn’t working, you couldn’t lock the door and the room has four holes in the roof, after strong rain in the night, the whole room was floated with water, after telling the hotel staff about the disaster, not one of the management came to have a view. hotel management was ignoring us. we couldn’t sleep the whole night, my spouse left at 3am, it was to much for her. honestly you messed up totally our go away from our baby for one night. also the chairman of the hotel group or the top manager were ignoring emails and phone calls. a staff member told me, problem is known since over 3 month, it was several time reported to the management but the management saw no need to repair the room. the hotel was only to 58% utilized and they gave us this room. this hotel and the top management are more than ignorant and don't look after their clients. the clipping star were very friendly and supported a lot. we hope a lot of possible guest will read this review.
