Located on vibrant Victoria Road in ever-fashionable Camps Bay, The Bay Hotel offers the perfect combination of excitement and relaxation in Cape Town. With Table Mountain as its backdrop, the hotel is situated at the foot of the majestic Twelve Apostles mountain range and is a stone's throw from the white sands of Camps Bay beach - it's the perfect spot from which to enjoy Camps Bay and still be within touching distance of Cape Town.

With Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront close by and the rest of the Cape Peninsula lying south, you will never run out of things to do during your stay at 'The Bay'. A number of tours are offered - among them a tour through the famous Cape Winelands. Enjoy these tours from the comfort and luxury of the hotel's Mercedes S300 or, for bigger groups, a mini-van.


  • At the centre of the Camps Bay experience, close to many restaurants
  • Beachfront accommodation with ocean views
  • Close to Table Mountain & V&A Waterfront
  • Spacious, comfortable rooms
  • Experience the hotel residence only Sandy B in the summer months with cocktails by the pool


  • Beach activities
  • Day tours



Get comfortable next to any of the hotel's four pools or relax at the Skin & Body Centre while the professional staff give you a massage or facial.

If you feel like getting active, visit the gym or book a game of tennis or squash at the courts next to the hotel; if however you don't feel like working up a sweat, simply visit the hotel's expansive deck and enjoy a cocktail while admiring the ocean view.


From Tides Restaurant - with its varied and interesting wine list - to the sophisticated Traders cigar lounge, The Bay Hotel offers a variety of bars and dining options. Visit the Deli on the Bay for gourmet delights or the chic and trendy Sandy B Cocktail Bar for a sundowner drink.

And with the hotel's location right at the centre of Camps Bay's dining and nightlife hotspots, you will never run out of options outside the hotel either.

The Bay Hotel

Aubrey Angelillis

"We were very pleased with The Bay Hotel in Cape Town. It had friendly staff, was easy to navigate and had the level of cleanliness, comfort and accommodations that we expected."

Roberto vecchione

"My wife and I wish to let you know that the tour was really fantastic and we have appreciated your attention for each detail, especially for the wonderful stay at the Bay hotel. We hope to come back again in the Next year. Thank you."

Ama Akpata

"We loved it sooo much we are thinking of coming back this Christmas. Thanks sooo much for your help and planning. Everything went so smoothly with no hitches at all. We loved both hotels and were so happy you saved us the best for last."

Ryan Wilcox

"We enjoyed The Bay Hotel and Table Bay Hotel. They both were fabulous hotels and we really enjoyed Camps Bay and the restaurants in the area were excellent."

Bill DeGroodt

We would definitely give the Bay Hotel a 5 star rating. The staff was unbelievable, the accommodations were superb and the food was excellent. It may have been partially because of the low occupancy rate during this period but we couldn’t have asked for a friendlier and more supportive staff. Everyone said hello, good morning or good evening, Graham (general manager) introduced himself and offered to help on any problems and we felt we were treated like royalty. The location is 5 star as well. We loved watching the sunsets on the ocean and being able to walk to many restaurants. Thanks for setting this up for us. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Cape area.

The Bay Hotel was even better than when we stayed in 2002. Our rooms were perfect (down to you again). We all looked round the hotel and decided that if we could have chosen any rooms then it would have been the same three. We had plenty of room and a gorgeous view. We found the hotel very relaxing and there was no pressure to dress up if we didn't want to. We had fun in the pool and drinking mojitos in the outside bar. All the staff were friendly and had a good sense of humour. We all had treatments in the spa and all enjoyed them.

Hard to say much about The Bay except that it works on pretty well every level. We thought we might find it big and busy and impersonal after the Last Word experiences, but not so. The room and balcony facing the sea were wonderful; the deck and poo ls were lovely and well-run with staff never far away and always friendly. Some staff – Dario and Zubeidah in the poolside restaurant, Marcella in the breakfast room – were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Other than a revisit to Table Mountain and evening outings to restaurants (Bleu in Camps Bay, La Perla at Seapoint) we hardly left the hotel in our 4 days – a measure of how comfy and relaxing it was. Small niggles. A few things in our room initially were less than perfect : some dirty cups and a lack of a socket for a reading lamp had to be sorted out on day one, but quickly were. There was a persisting difficulty getting an outside line on the phone. More particularly, the hotel WiFi arrangement seemed to us to be out of step with increasing international norms, with high charges. But these small issues paled next to the wonderful location, spaces and service at the Bay and we wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

"We sure liked The Bay Hotel. Very nice room, service and location. We went to Table Mountain, V&A, Cape of Good Hope and sure liked the Boulders penguin park. We were lucky to see baboons and ostriches along the ocean front!"

Nancy Racette

"It was great to stay in Camps Bay. We very much enjoyed being across from the beach, the pool area is fun and it is a short ride into town if you want to go."

Charlotte Bornhorst

Our hotel room in Cape Town was AMAZING! We couldn't believe how great the views were of the ocean and Table Mountain. Not to mention shark cage diving was great too! Thank you for recommending we fly out to Cape Town as well... definitely worth the trip.
