The Bay Hotel, Camps Bay

Sophisticated elegance and casual comfort

The Bay is a favourite among frequent visitors to Cape Town, located in a great position directly opposite the sweeping sandy beach of Camps Bay. The rooms provide comfortable and elegant accommodation with good facilities and many have views over Camps Bay or look up to the craggy Twelve Apostles. Traders, the Bay Hotel's bar and cigar lounge, offers one of the coolest hotspots in Cape Town to watch a spectacular African sunset. Wi-Fi is available for a fee across the property.
