The Bay Hotel Location Map

Situated between the majestic backdrop of the craggy Twelve Apostles and the palm-fringed white sandy beach of Camps Bay, The Bay Hotel was the first beachfront hotel in Cape Town, and has proven over the years that 5* elegance and sophistication can be achieved in an informal atmosphere.

The upmarket suburb of Camps Bay has a typical village atmosphere and is home to some of the trendiest restaurants and bars and one of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town. Local life is casual and in the evening residents and holidaymakers can be found enjoying sundowners at the many sidewalk bistros and restaurants on the strip.

The Bay is the perfect base from which to explore the wonders of the Cape and is within easy reach of its most celebrated scenic attractions including the V&A Waterfront, the Table Mountain Cableway, and the Cape Peninsula.  The V&A Waterfront boasts many shops, bars and restaurants, and there is also an aquarium, and one of the largest craft markets in Southern Africa. Boats offer tours of the harbour from the quayside of the V&A, and the whole place is always buzzing with life and activity.  The Table Mountain Cableway is a short drive away, and the coastal road from Camps Bay down to the Cape Peninsula is one of the most spectacular in the whole of South Africa.

The Bay Hotel offers guests a variety of culinary experiences to indulge in with the hotel’s 4 different restaurants. Each restaurant has a unique style, complimenting the venue’s surroundings, and whether guests are on the lookout for a fresh, bountiful breakfast overlooking Camps Bay’s beachfront, a long leisurely lunch poolside, or simply to unwind whilst sipping on a glass of fine wine, everyone is spoilt for choice here.

Every one of the bedrooms and suites have views of Camps Bay, and many of the rooms have spacious balconies from which to enjoy the views from.

Guests can relax around the sparkling pool, or simply cross the road to the golden sands and lie on the beach. There is also a spa plus a small but well-equipped gymnasium.

Start TestimonialApologies for not getting back sooner - wedding and work seem to have taken over my life for last two weeks. We had a really brilliant holiday, and in no small part due to Travel Butlers' knowledge and advice. The Bay Hotel in Camps Bay was a great recommendation. I don't think we would have liked the hotels around the waterfront - and we even had a whale in the bay on our last day there. One of the best designed hotel rooms I've been in, but not over impressed by the restaurant in the hotel, despite it's apparent high standing. Blues Restaurant, 50 yds away was much better. Hermanus was really good, and Abalone Guest House a real treat. Relaxed and informal, great views, with provision of binoculars for close-ups of the whales. The Phantom Forest was phantastic, and the food here was the best we had throughout the holiday. 6 course meals for £25 per head. Maybe we had a discount as residents , but even so, we would be paying 3 times that amount for similar quality in London. The rooms and the views at Phantom were spectacular. Kruger was all we hoped for and more. The lodge (Exeter River Lodge) was fine, guides and trackers very good, food excellent, and an all-round brilliant 3 days. Stanley Safari was another excellent recommendation. We were certainly better there than in Mauritius, which was my original plan. Stanley Safari Lodge was an excellent spot. Quiet - no phones, no TV, no newspapers, not even a connection to the main building. Service there was excellent, and all meals well prepared and served, including light lunch and evening meals. As luck would have it, when we went to Livingstone Island to sit on the edge of the falls, we were accompanied by 73 year old great grand-daughter of David Livingstone, along with her daughter. A great finish to a wonderful trip. All in all, a great trip.End Testimonial

Directions For Drivers

From the N2 (Cape Town International Airport/the Winelands/Hermanus/The Garden Route): Take the N2 towards Cape Town. Keep on this road, following the signs for Cape Town North, and then M6 Sea Point. If in doubt, keep bearing right the whole time! You will then see the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) on your left-hand side (very large cream-coloured building), and there will be a set of traffic lights at a major junction. Go straight over these set of traffic lights. You are now going up Buitengracht Street (M62) towards the cable way and Camps Bay.

Keep following the signs towards the cable way. You will go over several sets of traffic lights, but keep going straight. You will go up a fairly steep hill, and at the top at a small roundabout, the cable way will be off to the left. Go straight over this roundabout towards Camps Bay. You will go over the pass, and Camps Bay will be right in front of you. This is now Camps Bay Drive.

Follow Camps Bay Drive down the hill to the very bottom, where the road stops at a T-junction with the sea immediately opposite you. Turn right, and The Bay is just along here on your right-hand side, after the first row of restaurants and the petrol station.

From the N1: Follow the road to Cape Town, and you will see the CTICC on your left-hand side. Follow the directions as above.
