    Profile: Camps Bay

    Profile: Camps Bay

    Camps Bay is Cape Town’s premier tourist hotspot, neatly seated between the sparkling Atlantic Ocean and the rough and rugged Twelve Apostles mountain range. Its star attraction is its palm-fringed beach, where bronzed bodies play volleyball, and swimmers frolic in the warm waves.

    Just a short drive from Cape Town’s city center, the village-like suburb boasts its own trendy selection of bars, restaurants, and shops, many of which dot the main drag, Victoria Road. Come sunset you can unwind with a cocktail, and then take your seat for an evening of musicals, cabaret, or comedy, at Theatre On The Bay.

    • 8.0.Very good

      I read some reviews saying the property was outdated before booking, and although it is, the location is so perfect why is anyone inside their room except to sleep?! The staff had said some renovations were coming and the facility was clean so we had no complaints, just an older building right on the beach and steps from awesome restaurants! Perfect for what we needed for our five night stay.

      Beach side bliss

      This place was perfect! We had a large group of people who needed lodging while in Cape Town and Place on the Bay checked all our boxes. Location was amazing right along Camps Bay Beach and was in walking distance of many restaurants and stores. We stayed in the studio room with a king size bed, balcony facing the beach, and full sky light. Just amazing! Our other friends stayed in the two bedroom and had beyond enough space to enjoy our time. Our bathroom did have some light mold on the wall but the rest of the space was clean. The staff were beyond friendly. I highly recommend this hotel!
