Place on the Bay
Family holiday January 2018
Fantastic location, wonderful service and help from all the staff. We had excellent views Of both table mountain and the sea views and could hear the soothing sounds of the surf. We are a couple early 50's and were holidaying with our son 26 and daughter 23. The apartment suited us all very well and we could just walk out the main gate to the bars and restaurants along the front. The beach is Just across the main road. The interior and exterior are a little dated & tired, but are insignificant compared to the service, price and location of the hotel. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
