Exceptional 9,8 From 18 reviews

Exceptional 10,0
It is a beautiful property about halfway up the cliffside of Bantry Bay. The view is stunning, and the welcome was warm. There are only a handful of guest rooms. Rooms are on the smallish-side, but well laid out and thoughtfully appointed. The bed side tables have built in universal plug adapters and USB ports for charging. There is a small mini-bar in the room, and a communal pantry with additional items. Breakfast is served every morning (continental, with eggs to order), and they do offer a small number of non-breakfast items as well (didn't try them). You have a Nespresso machine and tea maker in your room, and they have additional selections in the pantry along with afternoon tea snacks and evening canapés. The walk up to the property can be a steep one, but Ubers are readily available for those who would prefer to avoid the climb. It's a 10-15 minute walk down to the actual beach, which is where most stores, restaurants, etc are located. It's also an easy ride over to Camp's Bay or into the downtown Cape Town area for additional choices. Overall, it's a lovely property in a great location. One note for the smell-sensitive, however. The amenities (Bulgari) are intensely perfumed, so you may want to bring your own to avoid opening them.

Fantastic hotel with staff and view to match
Compass house was absolutely fantastic. We were greeted with bubbly and a very friendly manager who explained how everything worked and then we enjoyed the brilliant room, deck and infinity pool. The service was really top notch and my only regret is that we just stayed for one night before flying home. Can't recommend highly enough
