Les Cascades de Bantry Bay is an owner-managed hotel, perched on the hillside below Lion’s Head.
Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and Table Mountain are only a short drive away and Clifton’s famous beaches are within walking distance.
Accommodation consists of 10 luxurious rooms in two adjacent properties - six in ’Main Lodge’ and four in the ’Villa’. Rooms incorporate strong elements of contemporary art, latticed shutters covering large bay windows and private balconies overlooking the ocean. The Villa consists of three double en-suite rooms and one two-roomed junior suite, all offering the same features as the main lodge. Decor reflects a more contemporary style, enhanced with details such as Philip Stark design bathtubs, stainless steel trimmings in combination with chiselled sand stone, exposed wooden beams and game skins.
NOTE Les Cascades de Bantry Bay has now closed.
Children welcome but no facilities except babysitting
