Let the sound of the waves lapping against the shoreline be your first waking soundNestled at the foot of the picturesque Chapmans Peak Drive overlooking the beach lies, the 117 year-old Chapmans Peak Hotel, family run since 1977. Situated 20km for Cape Town, along the Atlantic Seaboard. The hotel has currently 10 charming original rooms. Four of our ten light & airy, well-appointed guest rooms have sea-facing vistas across the Hout Bay Harbour to the Sentinel Mountain. In refurbishing the rooms we retained the unique charm of a bygone era but added modern touches to add comfort and style for your stay. The interior decor lends itself to a warm, calming and relaxed ambience.In 2008 the hotel introduces 22 luxurious new rooms and two magnificent penthouse suites, which will be a mere stone throw from the beach. These new spacious rooms will have spectacular views of Hout Bay beach and surrounding mountains. Hout Bay is widely regarded as the most picturesque bay in South Africa. The sound of the sea lapping the shore will ensure total tranquillity and relaxation.The restaurant is a local institution, renowned worldwide for the best Calamari in Cape Town, with a popular sun-drenched terrace overlooking the bay and mountains. Calamari at the Chapmans Peak was voted as "one of top 20 things to do in Cape Town".The new conference and banqueting facility has rapidly become a favourite choice given its unique location that inspires creativity and team-building. The contemporary and modern new rooms adjoining the charming historical building combine to create a unique luxurious boutique hotel by the sea. Hout Bay is one of the most beautiful and popular places on the Cape Peninsula and a highlight of any visit to Cape Town. Hout Bay is the centre of the crayfish and snoek fishing industry, and its fishing harbour gives the little coastal town a lively atmosphere. But today, its main economic contributor is tourism. After all, the attractions of this beautiful situated place are numerous. Other than hiking, sailing, surfing, kayaking, fishing, cycling, having a picnic or sun tanning at the beach, there is not much one can’t do in Hout Bay.
