The President Hotel - Hotel Birds Eye

Hand-Picked Hotel

Grandiose seaside setting within the affluent Cape Town suburb of Bantry Bay.

Set in beautiful Bantry Bay, the white-washed walls of The President Hotel stand proudly between Lion’s Head Mountain and the Atlantic. It’s a legendary landmark and the ideal location for anyone looking to visit Cape Town without having to stay in the city centre.

Enjoy an afternoon relaxing around the spacious infinity pool or book yourself in for a relaxing spa session or a stretch at the fitness suite. Once you’ve worked up an appetite spend an evening at the fine dining restaurant or just kick back at the Base Pizzeria.

There’s plenty to do at the hotel as well as easy access to the restaurants, pubs, and Atlantic Seaboard trailheads just steps away from the palm fringed front door.

There are just shy of 350 rooms and apartments all of which have modern amenities and comforts as well as open plan kitchenettes. Mountain, ocean, and city views add to a variety of in-room décor. This is a forward-thinking hotel with accessibility options throughout public areas as well as accessible rooms available on request.

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Bantry Bay, The President Hotel can’t be beaten.

Local Area

If you’ve got plans to visit Cape Town, staying in Bantry Bay makes for a great base. Not only will you get a peaceful seaside setting, but you’ll also be close to some of the area’s top beaches. Clifton 4th and Camps Bay beaches are both close to Bantry Bay.

All the city highlights are just down the road. It’s just a 10min taxi ride to the V&A Waterfront as well as the colourful houses of the Muslim Bo-Kaap Quarter. There are also trailheads in the area that will take you on circular walks to the summit of Signal Hill.

If you’re hoping to make the most of Cape Town, take your time to explore. There are some fascinating museums, such as the Science Centre and the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art. As well as the ever-popular Two Oceans Aquarium.

Neighbourhoods Market is always a firm favourite with foodies looking for a Saturday morning treat or two. Whereas the cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain is a rite of passage you simply won’t want to miss.

No matter whether you’re taking a ferry to Robben Island or to watch Cape fur Seals poking their whiskers up around Duiker Island; the affluent city suburb of Bantry Bay gives you easy access to all of the above plus a whole lot more besides.
