90 Travel Hotspot: Cape View Clifton.

Cape View Clifton isn't a ho­tel - it's a guest house. The kind of guest house where you will find warm, home­made cake wait­ing to be eaten in the kitchen, chilled bot­tles of South Africa's best grape in the fridge and decor so in­cred­i­bly chic and per­sonal you could move in quicker than you can say Ta­ble Moun­tain. It makes guests feel in­stantly at home with such ef­fort­less and friendly ser­vice from staff that you'll be on first name terms within an hour of check­ing in. Af­ter ar­riv­ing, if the weather per­mits, bag a lounger on the sun deck over­look­ing the four sweep­ing shore­lines of Clifton and Camp's Bay and ad­mire the glo­ri­ous moun­tains loom­ing above, be­fore cool­ing down in the out­door pool. Sim­i­larly to the com­mu­nal liv­ing ar­eas, each guest room is decked out in nau­ti­cal stripes, fresh white linens and bal­cony doors open­ing onto un­in­ter­rupted panoramic views. Try nab­bing ju­nior suite 3B, which is per­fectly placed on the cor­ner of the house and has two bal­conies, giv­ing you the most beau­ti­ful sun­set each evening.

TOP TIP Cape View Clifton is roughly 10 min­utes' drive from all the hotspots of the city; we used Uber to get around
