Jardinedebene seems fabulous although I have not stayed there myself ( at that specific place ) CT is very cosmopolitan and I think you will not be dissapointed in the accomodation.

I stayed in a hotel not far from Jardindebene and it was a great location. I do remember walking past and thinking what a lovely hotel it is. Close to lots of things to do and see and some nice walks tp parks etc nearby.

The one at Gordons Bay is a bit further out of town - but Gordon's Bay itself was very nice.

How close to the city or what your interests are may dictate where you stay.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Will it Rain?

by glennkasner

The locals have a very accurate way of forcasting whether rain could be expected within the next few hours.

Simply look at Lions Head, that's the peak to the right of Table Mountain.
If there is a cloud obscuring the tip of Lions Head you can bet your bottom dollar that rain is well in it's way. If no cloud, leave your brolly at your hotel!

South Africa, Land of...

by Petra_Khalil

South Africa, Land of Delicious Wine!
We tried several different kinds of South African wine and all of them where exquisite.
If you are in the Cape Town area, you are in the center of interest of the South African wine production. Follow the wine-route and taste some of the best wines of the land.

The board gives alot of helpful information regarding this like....reducing the risk of shark bites , why sharks bite people , safety protocols and what to do if you get bitten.

Boat Cruise

by roarksown1

My first night out in Camp's Bay, I met up with some crazy guys who turned out to be club promoters in the Mother City. They took me with them on a harbor boat cruise that was a bunch of young people going nuts partying on the water and cruising in and around the harbor. They do this kind of party at least once a month and I definitely recommend it. Dress cool. That's it.

Best sushi outside Japan?

by londonbabe about Tank

Tank is a fairly new restaurant in the Waterkant area, set inside a courtyard. Great design, with a huge fishtank in the middle of the restaurant.
The staff are extremely friendly, as we found everywhere in the Cape, and service was fast and expert.
But, all of that was secondary to the food. The sushi selection is extensive and it all sounds soooo good! But we were also seduced by the specials of the day - langoustines and slipper lobster. Simply grilled, but very very fresh and wonderfully tasty.
So, a blow-out meal - two lots of sushi, langoustine, lobster and an excellent bottle of wine - came to about 600 rand. A bargain, for those of us used to the horrendous cost of eating out in London. But you can eat here much more cheaply - a good meal should cost around 200 rand per person.
