Nestled in the shadow of the Karbonkelberg with the Sentinel standing guard is the village of Hout Bay. Originally known as Chapman's Chance, it was Jan Van Riebeeck who, in the 17th century, wrote in his diary about the finest forests in the world and named it Hout Bay (wood bay).
Today, Hout Bay is a very popular tourist destination, with beautiful beaches, walking trails, horse-riding, arts & crafts and wonderful heritage sights. The working harbour was built in 1930 and still to this day, fishing boats land their catches on the quayside, where bystanders can make their choice and purchase their fresh fish at bargain prices. Hout Bay can boast one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the world namely, Chapman's Peak Drive. It opened in 1922, took seven years to complete using convict labour, and cost GBP 20,000.
Nestled 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. This combination of stunning location, in-house restaurant & bar, events & conference facilities make this Hout Bay hotel a unique choice.
In 2009 the hotel introduced 22 luxurious new rooms and two magnificent penthouse suites, which are a mere stone throw from the beach. These new spacious rooms have spectacular views of Hout Bay beach and surrounding mountains. The sound of the sea lapping the shore will ensure total tranquillity and relaxation.
The rooms feature flat-screen television sets with satellite TV, high speed internet access, air-conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, mini bar facility, safe, telephone, shaving plugs & hair dryer, international plugs etc.
The Chapmans Peak Beach Hotel offers 3 room types with exquisite sea or mountain views - all with private balconies. The hotel also has 1 dedicated rooms for disabled guests.

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.
