Compass House enjoys a warm and tranquil atmosphere. Located in Bantry Bay, just two minutes from the beach-front, ten minutes away from Table Mountain, the city center and the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. The 20 meters long swimming pool and patio lend themselves brilliantly for day-time relaxation and witnessing the beautifully blissful South African sunset. Our rooms offer our guests a warm ambiance, with clear views of the ocean and direct access to the spacious deck and pool area. In our large en-suite bathrooms, guests can indulge in our exclusive BVLGARI amenities. All rooms are equipped with a (high-tech) Control4 and LINN in-wall sound system, allowing direct access to radio and a large music library.

We spent one month in Africa and this was our favourite hotel experience. Compass Boutique has a very homely feel. Olivier, Mark and Chris were very friendly and genuine. They have incredible connections in the restaurant scene, which they volunteered from the moment we arrived.
