Here's what Trippy members had to say about hotels:

"Here are my hotel recommendations broken out by area: City Bowl Area (all of these are small hotels with lots of character): Derwent House 2inn1 Kensington An African Villa Four Rosmead Hotel Boutique Manolo City Waterfront Area: Blackheath Lodge Dysart Hotel Glen Boutique Hotel Beach suburbs (Bantry Bay, Clifton & Camps Bay): Ambassador Hotel - rooms can be mixed, but good hotel with great views, right on the water, and good restaurant 52 De Wet City Retreat - cool guest house with amazing views."  See More

"Cape Grace Hotel & Spa - it's very central - located in the Waterfront part of town, just a few short steps from the Victoria & Alfred restaurants/shopping/etc and we always felt very safe."  See More

"We did a half-way stop at Blyde River Canyon Lodge, which should be a great and scenic place (though we had terrible weather)."  See More

"If you're looking for something nicer, Salt Restaurant at the Ambassador Hotel in Bantry Bay (one of the beach/waterfront sections of Cape Town."  See More

"I've never booked a safari from JoBurg, but in Cape Town, I know that people have had great success with Amber Tree Lodge and Atlantic Point Backpackers Lodge as both places to stay and to help organize their trips."  See More

"A fairly popular hotel resort - The Palace Of The Lost City Hotel - is fairly close to it as well."  See More

"We stayed at a smaller bush camp called Notten's Bush Camp, which was amazing."  See More

"Two places come to mind: Camp Jabulani and Ch√Ęteau Eza."  See More

"And you must stay at the magical Wild Spirit Lodge and Backpackers."  See More

"I would recommend the Wild Coast Sun Resort & Casino not necessarily the casino, although it is pretty nice, but the pristine coastline."  See More

"Nearby is the Pumba Private Game Reserve, if you have a bit of cash to spend on a few game drives - it's a stunning place."  See More

"For a more rural flavour (quite difficult to get to) but another gem of the Wild Coast, Mtentu Lodge, you would definitely need more than 5 days though."  See More
