The President Hotel

Whenever Team FinishTime times an event in or around Cape Town, one of our favourite places to stay at is the President Hotel in Bantry Bay. The area is central to anywhere we need to be in the Mother City, and the fact that Bantry Bay enjoys an average of 290 wind-free days per year is an added bonus.

The President Hotel’s pool area is a great place to relax at any time of the day or evening.

The hotel’s website boasts that sophisticated luxury and personal service come standard, and our team has certainly found that to be true. There’s no shortage of culinary options, and the hotel’s The Islands restaurant is renowned for its taste bud-tantalising buffet breakfast.

The rooms offer great lighting and loads of space to work, which is a great thing for race timers preparing to time a race. At the President Hotel, your room is more than just somewhere to sleep – it becomes a luxurious temporary home. Luxury standard and twin rooms are available, as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments for families who may need some more space.

When it’s time to relax, there’s no better place to chill than the President Hotel’s infinity pool. Our race timers all agree that a trip to the hotel’s luxury spa suites is a quick way to leave your troubles behind.
