Ritz Hotel Cape Town

Located just off Cape Town's Sea Point suburb's bustling busy main road, the Ritz Hotel is famed for the rotating views from the restaurant perched above it (and wider than the building). The Ritz is situated a short walk from the Sea Point promenade and the beach, and is close to Cape Town's V&A Waterfront.

Top of the Ritz Restaurant

Situated on the 22nd floor of the hotel, the Top of the Ritz is Cape Town's only revolving restaurant, and completes one rotation every hour and a half. The restaurant is especially worth a visit at the times straddling sunset.

Nearby beaches & pools

Sea Point beach is within walking distance, as is Sea Point pavillion (a swimming pool). Camps Bay and Clifton beaches are a short drive away.

Conference venue

The Ritz has a conference venue for 75 people.


As with many hotels in South Africa, there are problems with theft - do not leave valuables in your room.


In its day, the Ritz was one of the top hotels in Cape Town. However, it is a bit dated now and some guests have commented that it has an old fashioned feel to it.


The Ritz Hotel has 3 stars (although some US visitors have said that it would be considered 2 stars in the USA).

Pool & jacuzzi

The Ritz Hotel has an outdoor pool & jacuzzi.

Ritz Hotel in Sea Point Cape Town

Sean met up with his friend Carey at the Ritz for a Johnnie Walker party. After parking their mini in the "freaky" underground parking, they made their way up to the Top of the Ritz restaurant, which reminds Sean of a strip joint.
