Dawn and her team were so friendly and welcoming, we felt right at home from the moment we arrived. They were always available and more than willing to help us make reservations and give us advice on where to go/what to see. It was a level of service I wasn't used to since I normally stay in hotels. They were... More

We stayed in the Onyx room. The views are beautiful as you can see over Camp's Bay as well as the 12 Apostles. Room was large and very comfortable. The staff are all very accommodating and willing to help where needed. The breakfast spread was also very good. The only thing I may change would be the bath, it's very... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Atholl House. The bed is so comfy, the room is huge (we definitely recommend the Onyx room as it has a view of the 12 Apostles mountains and of Camps Bay so we woke up in the morning and spent a fair few minutes just enjoying the view!). Dawn was such a fantastic host-... More

We spent four nights here and it was great. The breakfasts were delicious (particularly the bacon), Brendan and Dawn were great, and the view was fantastic. If I ever find myself in Capetown again I would definitely stay here again. Cheers!

Only stayed 3 nights, wish it could have been longer. Brendan and his replacement Dawn were amazing. The views & sunsets were absolutely stunning and we could not have stayed in a nicer place. Beautiful room, supberb breakfasts. Hopefully we will go back.

We visited in early March and were really impressed. It has a large and lovely pool, decent rooms , a great breakfast and super helpful owners. Oh and I forgot the view...as good as the Riviera. Since it was our last stop in South Africa and we were flying overnight we could store our luggage and take a shower mid-afternoon... More

We stayed at Atholl House in early February. The standard of accommodation was excellent and the views from the terrace and at breakfast were fantastic. Brendan and his team were very helpful with advice and booking taxis and the quality of service overall was superb. The choice for breakfast was also very good - fruit, cereals, cold meats, pastries, bread... More
