The beautiful guesthouse is located a short drive off the main promenade in an exclusive residential area. On arrival we received a warm and sincere welcome from Dawn, the manager. Our luggage was brought to our room by the eager to please Kelvin. On entering the room we stood in silence as the sea view took our breath away. Dawn... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in February. Dawn made our stay a very special one. She could not have been more attentive or helpful. The house itself is very comfortable with superb views of the bay, Lion's Head and the Apostles. The rooms and bathrooms are a good size and very well fitted out.

Where to start! We had such a wonderful time at Atholl House and it was all down to Dawn and her wonderful team (as well as the beautiful guesthouse they run). All the rooms back out onto the most spectacular views of Camps Bay which is perfect for the magical sunsets as well as just relaxing on the deck with... More

we stayed at this beautiful guest house for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer! We had a room with a view of the 12 apostles and the coastline which was very special. The owner was so friendly and helpful to us. Everything was excellent. When can I go back?!

Lovely accommodation and thanks to Dawn and her team for making us most welcome. The views from our bedroom (Ruby room) were special at all times of day. Ending the day by the pool was most enjoyable. The home made cakes were part of the unexpected joys of our stay. The home made bread at breakfast was great. Dawn was... More

Whoa! We stayed at Atholl House for 3 nights in early February and I cannot say enough good things about the accommodations, breakfast, service and location. We stayed in the Sapphire room, which was on the 2nd floor. Spacious with great views. Everyone there made us feel so welcome - offering snacks, drinks, help with reservations. The breakfasts were yum!... More

We had a great stay at Atholl House in Camps Bay. Good location (close to everything by car) modern, clean, perfect service. Dawn and staff were all very nice. It was the most expensive place we stayed during our 23 days in South Africa but thats Camps Bay for you I guess! Would definately go back again.
