I found the Atforest Guest House in cape Town to be homely, friendly and most secure – the latter aspect being particularly critical for me. Our host, Pat, went beyond the normal call of duty to cater to our breakfast needs virtually at dawn on each of the days we stayed there, especially on our last night when she had... More

I have been to Cape Town several times before, but my stay with Atforest helped make it the most special and memorable yet. A better location would be hard to find as we stayed in a leafy suburb under Table Mountain with the most fantastic views! We were received by our host, Pat who is the friendliest, charming lady who... More

There is a lot I can say about this place. The best thing is Jeanette the manager. What a wonderful, friendly, kind, sweet lady - willing to go out of her way to help you in any way she can. The worst thing, is don't dare ask the owner Pat anything that she isn't happy to hear, or you will... More

As the owner of Atforest, before I submit my wife's reply, let me state the following re this review from a budding young writer from Croydon who found a willing publisher in Tripadvisor who permitted a personal attack on my wife in a number of libelous statements, eg. comparing her to a Rothweiler. First of all, thank you for admitting... More

A very comfortable guest house in central Cape Town. Janine was very welcoming when we arrived and arranged to store our bags while we did an overnight trail on the Cape of Good Hope. Breakfast was very nice and it was good to be able to make tea/coffee whenever we wanted.

If you want freshly gathered honey and home made olives from the host's farm, this is the place for you. Atforest is in a great location with a stunning view of Table Mountain. Piet provided us with an excellent breakfast and the rooms were comfy. There is limited enclosed parking and Piet made sure we had room for our van... More
