We stayed in the Penthouse suite (301) for 4 nights and overall enjoyed our stay. The apartment is spacious, has a nice view of the sea (you can even see whales diving from the terrace), the bed is enormous (must be 7 to 8 feet wide) and very comfortable. The shower is the best I have ever experienced in my... More

I have been staying with Atlantic Affair for more than 2 years on and off for business and pleasure and I can promise you that no other hotel in this area is going to give you a better experience. Rooms, service, additional extra's you didn't expect on the house. Everything is just always perfect.

Can't say enough nice things about the place, starting with the wonderful help provided by the day manager, Natasha. She's unbelievably helpful to guide our getting around, and the evening receptionist just as nice. Room very nice, with a small but adequate food prep area, with toaster, coffepot, and fridge space, and within walking distance of supermarkets. Some good restaurants... More

Atlantic affair is a very aesthetically pleasing hotel in a pleasant area of Sea Point with very easy access to shops and restaurants. Staying there gives one the feeling of living in a non-touristy area of Cape Town and it is very comfortable and convenient. Management and services are superb, it is very safe, and there I'ds also free off... More

Stayed at this hotel for four nights early March and really enjoyed it. Service was welcoming and booked a shark cage dive that was recommended to us- that was an amazing day! I like the balance of service here- assisting when we requested but leaving us be otherwise. Less overpriced than Camps Bay but only a ten minute cab ride... More

The rooms are nicely appointed and fitted out well with everything you need for self catering and a comfortable stay. We had the penthouse suite which had a restricted view of the sea but, nevertheless, a view which you don't often get unless you are in a hotel on the seafront. It had a good balcony to sit out on...

Not often am I pleasantly surprised but I can safely say this place is a gem, Not often do the experiences surpass the great reviews but this place certainly delivers on that front and so many others. From the Staff on Reception (Natasha and Patience) to the Night Guard and The Cleaners each and everyone made us feel so welcome... More

Check in was easy and the receptionist on duty was very friendly . The room was clean and tastefully decorated. Free wifi in the room was great. All the amenities you can think of are available in the room, gowns, slippers, crockery. Ive stayed in a few places in Cape Town and this was one of the better boutique hotels.

Super friendly and supportive staff, great location, and very clean. It has easy to the beach and a lot of great restaurants near by, the parking is a great help as we had a car, waterfront is just 10 mins drive. highly recommended for couples, but maybe not for families.
