We stayed for a week in February as we were attending a wedding in camps bay. The hotel was well located for us as the majority of our party were staying next door. We hired a car and didn't have any problem parking although the hop on hop off bus does stop outside. The hotel was clean and breakfast was... More

Stayed 5 days at the Albatross and was very happy to be there. The staff were friendly, the facilities were good and the breakfast very satisfying. The TV was a bit unreliable, but would heartily recommend it to others.

Beautiful guesthouse and helpful staff as well as a great location. I would not recommend it for Business travelers though, as the main street was noisy during the night and breakfast was served from 8am onwards.

A centrally located, well priced guesthouse near to the beach, shopping centers, restaurants, and public transport. Management and staff are very helpful and friendly. Bedding is changed every day. Bedroom is private and quiet, but flood lights outside have to be blocked out by the use of blinds.Bathroom facilities are adequate and work well. Wi Fi is available for free.... More

The nice family atmosphere, friendly staff, rich breakfast buffet made us up to good startings for things to do in Cape Town, only a 5-10 minute away of beautiful sandy beaches. Very friendly, charming and helpful owner, who was always there for us. We highly recommend her and her guesthouse. We felt very comfortable and would come back anytime! We... More

Pleasant Guest House, Good value for Money. Central location, close to many attractions, pleasant walks and shopping. Upset though, at being given a much smaller room than was booked. Parking very tight, for only 5 cars, inadequate for a 10 room Guest House. Road noise from adjacent main road

Enjoyed our stay at the Albatross tremondously. We were there for two weeks, and really enjoyed the house and the neighborhood. The staff were great. Location is perfect. We walked up to Lions Head, and over the hill to Clifton Beach. Thanks!

Convenient location at Sea Point, walking distance to beach and very reasonable public transport bus less than 500m, clean and well kept facility, helpful and friendly personal, safe around the clock, shopping and restaurant very close, just below Lions Head

Clean and Neat rooms. Large, Spacious & overall comfortable. Unfortunately located on the Main Road so a little noisy. Breakfast can be improved upon - no variety & no meat options for non pork eaters.
