We spent a few nights at Alta Bay recently and had a lovely time. The location is amazing, at the base of Table Mountain and near quirky Kloof Street bars and restaurants. The accommodation was clean and comfortable (best bed!) with all the necessary amenities. The owners are very friendly and gave us helpful tips on the best things to... More

We spend a few days at this amazing hide-away boutique guesthouse in Cape Town in the summer. Although there we more than 3 occupied suites on the premises, we felt like we were the only ones on this beautiful, enchanting property. I especially loved the open-air outside shower that's covered on one side, but open to the beautiful view of... More

We had a fantastic stay at Alta Bay. We stayed in the lovely Bay Suite which was huge and even had its own balcony with views of Cape Town. The room itself was beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Alta Bay with our 5 year old daughter in April. The b and b is located in a quiet residential area of the city just under table mountain. We hired a car to explore the cape town area and parked outside the building with no issues during our stay. We would recommend... More

At an enjoyable walking distance from the central Government street, yet one feels totally in suburbia, thanks to the charming green garden, terraces and cutest poolside. The best part though was the personalised service and useful information the inviting owner-pair showed us throughout our wonderful 2-day stay! We found it a new home far away!

We had a lovely time in Cape Town. Many thanks to Laure at Alta Bay for making our stay a very comfortable and most enjoyable one. A lovely clean and spacious loft room was a great base for our family. Everything is within reach from such a great location.

We stayed at Alta Bay for 2 nights and had an amazing time. The staff were friendly and helpful in marking out the area on maps, recommending restaurants and helping us to check whether Table Mountain were open. The hotel is in a residential area, which meant it was quiet and peaceful but still centrally located so that you were... More

I spent just one day at this place and have stayed in a few places in CT. The hosts are so kind and truly want to make sure each host has a good time. They took a lot of time to explain to me what the different paths to table mountain are and that was really helpful. It's great to... More
