I spent 4 days at Alta Bay and everything was perfect. It is a real heaven on earth. The hosts are really kind and the location is close from the center. Only one word can summarize this guest house: "Wonderful!!" Thank you again!!

Our stay at Alta Bay was simply the "icing on the cake" on our first trip to Cape Town. Not only is Alta Bay situated in a great neighborhood, it is also very close to the Table Mountain where we enjoyed amazing views of the city. But what made this place extra special was the incredible hospitality provided by wonderful... More

We spent four nights at Alta Bay with our 8 month old. Caroline, Stephan and Bruno were all fantastic hosts and really went above and beyond to make us feel at home, to the extent that Caroline gave us their baby bath to use and offered to lend us their own children's toys! The guest house is perfectly situated, we... More

I just spend 5 days at the Alta Bay guest house and I loved it! I stayed in the garden room, which I liked very much because outside it's surrounded by green so it adds a tropical and relaxing athmosphere to the room. The guest house is situated in a very quiet street, perfect to escape the noise of the... More

We were fortunate enough to have a weekend away at this lovely guest house.Quiet suburb. lovely setting but you do need a car. The staff go out of their way to make you feel at home - especially Bruno. Only drawback is the number of stairs - if you have back or knee problems this can be a problem as... More

I stayed at Alta Bay for 4 days after completing a long journey through Africa - everything from the very personal service to the beautiful view overlooking Cape Town from the base of Table Mountain were above my expectations. Can't wait to go back and would never consider staying anywhere else! /Tomas

We stayed here for three nights in March. The guest house is located in Higgovale, at the very top of the "City Bowl" on the slopes of Table Mountain. Despite being very close to the shops and restaurants of Kloof Street and Gardens, the location is very peaceful and quiet. We loved the view and the peaceful deck outside our... More
