We had a truly wonderful stay at Alta Bay. The guesthouse is beautiful, very clean, very quiet and the staff is super. They were very helpful in orienting us to all the best places to go to in and around Cape Town. We highly recommend it!

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

I enjoyed my stay in this lovely little hotel very much. The location was great and very quiet. You could reach all places of interest in and around Cape Town easily, but stay in a quiet and very green place and relax. Stephan's (the owner's) advice for hiking was also very helpful. And the cat was very nice and sociable,... More

Alta Bay is located in a quiet residential area at the foot of Table Mountain. The city center and the beaches are easily reachable by car. The lush “jungle –like” garden of this stunning villa is well maintained and exudes an irresistible, discreet and sophisticated charm. At times, Egyptian geese and squirrels entertained us from the high trees. The rooms... More

Highlights of my stay at Alta Bay: > Excellent location in Oranjezicht: close to town, in a very quiet and safe area - steep drive/walk up Molteno Road though > High quality of infrastructure and amenities > Sufficient level of privacy offered by each room > Very friendly owner and staff I would definitely recommend this property.

This B and B is situated high up the mountain in Higgovale with views through the trees to the coast. There was 4 of us travelling needing 2 rooms and both were spacious with comfortable outside space. The mezzanine room had ample space for eating and drinking The pool was mostly in the shade and a bit cool. If you... More

We got upgraded as soon as we arrived to the hotel. We fell in love with the outdoor shower and only used our own once in a whole week. I can really recommend this hotel although it doesnt serve any foods or coffee! You can make ur own things in your own kitchenett. Erik & Michaela
