Beautifully located on the waters edge below Chapman's peak drive, Atlantic Tintswalo surpassed all our expectations in service, friendliness and exceptional food. The staff made every effort to make our first anniversary as special as our big day. Little notes written in pebbles were left in our room and messages in the butter on the table. The rooms of spectacular... More

We were treated by the highest service and most warm hearted family at Tintswalo Atlantic, We travel quite often and love being treated but this was something out of this world, from the romantic dinners, to the 3 course breakfast, and of course the views and waking up to the sound of the ocean. Surrounded by beauty we did not... More

As home to the most fawned over city-setting of mountain and sea and home to my favourite dining experience to date, superlatives fail to do justice in describing the Cape Town, a destination as gorgeous as it is delicious. This is what makes experience of Tinstwalo Atlantic so noteworthy - that it adds something singularly beautiful in a great abundance... More

Service is impeccable - friendly attentive staff - loads of attention to detail. Exquisite views of the Atlantic with waves crashing right on your doorstep. Spacious private rooms with luxurious decor and finishes.... More

Having really high expectations exceeded in such an amazing way was a true pleasure. Two glorious nights, amazing attention to detail, exquisite facilities and staff that make you feel comfortable and spoilt at the same time - apparently this is the norm at Tintswalo. The location is sublime and the food unforgettable - All I need to do now is... More

Please note that I have not stayed in accommodation at this Hotel but would like to review the restaurant for its breakfast menu. Magnificent setting on the balcony overlooking the ocean and stunning views of the Sentinel mountain peak in Hout Bay. My previous breakfast was three years ago and was excellent. Recently we received a gift voucher for R500.00... More

My husband and I enjoyed Fathers Day lunch at this fabulous destination. A gem, tucked away at the bottom of Chapmans Peak! We were made to feel so welcome by the staff and enjoyed a good lunch overlooking Hout Bay and the Sentinel. Stupendous views! Have not come across anything like this in all our travels. Proudly South African!!! We... More

Having spent the last couple of days at Tinswalo Atlantic I believe it is without doubt one of the most unique locations in Cape Town. Whilst the Cape Town city bowl and Waterfront undoubtedly has its attractions, the uniqueness of staying in at an establishment that immerses itself in the natural environment of the cape peninsula is unparalleled. The ‘game... More
