“Good value for money but lacking some atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Good points:
- great views from the upper level rooms and the terrace on the upper floor, including sunsets. 
- great service - staff made reservations for us 
- big rooms
- lovely breakfast
- laundry included in the room rate
- great place to explore Cape Town and the Cape from

Not so good
- bathroom quite cold (but we were there in winter)
- it is a guest house so not restaurant on site  but you can order take away food from an extensive menu
- Camps bay was not as happening as we had expected, but then again it was winter time. 

Overall, four out of five.

Dear Mr Rattay

Many thanks for your review - your remarks are very much appreciated.
The atmosphere in Camps Bay during Winter does tend to be a bit quiet, but the Summer is indeed vibrant, especially on weekends, which is part of what attracts many of our guests.

We do breakfasts at our guest house and for dinner, opt for one of Camps Bay’s many well known restaurants - their sunset ocean views and gourmet menus have attracted many of the who’s who from around the globe! We do have an extensive take away menu should you wish not to dine out.

Looking forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Kind regards
Sally

As a single bussiness traveller I had a wonderful stay at the Atlantic House, situated near Camps Bay coastline.
Although it is winter now here there were some days that were verry nice and sunny. The room was luxurious, service superb, views to die for
and breakfast delicious. Wi-fi facilities were great and could use it anywhere in the guest house at no charge!
Marochell made my stay so much easier as she delivered any additional of my requests immediatley and had a good knowledge of where to go and what to do in the city.

My husband,niece and I stayed at the Atlantic House for 3 nights and it was a joy. The house itself could not have been better or more comfortable, but Sally absolutely makes the stay perfection. Also, she was responsible for such excellent advice in helping us plan our days. Thank you,Sally.

We stayed three nights in this Camps Bay/Cape Town oasis! The location, the views of the atlantic especially during the sunset, the rooms, the pool, the breakfast, the service....
Nothing what so ever to complain about. I have been married for 30 years, it felt like beeing on
a honey moon again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the upper floor and you will have the Atlantic view from your bed!

The staff at Atlantic House were incredibly helpful and friendly. We sought their advice everyday on what to do and where to go and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The facilities were always spotless, the atmosphere peaceful and relaxing and the breakfasts were always very generous. Sally, Marochell and Lee were excellent hosts and they absolutely made us feel right at home. Great location, great views, great experience.
We can honestly say to prospective travellers - you won't be disappointed in your stay here. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room.

Atlantic House is a spacious house with wonderful views, very comfortable bedrooms and large bathrooms. The location is perfect for Camps Bay and an easy 5 min walk into town. The balcony is a wonderful place to sit in the early evening with a drink from the very well stocked honesty bar.
The staff are quite exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble and our every request was dealt with efficiently and with a smile.
Breakfast is a treat overlooking the pool and an excellent selection of local produce. Delicious home made bread!
I cannot recommend Atlantic House highly enough. You will not be disappointed.
So relaxing-you won't want to leave

The staff at Altantic House were extremely helpful and welcoming. The breakfasts were very good. We had a sea view room and the views were lovely across to the bay. The room was spacious and very well equipped. Excellent refreshment facilities and a well equipped honesty bar. The bathroom was spacious and well equipped too. A very well equipped and comfortable communal lounge with a PC for guest use. A lovely swimming pool and deck area.

The staff were very accommodating in allowing us to use a room to shower later in the day after we had vacated our room for checkout before we left for the airport. Would highly recommend.
