Located just up the hill from the centre of Camps Bay this lovely guest house offers stunning views across the bay. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Dawn who showed us to our beautifully decorated room which was called Amber. This is a small immaculate boutique hotel with only five rooms. All the staff were helpful and very friendly... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and would stay again. It deserves a 5 star rating and other places I have stayed with 5 stars could learn from this beautiful little guest hose. Breakfast was lovely, freshly cooked. Staff were great and the owner could not do enough for us. Wonderful views, peaceful, can't recommend highly enough

Atholl house is situated in a beautiful location and very tastefully decorated. Rooms are small but very nice. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is very good. Only - but quite significant - downside for us: the curtains in the room do not darken properly. They are made of light colored cloth and the room is filled with light... More

This is a beautiful, quiet, boutique hotel with fabulous views of Camps Bay. My partner and I stayed in Amber room for 6 days over New Year. The room was beautifully presented, clean and very comfortable - having had a peek around, I believe all rooms to be of the same quality. The staff are brilliant. A particular thank you... More

In a quiet road with an amazing view of Camps Bay, close to excellent bars and restaurants, five minutes from Table Mountain and twenty from Cape Town, Atholl House is run by the fabulous Dawn (who knows everything you need to know) and Kelvin with his incredible smile and culinary skills...

We stayed 3 days at atholl house. The team of atholl house welcomed us with great kindness & offered their assistance in every imaginable way. The rooms are neat & clean, the breakfast is generous. The beautiful little garden provides some escape & piece of mind if needed. Great place to stay when visiting Capetown!

Location is great for views over camps bay but not so close to restaurants and beach. We enjoyed mountain biking right from the door and the staff were happy for us to keep our bikes in the laundry.

Stayed here for two nights in the corner suite which has the most incredible surround view imaginable. Glass balcony doors meet large windows on the adjacent wall, meaning you get a full 180 degree view of the bay and the mountain from the bed. Very comfortable room, air conditioning was appreciated and good breakfast. highly recommended.
