Atforest is clean, safe and has easy access to Cape Town. Lance and Mama (as I referred to her the helper and cleaner) are very friendly and helpful in helping you to find your way around on your own and attending to queries.The breakfast is eatable, but lacking Inspiration and eggs are very oily when served.

We had a lovely stay at Atforest. Lance was incredibly helpful, the room was clean, it had a great location for Table Mountain and the breakfast was delicious. We spent four nights here and it was a gray base for exploring but we did have a car. We really enjoyed our time here.

The place is easy to find. Its on the uphill side so the best way to get here is by car. The area feels safe and its close Table Mountain, Lions Head, Signal Hill. There's parking for 3-4 cars inside the walled area, first come first serve. We had a great stay and the only downside is their WiFi didn't... More

Atforest offers a clean, safe and tranquil place in a very favourable location near to Cape Town's main attractions. The staff ist very friendly and helpful in helping you to find your way around on your own. For a single traveller I found it a bit costly, considering the small room. The breakfast is okay, but lacking Inspiration - and... More

We absolutely, 100% can't recommend Atforest enough! We were lucky to meet one of the owners Pat while traveling in Ireland and at her suggestion we couldn't wait to accept her invitation and stay when we visited Cape Town. The location is fantastic, we rented a car and the gated parking lot was great. It really is in the perfect... More

Not far from the airport. Wonderful helpful, friendly hosts. Pat went out of her way to give directions on arrival as some luggage had not transferred flighs from UK and lots of advice for SA novices. Glad we stayed 2 nights so luggage could catch up, and also returned to Pat at the end of our trip for a family... More

I found the Atforest Guest House in cape Town to be homely, friendly and most secure – the latter aspect being particularly critical for me. Our host, Pat, went beyond the normal call of duty to cater to our breakfast needs virtually at dawn on each of the days we stayed there, especially on our last night when she had... More
