“A real gem!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Wow, our host, Jo, was amazing, truly welcoming, couldn't have been more helpful and genuinely friendly. The guesthouse is themed with stylish African decor, which is beautiful. A delightful entrance hall and fabulous quirky extras make the place completely unique. We were really made to feel at home and able to relax in the gorgeous surroundings. We'd love to visit again! Oh and absolutely sensational breakfasts to top off a wonderful experience. Only snag would be the difficulty in connecting to the Internet in our room.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at Atlantic Breeze at the beginning of this month... And I only have praise both for the establishment and Jo, the owner...
The guesthouse itself is immaculately clean, spacious, perfectly located for the city (Cape Town City Centre being a 15min drive, and what a drive - the whole way you have a stunning view of Table Mountain) and the beach is just a 3 minute walk around the corner, a small square containing restaurants and shops is also a two minute walk away. Our bedroom, the Elephant Room - was delightful! Lovely pool view, great bathroom, excellent quality of mattress (something you don't encounter everywhere), and a lovely hospitality tray in the room. Jo was a sheer delight in every way - nothing was too much trouble, she helped us rent our hire car, booked restaurants for us, she was able to suggest fabulous days out to places we would never have found otherwise! I also have to mention the Breakfast she provides is fabulous - really out of this world!
Jo has created a wonderful environment in her Guesthouse - truly is a home from home feel.. Thank you Jo for a fabulous stay in your Guesthouse - you helped us fall in love with Cape Town and I think we shall be forever grateful to you for that!

My booking using Booking.Com was acknowledged by Jo, the owner within a couple of hours. This was a great start.
Behind a plain facade to the premises lies a superb entrance way with a modern staircase leading up to the good sized rooms.
We booked a picnic so that we could enjoy a summer concert at Kirstenbosch Gardens. This was first rate and breakfast was even better with a choice of hot, cold dishes, fresh fruits,cereals etc. There were at least 6 hot dishes to choose from, each individually cooked to perfection. To finish home made jams and marmalade to accompany the toast.
At the end of the day one could relax by the pool and enjoy a glass of wine.

Jo the owner was helpful in arranging dinner reservations. The Bloufish is really good.
The premises are located with 200 metres of Sunset Beach which has fantastic views of Table Mountain. Downtown Cape Town and Waterfront are less than 30 minutes drive south.

About 400 metres away is a small shopping plaza with petrol station, Woolworths Food ( M and S to UK residents),and wine shop.

Unlike one reviewer I do not care if the TV has a flat screen or not, there is one in the guest lounge and 10 channels are enough when you are away from home.
The interior had nice touches to make it that little bit different and homely.

Jo Clarke provided us with an excellent holiday experience over the New Year period and we cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Check your requirements as the rooms do differ in size. We had no problems with "Hippo" wh...

My wife and i have stayed at this guest house 4 times now. The new owner Jo recently took over and didn't disappoint us at all. We were made to feel very welcome and she couldn't do enough for us. Do not think of staying in any other guest house if you want to stay in this area, you will not better the service and surroundings.
Thanks again Jo for making us feel so comfortable.

I have stayed at many Guesthouses in the Western Cape, and I would put Atlantic Breeze at the top of my list.... Jo, the owner was utterly delightful, very helpful and provides the best Breakfast I have ever eaten in any Guesthouse anywhere in the world, providing both a buffet and a menu for cooked breakfast which was more extensive than in any other establishment I remember staying in! My room was spacious, immaculate (as was the entire establishment), and had every comfort I required. The location is ideal, a short 15minute drive and you are in central Cape Town, and the Guesthouse is a short 2 minute walk from the stunning Sunset Beach, where the view of Table Mountain is not to be bettered! I will certainly be returning for future visits - I cannot rate this establishment highly enough!

Having taken the time & trouble to search for a place to stay I was somewhat dissapointed with Atlantic Breeze. The website picture of the reception bear no resembelncde whatsoever to the actual guest house - you think you're going to stay in an upmarket venue whereas the actual reception if slightly tacky.
Not sure who has reviewed the front rooms, from 06.00 onwards you hear nothing but car & buses as the guest house stands on the junction of a main road, Buses drop maids who are on route to work, you hear every word of their conversation. You'd need to be a very heavy sleeper not to be woken up. Took the libery of looking in the corner rooms, no a/c nor indeed a flat screen t.v. in sight. I would suggest Trip Advisor vist and inspect this guest house to verify my comments

Thank you for your review and the points you raised. We take all reviews very seriously be them positive or negative. We are sorry you found your room at the front of the Guesthouse busy with traffic early morning; unfortunately we cannot improve upon our location in relation to the road.
We are further sorry that you were disappointed with our reception area upon arrival when you compared this to a photo of our entrance on our website. However we must reaffirm that the photo displayed under “Welcome to our Guesthouse” on our website is an accurate portrayal of our Guesthouse entrance of which we are justly proud.
We do have 3 rooms that are without aircon and we have no flat screen TV’s in any rooms at present. However 5 rooms have aircon & all our rooms have TV’s that operate successfully with 10 channels and we trust this element would not have affected your stay . Owning and running a Guesthouse one is constantly striving to improve facilities for the benefit of our guests and flat screen TV’s are on our list. Thank you again for visiting our Guesthouse.

A warm, friendly and welcoming hospitality by Jo, her establishment is
relaxing and comfortable while breakfast is amazing. An excellent value for money. The great sunset view is just 2 minutes away while the city of Cape Town can easily accessed by public bus.

I enjoyed my stay for three days and I plan to return.
