“Wonderful friendly guest house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Before we left for our stay at the Bay Atlantic Guest House, I read the Tripadvisor reviews which were almost too good to be true. Well, it is marvellous in every category. Staff very friendly and helpful - they really can't do enough for you. If you like full English breakfasts you will love breakfast there. Recommend it to anyone. Will be going back

Thank you for the kind words. We like to feel that people speak openly about their stay with us giving would be travelers an unbiased opinion which in turn helps in their decision making process. Breakfasts are, for us, without doubt one of the most important parts of the day as it affords opportunity to chat with guests, establish needs and make an effort to assist wherever possible.

Knowing that you will be back soon is what makes all of our efforts worthwhile !!.

Until then take care.
Warm Regards
The Bay Atlantic Family.

The Bay Atlantic Guesthouse is the best place to start your holidays in Cape Town!

First, it strikes you with the amazing view over the12 Apostiles. Then it offers the astonishing feeling which you'll have watching a great sunset over Camps Bay while you are enjoying a glass of wine on the lovely balcony. If you are a first timer to Cape Town, like I was, you will be lost falling in love with this place by then!

Not only the beauty of the location, but also the excellence of staff and administration will comfort you in the most convenient way making you feel like you have come to stay at friends, rather than in a guesthouse.

Over all, the Bay Atlantic Guesthouse is highly recommendable to everyone whishing to enjoy a perfect atmosphere in a perfect place!

As you are no doubt aware sunsets in Camps Bay can be radically different from winter to summer but always without a doubt some of the most beautiful on the planet, having a glass of wine whilst enjoying same plays a major role in the majority of our guests visits as do the lovely beaches and amazing views. The fact that you got opportunity to enjoy all of the aforementioned during your all too brief stay did, I am sure contribute to having a wonderful trip.

We hope to see you back soon.Until then take care
Kind Regards
The Bay Atlantic Team.

I had a wonderful stay at the Bay Atlantic. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were amazing and the view from my bedroom balcony was to die for. Although set back a short distance from the beach, the property is high enough to give sweeping views along the coast and round to Table Mountain. It is only a short walk down to the sea and the many restaurants that run along the front. I think the location, the views and the people make this the perfect place to stay in Camps Bay.

The Penthouse Suite does indeed have simply amazing 360 degree views. Definitely up there with the best that Camps Bay has to offer ! It is always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay. We in turn really enjoyed listening about your daily trips up onto the Mountain and look forward to hosting you again with your family. Until then Take Care.

Warm Regards

Fantastic location. Private and secluded, yet very close to excellent shops and restaurants and the beach. Stunning views of the ocean, Table Mountain and Lions Head. Wonderful, friendly and helpful staff. This was our first visit but many of the other guests come regularly and it was easy to see why.

Yes we definitely take pride in the number of guests who visit us on a regular basis having enjoyed their previous stay with The Bay Atlantic family. As mentioned being within easy walking distance of both the beach and some of the finest restaurants along the beachfront is an added benefit for our guests as are the wonderful views.

Hoping to see you again soon.Until then take care

You won’t have any regrets if you’re planning a stay at the Bay Atlantic. It offers all that you would expect of a 5 star guest house, and more. Clean, comfortable, and run with a smile, this really is a top-drawer establishment. Breakfasts are scrummy, and fresh out of the pan. If you want to start your day with a smile, ask for one of Kelly’s omelettes - a sight to behold.

An excellent location some 250 metres distant from Camps Bay amenities, it’s an easy stroll to the beach/restaurants etc., and an invigorating stride back up the incline which affords the property such a superb vista. If your budget will run to it, go for the Penthouse - the view from the veranda alone - over the ocean, and the Twelve Apostles - is worth the extra, but the pool rooms look out over the ocean and bay too.

For a property of this size, the pool is outstanding - clean, and big enough for some serious strokes if you have the energy. The sun beds on the pool deck also provide views down over Camps Bay.

With secure off-street parking, all in all, the Bay Atlantic just has everything. With apologies to Douglas MacArthur, “we shall return”.

Thank you for these lovely sentiments.Our location is, I feel one of the key aspects for guests, that and the spectacular views. Cleanliness is a given as is service with a smile. Staff of 14 years + make a huge difference in both of the aforementioned. Housekeeping staff and management are always willing to assist be it with special breakfast orders, laundry, places to see and do plus restaurant reservations. Our motto of arrive as a guest leave as a friend says it all.

Warm regards

We stay here in Bay Atlantic Guest House for 3 nights in January 2012. This is a very familiar and nice location in the famous Camps Bay. The rooms and the environment are very comfortable and clean. Our room "Bay room" has, how the name tells, a overwhelming view to the bay and the twelve apostels. The bar room and the salon are stylish and we had a opulent and nice breakfast. The distance to the beach and the main street is very short (150m), beautiful...
This accommodation is highly recommended. If we will stay another time in Camps Bay, then in Bay Atlantic again.

Our Bay Room does have wonderful panoramic views of both Camps Bay and The Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, being on the first floor gives an elevated view that is difficult to surpass. Lovely to hear that you enjoyed our facilities and that we can look forward to hosting you again should you return to South Africa. Until then take care
