Atlantic House
Ranked #20 of 54 Camps Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 25, 2012

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

Room Tip: Try the Garden Room with alfresco shower and Table Mountain View

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.

We chose Atlantic House as being close to Cape Town and within walking distance of the restaurants on the sea front. It certainly fulfilled that expectation. What we didn't expect was just how stylish the accommodation is. The room we had was extremely comfortable and very well kept. Factor in the friendly and helpful staff, and the result for us was a five star experience. Our flight back to the UK was late in the evening, and the people at Atlantic House were very helpful by giving us a room to have a shower and change before going to the airport well after the normal checkout time.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are well worth having here as the sunsets are wonderful. However, the alternative (Ta...

We stayed in their bedroom upstairs with great views of the ocean and the beach.
The room was large, queen size bed, ample storage space on either side of the bed.
The mattress was firm and a pleasure to sleep on.
We asked for 2 single duvets, which was provided.
Dressing gowns are supplied.
The curtains black out the room at night.
There is a sliding door which leads onto the veranda with the spectacular views.
Table and chairs on veranda.
You can lock the sliding door in any open position - this enables you to sleep with the door slightly open if you so choose to do, for fresh air.
The airconditioning is quiet and effective by over 30 deg celcius.
Ample coffee/tea etc is provided as well as snacks, sweet and savoury.
Small milk sachets are provided. I personally would have preferred fresh milk in the mini bar as experienced in many 5* guest houses.
Good selection of drinks in the mini bar, both alcoholic and non alcoholic.
The only down side of the kettle provided was the fact that I had to find a plug either on the dresser or on the bedside table, as there was no plug in the unit where it is situated.
The bathroom is stunning
Large shower, bath with big sliding window, heated towel rails, and all the necessary goodies that you might need. The shower gels/shampoos etc are of a high quality and a pleasure to use.
Both the bathroom and bedroom have ample lighting but it is difficult to read only with the bedside lamp on, for those of us that need a strong light.
There is no turndown service at night.
The cooked breakfast was good. The selection of continental breakfast is ok. I would have expected more of a selection. If you arrive at breakfast late, the breads etc are not replaced so you have to be happy with what is left. At one of the breakfasts, the croissants served were stale and hard.
Overall a pleasant stay, and all requests were granted.

Room Tip: Choose a room upstairs with a view of the ocean

We stayed here for 4 days at the end of our holiday in the Western Cape. It's a small, luxurious guest house with only a few rooms. They really have a good recipe here. It does not feel like a hotel, nor does it feel like a B&B - it just feels like you're staying in a friend's (very cool) house. Well furnished with stunning sea views from the lounge area and balcony, an honour bar, library and a lovely pool - it really is an amazing place to unwind. The breakfasts are excellent.. The team are professional and welcoming, They look after you and the place with quiet efficiency. Camps Bay's restaurants are a short walk down the hill. ( I'd recommend the Codfather for its excellent seafood in the evening and its lunchtime half price sushi bar.) Only 1 very slight downside, the wifi didn't stretch to the room which if I'd been there on business I would have found a bit irritating. Excellent place: highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had the "luxury pool side room" which although it doesn't have much of a sea view...
