I am so torn... these are one of these little treasured finds that you want to shout about but then completely keep to yourself......
I fell in love with this place and wont stay anywhere else next time I return to Camps Bay !
Everything was spot on from the moment you drove up onto the small drive. Staff felt like friends within 10 mins and couldn’t do enough for you.... and like other comments, we felt at home straight away. The honesty bar, the lovely rooms are big and contemporary. (we even had an outside shower in the Garden room).. alongs with great bathrooms with great showers and much better quality freebie toiletries then you generally get!
Breakfasts overlooking Camps Bay great view and to boot a pool area (with ample sunbeds and sun !) It really was just the best.
Atlantic - keep on doing what you do - you make it look so easy.... well done and I am already looking forward to coming back for a visit – this time longer !

Room Tip: Garden room with outside shower.... nice big room with a private terrace garden (no view over camps...

If you want a relaxing, unobtrusive place to stay then Atlantic House is the place to go. This was our 4th visit and very rarely do we return to the same place on a regular basis. The large and wonderful hotels Cape Town has to offer are great-we've tried them but nothing beats the B&B's, particularly this one. It really feels like coming home. The location is perfect. A lovely stroll down the hill into Camps Bay with it's great selection of restaurants is a perfect place to stay. All the staff at Atlantic House are top notch. They haven't changed which says a lot! The terrace overlooking the sea is a beautiful place to sit at any time of the day and the lounge in the evening is extremely comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble, whether it be booking a trip or a restaurant or even a light bite in the evening if you want to stay in. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, bathrooms too. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We like the Garden Room! The terrace is great and we enjoy sitting there, but the Garden room has a...

Rooms are really big, clean and have everything you need. Obviously Cape Town is cheaper than most cities, but this hotel is definitely value for money when compared to other boutique hotels. My boyfriend and I stayed for a couple of nights in Feb and the service was amazing. Felt at home straight away and staff were attentive but not too invasive. Great balcony and minibar! Will definitely stay again. Thanks to the staff for trying to get our late restaurant bookings!

Atlantic House is a hidden gem tucked in a quiet residential part of Camps yet within easy reach of everything. Wonderful room, ambience, decor, and facilities you would expect from a top end hotel such as free, fast wi fi etc. The staff were warm and friendly - couldn't be more lovely in fact, and were exceptionally helpful. Perfect for couples, business or lone travellers as I was. Highly recommended and will definitely stay again.

We just spent 5 nights at this guest house and would highly recommend it. It is great value especially given the full breakfast that is included, not to mention othe stunning sea views, free wifi and exceptional service from all the staff. We had two rooms with sea views and enjoyed the large common area and balconies with views of the ocean. Parking is off-street and easy to access. It is a 10-15 mins walk up the hill frm the main street in Camps Bay. Bedrooms and bathrooms are very tastefully decorated with all amenities. We will be back!

Room Tip: choose the sea-view rooms.

I've been to Cape Town 3 times now, and wanted to bring the girl I'm dating down to see it and was looking for a hotel out of the downtown. Came across Atlantic House on Trip Advisor and must admit all the reviews were spot on.

Firstly Camp's Bay is where you want to stay in the Cape Town area. It's only like a $10 cab ride or 5 minute drive to everywhere you want to be down town, but also walking distance from the beach and a great dinner/nightlife scene in Camp's Bay.

Atlantic house is kind of a cross between a boutique hotel and a B&B. The rooms are big, really nicely decorated, and are kept in immaculate condition. The inroom and inhotel bars are so reasonably priced, Breakfast is free (and very good), parking is free, and all in all the room price is very reasonable as well.

The thing that stands out about the hotel is the staff. They are clearly just really cool and accomodating people that love working at the Atlantic House. Even though agoda booked the hotel room rate incorrectly they honored the price and didnt charge us anything extra. Additionally, we went shark diving on our last day and were late arriving back for checkout (which should be at 11am) - they allowed us access to a room to pack our things properly and shower even though it was 4pm. Honestly they were just great people.

The only thing I would say is this is not a hotel to go to if you want to get hammered till late at night, as it kind of has a feel of adults get away. The place is quiet in the mornings and the early evenings and if you do come back late you naturally want to be quiet.

With that being said it's the perfect place for a couple or even business travel.

Would definitely come back in a heart beat.
