“Beautiful, Classy & Cosy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

This beautiful guest house is nestled in the hillside of Camps Bay; just a 5 minute drive to the beach front or 15 minute walk.
Atholl House is the perfect place to stay for couples or a single traveller looking for a more personal stay and some peace and quiet. The views of Camps Bay (and Table Mountain) are incredible and you will definitely not be disappointed.
We stayed in the Ruby Room and were really impressed by the detailed touches - from the 'Love' cushion to the mugs! If you are a Boutique Hotel lover - this is for you! Everything is well thought out and you can sense the care that goes into running the place. The bathroom has a huge tub from where you can enjoy the views and a lovely big walk-in rainforest style shower. I liked the easy check-in and not being bombarded with the usual hotel paperwork but rather showing us the room and providing useful information for our stay.
Special tip: Don't miss the homemade breakfast - if the views of Camps Bay don't knock you out - the wonderful selection of homemade goodies will!
Although we only stayed a couple of nights, we will be returning for sure.

Room Tip: The Ruby Room had fantastic views of Camps Bay and Table Mountain with a balcony.

A group of us ladies stayed at Atholl House for our annual getaway in October 2012. Having booked over the internet, you are always apprehensive of what you will find and we were SO pleasantly surprised! Our hosts were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. They were attentive without being in our space, and made us feel as though the house was our own. The décor is modern and beautiful and the view of Camps Bay is breath-taking, with a view of the mountains to complete the beautiful picture. We loved it so much, we will be going back this year :)

We stayed for a week over New Year and had a great time, although a B&B it has the feel of a boutique hotel, the staff were incredibly helpful, booking restaurants and giving advice on everything in Cape Town, breakfast was delicious with lots of choice, lovely pool to relax by and incredible views over Camps Bay, it's a bit of a walk up the hill from the beach/ bars/restaurants etc but this makes it a bit more peaceful - best to walk down and get a cab back up unless your feeling fit!

All in all a great place to stay

We got married on the 15 March 2013. We used the room as the Bride's room on the day and stayed for two nights for our initial part of our honeymoon.

How wonderful - the location, decor & the management team was excellent!
It was just perfect.

The personal touches - incredibly accommodating with the "Bride-to-be's" need.
The champagne, rose petals & candles on the wedding night - it was so special.

We will be going back every year for our anniversary. :)

Thank you Atholl House - we have wonderful memories thanks to your team & the beautiful setting.

Room Tip: The Emerald room - beautiful room, very tranquil, private and spacious. Great due to the space we n...

My husband and I had a great stay at this property in Camp's Bay. You couldn't ask for better views - table mountain out one window and the ocean out the other. Rooms were clean, breakfast was yummy and the staff was very accommodating - assisting with activity recommendations and making excellent restaurant reservations upon request. I hope to be back!

Room Tip: The second floor has better ocean views

Coming since a couple of years to Cape Town, Camps Bay and checked out some B&B's during our stays, we must say that Atholl House is the best and since then we always go back! Starting with the warm welcome of Katja and Brendan your stay can't go wrong! All the rooms have stunning views on Camps Bay and the Ocean. The rooms are beautiful decorated, spacious, clean and foreseen of all facilities. If you have a late flight, you can use the extra bathroom. The guesthouse managers are always willing to help you to book some trips/excursions, a taxi, etc. they have good recommandations for dinner,... Just a great place to stay! Debbie & Olivier

Room Tip: All the rooms are great!

We both had such an enjoyable time staying in Atholl house and we hope to return again one day. Brenden and Katja were both fantastic hosts, assisting us with car hire, restaurant bookings and where to go and what to see while we were in Cape Town. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast is excellent. It's within walking distance of Camps Bay beach and it's restaurants as well as being located close to all the famous sites. I highly recommend staying here!
