“Fabulous accommodation”
Reviewed October 5, 2008

Bateleurs is in a fabulous location with views over the ocean, the beach, table mountain and other wonderful scenery. The accommodation was luxurious and comfortable with great style and personal touches in the design of the room. The dining room was beautifully set out for breakfast in the morning and the food was excellent with more than enough to satisfy the largest of appetites.

We only had a 2 night stay on our way back to the UK after a safari in Botswana at the end of August and the weather wasn't good enough to enjoy the hot tub or sunset on the terrace but we were given a very warm welcome and would love to have the opportunity to return for a longer stay.

The guesthouse is within easy reach of the airport and fairly easy to find. A street map of Camps Bay which we found on the internet was helpful for the last stretch of the journey.

  • Liked — Good location, very comfortable, fantastic breakfasts
  • Disliked — It helps to have a local sreet map to find it.

When you arrive at The Bateleurs, the first thing that strikes you is the view. The Bateleurs is located on the highest road of Camps Bay, in a dead end, at the border of the national park : gorgeous view both on the sea and the mountains.

We were welcomed by Jasper and Zonia who are extremely welcoming people and who made their best so that we feel comfortable and our stay remains memorable (even giving us medicines when we were not feeling well).
Jeffrey, the home manager was also very nice and prepared excellent and nicely arranged breakfasts.

I have already recommanded the Bateleurs to friends planning to go to South Africa for christmas holidays!!!

This has to be one of the most beautiful, comfortable Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed in. And, we have stayed in quite a few. Traveling is our passion. From the most comfortable bed, to the lovely scrumptious breakfast, and the grand hospitality that we received, this is a perfect travel destination for anyone .If you like the view of the ocean, and the feel of being in the mountains at the same time, this is the place for you. The view is spectacular.
Jasper and Zonie were the perfect hosts, and we really enjoyed meeting and talking with their chef, Geoffrey. We are already talking about our next trip to South Africa and another stay in Camps Bay, and we will definitely stay at the Bateleur. This is one accommodation that is an absolute must for a delightful time.

This beautiful place was our last but absolutely not least place to stay, ending a wonderful tour of the Western Cape. We stayed for four nights which included Valentines day. We were treated to the most sumptuous breakfast every morning. Valentines day started with the most beautiful and artistic breakfast table that we have ever experienced. Romance is alive and well at Bateleurs! Every day at Bateleurs is an event waiting to unfold. The views are some of the best in South Africa and the level of service is of the highest standard, nothing is too much trouble. If romance, elegance and privacy are important to you, don't miss this place.

A fantastic stay! Bateleurs is located on the hilly approach to the Camps Bay mountains complex and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, Table Mountain and the Camps Bay Beach. The facility is only minutes from one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever visited, ten minutes from the Table Mountain Cable Car and very proximate to Central Cape Town. The view and sun sets from the terrace are stunning, presenting an ideal location for evening "Sun Downers". The hospitality, food, attention to details and service were excellent. The atmosphere was comfortable, restful and welcoming with a great selection of restaurants in the vicinity. We highly recommend the Bateleurs House for anyone visiting Cape Town.

The minute you arrive at this guesthouse you will know that you struck gold!
The rooms are beautiful with views that cannot be beat. If ever a 180 degree unobstructed view applied, it is here. From the friendly hosts, the beautifully prepared breakfast and the 5 star rooms - you will not be disappointed.
