Absolute luxury!
My family and I recently stayed at Atholl House the night before my wedding and we got ready on the big day with my bridesmaids there. You cannot ask for a more beautiful location and view, and magnificent rooms that are impeccably kept! You have access to the beautiful house and pool - you do not need to move anywhere and can relax as if you were in your own home 😊 Carlynn is fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure that everything for the weekend was perfectly arranged! I even had someone dedicated to me on the day to make sure that I had everything that I needed. The home made breakfast that they prepared for everyone was delicious - waking up to the smell of muffins baking in the morning was too divine. My husband and I stayed there the night of the wedding and we came back to a romantically decorated room, with a personal touch of a chocolate cake in the fridge for us! We love this gem of a place and can’t wait to be back!

Perfection in every detail
Where to start: Our stay at Atholl House was one of the best experiences we ever had - and we travel a lot!
From A-Z the team does everything possible to make you feel welcome and comfy. We arrived super early, but they let us check into our room already and we even were served their absolutely delicious breakfast for free that day. Self baked goods, heavenly eggs & juices. Nothing more to ask for.
And THAT VIEW. We ordered in every night since we just did not find a better view in Camps Bay during sunset and dinner.
Karlynn & her team make sure that you have everything you need and more. They even surprised us with little snacks and drinks along the day. Unique & special.
The only thing we regret is that we did not stay longer and we‘ll definitely be back next time!
Thanks Karlynn & Team for making our start to the SA journey so extra special!

Superb, stylish guesthouse with the warmest of welcomes
We loved Atholl House. It is beautifully designed and a complete pleasure to spend time in - everything has been thought through from the lighting to the veranda seating areas - plenty of shady and sunny spots. The beds are unbelievably comfortable and the ever-helpful and smiley Carlynn and colleagues produce the freshest, yummiest breakfasts. It's a steep walk down to the beach and restaurants but Uber will bring you back up the hill. Recommended without reservation.

Great views and sleeping experience
What an amazing stay we've had at Atholl House! A very classy accommodation, with breathtaking views over Camps Bay.

Hospitality is out of the ordinary in every way. To name a few: the delicate fruit salad and homemade granola as part of breakfast, complimentary coffee, tea and fruit around the clock, the view from the comfortable pool bed, the tastefully decorated rooms. And... let's not forget: some of the best beds I've ever slept in. They take sleeping serious here. You can choose between 3 types of mattresses and 4 types of pillows (yes, serious :-)) all from Coco-mat. Good collaboration, because I'm already looking to buy a coco-mat cushion in the Netherlands upon return. I travel a lot, but haven't come across a 5 star hotel with a sleeping experience that can compete with Atholl House. And to be honest: sleeping is a major part of my hotel experience.

Would certainly recommend Atholl House to those who want to sleep well, have a high quality breakfast, enjoy views and like the feeling of staying at your private Camps Bay villa.

Thank you for the great service and experience!

Response from Athollhouse, General Manager at Atholl House
Responded 12 Feb 2020
Hello Elsadepelsa, thank you so much for staying with us at Atholl House after our huge re-vamp and exiting setup to make guests feel even more comfortable and home while staying with us. So glad you enjoyed our beds. We are simply proud to be the first B&B in South Africa offering this amazing sleep experience with Coco-Mat beds, pillows and pure cotton linen. Our home made food comes second high on our list of well being and to always have a nice treat ready for snack ups. So looking forward to welcome you back soon. Take care xx

5 star luxury in camps bay
We booked two rooms for four of us in late February for five nights and had a wonderful stay. Firstly, the accommodation is fantastic with modern rooms, property is very well kept and great design. The views from your balcony over camps bay are stunning. It’s a 15 min walk into camps bay downhill and we tended to get a cheap uber back up. Then you talk about the service and this was first class… whether that be the most delicious breakfast that is made for you daily - amazing cooked brekkie or handmade bakery items such as the blueberry muffins, which were the best I’ve ever tasted, the cake treats that are left out for you throughout the day, the honesty bar with lovely wine beers and soft drinks, the choice of pillow depending the type you like and then as it was my wife’s birthday they made a cake for her with balloons and card… I would 100% stay here again and would recommend it to anyone coming to Cape Town… Carlynn and the team run a professional and very friendly service that is first class! This is the benchmark for 5 star guest houses!

Delightful Stay, Great Guesthouse
As part of our honeymoon my husband and I stayed at Atholl House for 5 nights. As soon as we arrived the manager helped us put together an itinerary based on our ideas and had a fabulous private driver we were able to book (highly recommend this option!). Her local knowledge made the agenda arranging part of our trip easy. The breakfast is yummy and large with fruit, granola, yogurt, bread and cold items plus eggs made your way. We slept well and loved our room, great bed and pillows plus good shower. The property is clean, easy to enter and exit and the views over the water are stunning. We'd have liked to come in summer to enjoy the pool. Atholl House has power backup so during load shedding we could still charge devices, use the electric heater blanket and turn on lights. Very important! Location in Camp's Bay gives a great smaller feel that's still close to everything. We'd come back for sure. Thanks a lot Ani and Tine for your fabulous efforts hosting.

Understated home from home luxury
If you are looking for a home from home five star luxury boutique guest house this is your place. From the perfect location, 15 walk down to Camps Bay and with fantastic views, to beautifully appointed bedrooms with gorgeous towels and very comfy beds you couldn't choose a better place to spend a few days. Add to that the fantastic breakfast and topped off by Ani, the hotel manager who makes you feel like you are her friend who she's invited to stay for the weekend and this place is perfection.

Fantastic 5 Star Guesthouse
Our suite was fabulous. Ani and Katti who run the place were incredibly helpful. The mountain and ocean sunset views are amazing. You would pay 4 or 5 times the rate for a suite like this in a local hotel. I'm so glad we stayed at Atholl House and will definitely be returning. Other guests were smart and polite. It's convenient for Camps Bay, Constantia, Waterfront etc by car or taxi. Beach level in Camps Bay is not so nice and for couples, I'd recommend staying up here. Max 10 minutes walk down, but Uber is very quick, cheap and reliable here.

Beautiful stay
Our first guest house style stay having previously either picked a hotel or an Airbnb and it is the best of both worlds and so much more. The rooms and facilities are stunning, the staff absolutely amazing and the food delicious. The property is absolutely beautiful but it really is the looking after you get that makes it extra special.

Modern, comfortable hotel with stunning views over Camps Bay.
Great two week stay in The Palms room which has a large terrace with stunning sunset views over Camps Bay. Tine and Ani were great hosts, and Prudence took great care over breakfast every day. Everything is provided, from bathroom amenities, pillow menu, robes, daily treats, laundry and a fab honesty bar - the team couldn’t do any more to make us feel welcome.
Located a pleasant 10 minute walk down the hill to the beach and range of restaurants and bars. Walk back up the hill, or £2.50 for an Uber!! (Which worked really well).
Pool was cold in November, but was well equipped and would be a treat in high summer.
We loved it.
