If you are looking for a stunning property with amazing views and immaculately landscaped garden area this is the place for you .my wife and I stayed at various hotels on our 4 week trip to SA and I can honestly say the staff here are second to none and this was the best accommodation on our trip . They made us feel at home and attended to all our needs / bookings/ and local advice on restaurants and excursions. I would highly recommend the Atholl House and we will be back thank you Carlynn and Katja for your hospitality

Oh boy, where do I start? From check-in over the room amenities to the pool - all spotlessly clean. The decoration of the room is very promising - and all those promises are kept by all the little details such as hooks at the right places, additional pool towels, bathing gowns, extra slippers. The eco aspect is carried through and through, although we traveled during COVID-times, there was no plastic anywhere. All products are produced locally and smell deliciously like a herb garden. The staff was friendly and attentive without being pushy or in our way. Water, high-end wine, and home-made cake in the afternoon are part of the culinary perks that one can experience. All in all a good start to our South African journey. We will be back.

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!

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
