If you want lovely views, a really comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast on your balcony every morning then look no further than Albatross House. My husband and I and our daughter reserved the whole apartment for our 6 day stay and enjoyed every minute of it. A car is essential and a few written instructions on how to use the toaster and microwave oven would have been handy!

Unfortunately, we were not given important information prior to booking (and paying). It was inconvienant to be told when we should arrive. Only after a negative response from us was the option of keys being placed in some sort of key lock offered. But the killer for us was the firm instruction that No valuables should be left in the vehicle. we were on a road trip round SA and had a lot of things in the vehicle from as trivial as beach bats and umbrellas to coolerboxes. To arrive late at night and then have to schlep everything out the vehicle is unaccetable. This should have been made knwn from the start. Unfortunately our request for a refund or even a partial refund was spurned. We stayed elswhere in the area at additional cost.

Hi everybody! Here I write down some thoughts about trip in SA and stay in Albatross House. The best way to travel here it's rent a car, second one using local taxi app Bolt. Hotel have convenient location you can easily reach a Boulder's Pinguins Park and from here is shortest way to go in Cape Point with car. Need to notice in a port are some activity like kayaking and so on, and of course in Simon's Town you can have a good time in bars. I recommend Piping Bosun with living music every friday, I promise you don't regret. The stuff mustsee are botanic park Kirstenbosh, Cape Point, safari and the ocean on sea trip. So, for all questions, you can contact Andre, he will be happy to help you and make your trip even more interesting.

We travelled with the family and stayed for 6 days at Albatross. The location is very nice and the view from the terrace is beautiful over the False Bay and Cape Town night lights. The accomodation was very clean, and comfortable. Both od bedrooms are having bathrooms and double beds with a nice bedding. Good WIFI, parking just 5 meters from the place.You would need a car to go down to town. The arrea is peaceful and quiet, the only problem can be baboons, they are arrond town all the time, I would reccomed to keep terrace doors closed all the time and used windows/ there are safe chains . Owner Andre is a wealcoming and nice , helped us to book our leasure trips. We would definitley stay again there.

The view from the Balcony is amazing very high up on the mountain. Close to restaurants, harbour and beaches. The balcony looks out on the harbour and the navy base. We enjoyed the breakfast as well. Refreshing continental breakfast. Will visit again.
