Review of Atholl House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 09 Dec 2020
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.
Date of stay: December 2020
Room Tip: Great views in all rooms, great interior design

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

I had booked this hotel for my two friends to start their trip to South Africa and it was excellent. The whole process from booking to the actual stay was wonderful, attentive, eye for detail. Their rooms are beautiful, nice modern interior and a terrace with beautiful views over Camps Bay and Table mountain in the back of the property. While it it in a quiet area of Camps Bay, it is close to all amenities. Excellent choice for a stay in Cape Town.

I absolutely adored my stay at Atholl House. The rooms were incredible (the cocomat beds are a dream - literally!) and I was most impressed by the attentiveness of the staff. We let them know before coming that we were vegan and they made such a huge effort to accommodate us. They laid out a vegan snack board and had all vegan options and everything! Thank you everyone for all the care!
