Modern, comfortable hotel with stunning views over Camps Bay.

Review of Atholl House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Nov 2023via mobile
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.

It was so nice with you: best breakfast, nice service, great view - what do you want more ... a good starting point for all excursions. Thank you so much for the great time we had! We'd love to come back.

Really enjoyed my stay in Atholl House. The room we had was great (modern, clean, practical) with amazing views over Camps Bay. I went back and forth at the time of booking, worrying that it was too far from the action at Camps Bay but I needn't have worried. It was very close and in the end I actually appreciated being slightly further away as we had stunning views to appreciate. It also has great access to the rest of Cape Town. Parking is easy, the road is quiet and felt safe.

The rooms are good and the house has a great view to the ocean.The owner is arrogant , not polite and very unpleasant.On our first day in Cape town and in SA we came back at 9 pm after a traditional African dinner at the restaurant and there was no power at the house .The owner was outside and when we politely asked him about the power he yelled at us that” this is South Africa and its normal not to have electricity” , instead of explaining what is the issue.This was a terrible interaction of the owner with the guests of the house who are paying him for the stay and on our 1 day and 1 visit of South Africa.

Our accommodation was absolutely superb, our room was extremely well equipped and was of the highest standard with a glorious view over Camps Bay. Ani and Tina were extremely helpful and very caring and couldn’t do enough for us. We would highly recommend staying at Atholl House and definitely want to there again if we were back in South Africa. We would have given it a 5+ rating .

This is very small establishment, just few guests, Located in a very nice neighbourhood.
Walking distance to the beach, inexpensive access to everything else via ridesharing. Great people, excellent view to the bay.
