Honest A

Fantastic 5 Star Guesthouse

Review of Atholl House
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 02 Feb 2024
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.
Date of stay: January 2024
Room Tip: This guesthouse is lovely for couples.

Enjoyed our stay at Athol House. The host / house manager was very welcoming and helpful. She always made sure that we were fine and all our needs were met. She also suggested some activities to do around Camps Bay.

We spent the final two nights of our cape town honeymoon at Atholl House and have no regrets! Our room was lovely, modern and clean and we liked the sustainable and local products they offer in the rooms! the other facilities such as the pool area were lovely as well and the location is great and walkable to camps bay strip (or a short uber).

Ani our host was super friendly and gave us lots of tips for hiking lions head.

Breakfast was lovely with a great selection of fresh fruit, juices and pastries along with cooked options.

The only teeny thing I would say is that we were a little disappointed that it was not acknowledged during our stay that it was our honeymoon (despite messaging to inform well in advance). Ani did mention this during our check out (not prompted from us) and apologised saying she had a lot going on and that our drinks from the honesty bar were a gift from them to make up for it... She said they normally do 'go all out' with balloons etc for honeymooners so it was a shame we weren't given this treatment - but equally it wouldn't stop us from returning to atholl house hence the 5 stars! Thank you for a lovely stay ❤️

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.

We had a dreamy stay at Atholl house as part of our honeymoon. The location was wonderful and the views were amazing overlooking Camps Bay. It’s a short way and felt very luxurious. The extra touches in the rooms were lovely and staff were fab, on hand if you need anything but gave you your space. Felt very much like a boutique hotel and we’ll definitely be going back!

An amazing 2 night stay at Atholl House, luxury rooms, great service and breakfast, couldn’t do enough for their guests and extremely helpful advise when it comes to restaurants and trips. Location is absolutely perfect, near enough to camps bay front with amazing views but lovely and quiet at night to sleep. Wonderful balcony to have an early morning coffee and swim in the pool. We shall be recommending to friends and will be returning as soon as possible
