Fantastic stay at the beautiful Alta Bay hotel.

Review of Alta Bay
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Nov 2019
We had a wonderful time at the wonderful hotel Alta Bay. It is situated in a lovely neighbourhood, with behind the facade beautiful rooms with magnificent views in an almost magical green garden. The helpfulness and tips for sightseeing from the lovely hosts made our holiday in Capetown complete! Highly recommended :-) 

Reviewed 8 October 2019

We spent the weekend here, and loved it. Alta Bay is family owned and run, and the owners and their daughter welcomed us warmly. They were very knowledgeable about the area, and are fluent in several languages. We stayed in the Bay Suite, which has a private deck above some lemon trees, affording city, sea and mountain views – the perfect place for morning coffee. The bed, bathroom, furnishings, filter coffee, WiFi etc. were all first class. The garden is beautifully maintained and has an African forest/jungle feel. Water is managed in an environmentally conscious way, and is re-used to water the garden. I would happily recommend this establishment to couples, families with children of school going age and older, business and solo travelers.

Room tip: The Bay Suite has good views and is just one level up from the pool. It opens onto a lovely outside area.

Alta Bay Guest House is a real gem. The rooms, built on the slopes of Table Mountain, are surrounded by beautiful big trees and flowering forest plants. There are numerous hidden seating areas around the cascading garden, connected by wooden stairs. There is also a charming little swimming pool.
The rooms are well equipped, luxurious and tastefully decorated.
While the guest house is close to the Cape Town city centre and beaches, it is completely tranquil and the perfect place to relax.
The hosts are warm and caring. They are passionate about the environment, recycling carefully and using water sparingly.
We could not have asked for a better place to spend a long weekend.

Spacious,clean and tidy room wit all the necessary facilities mad it complete. Last but not least, what a view on the city centre!

Very beautiful, clean and cosy B&B. Not too far from the city center (by car) located in a nice, safe neighbourhood. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are big, clean and well equipped. Would recommend!

We've spent 3 great days just before New Year. The rooms of Alta Bay are spacious and luxurious. The views are nice, the pools delicious and the service is of a high standard. Thanks a lot. We'll be back.
