We recently had 4 nights in the Atforest Guest House at the foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town and forgot to write our comments in the guest book. However if we had done so our remarks would have simply echoed those of previous guests who wrote that this is a wonderful b & b where we were all made...

We stayed regularly in this B&B, for the last three years. Main reason: it splendid location, near by CBD and Labia movies, with good restaurants in a very alive area by evenings. Price was also affordable. A recent hike of prices (+ > 20 %!) makes the place now out of the good ratio quality/price it was previously offering. Rooms...

This reviewer went to this same guest house for three years about three times a year before he decided to tell the public how bad it is. The reason: although he accepted the quote, he refused to pay his bill as it was 'too expensive' As I would not budge and insisted he pay the price quoted, he started fabricating...

We stayed in the family room. The room, linen and bathroom was very clean. The futon is not suitable for children to sleep on. Noisy, squeaky floor boards. Breakfast good but very basic and the same every morning. Very limited parking. Friendly host. Will not stay again.

Atforest is just about the only guest house offering safe off street parking for up to six cars. All the four and five star guest houses in the area let their guests park in the street. This 'senior contributer" however, feels that she should complain about the parking. The less said, the better. The double futon sleeper couch in the...

My wife and I have just stayed here for 4 days and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation is really nice and very handy to both Table Mountain & Kloof Street. The pool area also has nice views of Table Mountain. Many thanks Pat for a warm and lovely stay!

The guesthouse is very nice and located in Oranjezicht, which is a very clean, quiet and save area. Our room was a little small but very neat and clean. There was a nice porch right outside the room where we sat down in the evenings and had some wine from the honesty bar - which is kindly provided by the...

This guest house is located close to central Cape Town just beneath Table Mountain in the lovely district of Oranjezicht. The single room was sufficiently spacious and well-appointed with TV, safe, en suite shower room and wifi access. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and a useful serving period from 07:30 onwards. A very helpful and comfortable place to...

We stayed in the family room downstairs. It was massive, the kids slept on the sleeper couch. Plenty room for the four of us. Children loved 'going upstairs for breakfast' and adored Pat who spoiled them rotten with valentines presents and leaving gifts. They loved Molly the dog too who was extremely well behaved and cured their phobia of dogs....

Lovely guest house where nothing was too much trouble for Pat even stayed up very late for our arrival. Breakfast was excellent with special service for the grandchildren who loved the prepared watermelon. Felt very comfortable in this home from home.
