“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2013

Stayed at The Bay Atlantic in Camps Bay. Location is excellent. Couldnt be better. Camps Bay is beautiful. The staff are all friendly and most helpful. Especially Kelly. Met Bernini the owner who was friendly. Breakfast is amazing. Fruit salad is to die for. Rooms are spotless, luxurious and have everything you could possible need. Went to Hussars Steak House nearby. No. 1 restaurant in Camps Bay. It deserves to be. We will be visiting again as soon as we can !!

The breakfast buffets are definitely a feature in the guest experience as we see from the numerous comments that get posted. I have passed on your comments in respect of the rooms presentation to the housekeeping staff they were delighted - Thank You !!

This was our first stop in South Africa and our welcome could not have been more friendly. Our room was comfortable and very convenient for Camps Bay. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful and we would definitely stay there again

Really friendly and helpful staff and the views are amazing. We stayed in the penthouse suite which was great but compared to other places we had stayed on our trip it was a little overpriced for what it was. The bathroom needs some updating and overall it is a little dated. Camps Bay demands these prices though so you pay for the view and area as much as anything. This is still an excellent place to stay if you are visiting Camps Bay.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for the comments both positive and negative Refurbishment of our Penthouse Suite is an ongoing process with the bathroom area being a priority for the forthcoming winter months. We are hoping that you will visit again and be able to see the finished product !!

A pretty guesthouse in a great location. The deck and pool area have great views of the sea and mountains and is especially beautiful at sunset. The pool is a good size. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean. Occasionally we could hear the road and dogs in the morning which did wake us, but wasn’t a problem. The staff/owners went out of their way to help us. Breakfasts were relaxed and there was a good choice. The guesthouse felt very relaxed and friendly. We would definitely recommend to others and were sad to leave!

We first discovered the Bay Atlantic Guest House in 2000, back then it was our first visit to South Africa. Since then we have made many trips to different parts of that beautiful country but make sure to spend part of our holiday at the Bay Atlantic. We returned from our ninth visit last week, it is just the most perfect place surrounded by fantastic views. All the delightful Bay Atlantic family are only too pleased to help, with advice on places of interest to visit and suggestions for the best places to eat. Happily their reservations some how manage to get the best tables in the restaurants. Our favourite room is the Penthouse, it has a very comfortable sitting room decorated with interesting local art work, a private balcony with views of the 12 Apostles and Camps Bay. The Bay Atlantic is close enough to Camps Bay beach to be able to take a morning walk along it before returning to enjoy a fabulous freshly made fruit salad, followed by one of David's special cooked breakfasts. We hope it won't be too long before we return for another.

We stayed here for the last 2 nights of our trip. We had been lucky enough to enjoy some superb accomodation during our journey and were very much looking forward to finishing it off in style...oh what a disappointment! There was only one room available when we booked and it was described as the smallest in the house so we weren't under any illusions. However it wasn't the size of the room that shocked us but the fixtures & fittings. We found ourselves in a 70's time warp with extensive use of glossy pine everywhere, shelves, curtain poles, drawers etc. The wardrobe looked as though it may collapse from fatigue at any moment and the room safe had lost the ability to use it's combination lock...old age I suspect! On the PLUS SIDE, as I said, friendly and helpful owners/staff and a superb pool area and views.

Thank you for being so frank with your comments. This in turn allows us to address them. Our Mountain Room is, as you quite rightly stated, advertised as being the smallest room in our property and is priced accordingly.Having said that it is on schedule for a refurbishment as is the Garden Room to bring them both in line with our other five rooms / suites. Unfortunately the 2012 season lasted much longer than anticipated meaning that the planned renovations had to be placed on hold for 2013 winter season which is when we historically effect improvements. The latter end of 2013 will see a fully revamped product offering one that will offer a vastly improved look and feel. We are very much hoping that you will visit again when in South Africa and allow us to show you the end result.

Warm Regards

Good things first - thoroughly enjoyed the stay, views to die for, great pool and deck, great access to beach, very comfortable bed linen changed every day, quiet a/c, good breakfasts and lovely relaxed atmosphere. Not quite so ideal? The "Garden" room is a misnomer for limited light and no view as it is below garden level (although this is reflected in the price) and the room could do with updating albeit cool and comfortable. The owner's dogs were a nuisance, they soiled the lawn and the young Ridgeback nearly knocked my wife and another guest over in its search for attention. However, the acid test is would we stay again and the answer is a resounding YES.

Room Tip: The pool rooms and upwards are far superior and this is reflected in the price. If you don't pla...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and for assisting us in terms of providing for guests requirements going forwards. The Garden Room is on our schedule for renovations in the forthcoming winter season when various features will be altered . As I am sure you can appreciate renovations / refurbishments are an ongoing process in a property of this nature. Our 2012 season saw upgrades to The Penthouse Suite. The Atlantic Room and The Bay Room. Winter of 2013 will see major changes being effected in both the Mountain and Garden rooms. Bernie's puppies sit by the interconnecting gates all day just waiting for an opportunity to slip through and up to the main property for a visit. Unfortunately dogs can be boisterous and bearing that in mind we are all now making a concerted effort to keep them contained in their own property as we do appreciate that not everybody likes dogs !! Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience during your visit. Nice to hear that we will see you again - Hopefully soon !! until then take care.

Warm Regards
