“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Being only 150m from the beachfront at Camps Bay, this guesthouse was perfect for my needs as a single traveller... meaning that I didn't have to worry about walking home alone at night from the restaurants. As well as that, the staff were very friendly, the breakfasts were perfect, the place was spotless, the pool area had a fabulous view with plenty of sunloungers, and I loved the dogs too!

Room Tip: The small room is brilliant value.

We stayed here at the end of November during an 8 day holiday. We had 2 nights here, before going to Franschhoek for 2 nights and then came back here again, and we're so glad we did.

Both times the service was fantastic - really friendly and helpful - always offering lifts to local tourist attractions, which is way above and beyond. The breakfast was excellent - the options vast and always tasty. You could have whatever you wanted regarding a hot breakfast and there was always plenty of fruit, yoghurts, cheese and ham etc to chose from. More often than not, breakfast was so good and filling it kept us going right through until supper time.

The room (we stayed in the same room on both visits) was a great size, very clean and spacious.

The location is great - just a short walk from Camps Bay and all the restaurants, and a fabulous view of the beach from the pool area.

We really have no complaints! THANK YOU!

My husband and I LOVED this spot due to the location, the beauty, the pool and the breakfast! We had the penthouse suite and it was worth it - private balcony, excellent view of the beach. In a 3-5 minute walk you reach Camps Bay beach and all the shops and restaurants. This is really lovely place to stay. The breakfasts were amazing - fruit salad was very nice, plus menu of options to choose from, very lovely service.

Room Tip: Choose the penthouse if you can- it's an awesome suite.

At first it was just the comfortable room and the fantastic breakfast that made the guest house four star. However we were soon to find staff who would go far more than the extra mile to help guests. First when we experienced difficulties with a cash card and we needed money we were taken to the bank by Bernie and then kept safe rather than being left to make our own way back. Secondly, when my husband had an accident, Kelly arranged for paramedic care and hospital admission and then came to support us during treatment and transport us back to the guesthouse, thus turning what could have been a very unpleasant experience into a bearable one. We are infinitely grateful!

Room Tip: We had an upper floor room with good view of garden and sea

It only takes one word to describe this guest house: PERFECT! But since Tripadvisor asks us to write at least 200 characters, we will list some of the things that make this place so wonderful: the view of the sea and the Twelve Apostels, the hopitality including the good advice in touristic matters, the breakfasts (sooooo delicious), the "help yourself" fruit bowl, the swing in the garden, the shower and sooooooo much more.

Room Tip: In case you are wondering whether the cheapest room is too small for you, well, for us it wasn't...

My husband and I stayed at The Bay Atlantic for three nights earlier this month. We really enjoyed our stay - the location is idyllic, the views breathtaking, and the accommodation itself very comfortable. We stayed in The Garden Room, which had plenty of space for what we needed. We enjoyed spending the evenings after or before dinner in the communal living room upstairs, taking advantage of the great honesty bar and chilling out on the comfy sofas. Everyone was very welcoming and seemed genuinely interested in hearing our plans and making suggestions. Special mention has to go to the breakfasts - we had the best omelettes we've ever eaten here! Thanks for a lovely, relaxing stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden Room - big comfy bed and plenty of space.

This was our first stop on our recent trip to Capetown/Garden route and a very nice way to start. Despite arriving at 9am and so too early to check in, we were invited to have a shower and breakfast and then store our bags for the day. Our room was large, clean and had a nice view over the pool - the upper floor rooms would have a great view of the sea. The location is excellent for walking down to the beach and to the many local restaurants and also you can drive to table mountain or to central capetown in a matter of minutes. There was a collection of sweets and biscuits in our room to greet us which was a lovely touch. Overall I would very much recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Our room was lovely but I would ask for an upper floor room if available as that would have a great...
