“Perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

Would come back. Great on everything. Location, friendliness, breakfast and rooms.
And my favourite has to be little Rusty the dig that just follows his owner around and stops to say hello to all guests and is a perfect host too.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights (1 night in the Mountain room and 4 nights in the Garden room) and we were very impressed by the Bay Atlantic. The place simply has everything: outstanding location (5min walk from Camps Bay beach and its bars/restaurants), GREAT views, a beautiful pool area, nice and well-equipped rooms and last but not least outstanding service. The breakfast is also varied and excellent.

This is actually the first time I have ever written a comment on TripAdvisor, but the quality of service we received definitely warrants a comment! Our hosts constantly made efforts to make our stay more enjoyable and comfortable, especially Kelly who went above and beyond what I would expect from a hotel/Bnb.

Cape Town and its surroundings are truly beautiful and the Bay Atlantic is really the ideal place to stay when visiting.

We stayed there for our last two nights in SA and got the Penthouse Suite - it has a roof terrace with a fantastic view on the sea and the 12 apostels.
People are very friendly and helpful - the breakfest is very good and its just a 5 minute walk down to the bars and restaurants at Victoria Road.
Highly recommended!

We couldn’t have asked for a better introduction to South Africa and Cape Town than this --- Bay Atlantic was warm, welcoming, casual and beautiful. It felt so much like a home away from home that often you experienced a mental tussle; much as you wanted to go out and hit the bright city lights and amazing cuisine, the cozy warmth of the leather couch, the dogs, cricket match on TV and inevitably interesting conversation with Bernie made it difficult to tear yourself away!!
Perched on a hillside and overlooking the beautiful, happening Camps Bay, the location of Bay Atlantic is ideal. We spent three nights here in the penthouse that had a largish balcony to step out onto and offered views of both the Twelve Apostles and the beautiful bay. This is most definitely where we would like to stay whenever we return to Cape Town. Besides the superb location, great breakfast spread and lovely room, what makes the place special is the owner Bernie and his team who were extremely helpful in planning our day excursions as also advising us on the best cuisine in the area as well as ‘in town’
Bernie, we will be back to swap some more thoughts on the state of the cricketing world and of course, the world at large!

Room Tip: Go for the Penthouse suite!

Bay Atlantic met all expectations on our two night stay. Nicola and the team delivered gracious, friendly and quality service and the breakfasts were excellent. Perfectly situated for the beach and restaurants with spectacular views of the mountains and bay. It is definitely on our list for another stay and is highly recommended.

Starting with a signature breakfast that succeeds in being both sumptuous and healthy, the Bay Atlantic Guesthouse succeeds in keeping you chilled out in one of the more breathtaking parts of the world. The rooms marry the old school with the new, while benefiting from glorious views of the harbour and the mountains, and the guesthouse staff are unfailingly friendly - they also have a story or two to tell. Location-wise it is close to the beach and the waterfront restaurant strip, ideal for a contented amble for dinner after a day of hiking. We'll be back.

We stayed for 3 nights from 11-14 February 2014 after arriving from London. The welcome and location were excellent and we crashed out on loungers in the sun by the pool,high up and overlooking the beach some 200m away with Table Mountain to the rear.
The breakfast was the best we had on 16 days in South Africa driving the Garden Route as far as Port Elizabeth. The fruit bowl was made up every morning with the most delicius dissected fruits. We also had yoghurts,cereals and cooked breakfast
The staff were so nice and freely gave us advice ---we would happily stay again
