“Possibly the best accommodation in Camps Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2008

We stayed at Atlantic suites in Camps Bay for 8 nights in the middle of November as part of our Honeymoon. This Boutique guest house is little known and we had a difficult time in finding it (Google search – Atlantic Suites Camps Bay) but, I cannot stress how pleased we are that we did!

The owners Sally and Ian are extremely friendly and accommodating people, when we arrived they showed us to our room (I will get to that shortly) and gave us information about the house and surrounding area. They then left us to unpack but did bring us a gorgeous Strawberry drink and some nibbles.

The Room

There are only 4suites at the guest house, 2 on the ground level and 2 lower ground level next to the pool with the owner’s penthouse on the top floor, and that helps to create a very personal and homely feel to the accommodation. Our suite had ample clothes storage, a TV with digital channels, a DVD hi-fi, microwave, kettle and a fridge with beer, wines, sprits, water and soft drinks which were complementary.

The layout to the room was incredible, there was a king size bed looking out of a large window and also a patio window onto the balcony which all then look out over the 12 Apostles to the left, Camps Bay ahead and the Lions Head to the right. Both the window and the patio window could be locked open, there was air conditioning but the weather was not that hot while we were there to require its use. Also in the bed area were 2 very comfy chaise longs looking out over the fantastic views

The bathroom was equally amazing, to get to it required walking through the middle of the wardrobe, almost Narnia-esc! Within the bathroom was a separate toilet room, two sinks with a massive mirror flanking which were toiletry storage cupboards. The shower was huge with a shelf and seat below the window. The bath, a corner Jacuzzi bath big enough for 2 adults, was near to the shower. But, the best thing about the bathroom was the fact that there are large wooden shutters that opened up and allowed you to look out over the fantastic views of the Atlantic, there is something very freeing about being able to shower with a sight like that.

Food

We stayed on a B&B basis (not sure if anything else is available but there are enough restaurants in Cape Town to keep you occupied for a long time) but it might has well have been full board! Sally greeted us on the first morning with an amazing fruit platter each. This contained melon, strawberry’s, apple, mango, yoghurts etc, then a plate of breads, muffins, cold meats and cheeses, there is also an endless supply of fruit juices, water, tea, coffee and cereals. By this point you are well and truly stuffed thinking you could not possibly eat any more, then Sally asks what you would like for a cooked breakfast! The whole process usually took an hour but the dinning area is between the 2 ground level suites and overlooks Camps Bay and the Atlantic so my wife and I could have stopped there a lot longer, generally when it came to tea time we were still not hungry after the breakfast we had eaten. One thing that must be noted is that the fruit platter differed every day and it became exciting to see what Sally could conjure up each day.

The House

Parking was a little tight on the drive and if the house is full someone will have to park on the road outside the house. Up stairs is the dinning area, then downstairs is a lounge area with a small ‘bar’, sofas, books and collection of DVD’s. There is also a laptop for internet use along with wireless internet access if you have your own. Outside is the infinity pool which is solar panel heated and a small garden area lovely for relaxing in, each room has its own sun lounger’s on each respective balcony area. The house has large windows throughout and as a result is very light and airy, it is a shame we were sight seeing because we could have just stayed in all day.

General

This accommodation is not to be missed, it is a little expensive but that is more than repaid by the service and standards applied. We had a fantastic time at Atlantic suites and would definitely return should we visit Cape Town again, a massive thank you to Sally, Ian, Hilda, Ellius and Socks for making our stay in Camps Bay an extremely memorable one.
