Reviewed 9 May 2012

My advice to anyone travelling to the cape - base yourself at Atoll House. The accommodation is super , the breakfasts an absolute delight.. Camps bay beach is a short walk away, and has a multiplicity of great eateries , try 'blue' if you are into your steak. Sunsets from the deck at Atoll are terrific.For sure camps bay is in itself beautiful, however staying here allows you to expore all that the cape has to offer---- table mountain , the waterfront , boulders beach, constantia are all a short drive away, while stellenbosch , and hermanus can be reached fairly confortably in 1hr or less. In planning our next visit to the cape we will ensure to incorporate Atoll house. PS Ensure you go to Noordhoek beach , spend the day relaxing and finish up in the sundowner bar !!!!!!!!!!!!

The hotel has perfect view. We definitely enjoyed staying there. The room was very comfortable and clean. Brendan and Katja were very helpful. They helped us to arrange a peninsula tour & transportation. Location of the hotel is as good as the service quality. It takes around 60 Rands to waterfront. It is also very close to camps bay coast where you can find good restaurants for an excellent dinner. We hope to be back again.

What can I say except AMAZING. Having never been to South Africa I wasn't sure where to stay. I am so glad we chose Atholl House. Brendan and Katja were so welcoming and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us. They have a fab team that keep the gardens and house immaculate. The location is ideal and the views are breath taking. They have made our first visit to SA truly magical. I can not wait to return.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sapphire and Onyx room both super but the Onyx room is the better of the two.

We had three truly memorable nights in the Emerald Room, where everything had been thought out with care and detail, from the decorations on the toilet roll to a supply of Grandpa Headache Powders for those guests who insist on emptying the mini bar (like us)! The property is in a superb location and immaculately maintained. Brendan and Katja are exemplary hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is a joy - especially the mango cake - I managed to acquire the recipe from Katya. Yummy. Camps Bay is wonderful as is the entirety of Cape Town. What a start to the best three weeks ever!

Room Tip: Beware that in some of the rooms the bathroom facilities are open to the bedroom area. Fine for us...

A truly fantastic place to stay. Atholl house was our first stop after arriving in Cape Town and it was brilliant. Brendan and Katja were very welcoming and always willling to help with ideas about what to do and were to eat and made our stay perfect. The room had superb views over the mountains and ocean, along with a balcony, free wifi and a complementary bottle of bubbly as we were on our honeymoon (onyx room). I would recommend this guest house to anyone and will definitely be going back. (Breakfasts were also superb, especially the mango cake !!)
