Nothing much more to add to the already glowing reviews on TA. What you see in their pictures is indeed what you get. Dawn and her team were very accommodating when we needed to have a slightly earlier breakfast on the day of our departure. The rooms on the top floor (Ruby and Amethyst) have absolutely stunning views of the ocean. Wished we could have enjoyed more sundowners on the balcony!

Room Tip: I'm sure all rooms are great. Mum-in-law LOVED the Amethyst - made her feel like royalty. We lik...

Dawn and her team were so friendly and welcoming, we felt right at home from the moment we arrived. They were always available and more than willing to help us make reservations and give us advice on where to go/what to see. It was a level of service I wasn't used to since I normally stay in hotels. They were beyond helpful and accommodating.

The B&B itself is very chic and modern and had a great location in the middle of beautiful Camps Bay. Our room (and the entire property) was spotless and very well-kept. The area was safe, but the house is also very secure.

The breakfast spread every morning was great (yogurt, granola, pastries, meats, cheeses, breads, juice, coffee, etc.) and they would also cook eggs and bacon upon request. We never left the place hungry in the morning, that's for sure!

My only complaint was that when I opened a bottle of water from the mini fridge and would leave it (almost full) out or in the fridge so I could finish it later, housekeeping threw it away. So if you're one to do the same thing, either take it with you or leave a note saying to leave it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Ruby room. It had beautiful views of Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles. It doesn...

We stayed in the Onyx room. The views are beautiful as you can see over Camp's Bay as well as the 12 Apostles. Room was large and very comfortable. The staff are all very accommodating and willing to help where needed. The breakfast spread was also very good. The only thing I may change would be the bath, it's very shallow and not one that you would lie in for a good soak.

We really enjoyed our stay at Atholl House. The bed is so comfy, the room is huge (we definitely recommend the Onyx room as it has a view of the 12 Apostles mountains and of Camps Bay so we woke up in the morning and spent a fair few minutes just enjoying the view!). Dawn was such a fantastic host- every morning she would advise and inspire us with things to do for the day and help us out with logistics providing maps and making restaurant reservations. A lovely place to stay in Cape Town

We spent four nights here and it was great. The breakfasts were delicious (particularly the bacon), Brendan and Dawn were great, and the view was fantastic.

If I ever find myself in Capetown again I would definitely stay here again.

Cheers!

Only stayed 3 nights, wish it could have been longer. Brendan and his replacement Dawn were amazing. The views & sunsets were absolutely stunning and we could not have stayed in a nicer place. Beautiful room, supberb breakfasts. Hopefully we will go back.

Room Tip: Pick the upper level for best view!
