Atlantic Affair Boutique Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 May 2010

I stayed here with a friend for two nights after reading the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. We travel together frequently all over the world and stay exclusively at high end hotels, and Atlantic Affair is definitely among the best quality and value for our money we've ever stayed at. We wanted to stay close to a friend who lived in Sea Point, and were deciding between Atlantic Affair and Protea Hotel President; this was a perfect solution. We arrived and upon our request, the manager upgraded us free of charge from a standard room to a junior suite, and took the time to walk us through the two junior suites available so we could decide for ourselves which one we liked better. We were overwhelmed with how great the suite was; we had a huge terrace with an ocean view and comfy lounge chairs. The suite was spotless and in brand new condition, with great design and a very comfortable bed. Our every need was personally cared for by the manager, who was always helpful and with a smile on her face. This is the kind of service that can only be expected at a smaller, quality establishment. We really enjoyed the open drink bar downstairs, which offered unlimited beverages free of charge. When we returned from a day of touring, we were pleasantly surprised to see that housekeeping went way beyond what housekeeping would do at a standard chain; our clothes were folded, suitcases were stowed, and our toiletries were neatened up. What a treat. While there is no in-house restaurant /room service, there are tea/coffee facilities in the room (as well as a full kitchen in the junior suite), and there is a great little shop called NY Bagels around the corner, which is a quality deli that offers take out and sit down breakfast food. The only thing to note is that reception closes at 8pm, so if you return after 8pm, you are given a clicker for an electronic gate to let yourself back in and there is a security guard posted outside. A little unorthodox for a hotel, but this is more of a high end guest house. Sea Point can be a little touch-and-go at night so this gave us pause as two women, but we were fine.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of April. Excellent Room, secure parking and so easy to get to Cape Town's many attractions. Staff very helpful and welcoming.

We stayed at the Atlantic Affair for 6 nights for a holiday in the Western Cape. Our over-all experience was very positive, except for the fact that there was not enough hot water for the shower to last two people. I brought this to reception’s attention and was promised an upgrade; however we went out for the day and have not heard anything since. This however seems to be an isolated problem and the rest of the hotel experience dwarfs this minor inconvenience. Excellent room facilities include a kitchenette with microwave, mini-bar, digital safe and excellent cleaning service. Wireless internet worked well on one Laptop (Acer with Windows 7) but intermittently on the other (Dell Studio with Vista). 15 minutes away from V&A Waterfront (by car).

Dear Mr Eksteen,

We have read your comments on Trip Advisor for which we thank you. There is one disturbing feature in respect of which an employee was reprimanded. This relates to the PROMISE made by the employee to upgrade you which it appears was not done. We consider this in a most serious light and the necessary steps to deal with the matter were taken against the employee involved. Our motto is that we are not doing our guests a favour by serving them but instead our guests are doing us a favour by giving us the opportunity to do so.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. We sincerely hope that should you again visit Cape Town you will stay at Atlantic Affair again.

Kind regards,

Oliver Powell
Director

My husband and I spent a week at the Atlantic Affair while visiting Cape Town. It is a beautiful boutique hotel. We stayed in a suite (a small price upgrade from a regular room). It was HUGE! Everything was wonderful - comfortable beds, very very clean, stocked with everything you need, fabulous staff, great location. It is in a bit of a quieter area of town but it is also central between the busier downtown and the beaches. It was perfect for us as we wanted to explore everything Cape Town and the surrounding areas had. Housekeeping was the best I have ever experienced. We loved everything about this hotel!

We stayed at Atlantic Affair for 3 nights. Location was ideal, price was also really good value for money if you look at other comparable places in the area. We could walk to the beach, and stayed in the penthouse which had a partial ocean view.
The suite was beautifully furnished, spotless, and all the kitchen equipment was in top condition. The furniture was also modern and comfortable.
Staff very helpful, we were offered the use of their laptop to make use of the free internet in the rooms. They even gave us a free bottle of wine.
I wouldn't even look around for accommodation next time I visit CT. It is rated 4 starts but I've been to 5 star places that weren't as good as this. It could easily be rated 5 stars.
There is no restaurant on the premises, but this is not a problem as all, as there are restaurants and a 24 hour grocery shop a 2 min walk away.

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor our expectations of Atlantic Affair were very high, but from the moment we walked through the door we were treated like royalty. These people take hospitality to a different level. Many, many thanks to Oliver, Leswell and team for making our stay so special. All the good things we'd read were true, Atlantic Affair is a beautiful boutique hotel and Sea Point is a great and safe area to stay, much nicer than the city centre. All in all by far the nicest hotel and best hospitality we've ever experienced. We'll be back!
