“FIVE STAR HOTEL WITH ONLY FOUR STAR RATING”
Reviewed 2 November 2010

we were sooo impressed with this impeccably operated pearl in the midst of the seapoint district of capetown that we personally borrowed the star from our texas flag and upgraded oliver powell's 12 suite hotel to a much deserved five star rating--we have been travelling all over the world for the past 26 years staying in all the five star big hotels--atlantic affair's eight day stay was the most pleasant ever--we arrived as a guest and left as a member of their family--my wife had fallen earlier in capetown and was nursing a bruised leg injury--they sent cards and chocolates to our room--met our every request including loaning us their personal computer for the entire stay so i could continue my daytrading activities and my wife could remain in contact with her business--mr powell took us to a five star dinner on the nite we arrived as we were eight day guests--they exyended our checkout time without charge as we had a midnite flight home--mr powell called us long distance in dallas upon our return to check on my wifes status--everything was above and beyond what was expected--we will never stay any other place when we return to capetown--thank u again oliver-natasha-sandra & isabella--ur dallas buddies--rebecca and richard

What a wonderful experience! For the first time ever, our hotel turned out to be exactly as described on the website in every way - photos, descriptions, location, services, etc. Absolutely no disappointments or problems during our 5-night stay in Cape Town. If anything, it was even better than we had hoped for! Our penthouse suite was like something straight out of a magazine, with up-to-the minute furnishings, fittings and decor. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. Our host, Oliver, gave us the VIP treatment in every respect. Their motto is 'Come as a guest, leave as a friend,' and that is exactly how we felt when we left the hotel on our last morning there. Thank you so much to all concerned!

We stayed for two nights to get ready for our return to Buenos Aires, after having been to a luxury game reserve lodge near Port Elizabeth. We booked the penthouse which was nothing short of fabulous... I think their king size bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on... Private deck with great views, comfy living room, luxurious bathroom, great shower, good quality toiletries.

Olivier, the owner is brilliant he knows restaurants and knows people.... always nailed it with his suggestions. Do listen to what he has to say about places. Everything he suggested was outstanding. Our last night, Saturday, he grabbed his cellphone and called the owner of The Grand and got us a great table outside and a bit of VIP treatment... we loved it!

We arrived on the 30th September for 6 Nights, the hotel staff were excellent and very welcoming.Upon arrivial we were offered refreshments and also received welcome snacks in our room. The room was very clean, contemporary and offered excellent standard of facilities.We also found all three receptionists to be very helpful and would drop everything to accomadate our needs. Would recommend this hotel over the others we have stayed in around the world for the personal touch and without the invasion of privacy. We also found the location to be very good because of the easy access to either beach or city living.

Excellent: Great value for money: Very clean and tidy. IT IS “The best four stars under the sun”. ATLANTIC AFFAIR is situated close to the main arterial road which allows quick easy access to any place one would wish to visit. A big plus is that it is not noisy yet very close to many facilities. The Waterfront is only about 7minutes by car. It is also close to convenient stores, restaurants etc etc and only 100m away from the beach road. The staff are most helpful. The adapter in the room was faulty but Derrick soon attended to this. This place does not pass itself as a 5 Star Hotel but has everything a traveler would need and certainly from a comfort and cleanliness perspective, it is superior to many 5 Star facilities. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in early July. The rooms are beautiful...we stayed on the top floor in a suite - had a great view, comfy beds, extra sitting room with flat screen TV and the bathroom was divine! The people working the front desk were very, very nice and helpful. A great place - I wasn't crazy about the neighborhood - it was very safe, just not a lot to walk to.

This hotel was AWESOME. After a LONG flight we were welcomed by Sandra (manager) & Oliver (owner) who offered us a glass of wine and a few minutes to relax before showing us to our room. The room was spacious, modern, and most important of all comfortable! Next time we go back to Capetown we will definitely be staying at Atlantic Affairs!!
