You could have an affair with the 12 room Atlantic Affair. The sort of place you don't want to leave. Situated in Sea point close to Cape Town and only a few minutes to the beach and surrounded by plenty of shops and restaurants. From the moment you step into the modern reception area you are made to feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble for the great team of staff. Our room, suite 101 on the first floor was perfect, spotlessly clean, spacious and with the largest double bed you have ever seen. and flat screen tv. The furnishings and the fittings were only the best. Oliver the owner has really gone to town on this boutique hotel. They do not have breakfast facilities but there is a deli and other breakfast places just around the corner. If you want to stay in Sea Point don't even think of going anywhere else.

A welcoming hotel and staff....very knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely want our entire Cape experience to be amazing! From taking care of renting a car for us, making restaurant reservations to simple extra amenities, we felt very taken care of. We had a lot of interaction with Natasha who was just a beautiful person, inside and out....made for such a lovely experience. The hotel had a fabulous local. As first-timers from the States, we were so impressed! Thank you! Jennifer and Alex

The hotel is very nice and the location good, not right on the front but up a side street. As long as you don't expect to be on the sea and do expect to be very close to Downtown then its fine.

The big advantage here for us was the staff as others have said. They are all welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. In a world of standard hotels and inpersonnel service this small hotel stands out.

Stayed with a friend at Atlantic Affair (AA) for 5 very enjoyable days in mid-January 2011 before moving to a hotel in another Cape Town suburb for a conference. AA surpassed our expectations! Wonderful welcome drinks, all-day capuccinos, honesty bar, and bright, spacious reception area. We can confirm what other reviewers have previously reported (on which basis we had chosen to stay at AA in the first place, plus the very reasonable price). The hotel common areas and rooms are squeaky clean, ultra modern, very well appointed; the rooms are bright, roomy, and everything seems very new and pristine; rooms offer every convenience (kitchenette, fridge, small dining table, utensils/dishes, microwave, mini-bar, and beautiful beddings, wonderful shower, AC, etc). The very friendly and helpful staff (Natasha, Cindy, Sandra, housekeepers and night watchman) and owner (Oliver) couldn't have been kinder, more thoughtful, or more accommodating (even indulgent)! Guests staying five nights or longer are in for extra treats and we thank Oliver and the reception staff for those wonderful provisions! But no matter the length of stay, this is a wonderful, safe place to spend time and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or to recommend it to others. (I'd request an upper floor, if available, because it would be a bit brighter--more sky visible through the two bedside windows--than our main-floor room--but we had booked the least expensive category of room. The room itself was delightful though and very airy and comfortable with a lot of effective interior lighting). Having the use of a local cell phone while there, courtesy of the hotel, and also a laptop (because we could never get our wireless email/internet to work on our own two laptops unfortunately, though we could at two other hotels where we subsequently stayed in other suburbs) was also extremely helpful. We also really enjoyed being able to walk along the Sea Point beach promenade during the day and evening with lots of other area residents, feeling safe and invigorated! Evenings we could find interesting, reasonable places nearby to eat as well and felt quite safe. The promenade and Sea Point district reminded me of Santa Monica, California, with the added beauty of the Cape Town mountain backdrop. The red hop-on, hop-off bus stops very close to the hotel, which is another convenience and a great way to see the city/coast/leafy suburbs if you haven't rented a car or booked a tour. We didn't swim in the large heated salt-water pool at the beach (1 block away) but saw many others swimming there. We also met some other AA guests, thanks to Oliver's generous hospitality at a dinner one evening, and that made our stay even more memorable and fun! Some of the other guests were regular guests at AA (both current or ex-South African residents and from other parts of the world) and had wonderful stories to share. We didn't rent a car, as many other guests had, but Sea Point was not as far from downtown or other neighbourhoods as I'd expected. (About R 60 or less than $10 from the Waterfront by taxi one afternoon--after dark it's more expensive apparently.) Our big thanks to everyone at Atlantic Affair for their wonderful hospitality! We have very fond memories of Cape Town and AA was one of the reasons for that. It's an excellent boutique hotel!

I'll start by saying that I would recommned this hotel to anyone. It really is wonderful.

My boyfriend & I arrived separtaley due to his connecting flight being cancelled, I was really upset but on arriving at Atlantic Affair, I was met with empathy, concern and a team of people who really did want to help. The girls were really supportive and when my boyfriend arrived we were offered an all expenses paid meal to give our holiday a kick start. the generousity didn't end here, AA gave us tickets for Table Mountain and champagne and balloons over Christmas and again at New Year and use of a laptop whenever we need it. But it was the friendliness and warmth of the team that really made holiday special; all we had to do was mention something we were intersted in and all the research and details were laid out for us, nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel itself is very stylish, both in the communal areas and the rooms. The finishes were excellent, from the interiors in the room right down to the bed linen and towels and the most comfortable bed I've slept in, in years and it was spotless, the maids visited every day.

Although the closest beach is not the most amazing, the hotel is located about 20 mins walk to some of Cape Towns most beautiful beaches at Clifton and a little further along to Camps Bay. The amenities locally are really good and it's only a few quid to get a taxi anywhere.

I'll be visiting Cape Town again and will definately be returning to the Atlantic Affair.
