Best location - central and convenient In a breathtakingly beautiful and elevated position. I was traveling solo and really did not anticipate such a genuinely warm and welcome reception. The owner, his wife and the resident cat made me feel completely at home for the duration of my visit and were always on hand with accurate and helpful guidance and advice on top restaurants, travel info and even suitable options for a night on the town.
Alta Bay offers an extensive continental breakfast, however I opted to have my 7am morning meetings at a Deli around the corner in the charming Kloof Street district. Needless to say - these were superb and soon set the standard for each morning.
Seldom have I experienced this level of hospitality and luxury in such a comfortable setting. I am almost reluctant to share this review at the risk that others discover this gem and then they won't be able to accommodate me on my return visits!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Alta Bay, located in Higgovale, the most up-market suburb of the City Bowl, is set high on the slopes of Table Mountain, with beautiful views over Table Bay and the City, yet only 3 km away from most of Cape Town's attractions including the Waterfront, beaches and within walking distance (1 km) of Kloof Street with its many restaurants and coffee shops. Surrounded by a lush native garden, Alta Bay combines understated luxury and urban chic with a laid-back and retreat atmosphere. Alta Bay, previously a 5-star boutique hotel has 5 years ago (Oct 2011) been converted into a 4-star self-catering Guest House with 3 large luxury units. Each unit has a separate entrance, a fully equipped kitchen (or kitchenette), a private outside terrace and offers all the 5-star facilities. This Tuscan house is built on separate levels with a great sense of space and light throughout and is designed in a contemporary style with bespoke furniture handcrafted locally. The Loft (70 m²) and the Bay Suite (42 m²) offer spectacular views of the sea and city while the Garden Room (28 m²) has the benefit of the shaded lush garden. The Loft has a bedroom on the mezzanine floor, a bathroom with bath & shower and a sleeper couch which can accommodate a 3rd adult or 2 children. On arrival, there will be cereals, coffee, tea, bottled water and milk in your room. For guests who want to have breakfast outside, there is a large variety of restaurants and snack bars within walking distance (1 km). We suggest our guests to have their own transport during their stay in Cape Town. Alta Bay is located high on the slopes of Table Mountain. Having their own transport car will give them the flexibility to explore the region. Kloof Street with its' many restaurants is only 1 km away, which is an easy walk downhill. However, to come back is much harder. If driving left is a problem, taxis (including Uber) are easily available. ... more less
