I just finished my dream trip to Africa which first saw me in Cape Town. Coming off of a long 30 hour trip from Los Angeles, I was greeted by the very friendly staff at Alta Bay who knew immediately that I had been through a very long journey to get to the country. Rather than holding me up with paperwork and a tour, they said we could do that later after I had a nap and shower and relaxed a bit. They knew exactly what I wanted and that was it! They took me to my room which was exquisite and I promptly began to relax and unwind. The staff took care of my every need. I felt extremely well looked after at Alta Bay. The meals they prepared for me were fantastic. The place was quiet and peaceful, tucked in the hills of Higgovale just below Table Mountain. I really felt like a guest in a home. Madre, Robyn, and the rest of the staff really are amazing. I would definitely stay at Alta Bay again and will! I highly recommend this guest house as a terrific alternative to the bigger, less friendly and impersonal hotels I normally stay at on my trips. Thank you Alta Bay!
- 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
