Historical Traveler Reviews Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel Camps Bay
Beautiful and Relaxing
The accommodations at the Atlanticview were perfect for our family vacation to South Africa. Traveling with adult children, it offered beautiful and private rooms. We also had a magnificent view of the ocean and sunsets! Had the weather been warmer, we would have certainly tried out the lovely pool. Breakfasts were also incredible and the staff completely accommodating and friendly. If we hadn't visited with a few other guests while enjoying complimentary evening cocktails, we would have thought we were the only guests -- it's that private! It is also just minutes away from anything you wish to see in Cape Town. Positively a "thumbs-up!"
Although we live near Cape Town ,we seldom get a chance to get to town.So we decided to spend the weekend in Camps Bay.Our choice of Atlantic View was from the local Portfolio Retreats Collection magazine.
The review was very positive but didnt do this awesome villa justice at all!
From the warm welcome of the friendly staff to the breathtaking views from the private wooden balcany,we were blown away!
Our suite was tastefully decorated.Beautiful linen on the queen sized bed(which was sprinkled with differerent coloured rose petals when we returned each night!)A huge stunning bathroom with a massive marble bath and even a green marble carved statue in the shower!
The fully stocked mini bar was reasonably priced and the continental breakfast served in the room each morning was awsome.A sumptuous medley of strawberries,kiwi fruit,slices of orange,apple,pineapple and paw-paw on 2 kebab skewers served with yoghurt,fresh bread and steaming croissants.
Across the corridor from our room was an enclosed, airconditioned brand new fully equipped gym!(most of the equipment having private flat sceen TVs to watch while you sweat off last night's dinner!)
The views as we have said were fantastic.Camps bay beach below,Lions head and Table mountain to the right and the sun setting over the Atlantic ahead.
Sorry to gush but the place deserves it!
We will be back soon!
Lovely, well-appointed guest house
My husband and I stayed at the Atlantic View this past May for 3 days to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It was everything we had hoped for! I should mention that we had made our reservation last year in March only to have to cancel 5 days before our trip because my husband was ill. The owner was kind enough to honor our reservation almost a YEAR later with no additional charge -- and he upgraded us to a suite. We were also treated very kindly by the house staff who always made sure we were comfortable and well-cared for. We had to get up early two mornings for shark dives and tours and on both occaisions we were given breakfast before normal serving hours. And, OH what a breakfast! It was delicious and almost more than we both could eat.
The guest house itself is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful views, comfortable beds and furniture and great extras like a sauna and gym with views of the ocean. The house is well-situated to enjoy the beauty of Camps Bay and the mountains behind the house. Sitting on the terraces, you can enjoy 360 degree views of both Camps Bay, Lions Head and Table Mountain.
This is definitely a hotel where you need to stay more than a weekend in order to enjoy all it has to offer. My only regret is that we had so many tours and activities planned that we didn't have much time to enjoy all that we wanted to. I would have loved to have just lazed around for at least an afternoon in order to enjoy more of our beautiful suite!
Perfect & Amazing
My partner and I stayed at the Atlanticview in March for 4 nights. The stay was a perfect end to our holiday in Namibia and South Africa. The staff is excellent in being available when you need them and out of the way when you wish to be alone. The sundowner drinks in the living room is a wonderful opportunity to chat with other guests or Greg & Rainer about sightseeing, restaurants etc before you venture out to explore the nightlife yourself. Our room were stunning and I fail to understand if anyone can complain over these; beautifully decorated large bathrooms, the most amazing comfortable bed and lovely breakfast. I cannot recommend the Atlanticview highly enough.
How absoutley fantastic is this place, only stayed for one night in January 2006 this year however we were made to feel like kings, the enviroment is amazing, the surrondings were awesome and would we go back .... you bet!
My husband & I spent a wonderful 5 nights at the Atlantic View in Janaury. Not only were we celebrating my 40th birthday but it was out first holiday without children for 7 years. We deliberately chose somewhere that we would not go to with the children and the Atlantic View was perfect. The accomodation is fantastic and the staff are really helpful but what made it for us was the drinks and nibbles at sunset where all the guest gather to chat about the day, share a bottle (or six) of fantastic South African wine and have a few nibbles. We met soem interesting people and through talking about where people had been got more ideas for sightseeing and great suggestions for dinner.
The only criticism I would have (& this goes for a lot of the modern guest houses we stayed in) is that the combination of big picture windows (to get the great views), stylish blinds adn early sunrises meant that I rarely slept later than 6am which coupled with the late nights (as a result of not going out for dinner until well after sunset) meant that I came home more exhausted than before I went.
Luxury in Cape Town
Atlantic View was an amazing place to stay. The staff was so helpful. They were always available to arrange for tours, taxis, or whatever you needed. Our room was private and very luxurious. We had our own patio/deck area and were VERY pleased. Breakfast every morning was excellent and the wines served every evening were top notch. We were very pleased and will most certainly come back again.
Wow - loved the Atlantic View!
My husband and I are just back from our first trip to Capetown & stayed at the Atlantic View for 3 nights. We absolutely loved it there & can't wait to return. It was such an intimate and friendly atmosphere within the villa. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It was such a special place to spend time & the sundowners at 7pm were a real highlight.
A Fantastic place to stay
This boutique guesthouse is simply a fantastic place to stay in Cape Town, the location in Camps Bay is amazing, the scenery is stunning, the facilities are of the highest standard and the staff are informative and superbly helpful. My only dissapointment is that I should have booked to stay longer.
We enjoyed our vacation at Atlantic View which is well located and high standard accomodation.
The staff are friendly and the clients all seem to mix very well and enjoy the wonderful facilities and the splendid views.
The owner sets a high standard that was difficult to match elsewhere and we'll definately go back soon.

First we woke up in the morning and went to Two Oceans Aquarium. The Shark feeding and Penguin show are a must. Just make sure you schedule a date they do those on and they have them on different times of the day. The staff there was very quiet. But there were lots of cool things we could do and we got some great pictures!
Second we went to …
This is the first day we were here and we had a good time! We went to Table Mountain Aerial Cableway. We got there a little early so we got to climb the mountain first! That was fun and a good experience! Then you are hooked up to ropes on this cart thing and you go around with a guide! He was a good independent guy who seemed to know what he was …

founded in 1913 as the first botanical gardens in the world with the intention
to preserve a unique flora (in this case, the Cape’s). The history is a little shadier and

founding father of the nation of South Africa, ordered a hedge of wild almonds
This morning I woke up fairly early so I wasn't running late for my activities planned for the day. I started the day by waking up and spending half an hour down by the pool before having breakfast. Once I had breakfast I went back up to my hotel room and got prepared for the day I had planned. My first journey took my off to Cape Town Diamond Museum, this museum had a fantastic display ...

Dinner was in the main restaurant, with Rod and Betty Wade from Canada who are sharing both our holiday and our two bedroomed 'suite'. Rod and Andrew managed to turn up at dinner wearing the same shirt!
Andrew and I watched 'Captain Philips' which was on screen in the main lounge. I was so tired I retired to bed, as it was over 2 hours long. The bit I saw was very ...
