Atlanticview Boutique Hotel


Atlanticview Boutique Hotel review 16 Users say 5/5 Rate it

As the name suggests, the views from this perfectly placed intimate hotel are superb. A rim flow pool leads the eye to the azure Atlantic Ocean and floor-to-ceiling windows mean that beautiful seascapes are never out of sight. Guestroom interiors are opulent with Afro touches, while details like daily sundowners and snacks and a well-equipped gym ensure guests' comfort.

The three most important aspects of a good hotel are location, great rooms, and quality service. The Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel is seemingly unmatched at all three of these aspects. As the name suggests, the hotel’s hillside, Camps Bay location has a breathtaking view of the Atlantic ocean. I spent most nights just looking out, absorbing the beautiful view of the twinkling city. However, the rooms themselves are also excellently designed. Atlanticview’s luxury hotel suites each has a unique, comfortable, and beautiful lay out that made me feel at home from the moment I walked in. Finally, the staff there are some of the kindest people I’ve ever met. One night, I was feeling sick, and one of the staff members happily took me to the hospital, waited for me throughout my evaluation, and drove me back afterward. The staff went out of their way to accommodate any need I had, medical or just to increase my comfort. I would encourage anyone looking for a Cape Town hotel to give yourself the amazing experience of Atlanticview. You won’t regret it!!

I had an absolutely phenomenal time during my weeklong stay at the Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel.

I’ve stayed in a number of five-star hotels all around the world, and this gorgeous Cape Town hotel was far and away my favorite of the bunch. To begin with, the accommodations were the best hotel rooms I had ever seen. I shared a queen-sized bed with a very close friend of mine, from which we had luscious views of both the bay below us and Table Mountain above us. The room was decorated exquisitely, bringing to mind both the culture of the region and an international elegance through a creative intertwining of safari motifs and geometric elements. Our en suite restroom came equipped with a bathtub and separate shower stall, both of which I made pleasant use of, taking advantage of the provided bath salts. Additionally, just outside our room was the absolutely sublime swimming pool, boasting views to rival those of our suite.

Our mornings began with the delivery to our suite of an absolutely decadent (and fully complimentary) breakfast spread, ranging from passionfruit parfaits to perfectly poached pears; I still have dreams about those delicious morsels. After breakfast, we were free to explore the city, the center of which was very conveniently located just a short drive away from our hotel in Camps Bay. The location was far enough away to ensure peaceful evenings as early or late as we pleased, while close enough to provide essentially no barrier to our happy exploration.

Our evenings at the hotel began just as pleasantly as our mornings, due to the daily wine hour, or should I say hours: a two-hour period each evening in which we were provided with some very nice wine. It was, depending on the night, a delightful way either to begin or to end our evening.

The hotel staff were among some of the nicest people I’ve met in the service industry in any capacity, and I’ve met more than my fair share of people in the service industry. In addition to all of the personal services I’ve described above, they were always willing to help with absolutely anything at a moment’s notice, from ordering take-out to be delivered directly to your suite and making restaurant reservations to scheduling incredible adventures for you such as shark-cage diving or a four-day safari.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for Cape Town hotel accommodation with luxury hotel suites, exquisite views, and some of the best service in the world, look no further than the Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel. There is not a single thing I can say against it.

I've traveled to about 30 countries around the world, and I have to say that my stay at the Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel is probably the best hotel experience that I've had. It has all of the comfort and luxury of a resort, but the intimate scale makes it perfect for a getaway vacation. The staff are very personable and attentive, and there are a variety of amazing accommodations, like a full complimentary breakfast delivered to your suite, and a happy hour each evening with complimentary wine and appetizers. There's a beautiful view of Camps Bay and Table Mountain, and Capetown is a lovely city to explore. Loved it!

The Atlantic view Cape Town Boutique Hotel has to be one of the most amazing hotels I have ever stayed at in my life. Of all the cape town hotels, this one offered unbelievable luxury and service at an incredibly affordable price. The staff was attentive to our every need! Some of the perks included: a complimentary gourmet breakfast brought to your room every morning ( this included everything you could ever want from fruit and yogurt to complex omelettes) FREE AND UNLIMITED WINE at the bar every night from 7-9pm, complete with an assortment of free appetizers that are still making my mouth water when I think of them, TWO gorgeous infinity pools, breathtaking views of the atlantic and Table mountain, and so much more. Seriously this was the best hotel I have EVER stayed at, I can not recommend it enough. I never write reviews but I was so blown away by the service and the quality of the establishment that I had to make an exception. And to top it all off all these incredible amenities came at a completely reasonable price. If you are in Cape Town this is a must stop. Don't even think about it, just stay here.

We were greeted at the Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel with champagne and the best customer service I've ever experienced. Easy 5 stars for a luxurious stay in a beautiful location. If I'm ever back on that side of the world, I'm going straight back to this hotel, and staying there for as long as I can! What a trip.

Absolutely check out the Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel! You will NOT regret it! I had a wonderful time staying here with friends this July. Not only does the Atlanticview have some of the best hotel rooms I've stayed in, but everything about it is just what you need to have the perfect trip to Cape Town. The staff is friendly and provides incredible service, from a welcome drink upon arrival and complimentary Stellenbosch wine every evening to a beautiful hot breakfast every morning. On multiple occasions, they went above and beyond what is expected of hotel staff.

The hotel itself is gorgeous, with incredible Table Mountain and Camps Bay views. It was winter so we couldn't quite use them, but the outdoor pools (two of them!) are stunning. Camps Bay is a great place with loads of restaurants and shopping, about a 10-20 minute drive from the heart of Cape Town. The suite we stayed in was great as well, with a full kitchenette and a luxurious bathroom.

My stay at the Atlanticview couldn't have been better!

I had a wonderful stay at the Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel this past summer. As soon as I arrived, I received a warm welcome from the hotel staff. The room in which I stayed had a nice setup, including a kitchenette area and living room. From my room, I could walk out onto the deck and access the pool, which is very convenient. The landscape views alone make the Atlanticview one of the best hotels in Cape Town (Watching the sunset from the deck was a highlight during my stay). Other highlights include complimentary breakfast and wine + hors d’oeuvres in the evenings. Also, the friendliness of the staff really enhanced my experience. Overall, I really enjoyed my time at the Atlanticview Cape Town and I would definitely stay there again.

I was absolutely blown away by my stay at The Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiles and friendly faces. The staff was exceptional and went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. Our room had a stunning view of the ocean and was complete with luxury accommodations. One of my favorite features was the rainfall shower in our bathroom.

We enjoyed waking up each morning to the incredible breakfast spread that was prepared for us. The fresh fruit and Eggs Benedict were a real highlight. One morning we had to leave the hotel for an extremely early excursion. We informed the hotel staff of this and they were sure to have an entire spread ready for us the next morning when we left before sunrise. This is the level of service one can expect staying here.

I strongly recommend this hotel to others traveling through Cape Town. Its luxury hotel suites are an amazing place to spend a holiday with friends or family.

The Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel is quite simply the best place you will stay on this vacation.

Between the gracious, down-to-earth staff, the STUNNING view of the ocean and the mountains, and the Best hotel rooms I've ever stayed in, you can't go wrong with this hotel. Free wine in the evenings, a sleek, modern pool for morning swims. This place was just unbelievable. Ugh. I wish I were back as I type this.

This was my first trip to South Africa, and the Atlanticview was just the perfect home base from which to explore the natural beauty and fatastic cultural riches of this country at the end of the world.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A few of my colleagues and I stayed at the Altlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel in early July and had an absolutely wonderful experience. To start off, the service was among the best I’ve ever had. We were greeted by extremely friendly staff and were offered a welcome drink when we arrived. There was complimentary Stellenbosch wine every evening for two hours and a beautiful hot breakfast every morning. At one point we unfortunately thought one in our party had contracted malaria (from time elsewhere in Africa), and the staff actually volunteered to drive him to the hospital on their own time (he ended up fine).

As it was winter in Cape Town, the outdoor pool was a little too cold for us, but the camps bay and table mountain views were absolutely magnificent. The hotel is located in a very nice part of town, about a 10-20 minute drive from the main part of Cape Town. It was very quiet, and I recommend the hotel for an older crowd because of this. The rooms were great as well, including a luxurious rain shower. The hotel was happy to connect us to agencies that managed great activities, from horseback riding on the beach to shark cage diving.

Overall, I don’t think I could have been happier with my stay at the Atlanticview!

Really impressed by the Atlanticview, Cape Town. I’ve stayed in maybe 10-15 hotels over the past few months, and this is the first one that I said I didn’t want to leave. The hotel provides an incredible view of the Cape Town coastline, Lion’s Head and Table Mountain.

It really feels like a home, rather than the impersonal experience of a large luxury hotel. The beds were soft and comfortable, and waking up to a heated floor in the bathroom and a full breakfast each morning was a highlight. The members of the staff were all very helpful and welcoming — the laundry service was just what I needed. Looking forward to being able to stay at the Atlanticview again soon.

As a first-timer visitor to Cape Town, I had no idea what to expect at the Atlanticview, but gazing off my deck every morning at beautiful Camps Bay vistas of the Atlantic and Table Mountain was one of the most breathtaking hotel experiences I’ve ever had. Arriving at the Atlanticview, I was greeted by friendly staff members – particular shout-outs to Bobby and Wendy for their superb service during our stay – who offered me a glass of refreshing apple-mint water and showed my boyfriend and I to Room 1 (the Master Bedroom).

The room was ideal in every way – a bunch of plush pillows, a deluxe king-size mattress, a wide-screen TV (on which we sampled from the Atlanticview’s extensive DVD list one night), ample closet space, dining tables inside the room and on our private balcony, skylights, and finally, a beautifully furnished bathroom complete with bath and rain shower.

For breakfast each morning, we enjoyed a delicious spread of rolls with marmalade, yogurt with fruit and granola, fresh fruit platters, and daily-changing fresh-squeezed juices (the homemade carrot-beet-ginger juice was my favorite) before a hot breakfast of three-egg omelets with tomatoes, mushrooms and savory truffle fries. The coffee was brewed strong and prepared us for full days of adventure in Cape Town.

It was especially nice to chat with the Atlanticview staff over canapés and wine, a daily hotel occurrence every day at sunset. Although I had no time to use the gym or solar-heated pools, all the facilities seem lovely. I would highly recommend the Atlanticview to all visitors to Cape Town interested in a quiet, intimate getaway with that special someone, overlooking the scenic Camps Bay landscape from your majestic private balcony. Until next time, Atlanticview!

From the moment we arrived at the AtlanticView we were given star treatment. Greeted with a refreshing soft drink on the terrace by the pool with stunning views of Camps Bay and Lion's Head, AlanticView was like entering a whole different world and we were totally relaxed until the moment we left.

We stayed for a far-too-short three nights in the Mountainview Room (102), which had beautiful views of Table Mountain, radiant heating in the floors, a bed that was like sleeping on a cloud, a wealth of pillows, and a gorgeous bathroom. The climate control in the room works great, and the turndown service is especially wonderful. Free internet is available in all parts of the hotel and works great.

The hotel has two outdoor infinity pools overlooking Camps Bay (the view is stunning!) and lovely terraces, as well as a beautiful sitting room/breakfast room. We spent the first afternoon lounging by the pool enjoying menu items from the delicious and reasonably priced pool terrace menu. The goat cheese infused with truffle oil panini is highly recommended!

AtlanticView's location couldn't be more ideal. Situated at the top of Camps Bay the view is unbeatable while downtown Cape Town is only 10 minutes drive away. Parking is available on site and we rented cars for our stay here, which makes things very convenient, but the hotel is very accommodating in booking any of your transportation needs. Table Mountain cable car station is only 5 minutes away and we drove about an hour and a half down to Cape Point on one of our days. Everything here is beautiful, and AtlanticView is the perfect place to enjoy it from.

One of our favorite parts of the experience were the complimentary canapés and wine offered every evening at the bar. We had a great time getting to know Wendy enjoying the beautiful evening air and the delicious South African wine. Highly recommended not to miss this part of the evening.

Breakfasts are particularly delightful in the hotel. Fresh bread with honey, a buffet of cereals, fruits, and cheeses, gourmet juices, and of course eggs made to order. And you can't beat the views from the breakfast room!

One of the great things about such a small hotel is the relationship you develop with the staff. Even in only three nights' time we were fast friends with Bobby and Wendy, two of the reception staff. Personal, professional, and with no corners cut, the service we received was without a doubt the best I've ever had in my many years of international travel. Indeed, the staff really took our stay from memorable to spectacular and they cement my highest recommendation to all visitors to Cape Town. If you're looking for the very best accommodation in a perfect location, then look no further than AtlanticView.

WOW! Just WOW. So, I'm the kind of guy who appreciates a good view. There’s nothing better than waking up to a beachfront sunrise. And the AtlanticView Hotel boasts one of those views that just reminds you how beautiful the world can be. Outside of every room is a 180+ degree view of Camps Bay and Signal Hill—my new favorite side of Cape Town. It’s a little quieter and more residential, but not too far from downtown at all. And just behind the property is the famous table mountain, a dramatic ascent that EVERYONE should climb during his or her stay in Cape Town. With twin infinity pools on the property you may not want to leave… but you HAVE to do this hike.

AtlanticView has the amenities and high-quality service of any five-star hotel, yet with the intimacy of a family-run bed & breakfast. Each morning we woke up to the most colorful continental breakfast spread… and as if that weren't enough… we ordered a tasty hot breakfast too. I recommend the truffle fries. Bobby at the front desk is the man. He gave us great recommendations of what to do in the city and went out of his way to draw up directions to a restaurant we went to.

Quick advice: occasionally the internet boots you off if too many people are at the hotel (our second night), but we were able to work around the issue by signing into another room’s account.

Overall, this hotel deserves all the rave reviews it gets on TripAdvisor. The warm and friendly staff at AtlanticView helped make our weekend in Cape Town a trip to remember.

The Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel is hands-down one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in.
The facilities, with two pools, a gym, a community living room (where a full breakfast is served each morning), and a sun lounge take full advantage of the stunning view of Camps Bay and Table Mountain. It’s not far from Cape Town proper, about a 20 minute drive (and less to the cable car at Table Mountain). The hotel is a 5-10 minute drive from the beach at Camps Bay, where one can find shopping, food, and grocery stores.
The staff is friendly and serves canapés and wine every day from 19:00 to 21:00. Wendy, our hostess, was especially friendly and a wonderful conversationalist.
The rooms contained soft beds, an excellent rain shower, plush bathrobes, a variety of pillows (large, small, soft, hard, you name it), outlets compatible with American, British, and other charging devices, wifi capabilities, and a sliding glass door that leads to a porch facing Camps Bay. The hotel offers a warm, intimate atmosphere (like being a guest in a beautiful house), that’s especially suitable for couples or people looking to relax.
I loved my stay at the Atlanticview and would recommend it highly to anyone looking for excellent service, fantastic views, and a relaxing holiday.

Atlanticview Cape Town Boutique Hotel was the best place I think we ever stayed in. The views, service, breakfasts and tour in the Range Rover were wonderful. We really enjoyed ourselves. Especially the sundowners in the evenings with other guests. Those canapés were delicious. The breakfasts in mornings in front of the ocean were like artwork and the sunset suite appears to be the best one for views although they all have great ones. We had a peek in to a few to see when the housekeepers were making up the rooms after guests checked out. We toured the Cape Winelands, saw the cheetah cubs on the way and also did their private tour to the Cape Of Good Hope. The Penguins were adorable but were dwarfed by the whales passing by. Thank you to Bobby, Mansur and the rest
of the staff at Atlanticview. We will be back.
