A wonderful stay at the Bay Atlantic. Its a great location only 150m from the beach (although at the top of a hill so could be difficult for some) so a great place to base yourself for evenings out and a before breakfast wander. The staff were ever so friendly so we felt at home. The breakfast was very filling...

We stayed in the Penthouse suite for 3 nights while visiting Camps Bay. The suite had a decent sized bedroom, bathroom, sitting area, and a private roof terrace with sea views that isn't at all overlooked by any of the surrounding buildings. Everything was clean and in good working order, aircon and ceiling fan in the bedroom, and free wifi...

The Bay Atlantic was our last stop on our month-long trip to Tanzania and South Africa. We found Bay Atlantic on Trip Advisor and were very happy with the recommendation. We were lucky enough to be in the Atlantic room with a wonderful view over the beautiful Camps Bay, two blocks away. While the bath in our unit was slightly...

This is a pretty easy review. The place is just excellent. Rooms, location, staff, meals there is nothing that could be better. Well done Bernie, Kelly, Nichola , Vincent and the cooks. If I had the chance again to visit Cape Town I would make this my first call.

Amazing place! Thank you, Bernie, Kelly and Nicola for the warm, homelike experience! Exceptional hospitality! Very clean room, great breakfast, friendly stuff! We arrived late and it was not a problem, after long flight we were welcomed by Bernie like a family, coming back home. I hope we'll be back some day!

My husband found the Bay Atlantic online and booked us for a few nights as we were not sure of our plans while in Capetown. Bernie the owner is such a nice man. When we first arrived he gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate. He gave us many great recommendations and made a few reservations for us. Kelly...

This place is an absolute gem! The location is perfect - Camps Bay is beautiful. It's right on the beach front and the guest house has an amazing view of the sea. It's a stones-throw from lovely restaurants and bars, and also the tourist bus which takes you into town, to the V&A waterfront and all around Cape Town. The...
