About Atforest Guest House
Welcome to our gracious villa situated in the prestigious suburb of Oranjezicht at the foot of Table Mountain, overlooking the 350 year young and vibrant city of Cape Town.
Atforest was the owner's family home which was renovated seven years ago and changed into a small family run hotel with all the facilities our guests need for a pleasant stay. Many of our guests, often returning year after year, make it their base for exploring the Western Cape. We often find them turning up at the doorstep, having done a stint up the Garden Route or into Namibia, and if we are full, we have to try and find them suitable accommodation!
Piet and Pat are a husband and wife team who go out of their way to satisfy the demands of their guests.
Atforest offers the following:
• Six double ensuite rooms
• Family rooms
• Air conditioning
• Digital safes
• Swimming pool
• Barbeque facilities
• Safe parking on the premises
• Car hire, local tours and airport transfers can be arranged
Our extra long hotel beds assure you of a good sleep and we also make provision for very tall people with a 30cm extension to their beds if needed. We are broadband (ADSL) and WiFi enabled and it is free for our guests.
Our full English and Continental breakfast is lauded all over the world by our guests and amongst the three of us, Piet, Pat and Atalia, we can communicate in at least six languages and give visitors information about tours and whatever else they want to know about Cape Town.
