Very well located Guesthouse, small and clean
Lage, Frühstück
Atforest is a small Guesthouse in Cape Town, which is located directly underneath Table Mountain. The rooms are small and there is not enough space to really unpack your suitcase. Which is a bit of a draw back, since you usually stay longer in Cape Town. On the other hand the value for money is great.

Excellent B&B in Cape Town
We were made to feel very welcome by our attentive and friendly hosts. Access to the main roads and all the local amenities is good from the B&B. The B&B is located in a quiet, attactive suburb.
Excellent; my wife an I recommend Atforest Guest House to anyone looking for accommodation close to the centre of Cape Town.

Irascible owners
high ceilings,safe parking,good breakfast
I arrived at 8pm to find the owners were out.The person they left in charge indicated where to park my car.She showed me to my single room even though it indicated double/twin room on the receipt. When the owners arrived I asked to be moved to a room with a bigger bed.They said they didn't have one,accused me of smoking in my room(I smoked outside)and of parking inconsiderately. They offered to refund a part of the fee.I declined as it was late and had to alternative as to spend the night. The bathroom was cramped and the mattress very firm. I was however served a hearty breakfast.

Tres accueillant. Près de Table Mountain
Assez bien situé dans un quartier résidentiel
J'avais une petite chambre mais je me sentais comme chez moi. C'est très sympa de la part des gens qui gère ce guest house. Ils vous fournissent de bons endroits à visiter et vous mettent à l'aise. Ils sont vraiment très aimables. J'ai passé huit nuits et je suis très satisfait de mon séjour à Cap Town.

Guesthouse gelegen in prachtige rustige buurt.
Rustig gelegen, prijs/kwaliteit, zwembad
kamer was groot en schoon. Negatief punt: je hoort de bovenburen lopen, naar bed gaan, stoelen verschuiven. Lek in kamer (badkamer van de bovenburen), die is opgelost tijdens ons verblijf, maar geen enkele tegoedkoming werd voorgesteld !! Jammer
