Alta Bay, located in Higgovale, the most up-market suburb of the City Bowl, is set high on the slopes of Table Mountain, with beautiful views over Table Bay and the City, yet only 2 km away from most of Cape Town’s attractions including the Waterfront, Clifton and Camps Bay beaches. Surrounded by a lush native garden, Alta Bay combines understated luxury and urban chic with a laid-back and retreat atmosphere.

Alta Bay, previously a 5-star boutique hotel has recently (Oct 2011) been converted into a 4-star guest house with 3 luxury units. Each unit has a separate entrance, fully equipped kitchenette (or kitchen), a private terrace / deck and offers the following: extra-length king/twin beds, air-con, heaters, flat screen TV’s with incorporated DVD/CD player, satellite TV, electronic safes and unlimited wireless PC connection.

This Tuscan house designed in a contemporary style with bespoke furniture handcrafted is built on separate levels with a great sense of space and light throughout. The Loft (70 m²) and the Bay Suite (42 m²) offer spectacular views of the sea and city while the Garden Room (28 m²) and the Fountain Room (32 m²) have the benefit of the shaded lush garden. The Loft has a bedroom on the mezzanine floor, a bathroom with bath & shower and a sleeper couch which can accommodate a 3rd adult or 2 children.

On arrival, there will be cereals, coffee, tea, bottled water and milk in your room. Should you wish to have your breakfast outside, there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops (open from 7h) within walking distance (1 km) from Alta Bay.

Our rooms are self-catering - we do not serve breakfast.

Alta Bay is not just accommodation for a night of sleep during your stay in Cape Town. It is a serene sanctuary of sun-drenched spaciousness, where you can enjoy the relaxed and laid back atmosphere throughout the day.
From Cape Town International Airport take the N2 towards City/Cape Town. As you approach Table Mountain, the road starts climbing sharply. Take either of the 2 left lanes and then take the exit marked De Waal Drive (Camps Bay and Cable Car). Drive along as the road winds along the mountain, then take left off-ramp just before a small overhead bridge into M3 Mill Street (Cable Way). After the 2nd set of traffic lights turn left into Hof Street. At the traffic lights take another left into Camp Street and immediately right into Molteno Road. Drive all the way up Molteno (it widens into a broad avenue). One street before the very top, turn right into Invermark Crescent and stop at number 12 where we are located.
