Looking at all the wonderful reviews here - they are all 100 % correct. We booked a table for 15 people and Tintswalo were fantastic in how everything was arranged for us. Gave me lovely options to put a nice menu together. When we arrived we were all greeted warmly with a cocktail. Gorgeous table set up for us. Food...

Our first two nights in Cape Town were at Tintswalo Atlantic. Man what a beautiful place and excellent view of the Hout Bay. Our room had a spectacular view of the bay from the bed, and the deck. Heated floors in the bathroom. Delicious food, breakfast and dinner, Highly recommend this location if our coming to Cape Town.

Excellent location next to the sea and located away from town. Ideal for relaxing at your balcony or in the common area looking fro whales in the bay. Room and bathroom is luxuriously appointed with many small details that give a romantic feel. There is a fireplace in the room and lounge and being a small hotel it feels like...

After 24 hours at Tintswalo Atlantic, we feel like we have had a lengthy holiday! Every aspect of our short stay exceeded all expectations. The level of personal service, attention to detail, genuine pride in the establishment and the sense that nothing was too much trouble for the warm, professional staff all contributed to our experience which would be hard...

We were amazed at the location, right on the water. The room was beautiful and a very peaceful and restful atmosphere, definitely a hotel to escape it all. It's just the sound of the waves that breaks the quiet. We loved the food, all delicious and awesome service.

To improve something that was already fabulous is not easy, but Tintswalo Atlantic in Hout Bay has managed to accomplish just that, with the rebuild of their boutique hotel after the blaze on Chapmans Peak last year. My recent stay a few weeks ago at this amazing hotel was outstanding. My luxurious suite, which had its own private deck with...

The renovated Tintswalo Hotel is unlike any other hotel where we have stayed. Built right above the rocky beach, it feels as though you are at the end of the earth, free to experience the changing natural beauty of this special location and yet so close to Cape Town. When we were there earlier this July, the climate was perfect,...

We had a wonderful winter stay at Tintswalo. You cannot get a better setting than this: right on the beach where the waves crash, stunning views of both the mountains behind and the uninterrupted vista of the Atlantic ocean. Staff were highly professional and friendly. Rooms are well appointed and beautifully decorated. We had a couple of wonderful meals -...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched above a pebbled beach at the foot of Chapman's Peak, and overlooking the Cape's iconic Sentinel mountain, Tintswalo Atlantic sits sheltered by the Table Mountain National Park. As the only hotel permitted to operate within the boundaries of the word-renowned Heritage site, the lodge enjoys the very best of magnificent, panoramic ocean views, as well as access to the natural beauty found along the mountainside's winding hiking trails. With ten beautifully appointed suites and one regal presidential suite - all of which have been freshly re-furbished from floor to ceiling - Tintswalo Atlantic offers the luxuries of a world-class hotel, with personalized service and attention to detail. Managed by a host of dedicated staff, Tintswalo Atlantic offers guests nothing less than true Tintswalo hospitality, from the moment that they arrive at this seaside paradise. Enjoy sundowners on the deck beside the heated pool and share cooking tips with the charming Executive Chef, venture out to the quaint Hout Bay village, or take a drive to the nearby Cape Winelands for an unforgettable wine-tasting adventure. Located just a short, scenic drive from the vibrant city of Cape Town, guests can also embark on a suburban adventure into the heart of one of South Africa's most exciting and eclectic cultures. Having been described as the most dramatic and romantic destination in Southern Africa, Tintswalo Atlantic promises to remain an idyllic location to rejuvenate oneself, away from the stresses and distractions of modern living. ... more   less
