possibly one of the world’s friendliest hotels!
Everything about the hotel was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. To find such beautiful gardens in a city hotel was a real surprise and pleasure to walk though. The buffet breakfasts were amongst the best that we have experienced in many years of travelling extensively in Europe and Asia.

quiet oasis close to the city
Magnificent hotel set in the most beautiful park like grounds. Comfortable rooms, attentive staff and convenient locality make this the ideal choice when in Cape Town. Easy access to the airport and V and A waterfront and a stones throw from kirstenbosch gardens. Sit on their front terrace for breakfast or lunch and enjoy spectacular garden and mountain views. You may even see the giant tortoise stroll by! So peaceful you will think you are in the country. We will definitely be back for a repeat visit.

old world charm & hospitality only 15 mins from cape town cbd
This beautiful & long established hotel, situated in the suburb of Newlands oozes old world charm & elegance. Well trained & courteous staff are very attentive but not in an obtrusive way. Excellent good served in a variety of charming rooms as well as al fresco on the beautifully appointed patio. After a delicious meal it’s lovely to walk around the extensive, old & beautifully maintained gardens.

Gentleman on reception when I arrived at midnight, polite helpful and full of joy – absolute pleasure after 15 hours of travel ;). Upgraded at no extra cost, absolute bonus, and the room was immaculate. Food as always was spectacular and the staff throughout are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended and returning soon 😉
