our kids of the cape trail run retreat

The first of its kind, this retreat will take running enthusiasts on some of the most beautiful runs in and around the area. Stay over at the Vineyard for the weekend – tackle two trail runs (long and short distances available) and then come back and relax. Plus a portion of the package will go to support the Kids of the Cape.  A one-night package is also available. Click here for more information.

about our history and people

The Vineyard Story spans more than two centuries. Our legendary founder, Lady Anne, built a country cottage here in 1799, and since then, as urban residence and 120 year-old hotel, it has welcomed statesmen, artists, celebrities, Nobel laureates and countless global visitors to this historic spot, served today by our 300-strong, multi-cultural, Vineyard family.

The Vineyard is an award-winning leader in ‘Responsible Hoteling’ and a certified member of Fair Trade Tourism. The GRI Sustainability Report 2014/15 has been compiled to provide all stakeholders with information regarding the hotel’s performance in terms of social, economic and environmental sustainability. The report has been compiled with the assistance of GSA Campbell Consulting. For further information please contact our group sustainability manager and horticulturist, Chris van Zyl on chris@vineyard.co.za or + 27 (0) 21 657 4500.

about our kids of the cape

Taking care of people is what we do. This extends to less advantaged Cape communities, where our Kids of the Cape Fund  assists some 15 upliftment projects that provide child/youth refuge and care, education, skills-training, feeding and care of the disabled. Run by elected Hotel volunteers, the Fund also receives vital contributions from our guests.
