Exuding a welcoming vibe, this elegant hotel offers a great mix of the old and the new.
Bohemian chic is the hallmark of this beautiful national monument hotel. The interiors are gorgeous and complement the classic Victorian-style façade perfectly – think plush fabrics and soft, grey tones. There's a subtle boutique vibe and its location on Kloof Street means you're moments away from plenty of local restaurants and bars.
There’s a beautiful breakfast room and if you're feeling peckish in the afternoon, there's tea, lemonade and homemade treats in the library to help yourself to. The comfortable lounge is the ideal spot to relax with a good book in front of the fireplace. At the evening social, you can chat to fellow guests over complimentary canapés and some sherry or port. And if you're not sure where to head for dinner, the friendly staff will happily recommend and book you a table at one of the great restaurants nearby. You’ll also find a small pool, great for cooling down after some time spent on the terrace.
Because of the hotel's national monument status, the 15 rooms all have slightly varying layouts, a feature that adds to the property's alluring charm. Each room is light and airy with a range of amenities including a mini fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. For extra space, opt for a Luxury Room which features a private courtyard and a terrace or balcony.
Just off vibrant Kloof Street in the centre of Cape Town
