Tucked away from the bustling harbour, this chic boutique hotel combines classic elegance with contemporary style and luxury.

Part of the renowned Newmark Hotels’ portfolio, this intimate boutique hotel is a favourite with couples looking for some luxurious tranquillity close to Cape Town's attractions. Found on a quiet street set back from waterfront, it's just a few minutes' walk between this peaceful retreat and the vibrant V&A Waterfront's shops and restaurants.

There's a stately, modern theme throughout that's perfect for travellers who want somewhere peaceful to return to at the end of a busy day. Guests pass through the beautiful three-floored atrium on their way to and from exploring the city, and for more leisurely days you also have access to the pool at neighbouring Dock House Boutique Hotel and the shared Sanctuary Spa where there's an impressive range of treatments. Breakfast is served buffet-style with à la carte options at Dash Restaurant & Bar, where you can enjoy a set menu for lunch and dinner to views of the harbour and Table Mountain. Guests are welcome to dine at the waterfront Ginja Restaurant, located at the neighbouring Victoria & Alfred Hotel.

Each of the rooms and suites are beautifully furnished with chandeliers, elegant crown moulding and a modern palette of white, grey and purple. Deluxe Rooms overlook the courtyard and Premium Rooms all have a balcony with views of the harbour and/or Table Mountain.
