• Sophisticated and stylish
  • Enjoy a dip in the refreshing pool in the sweet courtyard
  • Close to the trendy bars and restaurants on Kloof Street

Small but perfectly formed, this is a gem of a hotel. The gorgeous Cape Dutch building has been sensitively converted into a chic and charming boutique hideaway, with 15 fabulously decorated bedrooms. It’s also in a great part of town, with Kloof and Long Streets just around the pretty corner, with their brilliant bars and restaurants and happy vibes.

Antiques and modern pieces combine in the delightful rooms here, creating an eclectic, half traditional-timeless- half cutting-edge-contemporary mood. Each room is a haven in Cape Town’s hustle, but for a balcony or terrace pick one of the Luxury Rooms to sit back and enjoy a cocktail with the distinctive silhouette of Table Mountain providing a perfect backdrop. Breakfast can be served poolside, in a courtyard that shuts out the stresses of the world but lets in sunshine and bird song. The eggs Benedict are especially good. There’s a room-service menu, carefully designed to bring in some local specialities – the Cape Malay chicken curry is a favourite – along with all the usual international classics. A delicious selection of canapés and drinks are served in the lounge every evening. With many of Cape Town’s most popular restaurants and cafés on the doorstep though, stepping out for an evening meal is part of the pleasure of a stay here. Staff are friendly and full of advice about local attractions, and will organise trips and excursions with expertise. This is one of the best boutique hotels in the city, and guests return time and time again.
