The Cellars-Hohenort

Cape Town, South Africa

Virgin rating

The hotel

Set in the historical Constantia Valley, this hotel makes for a relaxing countryside escape whilst still being only 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nine acres of leafy gardens surround two historic buildings, why not grab a map and explore, rent a picnic hamper, or have a go at some lawn games to make the most of these luscious surroundings. When you’re ready for a bit of city life, a daily complimentary shuttle is on hand to whizz you to the waterfront for a bit of shopping, or a bite to eat. The food on hand at the hotel is excellent however, with the aptly name Conservatory serving up a feast for breakfast and a range of top quality dishes when the evenings comes around.

Incredible visit to beautiful boutique hotel on gorgeous grounds at the base of Table Mountain. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, fine linens and so comfortable.

Incredible visit to beautiful boutique hotel on gorgeous grounds at the base of Table Mountain. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, fine linens and so comfortable. The food was special at every meal, presented creatively and delicious. The High Tea, walking in the gardens, finding the resident tortoises made this a one of a kind hotel. The Spa, peaceful, quiet and talented employees. But, by far the best part of all was the welcoming staff. Hats off to Helenica, Bridget, Daniel, Annabella, Que, Lisa and Massimo. Wish I could name everyone as they all did their part to make our visit so memorable! Read less

Beautiful decor, lovely open lounge spaces and genuinely helpful staff. The rooms are gorgeous and spacious with lovely comfy beds. There are lots of open areas to relax in and perfect if you are staying with children who go to bed earlier. Gardens are lovely for a walk and the restaurant was great. We took the complimentary shuttle to the Waterfront on one of the days which was really helpful. We paid to get picked up from the airport but again such a pleasure to offer this service. One of us used the spa and had a good experience with an early appointment before breakfast. Very relaxing and somewhere I would definitely go back and stay. Read less

We were booked by our tour company, Go Touch Down, at another hotel (Stillness Manor) which was completely unacceptable!!!! Our group of 8 quickly found The Cellars property and were lucky enough to all get rooms. The staff was so professional and the property is stunning. They saved our entire Cape Town experience! Both the restaurant and the bar have a good selection and the food is really good. I’m not too adventurous so stuck with the filet and was not disappointed! On par with a good American steakhouse. They offer a nice continental breakfast or you can order from the menu. They also have an on-site boutique that was very charming. I would return to Cape Town and stay at this property! Read less
