Centrally located to explore all that Cape Town has to offer, the hotel is nestled off the beaten track in a dense thicket of trees which envelopes the visitor in quiet tranquility. The charming collection of tasteful items (including the old doctors bag as a door stopper) makes one feel at home in the plush surroundings, like visiting with granny.... More

Totally unsatisfactory stay at what claims to a 5* boutique hotel. I would not return to this hotel or recommend it. I stayed at the Greenways Hotel from 11 - 13 March 2014. There were a number of incidents which contributed to my unhappiness, namely: 1. In the evening I returned to the hotel just before 23h00. I was left... More

I have been fortunate enough to experience Greenways Hotel twice, once for a day conference and once for an evening event. The sheer beauty of the garden, the ambience of the old-world hotel aura is enhanced by service perfection and complete attention to detail.

I was invited to a business lunch of the SA - German chamber and was again very pleased with the stunning setting as well as the friendly staff. Close to all yet removed and serene. I would love to come for one of their boogaloo evenings with cape talk 567, they're supposed to be good fun.

Besides the beautiful gardens and stylish building, the most impressive was the friendly staff. The welcome by the the owners were friendly and sincere, reception staff efficient and always smiling, and nothing was asked too much from the waiters... More

Gaynore and I had a fabulous stay at Greenways. The service and courteous manner of the staff made our stay most amazing. We have used Greenways for other events before and we knew the level of service is very high but staying there took us to a completely different level. We felt nothing short of royalty. Greenways is warm, luxurious... More

Susanne and Thomas do welcome her guests with a great pleasure and care about everything and everybody. Just wonderful and friendly. Go there if you wanna have a stunning English garden with wonderful trees ! :) Everything is very clean and well prepared for a good stay. They serve over 20 handmade jams at breakfast buffet. Cool! Perfect beds.....

My wife and I recently went on a family visit with our 2 children to Cape Town. We found Greenways to be full of old world charm. If you are looking for a modern hotel with every screw in the right place and 24 hour room service, then go elsewhere. But if you are looking for calm and tranquility in... More
