Badly run, badly furnished, over priced, an overall bad experience The rating on the website is totally overstated and I suggest it is reviewed as well as the hotel association star rating. We were looking forward to a luxurious stay but couldn't wait to leave

Please, can you keep a secret ;) Last week we (2 adults, 3 children) came home after a holiday in South Africa. We staid 7 days at this hotel in Capetown. An oasis in a modern city. First of all, the location, overlooking Table Mountain, a large pool and great food. The management (run by Thomas and his family) was... More

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.

I was fortunate enough to stay in this gracious colonial hotel for two nights during a business trip to Cape Town. 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
