We stayed at the Highlands for 4 nights in November 2014 and loved every minute. The hotel is beautiful, our room (pool room) was spacious and bright. The grounds are manicured and very pretty. The hotel is well located for exploring Cape Town and the surrounding area yet delivers a very peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The staff were very attentive... More

This hotel has simply appointed rooms, very comfy beds and a relaxed atmosphere. the Front of house management and staff are there for you all the time, without being in your face. Breakfasts are the best meal of the day, so go out for lunch and dinner, you will need a car to get around. As for the décor of... More

I have stayed regularly at this hotel for over 10 years on business trips to Cape Town. I have always been met with a warm welcome and the Hotel is very comfortable and the rooms spacious. It is worth dining-in at least once as the current chef is excellent and the wine list good.

We were received in a friendly and professional way. All staff we encountered during our stay were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and comfortable with all needed to make the stay enjoyable. We really enjoyed our wake-up coffee every morning. Gowns were good quality not the usual toweling material.

Highlands house is wonderful. The staff were charming and helpful and walked the extra mile to oblige. Even Duke "the ginger tom"cat was friendly and spent time with us. The home is tastefully decorated and a great pleasure stay there. Well recommended.

I stayed at the beautiful Highlands for four days recently and couldn't have been happier with my visit. My attic room was very comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was large and everything worked really well. I had a view out to Table Mountain. The staff were unfailingly helpful, discreet and attentive. The food was excellent. During my stay I had... More

What a surprise! My family stayed there a few days ago when we were in Cape Town recently. The rooms are exquisitely appointed, the staff and owner warm, friendly and welcoming. Its the kind of place you could go and curl up with a book in one of the lounges or have a drink in the beautiful bar. So much... More

To top it all, they mailed items that I had left behind to me. The rooms were spacious and comfortable the staff were superb and... More
