This was our third visit to The Cellars in January and it did not disappoint. We were sad to hear of the death of Liz McGrath last year and were wondering what effect this would have on 'The Collection'. As far as ‘The Cellars’ is concerned (and The Plettenberg, see other review) we need have had no such concerns. The... More

This small hotel on the slopes of Table Mountain is set within 9 acres of beautifully maintained gardens, and is located minutes from Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, V&A Waterfront, and Constantia Valley Wineries in a quiet upscale neighborhood. The comfortable rooms feature large bathrooms/dressing rooms, comfortable beds, and lavish bed linens that complement the Cape Dutch architecture. The heated pool on... More

A few years ago we went to see the Cellars and were very taken with the appearance and ambiance of this hotel. On our most recent visit I booked for us to be there for four nights. We prefer to be out of town for a number of reasons - not least that we like the tranquility of a hotel... More

We first saw the hotel a few years ago when we went there for dinner and took an instant liking to the place and as a result when we returned to Cape Town this January, we spent 5 lovely nights there. We arrived around 9.00AM after a long flight and were given cups of coffee before being shown to our... More

This was our 10 th return visit over the last 25 years. Everything was as expected with some welcome small improvements in out favourite suite. Food was delicious and the ambience just as we remembered it. Staff were extremely attentive but only when required. Highly recommended.

This is a really great hotel; my wife and I stayed for a week earlier this month; service excellent, wonderful grounds and pools, peaceful, good restaurant. We had a car but rented a cab whenever we went into CT. Very highly recommended by us!

We had a horrible experience at this hotel. My husband is a busy surgeon and this was meant to be a long-awaited, special weekend away from the kids. We booked dinner at the Greenhouse which was also long-awaited. After the service-lady came and turned down our beds, we asked her to close the windows, informing her we would be at... More

Great place to stay whilst visiting Cape Town. The exceptionally helpful and friendly staff and a beautiful garden setting made the stay memorable and this place should be on everyone's bucket list!

We loved this hotel. It has the most fantastic gardens and is a beautifully appointed old hotel. It is not too flash but has all the "mod cons" both swimming pool areas are great and the heated pool was perfect for our baby daughter. The food was really special in the conservatory restaurant and the Greenhouse is spectacular. We could... More
