The whole estate is so well kept and up-market, it was a pleasure to be there. Parking in the grounds was good and we were led to the table in the Conservatory, all glass surrounded by lush plants outside and a huge old tree between the two parts of the restaurant - the restaurant is split in two so as...

I stayed here for 2 nights with a group and the stay was fantastic. The grounds are beautiful with vineyards and excellent gardens everywhere. There are mountains all around you so it is insane to think this is a 20 minute drive from the waterfront. This place is ideal for those in Cape Town who want to get away to... More

I absolutely loved staying at The Cellars-Hohenhort over the weekend. The staff are attentive and personable while the food is out of this world. I loved dinner at The Greenhouse and would recommend the full tasting menu with wine pairing as a treat on a special occasion.

We went for tea and delicious scones with fresh cream at the resturant! We sat outside overlooking the most beautiful garden with camphor trees. The service is excellent with very friendly staff. Afterwards we explored the fairy tale garden. Worth a look!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Cellars-Hohenort. As they are a member of the Relais & Chateaux group of luxury hotels, my expectations were high, but this wonderful property did not disappoint.

Our second stay at this superb establishment was shorter than our first because we could only get a booking for one night. The Cellars is a true sanctuary. If you can get in, go. It is a soul restorer.

We stayed for five nights here at the end of our our honeymoon trip to Africa. The beauty of the house and the wonderful gardens were such a wonderful first impression when we arrived.

We enjoyed a delicious lunch with friends recently at the Conservatory and on another occasion had coffee in the lounge. The food was excellent and I would especially like to compliment the staff on how friendly and gracious the service was. It would be difficult not to have a memorable experience with the beautiful views,gardens and elegant decor.
