LA BELLE ALPHEN The setting of the historic Alphen Hotel is superb! The beautiful Constantia Berg forms a majestic backdrop and the manicured lawns and indigenous flora complete an unforgettable canvas. The star of the show is the beautifully proportioned main house which is Dutch colonial grandeur at its elegant best. (It even comes complete with the tale of a... More

Rooms are nicely decorated and are not just typical 5 star hotel plain/flavorless rooms. Breakfast was excellent as well as the dinner in the "5 Rooms" restaurant (live Jazz band was definitely a nice plus!). The pool area and the Rose Bar are nice to lounge on afternoons with a bottle of Cap Classique. There was nice walking/running trail just... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a lovely part of the Cape. The rooms are stunning and the hotel cleaning staff are good. Breakfast and dinner service is incredibly slow, so if you're in a rush, don't eat there. It takes about half an hour to get a menu and a further hour to get food. The pool bar closes... More

We had a family gathering at the Alphen Hotel. It was my mother's birthday and we wanted to treat her without my mom having to do anything. We booked a table for 10 and ordered a birthday cake, and all I can say is wow. It was a very busy Sunday but all seemed very calm, fantastic freshly squeezed juices... More

The Hotel is stunningly beautiful, the rooms spacious, elegant, with everything you could wish for. And after a peaceful night you go for breakfast which is served under those wonderful giant oak trees ... And then the pattern changes completely and we wondered who manages the kitchen - whatever you ordered, if it takes long (meaning about 30 min. or... More

Room was fantastic as was the breakfast. Best nights sleep in ages. Check-in was friendly and efficient and we couldn't fault the hotel. However ... we are compelled to note that the staff at the Rose bar left us sitting for 30 minutes and did not take our order resulting in two very thirsty customers walking out. The breakfast although... More
