My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Alphen. The food was great, the staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were comfortable and well-equipped. Cellphone signal is not great though (and the wifi is fairly slow), so factor that in to your plans. With that minor caveat though, I would highly recommend it.

Professional staff, excellent service and for me the most important aspect of this hotel is the cleanness, the rooms are spotless. Free wifi and ample working space in rooms makes it perfect for business, however, the room setting and decor is perfect for a romantic outing.

A lovely boutique hotel with large, classic and clean rooms and wonderful staff members who go beyond and above duty to exceed guests expectations. Thank you for making our stay so memorable. Excellent amenities in room. King size bed with large television. Immaculately presented.

Excellent hotel for the price. Rooms are very nice (though decor can be a little heavy at times, in slight contrast with old colonial feel of the building). Service is service and breakfast is fantastic. Been back twice and quality was consistent.

I recently stayed at The Alphen Hotel for the fourth time. As always, the service was superb, the food delicious and the décor as opulent as I had remembered, with a delightful modern touch. The beds are superbly comfortable and the cocktails are out of this world. In fact, the hotel was so delightful that I am booking in again... More

Every time we visit my sister-in-law in Constantia we always stay at the Alphen. It has changed over the years and has been refurbished into a much hipper rendition of its former self. But the colonial atmosphere and Cape Dutch atmosphere still remain. The rooms are amazing and huge, with his and her bathrooms, marble floors, plenty of towels, and... More

The room was lovely. The staff were professional. The hotel felt more like a business hotel. 5 Rooms Restaurant experience was poor. Difficulty getting a table at breakfast as Alphen is popular business meeting place.You can hear the nearby Motorway when sitting outside. Felt more like work than pleasure. Probably very good for business.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay here and there were some good things and some not so good.
