What a comfortable hotel the Alphen is. Superb beds, wonderful pillows, down duvets and eqyptian cotton linen. Our bedroom had his and hers bathrooms. Over the top? Yes.

La Belle is a deli/ coffee shop/restaurant at The Alphen Boutique Hotel in Constantia, Cape Town. An excellent breakfast was enjoyed indoors on a public holiday in June. The restaurant was fully booked inside as it was a cool winter day but patrons also sat outside on the verandah. The breakfast menu was comprehensive and well-priced. The four of us... More

With a beautiful garden decorated with the' scales' of yesteryear used by the wine merchants in Constantias history and the original huge cellar doors of the wine vat storage - I knew I was back in the heart of the Alphen with its typical Dutch touch of elegance.
