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. Our room was a Stunning Suite and was fine, although it must have been designed by a man because although they provided a good hairdryer, there was nowhere that I could plug it in that had a mirror that...

Very luxurious spacious and light double room. You do need a car. Breakfast 9.5 out of 10. Very comfortable and quiet pool area. Staff friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend. It is on the expensive side but well worth it.
