Stayed several times here, great decor in the rooms, service is outstanding and the restaurants are amazing! Great food! The cafe is great for Sunday brunch, but gets very crowded during summer months

Ambiance : a beautifully renovated Cape Dutch homestead nestled in antique trees and elegant gardens. Dark woods and plush furniture throughout. Food : I have eaten here twice in the last week; firstly for lunch on my own, and secondly for breakfast with friends. The food is always good and there is an excellent selection.

Spent a lovely warm Sunday afternoon under the trees - good wine & good food. I had some overseas guests from New Zealand & the UK and there comment was 'South African food is the best'. Good service with many smiling staff and a light lunch which was delicious. Thoroughly recommended.

The 5 rooms restaurant is fantastic! The service is outstanding. The food is not only beautifully presented, but tastes ever bit as exquisite as it looks. The restaurant has an extensive wine selection and the live music in the lounge added to the wonderful atmosphere. The Rose Bar is a must!

I attended a three day workshop in October 2014. The hotel staff were excellent - very well trained, courteous, and very accommodating. The rooms were spacious with break away rooms situated all around. The food was of good quality, there was sufficient parking space, and the atmosphere was excellent for a workshop. We changed from a sit down lunch to... More

We loved the rooms at Alphen - modern meets Victorian. The staff was helpful, and we appreciated the extra touches - complimentary beverages, in-room espresso machine, and turn down service. The only downside was our meal in the restaurant, which left a little to be desired.

I can highly recommend this hotel as it met all of our expectations, definitely good value for money, breakfast was good, rooms very inviting and at times parking could be a bit of a problem but that is included in the price.
