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.

From the security guard, to the porter, to reception, housekeeping, managers, restaurant staff to management everyone behaves like a caring owner. Simple things like a bar fridge with free... More

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.

The historic Alphen Hotel has been spoilt by an outbreak of design bad taste - the interiors are ghastly!! The friendly, helpful staff saved the day, nothing was too much trouble and the stunning Constantia Valley location, gardens and historic architecture remain as beautiful as ever.

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.
