When you arrive at this magical place it feels like a very soft and fluffy alpaca blanket is offered to you . Ryno and Melissa and their entire staff are the most attentive we have ever experienced, sincere and most welcoming. All rooms are fabulous and taken care of with attention for every small detail. We will never forget the... More

Tintswalo is the prime location for beautiful sun sets and views across the bay and over the mountains! Each room is uniquely decorated to add to the romance of the holiday. All rooms are right on the waters edge yet very private. The food is fantastic, from the breakfast, lunch, canapés and 5 course dinner plus any snacks you want... More

Obviously aimed at tourists with Sterling , USD. Completely overpriced for South Africans. The fixed menu is limited and not exceptional. My children took us there for a special occasion, we have been before. I was embarrassed and shocked when they were presented with the bill. Great location which has lost some of its charm due to fire and loss... More

We stayed at Tintswalo for a friends' wedding for a long weekend. We had heard that the hotel had been closed and refurbed due to the Cape Town/Chapman's Peak fires in 2014 and were slightly apprehensive about how quickly the place had been done up and re-opened. We need not have worried, in the slightest! Everything from the welcome by... More

Ordinarily a review is clinical and full of objective observation but this is not that kind of review. This place has become part of a lifelong memory and here’s why… On Saturday the 16th of January 2016 I boarded a plane for Cape Town International under the impression that my boyfriend and I were going to negotiate a business deal...

5 star Home from home. Great place to relax without having to travel to enjoy the scenery. Elegance of lounge and dining room impresses. Staff and food made this truly an expierence we would like to repeat.

We recently stayed at Tinswalo and then returned shortly after to celebrate our daughters birthday. Both visits were incredible. The rooms are stunning with the furnishings so beautifully considered and of the utmost comfort. When we returned, not only did the staff remember us and organise a cake, but they had also arranged a small gift for me which I... More

My husband and I flew into Cape Town picked up a hire car and headed excitedly to the TINTSWALO Atlantic Hotel which took about forty minutes. We headed up Chapmans Peak and caught our first glimpse of the hotel way below. Charming Moses the gateman checked our credentials and let us in. You have to park at the entrance and... More

I booked this lodge in January only to be told in February that the devastating fire on Chapmans Peak had raised it to the ground and was asked by my travel agent whether I wanted to change to another hotel, trust me what a great decision to stick with it and watch it be rebuilt to its original glory On...

I stayed with my family over New Year in two adjacent suites which were both brand new and perfect. Tintswalo is 45 minutes south of urban Cape Town but , located at the foot of Chapmans Peak , staying here delivers a wonderful feeling of remoteness and connection to the ocean and nature. Combine this with 6 star service and... More
