The splendour of the Castle can only be fully explained following a glass with its wonderful proprietors. Madam Nicole Reigns here with capital R whereas Master Michael pulls the proverbial strings such that the magic is complete. Outstanding service, beautifully decorated suites combined with an atmosphere of sheer elegance in all and every detail. The eggs are boiled just right.... More

Mustard-coloured Colona Castle, high on the hill overlooking Muizenberg, was the final of three hotels we stayed at around Cape Town on our 8-day holiday there. It was just us and one other couple staying here and it was like being invited to stay at your rich uncle's luxury getaway, it being a 1920s era fantasy of high ceilings and... More

We spent 3 nights at Colona Castle in February, as a weekend getaway from our home in Zambia. We had a lovely time. The house dates to the early 1900's, which gives it a sense of history. The rooms are well appointed with great bathrooms. We had the New Suite, which was nice and private as it was below the... More

The accommodation, the proprietors, the staff, the service, the views...just wonderful. And we had to manage without a car due to a lost drivers license, so it can be done. Very close to the train station.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Colona Castle. We had traveled a few days around the area so were ready to relax and stay put. The Castle is in a location that is a bit hard to get to / from unless you have a car or get a cab (they will call one for you), but the rooms are... More

From the moment we arrived (in fact before we arrived) nothing was too much trouble for the Owners and Staff at Colona castle! From arranging car hire to organising safari trips right through to evening meal reservations at local restaurants! When we arrived at the castle we were swept away by the stunning room's and facilities! The photos don't do... More
