As always we were well looked after by all the staff. We have already sent an email to Jane explaing the improvements that we considered should be given urgent attention. These concerns refer to the fabric of the building which is visibly deteriorating since we first stayed in Highlands in2005. We plan on staying again next year and hope we... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the grounds are beautiful and the accommodation itself was spacious and comfortable. Highly recommended. The location is perfect as it close to shopping malls in Claremont and Constantia and also near the exit to the highway to town and the waterfront.

From the moment I drove in the yard, I received a warm welcome from their staff. Their food very unique and filling. Peaceful place with a lot of history to embrace. There's also a small library if one needs to use one with lots of books to read.

Highlands was the start of a 14-days trip across the Western Cape. Arriving early in the morning, the lovely garden room - spacious and stylish - was ready upon arrival. We relaxed at the garden pool and enjoyed a lovely lunch with excellent food and wine. Quiet and chic surrounding in the southern suburbs and not too far from the... More

A place with character and very well located to explore the Cape Region. Old "British" style, spacious rooms, comfortable lounge and garden, etc. The staff is friendly and helpful. One night we (a group of 9) came back without having made requested advanced dinner arrangement .... expecting to be forced to call a Pizza Service. The available staff was extremely... More

Charming house and interiors, with delightful staff who are fully aware of the varied requirements of their clients. The house needs considerable plaster work and roof repairs, which are to be undertaken soon by the new owners. I do hope the new management does not alter the nature and ambience of this listed property as it would spoil it completely... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Highlands Country House is the perfect venue for your weekend away, well deserved holiday, intimate wedding or even that (second) honeymoon. At Highlands a warm friendly welcome awaits you where good old fashioned excellent service is the order of the day. 14 individually appointed rooms are generously proportioned and all en-suite. Meals are individually prepared by the resident chef and the menu changes daily to suite your wishes. On request we can even host your own private dinner party, complete with place names, flowers and all the trimmings. Built in 1900, the Sir Herbert Baker house is set in the peaceful surroundings of formal gardens which boast 2 pools, a private spa and many secluded areas to relax and enjoy this home from home retreat. Afternoon tea is served at the pool or in the conservatory and of course the scones are homemade. Loose yourself in a book in the library or lounge or catch up on the news from home on the guest PC. Retire to your freshly made room and chill..... before dining in or out (of course we can arrange the transport), enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the bar or on the terrace and feel yourself transported from the everyday to the extra special. Highlands Country House - country tranquility in the heart of Cape Town. ... more   less
