I found the service really let down the Alphen. The staff seemed disinterested in their jobs and consequently gave bad and sloppy service, which was also very slow and uninformed. Their uniforms were also scruffy and they were all wearing their own jeans and takkies. The place itself is also in need of some TLC and attention to detail. The... More

Checked in on a winter special to celebrate a special occasion. The hotel is a magnificent blend of history, beautiful gardens, with a little bit of retro flair thrown in just to keep things interesting. The prints in the rooms are exquisite, where one's initial reaction could be that the décor could be perceived as a bit over the top.... More

stayed here for a few nights. Great decor, comfy rooms. Loved the Cape Dutch building, nice and central between the vineyards and the great restaurants, bars and a bakery all on the same venue. Our favourite hotel in Cape town. City is only 15min away

We fully enjoyed our stay at the Alphen Hotel in Constantia. The Hotel and the garden is beautiful and it was nice to spend some time there. What we liked most was the unbelievable friendly staff. We felt more than welcome from the first Minute to the last!

If you want a truly luxurious break in a beautiful location, this is a perfect choice. Firstly, the staff are absolutely amongst the best we've experienced worldwide.

Excellent experience from check-in to check-out. Will definately return. La Belle is a great for (late) breakfast and the Five Rooms Restaurant is a must! Our room was fantastic with his and hers bathrooms and a lovely comfy bed.

The Alphen Boutique Hotel exudes luxury and style. Staff happily go the extra mile to meet any need the guest may have. The food is utterly delicious, but when my 4-year old (who does not yet have epicurean tastes) asked for plain fettuccine with ketchup, the chef was willing to oblige. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the size and... More

We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Great rooms, staff, food, location etc. To have two bathrooms per room was great luxury! We had dinner 3 times in La Belle's so my husband didnot have to drive anymore. Even 3 night in a row we still enjoyed the food.

The Alphen is based in Constantia suburbs of Cape Town. Not on the beach, but this place is a little bit of heaven away from the busy Atlantic Seaboard. The service is outstanding and the rooms are fantastic. It has the added benefit of having the restaurant 5 rooms attached which services excellent food in one of, funny enough, 5... More
