This boutique hotel specializes in service. It is elegant without being stuffy and well located in a lush suburb close to town and the winelands. Excellent value. There is a great walking trail abutting the property as well.

Our tour company (which we have used both times to South Africa to handle all the transfers, flights and reservations, from the choices we give them, to make our "safari trips" go smoothly) recommended this historic hotel.

Amazing heartfelt service; beautiful and very spacious rooms with two bathrooms; stunning garden and pool and, best of all, the food. Best dinner on Cape Town. Our waiter Karl was very knowledgeable and took time to guide us through them menu and pair fantastic wines. Could not say more positives, Alphen is a wonderful oasis of paradise.

Beautiful rooms, great food and all of the staff had "can do" positive attitudes! Meeting space was lovely and conference services staff were super attentive. Only improvement would be if they had a spa:) I will be back!

From arrival to departing this amazing place, it made my stay in town from America feel like I was right at home.
