We stayed here for our first night of our honeymoon. I have to say, this is one of the most beautiful and romantic places we have ever visited in Cape Town. The rooms are beautiful and the service was excellent. Great food and activities as well.

Thanks to Stefan and staff for a memorable wedding last weekend. All the boxes can be ticked five star. Your accommodation is outstanding, wonderful staff and the food delicious.
