“Private, quiet and does exactly what it says on the tin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The Andros is private and quiet and a haven of peace and tranquility in Claremont. I travel to Cape Town regularly and have stayed in the Andros on the last four occasions and it has always been good. Discreet personalized service without staff being either too pushy or too lax. I would also say that room rates are good value compared to other high end Claremont hotels and food and drink is very good value normally and particularly at the moment if you are converting from Euros.

Room Tip: Rooms by the pool are bigger and you can step right out to a small but private pool for a swim in th...

The Andros is a beautiful and peaceful boutique hotel situated in Claremont, a suburb in Cape Town. The Cape Dutch architecture and beautiful garden contribute to the romantic atmosphere of the hotel. The hotel is within walking distance from the shopping centre Cavendish Square - if you love shopping this is the place to go!!
Last year in August my husband and I stayed in the excellent Rosenhof, a 5* boutique hotel in Oudtshoorn and decided to try their sister hotel (The Andros) in Cape Town.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room#6 which is situated in the garden (We do not like big hotels with long passages)

Beautiful hotel, small and intimate, with lovely gardens, excellent and caring staff who are friendly and efficient and for whom no request is too much effort. A wonderful stay in superb rooms, with thoughtful chefs who cater for special dietary needs with care and attention. Excellent pampering in the spa!

Staying in a hotel which feels like home, where the staff anticipate one's needs, smiles and courtesy abound, tranquility and peace surround you in the middle of Claremont and Cavendish Centre is a few steps away; this is perfection. The complimentary goodies added to the home-from-home feeling too.
Well done to the team at Andros, our Valentine weekend stay was unforgettable.

"My fiance and I stayed at the Andros for a weekend getaway treat and it was absolutely wonderful. This boutique hotel is small and intimate, with large spacious rooms and a fantastic garden with pool. You feel as if you are staying in a fabulously wealthy persons colonial mansion! The staff are friendly and attentive and we were very well looked after. Enjoyed delicious breakfasts, and poolside meals. Tucked in the leafy suburbs of Newlands, this hotel is a great alternative place to stay in Cape Town which is out of the city centre, but still close enough to everything to be convenient. Highly recommended."

Visiting The Andros was a most pleasant experience. The staff are very friendly and competent and one immediately feels welcome. They know what hospitality means. Service with a smile, quality food, caring about you as their guest.Their facilities are excellent, a home away from home feeling. Very professional and pays attention to detail. They have many nooks and crannies where guests can while away their time, interesting coffee table books, complimentary welcome drink and delicious fresh treats for guests in all the public areas. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and well appointed, beautiful and tranquil gardens with swimming pool.

Whether you stay overnight, visit for a day conference or just for a meal or cup of coffee, The Andros is a perfect option.

A lovely hotel, unparalleled kindness from staff members, a little oasis turned inwards. Fabulous spa treatments. Stunning setting and beautifully presented meals. I cannot recommend the hospitality shown by the Andros more highly.

Room Tip: They're all fabulous
