Having lived most of my life in Cape Town, l would often go for tea and sconces at this hotel which is nestled near table mountain, but very central location to the City Centre and Waterfront and the shopping centre Cavendish, which is a lovely up market mall. The whole area of Claremont and Newlands is lovely. I now live in London and had the opportunity of staying at the hotel and experiencing it from a tourist point of view. The best selling feature of this hotel is its gorgeous gardens, with beautiful vistas of Table Mountain, and especially in summer the established trees provide much needed shade for afternoon tea. The scones are especially delicious as well as the vast breakfast buffet provided in the morning. There is a wonderful big pool long enough to do laps, a well established gym and a beautiful spa. The staff were gracious and friendly and the rooms have been remoulded whilst more modern they do not have the cold feeling of some contemporary hotels. Good mattress and linen, and the bathroom had a separate shower and bath. The one aspect that is very important to me is how quiet the rooms were, as they set apart from the main activity of the hotel. Ground floor mountain facing having their own terraces with sun chairs. There are several restaurants with wonderfully different decor and they have managed to bring the old 'dutch' charm into the 21st century without losing the integrity of the history. The tortoise who has been there many years adds a wonderful touch and children delight in being able to go up close. There is adequate parking and with Cavendish 5 mins away, shopping and movies are easily assessable. Getting to the highway to get into central Cape Town or to take walks up the mountain is very easy. I can highly recommend this hotel and hope to be back there in December.
