Selecting a boutique hotel is not without it's pitfalls, but the payoff for taking the risk, is finding a place like the Nova Constantia. We stayed here in Sept 2009 and were looking for a quiet base from which to explore the Cape area.
From the moment we were welcomed with the friendliest check-in we have ever experienced, to the not-a-problem, late checkout, we could not have been better looked after. The hotel is set in landscaped gardens with pool and tennis court and is finished beautifully throughout. Our room was fantastic with luxury bath, wet room shower and jacuzzi on the balcony.
Breakfast was as you wanted it, when you wanted it. Help with bookings was made efficiently and intelligently and all advice was given honestly and freely. The service was exactly what we were after, not in your face, yet always available.
Constantia is a beautifully quiet suburb and was a perfect base to access both Cape town and the areas east and south. The hotel is very close to a number of good restaurants, among them one of SA's best, the lovely (and surprisingly inexpensive) La Colombe.
We would not look to stay at any other hotel if we ever get the chance to visit again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At Nova Constantia we pride ourselves on not just offering a fine boutique hotel in the heart of the historical Constantia Valley but rather a private residence that exceeds the expectations of even the most seasoned traveller. The hotel is situated in a quiet yet accessible leafy suburb of Cape Town, known as the Constantia Valley, which evolved from the very first wine-producing farms established in the Cape, as early as 1685. This idyllic location provides the perfect setting to relax and rejuvenate with peace and privacy as the ideal. Nova Constantia is a generously well designed space of architectural grandeur. Its African Chic contemporary style reflects the best of what South Africa has to offer. The large private manicured gardens allow you to benefit from the alfresco lifestyle of the Cape and the design theme expands outdoors into several secluded tranquillity areas allowing guests to relax in privacy cocooned in sheer luxury. ... more less
