We stayed at The Alphen for one night as part of their Winter special, good value for money. We had the choice of any of their spacious rooms, finishes are beautiful. Highlights were the Charlotte Rhys scented candle and toiletries, personal touches such as macaroons on turn-down with anniversary note, ordering breakfast in our room from on-site La Belle, lazing around the pool with afternoon cocktails from on-site Rose Bar, great dinner and cocktails at on-site 5 Rooms restaurant.The staff were appropriately friendly and pleasant.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay at The Alphen Boutique Hotel.

The Constantia Winelands is one of the most beautiful parts of Cape Town, especially in Winter so we are thrilled that you took us up on our winter special. Should you visit us again in the near future, perhaps on your next anniversary, please try our Bathroom Butler Menu as this is a unique and romantic experience.

Warmest regards,
The Alphen Team

Thank you so much for your comments.

At The Alphen Boutique Hotel we pride ourself in offering 5 star luxury in a relaxed atmosphere. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the 5 Rooms Restaurant as well as our la Belle Bistro & Bakery. It is a pity you were unable to experience The Rose Bar as it will only be launched for summer on the 4th October. Something to look forward to, upon your return.

Warmest regards,
The Alphen Team

From the moment we arrived on the Thursday til we left on Sunday we were so well looked after!

Apart from both exceptional restaurants on site, la belle bakery/bistro where we had cake endless patisserie selection and the most delicious brrakfasts and 5rooms restaurant for AMAZING local game beside the fire, the bathroom butler and in room pampers we ordered were so decadent and beautifully done - we felt spoilt rotten and so well looked after!

The staff were so accommodating and the surrounds so beautiful we couldn't have asked for a more fun , delicious and relaxing weekend, with so many choices on our doorstep, we truly didn't want to leave or want for anything!

High recommended, we will definitely be back with our partners to take advantage of this romantic retreat from start to finish!

This place is just great. Its not in the city Center or waterfront, but its just 20 minutes drive from there. Its in Constancian (the other side of Table Moutain) which has a beautiful landscape and surroundings.
The hotel itself is just great and you have everything in there... 3 restaurants, garden, pool, etc. Staff is outstanding as well the room decoration and space. Highly recommendable.

I made a multiple booking for two nights as we had a wedding at Buitenverwachting. The hotel decor is very different and we liked it. In particular the suite for my daughter and her groom. Service was unobtrusive but attentive. We only eat at the bistro area (breakfast and lunch) and I can recommend both the food and the service. We also used the bar area at Five Rooms and it is a really funky and by all accounts very popular venue. The five rooms are exceptionally well decorated and all have a different theme. A definite for a function or just a dinner. Alphen has gone through some seismic changes in the last few years and lots of new people in place during my experience from booking onwards. new GM and front desk manager top drawer.

Room Tip: There is an old block and a new block (it is a historical site). Decor as appropriate. Both are good. Rooms facing parking area and bistro can be noisy.
