What We Love

  • Daily full English breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
  • Two excellent restaurants on the estate, but Sunday lunches at Catherina’s are legendary for the live jazz
  • Taste Steenberg’s award-winning wines – notably the Sauvignon Blanc and Nebbiolo – at the ultra-modern wine tasting center
  • Warm, personal service from young but experienced staff
  • Luxury of space and freedom of movement, whether you want to play a round of golf (reduced rates for hotel guests), walk or cycle through the vineyards, laze at the secluded swimming pool, or indulge in spa treatments at the hotel’s Gingko Spa
  • Only a 20-minute drive to Cape Town
  • Most of the guestrooms are in historic buildings surrounded by gardens and overlooking either the golf course or mountain. It’s quiet and close to nature

What To Know

  • Good for families, couples and honeymooners. Not suitable for single or young travelers due to the lack of evening entertainment and distance from the city
  • The hotel’s location, on an estate 20 minutes from the center of Cape Town, makes this a good base for day trips in and around the Cape Peninsula
  • It’s not on the coast, but many of the Cape Peninsula’s best beaches are a 15-20 minute drive by car. The hotel also has a secluded swimming pool
  • While the restaurants have stylish contemporary interiors, the hotel’s décor is very conservative by comparison. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable but don’t expect the same “wow” factor

Excellent hotel

This really is a quality hotel. Set in a lovely vineyard setting, the rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. The staff are very keen to help. Meals in the two restaurants are very good. It is very difficult to find anything negative to say. I have stayed at several local hotels and this is certainly as good if not better than they are.

Stunning Location and a Wonderful place to stay

From the moment of our champagne greeting in reception to our departure some 36 hours later we were looked after, cared for and generally wonderfully served by very attentive but discreet staff.

Our room was superbly equipped and luxuriously comfortable

Our dinner in the main restaurant was very good though the menu choice was a bit limited and the venue seems a bit "golf clubhouse" like.

Breakfast in the Wine Tasting venue up the hill was a real treat - as was the wine tasting session (free to hotel guests).

Walking the grounds is very pleasant and the pool & treatment suite have been very elegantly put together

Amazing hotel

The hotel is wonderful. The premier room is well worth the money. The staff is very attentive and the hotel offers great amenities. The tasting room and the restaurant attached to the tasting room (Bistro 1682) are delicious.
