Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town – Where to stay


Cape Town is a sensational city with lots to see and do, and is a must for any South Africa adventure. Beautiful scenery, world class restaurants, lively nightlife, fantastic local wines, and the Table Mountain to explore you cannot go wrong with 3 or 4 nights here. 

Cape Town – Best Places To Stay In Cape Town



12 Apostles

Located south of the main drag of Camps Bay the 12 Apostels is a great hotel and is certainly a 5 star property but its the location on the main road and the fact that the hotel is neither in Camps bay or in the city centre make this hotel an odd choice. Overall a good option, but not one of the very best.

Babylonstoren

A refreshing, inspiring and wonderfully different take on the winelands. This is a place to visit, and a place to travel back to in its own right. The new wine tasting rooms, with bakery, cheeses and meats promises to make Babylonstoren a must on all driving tours of this region.


Cape Cadogan

This small and charming luxury hotel in the heart of ‘Capetonians’ Cape Town, Gardens, the area has a great local and relaxed atmosphere and provides a perfect base from which to explore many of Cape Town’s sights.


Cape Grace

The Cape Grace takes pride of place in Cape Town's Water Front; this hotel has the location of all locations! 5 star luxury,  beautiful views over the harbour and Table Mountain make the Grace one of the finest hotels in South Africa

Ellerman House

Very different from the likes of the Cape Grace and Mount Nelson, Ellerman House is a small, discreet, very luxurious boutique hotel which invites guests who are looking for a quiet and more private Cape Town stay.  Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from above Bantry Bay, the setting is spectacular, with just a short drive to the Waterfront and a short walk to the beaches of Clifton or Camps Bay.


Last Word Constantia

 
Tucked right back into the flowering suburbs, The Last Word Constantia is a villa-style hotel with fabulous flowering gardens. Its scent alone is therapy, but here you can also swim, take tea beneath the huge, leafy trees, or wander back for a cracking supper. The rooms are vast, great big comfortable beds and baths to return to after your days exploring Cape Town. This charming hotel has all the treats of a big hotel in a more intimate and secluded setting.


Last Word Kommetjie

Anyone wishing to explore the more natural joys of Cape Town will welcome the tranquillity of The Last Word, Long Beach at Kommetjie. It is far from the centre of town and menus are simple, but the National Parks and beaches of the peninsula are close at hand, and there is a lot to explore here.


Mount Nelson

The Mount Nelson is another of Cape Town’s most famous 5 star properties. Located in a vibrant part of the city with good access to the cities main attractions, the Mount Nelson is the colonial option for travellers wanted to step back in time and soak up the history

One and Only

Located in the heart of Cape Town’s fabulous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront the new One & Only is a contemporary hotel with one of the best locations in the main tourist hotspots of the city. However it is a large corporate hotel and personally we prefer the the Cape Grace

The Bay Hotel

The Bay Hotel is a luxury hotel set in the heart of Camps Bay. Although the setting and the facilities are impressive, the atmosphere is not. The beach club ensures that a young, pretentious Cape Town crowd are permanently in residence. 


The Taj Cape Town

The Taj is in the Gardens area of down town Cape Town, away from the popular and vibrant Water front area.  Overall the Taj is a good choice for a city centre accommodation though it is also worth looking at the longer established and more historical Mount Nelson Hotel. It depends what you are after though, as it is in a great location and offers a perfectly comfortable stay.
