At a Glance

This Relais & Châteaux property, in upscale Constantia, a 25-minute drive from the center of Cape Town, is set on a stunning wine estate.


The first thing guests of this hotel notice are the stunning grounds and verdant tranquility of this property that sits, somewhat off the beaten track, in upscale Constantia. The area is home to a large British expat community and several wine estates, just twenty minutes from the city center.

The Cellars, in fact, are part of the 18th-century Klaasenbosch wine estate, and the former Hohenort manor house constitutes the main part of the hotel. The guest rooms have an English-country feel, with huge beds and antique dressers, and many have marvelous views of the Constantia Valley. One of the two restaurants on the property, the Greenhouse, has an excellent reputation for modern South African fare. There is also a spa, tennis court, putting green and three pools. It’s the kind of property with the charm and cosseting that you might find at one of the best inns in Provence or the Cotswolds.

Who Should Stay

Travelers seeking a hotel that’s close enough to Cape Town for easy access but removed enough to feel like a true wine country retreat.
