Seven separate historic wings make up the 198 roomed property sprawling over eight acres of flowering gardens, ancient trees and rolling lawns, offering magnificent views of Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Devil’s Peak.
The hotel offers two large heated swimming pools, two floodlit tennis courts and a resident tennis coach, a children’s play centre with professional childminders and a glorious spa along with personal trainers and yoga classes.
Guided by the renowned Executive Chef George Jardine, the hotel presents a delightful array of dining experiences. The Verandah Menu, curated by Chef Jardine and refreshed every two weeks to reflect the seasons, stands as a must-try for dinner. For an intimate dining affair, the Chef’s Table invites you into the heart of the kitchen to witness its culinary magic.
