Cape Town

Overview

Cape Town’s unique setting, between two oceans with its breathtaking backdrop of Table Mountain, is incomparable and it is without doubt one of the world’s most beautiful and vibrant cities. We offer hotels in each of the city’s four distinct areas – the city centre, the Atlantic Seaboard, the Victoria & Alfred waterfront and the Central Peninsula. We would be very happy to discuss with you the relative merits of each and recommend staying in more than one hotel; a stay on the Waterfront followed by a few days in a manor house in Constantia, for example, would make an excellent combination.

Victoria & Albert Waterfront

The historic docklands, which have been revitalised over the last 20 years, are now very popular with visitors who come to experience Cape Town’s vibrant atmosphere and excellent shopping. The setting is wonderful with views up to Table Mountain or out to Robben Island; in addition there are two world class attractions, the Maritime Museum and the Two Oceans Aquarium.

Cape Town City Centre

In the shadow of Table Mountain sits Cape Town’s historical centre. Stately 18th and 19th century architecture contrasts with striking modern structures, all linked by grand boulevards. Leave the main streets and you will find atmospheric squares filled with art galleries and tempting boutiques, or experience one of the numerous food and craft markets.

Central Peninsula

This affluent part of Cape Town is a more peaceful parkland alternative to the vibrant atmosphere of the centre, yet is only 15 minutes by taxi from the heart of the city. There are excellent sporting venues and elegant designer shops offering outstanding value in Newlands and Rosebank, with wine-tasting and alfresco dining in the enchanting Constantia hills. It is here that you will find the remarkable Kirstenbosch Gardens.

Altantic Seaboard

This dramatic coastline stretches from the elegant suburbs of Sea Point and Bantry Bay to the wilds of Cape Point. The coastal road passes through colourful towns, each offering superb seafood and white, sandy beaches. The rock formations of the Twelve Apostles dominate the landscape and the drive south past Chapman’s Peak and the Cape Peninsula National Park is truly breathtaking.
