Wonderful stay at Alphen Boutique.

Posted Jan 7, 2016
We were utterly spoiled in every way. The food in each Restaurent area was great. I loved the pool, the lush grounds and opulent , colonial style rooms. The staff are marvellous . All very attentive and charming.

beautifully renovated historic property in the hea

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Pros: the food ,accommodation and and service
Cons: The concierge service
Location: close to Groot Constantia the Constatia villiage and delightful running and walking trails
stayed for a week from the 22 march and celebrated my wife's birthday in the 5 Rooms restaurant . Both restaurant and the Amazing suite which accommodated us oozed charm and ambiance. Our daily breakfast in the La Belle bakery was either under the historic oaks outside or when cooler inside in the atmospheric interior . Alphen seems to have got the balance between modernity and modernistic just right . Service was always good but the front desk could have been more knowledgeable about confirming airline tickets and the Cape Town sights. All in al a very rewarding visit .Would definitely return . A car is essential to access the Cape Peninsula.

Lovely, authentic period Cape Dutch property

Posted Feb 21, 2014
Pros: Overall setting is lovely - very relaxed.
Cons: Consistently slow restaurant service (cafe la Belle). Obviously understaffed. Good breakfasts but very poor standard in the evenings.
Overall, a positive experience. The hotel setting is really lovely, the staff are pleasant and the room was great. The major negative was the consistently poor, slow service in the main restaurant (cafe la Belle), which is best avoided in the evenings, particularly.

Kleineres Boutique Hotel etwas am Stadtrand

Posted Sep 28, 2016
Pros: Schön im Grünen
Cons: Viele Details ;-)
Location: Am Rand des Zentrum, eher off side Aktivitäten, zB Botanischer Garten!
Das Hotel liegt nicht direkt im Zentrum, Uber oder Auto auf jeden Fall erforderlich. Die Zimmer sind gut ausgestattet, es mangelt jedoch des öfteren an den Details (zB Lichtschalter ungünstig platziert und unlogisch geschalten, Zimmersafe unten im Schrank und schwer zu bedienen...), deswegen eher ein 4 oder 4,5 Sterne Hotel, insgesamt wird sich aber Mühe gegeben den Level hoch zu halten. Der Preis erscheint trotzdem bzw deswegen ebenfalls etwas überhöht. Das Restaurant am Hotel ist insbesondere von nicht Hotelgästen gut besucht, Parkplätze dennoch vorhanden. Frühstück a la Card, gut! Generell ist das gesamte Personal sehr nett. DsTV (quasi wie Sky in Deutschland) im Zimmer ist schön. Die Stereoanlage wirkt dagegen etwas deplatziert und nimmt optisch viel Raum ein, ebenso ein überdimensionierter Spiegel. Der Kühlschrank für die Minibar (knapp gehalten) ist ok, aber zu laut mit dem Bett im selben Zimmer (also ausschalten, mindestens nachts). Für 3 Personen ist auf jeden Fall die größere Suite empfehlenswert. Insgesamt ok, aber wir würden eher nach einem anderen Hotel das nächste Mal schauen...
