The Cellars-Hohenort

Boutique Hotel, Constantia


Talk about well-positioned: The Cellars-Hohenort sits on Table Mountain’s forested slopes amid Constantia Valley, southern Africa’s oldest wine-growing area, yet only 15 minutes from Cape Town and with pinch-yourself views of False Bay.  Buried in nine acres of gorgeous gardens, the estate merges an 18th-century wine estate with the traditional Hohenort manor house. 


52 roooms boast panoramic views if the iconic mountain and manicured, well established gardens.  Rooms range from double rooms to luxury double roos, suites and the opulent Madiba Villa.


Grabbing headlines is the fine-dining Greenhouse, where Peter Tempelhoff, South Africa’s favourite Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef, conjures up world-renowned fare from South African seasonal ingredients – along with great afternoon teas.  There is also The Conservatory, more informal and superb value, serving traditional recipes, including a selection of The Collection founder Liz McGrath’s favourite dishes.  Both have classy wine lists.  Outside, McGrath’s lovingly-landscaped, award-winning grounds include a small vineyard and herbary, while two large, pools (one is heated) vie for attention as well as the superb Fresh Wellness spa, a Martini lounge and a chilled-out wine bar.


Sporty types will love the tennis court and Gary Player-designed putting and chipping green.  Further afield, The Cellars-Hohenort is ideally situated for getting to Cape Point, Robben Island and Table Mountain, or joining the Constantia Valley Wine Route.  Tastings can easily be arranged.
