Steenberg Hotel

Golf Resort & Spa , Constantia


Hotel locations don’t come better: Steenberg is just 20 minutes from both Cape Town and False Bay’s beaches, and yet buried deep in Constantia Valley – home to South Africa’s densest concentration of award-winning wine-producers.  The Cape’s oldest farm, this particular 300-year-old estate affords views all the way to the Atlantic from its vineyards, gardens, pool and golf course.  Framing a tree-lined courtyard, three farmhouse buildings at its centre retain 17th-century character despite a tasteful refurbishment.


The 24 options range from Standard Luxury Rooms up to five suites.  Premier Rooms are most contemporary, while sunny barn chambers and atmosphere digs in the original Manor House suit those seeking a rustic or colonial, old-world vibe. Every one has wi-fi and air-conditioning.  Suites come with their own lounge, kitchen, fireplace, stand-alone bathtub and private butler.  Offering added character, Heritage Suites are themed around former occupiers of the region.


Both excellent restaurants – fine-dining Catharina’s and more relaxed Bistro Sixteen82 – are open all day.  Bistro Sixteen82 also includes a raw-food counter, and lies adjacent to a state-of-the-art wine-tasting room.  The Steenberg Magna Carta is especially exceptional.  Elsewhere, there’s a champagne bar, the opulent Ginkgo Spa and – out among pristine flowerbeds and manicured lawns – a large, secluded swimming pool.


Hotel guests receive priority bookings at the championship-level, 18-hole Steenberg Golf Course.  You can also embark on guided vineyard tours, or simply the stroll the grounds and read a book somewhere quiet.  If you do decide to leave, daily scheduled shuttles to Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and complimentary chauffeur rides to anywhere within a 5km radius make life easy.  Table Mountain is close, and there’s lots of local hiking, birdwatching and biking to enjoy.

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
